Electro Harmonix EL34 Power Tube
The new Electro Harmonix EL34 tube is extremely musical, with a sound that is rich, smooth, and highly detailed without being edgy. It is the perfect EL34 for vintage equipment and a sure way to improve the performance of modern equipment.
According to the technical journal, Vacuum Tube Valley, the “…new EL34-EH tube comes very close to the sonics of a Mullard EL34…” They go on to say, “The Electro-Harmonix tube is balanced throughout the entire music spectrum. Bass goes deep and is tight, mids are sweet and well defined and highs are detailed and extended.”
When should I use an Electro Harmonix EL34?
The EL34 is found in many British guitar amps and is associated with the “British Tone” as compared to the 6L6 which is generally associated with the “American Tone”
The EL34 was introduced in 1953 by Mullard and its parent company Philips and, although no longer made by them, is now manufactured by JJ, Svetlana and Sovtek, Electro-Harmonix and Tung-Sol.
