From our review, "When driven into distortion it starts off a bit crunchy like a 6L6 but as you push it, the sound blooms into that singing EL34 tone with great sustain and modest compression." From the manufacturer: "The Tungsol EL34-B is a higher impedance EL34 tube design with increased touch responsiveness and a unique clipping characteristic with a hint of the 6L6 sound."

The Tung-Sol name and trademark have been acquired by the New Sensor Corporation. This new production Tungsol tube is manufactured at their Xpo-Pul factory (also known as Reflektor) in Saratov, Russia. New Sensor is an American corporation and since taking ownership of this factory has been steadily improving the quality of current production tubes.

Best new (after 1990) production EL-34 I have used


I have been building tube amps since the 1980s for hi-fi and guitar. I still have a nice stash of US and Euro made NOS tubes. These are the first new production (China, Russia, East Euro) made tubes I have used that actually can hang with the originals. I love these tubes. They are excellent. If you are looking for EL34s, you should definitely give these a try.

great tube !!


i had a quad commin stock in a marshall 1959slp reissue...man i fell in love with these tubes.....there very smooth with detail midrange...and clear highs very musical tube in general.....the same tubes please sir

Just buy them


Replaced some JJ KT77's with these in a Yaqin amp. Better in every way. More three dimensional soundstage, way better vocal quality. These are brighter and clearer all the way around.

May Favorite EL34 for Marshalls


I put these tubes in all my vintage Marshalls. They give a more detailed high-end than any other tube I've tried (Winged C's, JJ's, Svetlanas). Reliability has been great. Highly recommend.

Sweet tubes

Retubed my Hiwatt DR504. Had the EH tubes an amp tech put in there when I had the caps changed. That was about ten or so years ago. One of them was acting up so I changed them both out. I let them cook for a couple of hours before playing. Hiwatt’s always better warm. I was stunned. Absolutely beautiful. Never used a pedal. Just played that old Britt amp clean. Very nice tubes.
