Sovtek EL84 6BQ5

Clear

Description

New Sovtek EL84 / 6BQ5 Power Pentode. This Russian EL84 is extremely reliable and good sounding. Amplifier manufacturers like Mesa Boogie, Fender, Crate and Peavey have used these in their production. It has exceptionally sturdy construction so they withstand a combo amp well. When pushed hard in a guitar amp it can produce a pleasing warm, smooth distortion but are crystal clear in Hi-Fi use. Excellent replacements in vintage VOX AC-30’s.

    Beautiful NOS double matched tubes at the best price by far.
    These are highly rated and Nesstone service and products are top notch.

    This company did me right, a nice match on a quad of 2012 Sovtek EL84s. In my AC30TB they sound great, guieter at idle than my old quad of 6P14P Saratovs. The price here is unbeatable anywhere, a great deal! Thank you!

    Best Price; fast shipping. These were same brand as originals on my Peavy Delta Blues, but these sound brighter. I’m very happy with them.

    Plugged these matched tubes into my Carvin X60A 60 watt amp. Fired it up and was pleased to hear that crunchy sound of overdriven sound. Very happy with the service and great products at a reasonable price. Have already placed another order for some Preamp tubes this time. Thank you for getting my amp up and working.

    My reviews got mixed up although I am still very satisfied with my matched EL84 tunes for my Peavey Bravo amplifier. Looking forward to the next order when I can swap out the preamp tubes to check them out in my Bravo combo amplifier. Thank you kindly.

    Thanks Craig for packing the tube’s well and delivered quickly.
    It took around 10hours to break in.
    I am using Sovtek EL84s on my Leben integrated amplifier for the output/power tube’s. It’s really fantastic, the sound stage is bigger & also to mention the distortion is not noticed.

    Really enjoying

    Thanks,
    Venkat

    Unfortunately My Amp has other issues besides tubes. So I did not get a chance to put them to the full power test. Pretty evenly matched only one slightly different.

    Bought a quad of these for a modded crate v32 palomino at first I didnt care for them , they broke up to early for me. But after a few hours on them they burned in and woke up. Now they have a nice warm fat tone , not to bright and enough head room now. Ordered another set.
