            Wanted a quad of JJs and this is the way to get that at MF. Got a cathode biased amp that is hard on output tubes. Ruby must test these good because they hold up. And they are JJs so they sound good. Me like. This is my second purchase of them.

                  First, the RUBY EL84CZ set received are actually JJ labeled tubes with RUBY providing their matching/grading. I needed a set for my Fender PRO JR that original Sovtek's had drifted apart by 30% and were mechanically noisy (rattling). I had researched these RUBY tubes and knew they are actually JJ's and that was fine with me. The set received were perfectly matched (within 1ma) of each other. She is much quieter now with the new Ruby's vs. the worn Sovteks.

                    i received the tubes defective. When i put them in a blues jr. every time i started the amp a loud, high-pitched squeal was produced and then died. and at any volume that could be used for a band practice the amp would start to produce the same squeal, very different from anything i've heard from an amp. i put back in the old tubes and i could not reproduce the noise. so i believe there is a short or something inside the tube. go buy ehx tubes they seem to be consistent for me at least and a better sound.

                    Well, I had to replace the old tubes in my Marshall, so i got this. I was entirely satisfied. I noticed the volume of my amp drastically increased. They can get a really good sound, I'm sure there are better, but this tube is solid.

                    The word that keeps coming to mind is UNINSPIRING. Tried in a Pro Junior and Mesa Boogie Maverick, the tube didn't have the SLIGHTEST bit of clarity. You can tell it is a well MADE tube- no undue compression and it had solid low end, but that's where the compliments stop. The tube made each amp (while using humbuckers, P-90's, Tele, and Strat pickups) sound like it was clogged up in the all-important mids- not much of a value. I'm going with the Electro-Harmonix offering.
