Choosing the right power tubes for your amplifier is, arguably, as important as choosing the right chord progression for your next song. When you want to play it loud, these are the tubes that will make that happen. Fortunately, Groove Tubes has been in the game for 30 years, and in that time they've risen to the top shelf with amazing tubes that have landed in the amplifiers of guitar heroes like Slash and Nils Lofgren. If you're looking for seriously impressive tubes, look no further. One of the darlings of the power tube section is undeniably the 6L6 style tube. Groove Tubes has a great selection of these, which are found in amps such as Fender's Hot Rod, Blues DeVille, Pro Tube and BF reissue series. With options like the GT-6L6-GE, modeled after the original "clear top" 6L6 of the 1960s, as well as the European-style GT-6L6-S and Russian-made GT-6L6-R, there's plenty of choice to satisfy your tastes in this iconic tube design.
The EL34 is another classic power tube, and like the 6L6, Groove Tubes has a few to choose from. For instance, there's the GT-EL34-M, which is based on the ever-popular XF2 Dual Getter. The GT-EL34-R is Russian-made and a favorite for UK-style amplifiers. If you'd like something economical for your amp's V2 to V6 stages, you should also consider the Silver Series ST-EL34-R Power Tube.
Of course, the EL34 is not to be confused with the EL84. If it's the '84 you're looking for, then you need to look at the GT-EL84-R and GT-EL84-S. The 'R' is a Russian-made tube that should last you a long time and produces a bit of aggression at overdriven levels. By contrast, the 'S' is European and delivers consistent response with power and warmth. These EL84 tubes are especially ideal for recording use.
No one can deny the great quality of Groove Tubes power tubes - not even the greats. Chances are high that you've heard the impressive effects of these tubes in the sounds of bands like Green Day and Anthrax, who have loaded their amps with Groove Tubes to create the tone they need for the world's biggest stages and studios.
