A low-power pentode power tube, the EL84 was popularized in early Vox AC30 amps. Rediscovered by Matchless amps and now currently used by nearly every tube amp company, this tube design is making a major comeback, and the GT-EL84R Power Tubes Duet arrives to give you a premium version. This Russian tube features quick, soft overdrive distortion, with a little aggressive edge when pushed. It's especially awesome for recording jobs with low-power amps. Available in pairs.
