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.

Peavey EL84 Matched Pair

Groove Tube's Gold Series EL84. The warmest Groove Tube in this family. It remains very buttery, with relatively high power output and very even response. A great replacement for many modern stock amps, overcoming a variety of design issues and limitations in inexpensive tube amps.

The JJ Electronic EL844 is a variation on the classic tube which reduces the overall headroom by 25%. With the reduced power, hitting that rich distortion that the EL84 is notorious for is more manageable. This tube will hit full saturated power tube sounds without having to crank the amps volume as high which makes them a great choice for recording as well as home / bedroom use.

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.

Genalex Gold Lion N709 / EL84 power pentode tube. Made in Russia. 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.

Tube Amp Doctor opted for the thickest glass possible and the heaviest construction available, just like the Russian EL84M, and combined these features with the sonically most promising cathode plate option. The sound can be described as very harmonic in the middle and treble frequencies, without adding too much power to the bass.
