See All Electro-Harmonix Power Tubes

These are Electro-Harmonix EL84EH power tubes in platinum matched sets. The EL84 is the most common low power pentode tube, popularized in early Vox AC30 amps. Rediscovered by Matchless amps and now currently used by nearly every tube amp company. Delivers quick, soft overdrive distortion, great for recording but usually too low volume for live gigs.

Electro-Harmonix' platinum matching process consists of a 24-hour tube burn-in period followed by a bias (plate) current measurement in milliamps.

Soft, medium, and hard style descriptions refer to break up modes of the tube for an overdriven guitar signal. Soft-rated tubes break up easier and have the least headroom, yielding a heavier, harder distortion. In comparison, hard-rated tubes break up easier and have the least headroom, yielding a heavier, harder distortion, while medium-rated tubes fall in between.

I ordered these tubes to change out the ones in my stock Bugera V22 amp with great results! My amp tended to be a little muddy and didn't have good tonal separation. These guys definitely helped to improve it's overall musicality. Worth the dollars....

Installed mine in my Hughes and Kettner Tubemeister. Sounded great for jangly soundeds like John Mayer or Red Hot Chili Peppers but got heavy easily (i bought the soft set) for Metallica, Rush, Alter Bridge. But after a week they lost their zing and checked the lights on the back of my amp giving me their status and it was time to change them. What the heck EH?
