The Tung-Sol EL84/6BQ5 was a popular OEM tube for American-made EL84/6BQ5 guitar amplifiers, such as those built by Gibson and Harmony. Due to its rugged construction and conservative ratings, it is the most reliable current production EL84 type available for use in Vox AC-30 type amplifiers. In addition, its linearity and tone characteristic make it the ideal replacement for EL84 hi-fi amplifiers, such as those built by Fisher, Scott, and Harmon-Kardon. ***PLEASE NOTE***, due to the large diameter of this tube, it may not fit in some Marshall, BadCat or Vox models.

Customer Reviews

VERY nicely matched Review by Wes
First time trying something other than the standard Sovteks and put these in (will try the EL84M's at some point). These came very closely matched; it ain't just marketing. Bias was a snap. These are in a modified Blues Jr which actually is quite "Vox-y" sounding. The amp is generally run with the master volume way up and controlled like a traditional amp. These have a bit more warmth and overall consistency than the standard Sovteks, with less fizziness in the highs from a Strat or Jazzmaster.

Reputation for service & quick shipping preceded and I wasn't disappointed at all. Another 5-star tube vendor on what, these days, is a very short list. Highly recommended.
Thanks! (Posted on 8/17/14)
