Ratings & Reviews
This is a excellent tube. Great sounding and long lived tube. Have a pair of these for my Marshall 73 1987 head too. EHX got the best tube for the money. Thumbs up..
I couldn't wait to replace them... Meh

2.5 stars and I'm being generous.
Bright, harsh, no power and With No soul
It's so subjective.
I like a British sound. Not bright or boomy. Less JBL, more B&W.
My amps are Brits from Tube Technology
Genesis MK3"s very high quality but they require a driver tube that can really put out.
Speakers are B&W 802"s not highly efficient at 90db /watt
Yet they are detailed and provide highly sophisticated sounds.
Heavy gauge silver wire
These tubes were absolutely incapable of powering my amps
They hurt my ears.
Muddy, no depth of Soundstage
I Replaced them with =C= reissue Svetlana EL34's
What a difference. Power without harshness.
On another note, the physical characteristics of these tubes is diminutive and narrower in circumference.
A good tube that sounds different from the legions of wannabe Mullard clones.
by Jarred Campbell
Their plates look awfully similar to the RFT EL34. In my Laney LA50TH these EHX EL34 tubes surprisingly have better tonal complexity, and harmonic detail than the RFT EL34 tubes. They have bit of a Telefunken thing going on with their tonality.
They have almost 50% of the tonal complexity, mid-range clarity, and harmonic detail of the winged plate Telefunken EL34. Do note even a Mullard EL34 xf2 rates somewhere around 70% in terms of those parameters against the winged plate Telefunken EL34
They have clean and detailed highs like the RFT EL34, and old Mullard EL34 xf1, however I'll have to admit that their highs aren't anywhere as clean and detailed as the Telefunken EL34. One thing I tend to dislike about Mullard EL34 xf2, and their clones is that they smear and distort the high end. It's good to have a new EL34 tube doesn't chase after the usual Mullard EL34 xf2 tone. If you like German EL34 of the past over British ones you'll like these tubes.
