RFT is a German brand. The RFT EF86 is a durable tube with very low microphonics. It's a fantastic tube for Dr. Z, Matchless, Vox, and similar amps. They are slightly darker sounding than many other EF86 tubes.



Our stock was received in bulk packs so we have packaged these RFT EF86 tubes in our own white boxes.



Logos may vary from tube pictured, but construction is the same.

Not "magical"

by

Is it a good functioning tube? Yes. Is it noisy and microphonic? (like many ef86's) yes. Tried it in my Dr.Z, in my Matchless clone and my Badcat. still as noisy/pingy as the Generic EH tube i replaced. I have an old Amperex tube that sounds great and is the quietest ef86 i have ever used, was hoping this would be as good. sadly it is not. Works fine, sounds ok, but not worth the increased cost. Also have a winged C tube that performs better for almost half the cost (still a little noisy though)

Sounds absolutely fantastic in my Artisan 30

I bought this to give the EF86 channel on my Artisan 30 some more body and warmth compared to the stock Electro Harmonix, and I am very happy with the results. This tube brings me home in terms of the amps sonic abilities. Exactly what I was looking for.��These things are subjective, but this tube brought my amp to life (I did also replace the stock sovtek EL84's with Tungsrams). The channel now sounds fuller and deeper, without loosing anything in the highs. It's still shimmery and brilliant in the top. Very clear and detailed.
