Yes, these are EL84's and that is what is used in the AC30. All NOS power tubes have the ability to be matched in pairs and quads. There would be a $5.00 per pair fee for matching. The ability to match power tubes by specs and by brand is based on current inventory. Generally we need a quantity of at least 50+ to match tubes by brand and spec. Please contact us at 480-296-0890 or for our current offerings.

This is not the same as the 6JT6A and only other 6JT6's are compatible.

I have an Epiphone Valve Jr 5w head, I got a Genalex Gold Lion and Mullard reissue tubes for it and felt the Genalex was worth the extra money for the tone and fidelity I got. Now that I got a NOS EL84 from AP the step up was worth it, they don't make them like this anymore.
The tube I got and its box were in immaculate condition, and this tube will not be leaving this amp until it goes microphonic, or the amp blows up.
