5.00 out of 5 based on 5 reviews

These are the best sounding NEW EL84 tubes for guitar amps -especially Marshall, Vox and the Fender "hot rod" series amps. These tubes slide right into a smooth, harmonically rich sounding over drive that slides right Into a screaming saturation at full volume. Ive heard the Russian glass doesn't fit some amps, and that would piss me off but fortunately I haven't encountered that problem.

Swapped out the stock JJ EL84 with the Mullard reissue in my Marshall Class 5 combo. The JJ sounded OK but stayed too clean until about 12 o'clock on the volume and even then the crunch was kind of harsh and buzzy. The Mullard starts getting crunchy around 3 1/2 and just keeps getting better. This little bottle is filled to the brim with that sweet Marshall crunch. If you are less than inspired with your Class 5 this tube will get you about as close as you can get to a Plexi with 5 watts and a single 10"

I really love these tubes. I don't know how close they actually compare to a real 60's Mullard 84 as I've never played the NOS ones to compare them directly. Without being able to compare them directly, I still want to say these come as close to NOS as you can get without paying 6X the price because I simply can't imagine them sounding any better. I put them in a BLC30 non-top boost(exact 1963 AC30 replica) and they literally made the amp sound twice as good as did with the over-bassy JJs that came stock in it. I put them in a 1997 Vox AC30 Top Boost as well. In both amps it really brings out the chiming harmonics that good Voxes are known for. Some of the best power tube break up characteristics I've ever heard with beautiful chime and jangle..very prominent harmonics, very powerful ballsy break up when cranked.

You will love these tubes! I have installed them in several different amps for customers and everyone notices the big difference they make in your sound. Described by customers as "fat,warm, round, curvaceous". The Mullards have warm,early break-up that just sings in distortion. Definite improvement over the usual Sovteks that most manufacturers use today. These tubes are the easiest way to improve your amp without modifications.

Get tone! Swapped out the china tubes that came in my Bad Cat Cougar 5 and what a difference!
