The Most Versatile EL34

Sensational new high-gain EL34 tube with a very dynamic tone. An authentic remake of the British Mullard EL34. The clear and harmonic open top end allows for great clean tone and at the same time the TAD EL34B-STR offers incredibly powerful mids and equally powerful bass. The golden control grid and especially large cooling grids guarantee maximum stability and reliability. Consequently, this EL34 provides a maximum of gain and dynamic response.

This tube is the best choice for all Marshall®, Hiwatt®, Orange® etc.
Can replace any 6CA7 or KT77.

Highly recomended.
They look and feel really well built and sturdy, with what appears to be a thicker glass and thicker plates. They are 'fatter' than the regular EL34 and some people even mistake them for KT88 when they are mounted on the amp.
They seem to have more output than the regular ones and also more bite/attack and dynamics.

Outstanding Power Tube
It is most probably the best sounding production EL34 tube for Marshall Amplifiers your money can buy.

The matched pair fitted as a glove in my JCM800 2205

Szuper gyors szálítás. Nem kell megijedni az első hangok után minimum 2 óra kell neki azután kezd beindulni. Nem beszélve arról, amikor már ment egy napot. Egyre jobb, mindenhol.Szuper jó cső jó áron.

Super fast deliverys. Do not be afraid of the sound after the first must be a minimum of 2 hours after starting to get to him. Not to mention that when I went for a day. It's getting better, good mindenhol.Super tube at a good price.

So I'm trying out a bunch of different pre and power amp tubes for my Laney GH50L. (Nothing wrong with it, I just love toying around with different tones.) These TAD EL43B-STR's came stock in my Laney head.

So after all the raving and praise I'd read online about SED Winged C EL34's, the 'Holy Grail' of EL34's, I just had to have some. Apparently they were going to make my amp blast off into the outer rings of Saturn and beam back transmissions, proving life on other planets, tone-wise.

No. Such. Luck. The SED's sound like dog farts compared to these large bottle/plate TAD's.

When I installed the SED's there was a very noticeable drop in bass and low mids, and the upper mids and highs were pushed. But not in a good way, sorta 'noisy'. And when I turned the master volume up the top end gain became 'fizzy'. They were just plain crappy in comparison to these TAD EL34's.

If you ever get the chance, hold an SED Winged-C EL34 and one of these TAD's side by side and you'll see how much bigger everything on these TAD's are. Bottles, plates, getter, etc...all bigger. And then install them in your amp and you'll hear an immediate increase in volume, and just an overall bolder tone. Still crisp and clear on the top end, nice smooth mids, but no fizz, and a bunch more bottom. I'm a believer in these EL34B-STR's! Even if they are MIC! (Are they?...lol)
