Super Premium power pentode, highest quality in current production. Perfect for Vox AC30, from soft overdrive and organic sustain to great harmonic crunch. Used in many vintage HiFi applications.

  • Unique single halo type getter & plate coating
  • N709/6BQ5 equivalent

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.

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.

The Sovtek EL84 series produce an unbeatable smooth, warm, distortion. Excellent replacements in vintage VOX AC-30s and the like. 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.
