Musical, modern, affordable rectifier.

I came here to order some JJ GZ34, the most elastic, relaxed of the current production GZ34/5ar4 tubes, fo some hifi amps. They were out of stock; "email to notify when in stock..."

So I tried these, based on Tubestore's reputation and my experience with their STR 274B and EL34 Chinese production tubes.

Well, this is a very fine sounding rectifier right out of the box. I got a new pair of custom-design KT150 single-ended-tetrode hifi amps and had some NOS Mullard GZ34s. Now those are usually great but in some amps they have an excessively tight-sphincter sound which can be choking, peaky and inauthentic in some circuits. I had a female vocals peaky screech with the vintage NOS Brits. But this tube levelled everything out; ameliorated the the dynamic constriction and delivered full bodied, authentic tone.
