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's 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 harder and have the most headroom, yielding a cleaner, clearer distortion, while medium-rated tubes fall in between.
