The JJ Electronic EL84 is a solidly built EL84 / 6BQ5 with excellent tonal qualities. JJ’s rugged construction of this tube offers high reliability without any compromise to the sound. This tube has solid lows with warm bright mids and shimmery highs. When saturated the harmonics are rich and dynamic. The JJ EL84 nails the classic sound of this tube. This tube can replace any EL84 or 6BQ5 tube.

Good tube at a fair price, and the Apex matching can be a real plus. Work well in guitar amps, more reliable than most and response seems balanced.

I discovered JJ tubes about a year ago after obtaining some new amps and starting a business of repairing them. I find these to be great sounding and recommend them to customers as a low cost option to re tubing with NOS or other more expensive brands. I can attest by doing several sounds tests that JJs, especially these EL84s, sound great, provide a wide range of tone, and do well at bringing dead amps back to life. I've tried GTs, EHs, and Sovteks as singles and in matched kits and I can say that JJs usually out perform the other kinds hands down. Great product!

A great EL84 tube and less than half the price of some of the Russian and Chinese EL84-like tubes. Based on my experience with different amps from Scott and VOX to new Fenders this is the only authentic performing EL84 being made. The Russian "EL84" tubes are all based on an old Russian millitary type which is similar to an EL84 but not quite the same thing and its noticeable. The Chinese versions all seem to be copies of the Russian Types. I cant recommend this tube highly enough if you cant afford the exorbitant high price of NOS tubes.These are made just like an old Amperex or Valvo anyway.

I replaced all the tubes in my Mesa Boogie Duel Rectifier with these tubes and they sound terrific. Still have that Mesa clean sound and can easily kick into dirty biting Mesa distortion it is famous for. Not bad, given I paid less than half of the price of fancy tubes.
