Best EL-84 yet
I have a new to me Morgan AC40 Custom Shop I run through a solid pine 2x12 Swart cab with 2 Celestion Gold 16 Ohm speakers. I wanted to get the Beatles & Taste/Rory Gallagher ac30 twang and drive. Generally only a tuner and a treble booster (Skullmaster or Gamut 3 knob) and other times straight in. I started with JJs as everyone's first recommendation. Meh. Second was the Polish Telam tubes and those are really rich in harmonics and I would have been happy had I not tried this Preferred Series EL-84. This one presses all the right buttons with this set up and works equally well clean or dirty and humbuckers or single coils! I should mention that this amp allows a 2 x 12ax7 or an EF86 and 12ax7. And this EL-84 works well with both. I don't have the box, but when I ordered I asked for something between Medium and Hard.
