Vacuum Tube - EL84 / 6BQ5, Tung-Sol Reissue

Starting at: $16.75
In Stock

Due to many requests by fans, the Tung-Sol EL84/6BQ5 has been reissued. The Tung-Sol EL84 / 6BQ5 was a popular OEM tube for American-made EL84 / 6BQ5 guitar amplifiers, such as those built by Gibson and Harmony. Due to its rugged construction and conservative ratings, it is the most reliable current production EL84 type available for use in Vox AC-30 type amplifiers. In addition, its linearity and tone characteristic make it the ideal replacement for EL84 hi-fi amplifiers, such as those built by Fisher, Scott, and Harmon-Kardon. Tube measurements are as follows:

  • Height: 2.75” (without pins)*
  • Diameter: 0.87”*

*Note: Due to the method of production in regards to the glass, measurements may vary slightly.

These will have a bit more gain that the JJ's and have a nice amount of articulation.

I changed all the tubes from the stock Chinese to Tung-Sol in my Vox AC15 C1 guitar amp. What a difference. I had a constant hum from the stock Chinese tubes. With the matched set of Tung-Sol EL84, the hum disappeared, so I'm very pleased.

I'm running a quad of these in my Delta Blues 1-15. I chose these based on the comparison of EL-84s and my excellent results with a quad of Tung-Sols 6L6 GC STRs in my Twin. I'm very happy with them.. good articulation and they seem very 'musical'. I use this amp for pedal steel mostly, so I appreciate the clean tones and string separation. Pretty easy to dial ups some dirt for lap steel and armpit guitar, too!
Very satisfied.

Apex matched pair to replace no name China tubes in my 15W Monoprice amp. Great tubes.
