Definitely 6L6 in my opinion, has that more defined and heavier "american" tone. Those are nuances but you can feel them if you played both.

IMO every EVH amp since the first 5150 sounds killer, you simply can't go wrong. Better invest more time looking for the right size and features you need, rather than the specific generation.
