Once the most common low-power pentode power tube, the EL84 was popularized in early Vox amplifiers
Developed by Phillips in 1953, the EL84 was originally used in tube radios before being adopted by Watkins and Vox amplifiers
Classic "British Sound"
Hand Tested & Matched in Quartets (a set of 4 tubes)
90 Day Manufacturer Warranty Included
Exhibits many of the same characteristics as the EL34, but with a power output of roughly 5-8 watts. Very creamy and smooth; used in many modern class “A” amps. Nearly every modern tube amp company produces a small amp, and Groove Tubes EL84's are a perfect upgrade for any stock tube in these amps. Great for recording and rehearsal; with a soft and tactile touch, rich harmonic response and pleasingly musical top end. A solid performer - good quality and long lasting. Tends to be a little more aggressive and edgy when pushed into overdrive. This version is a little brighter, but still has a nice smooth top end.
