Now Special 6 players can enjoy the earlier breakup, distinctive midrange complexity and legendary top end chime that only an EL84 can provide. The Special 6 EL84 adapter works in other 6V6 amps as well. Check with your amp tech to be sure your amp's voltages don't exceed the maximum ratings for an EL84.

    Comments about VHT Special 6 EL84 Adapter:

    This affordable way to take your VHT ultra and switch Power Tube from a 6V6 to a EL84 for a more British Tone. VHT hit a home run order this adaptor and a power tube and its the hottest combo amp out there. I bought JJ tubes I also replaced the Pre amp Tubes with JJ tubes. I now have more tone and defined notes and if I want GAIN it is the BEST sounding TUBE COMBO ON THE PLANET! Musicians Friends sales staff helped with my order as usual pure Top Shelf Help.

        Comments about VHT Special 6 EL84 Adapter:

        Adapter for using EL84 tube is EL34/6L6 type plug. Application in my case was in a Jet City Picovalve with 12AT7 in VA and 12AU7 in V2. I really like the EL84 sounds in this set up but only with humbuckers. sounds muddy with single coils but I have my DRR for that anyway. Gave me a really chunky overdrive sound I was looking for, much like PUSA sound in "Poor Little Me".

        Nice little item for helping you find your favorite amp tones. Can be used with other amps, too, I believe. If these weren't available in the past, they should have been.

            Used to replace the standard 6V6 tube in VHT amps with an EL84. Makes the VHT amp sound like a classic Fender tube amp. Nice.
