Electro-Harmonix EL84 EH Power Vacuum Tube
The new EL84EH faithfully recreates the classic Mullard design. Tri-lam plate material and selected screen wire increase thermal dissipation. The EL84EH is a remarkable reproduction of a vintage tube that is capable of maintaining its sweet and musical tone under any voltage conditions. They do tend to pull more current. These tubes are great for Vox amps.
The safest tube along with Sovtek EL84 and M that you should use if you own a Jolida 102b or CRC. JJ is a fine tube Gold lion is a great tube but not recommended for the Jolida. The EH produces great tones and when broken in a very creamy sound, no not a GE or Sylvania but not bad.This tube takes as much heat as the Sovtek EL84M and holds up,recommended by Michael Allen of Jolida.

Just swapped out the JJs in my Orange Dual Terror with these and the 12ax7s.
I didn’t know there was this much smooth low end in this head.

Replaced the stock Chinese EL84's in my VOX AC10C1 (along with the 12AX7's and a Jensen C10Q 16-ohm speaker) and the amp has come alive! Frequency response is much wider; the VOX chime is there and tube microphonics are all gone as well. Excellent pre-amp and power tubes from EH; very happy with the results.

Really nice tubes. We use these in amps repairs all the time and they perform pretty well. For the money they are nice tubes.
