TAD EL34 REDBASE™ providesClassic EL34 Sound - Excellent Tone and Maximum Lifetime!
So far so good!
I purchased these a few weeks ago and I've had them in my victory sheriff 44 since they came in the post. Not knowing what to expect they were a pleasant surprise tonally. They really brought my Sheriff to life and everything is really defined now from the lows through the mids and the highs. I can't stop playing this amp since I've put these in and I've even ordered another set. They came perfectly matched and so far I haven't experienced any bias drift but I can only comment on the past two weeks, I'll give a follow up review once I've had them long enough to. The reason I gave 8/10 is one it's very hard to be a perfect ten and two I haven't had them long enough to know anything about them over two weeks. At the moment I can't get enough of them playing wise, well done TAD!
THE best tube when it comes to EL34
THE best tube when it comes to EL34. Took it since the old TAD EL34B-STR is currently not available.
...and then tested them after a short time also immediately for my Marshall JVM410H. Had not thought that this investment brings me so much happiness ;-)
Outstanding is the powerful amplification and physical pressure.
The JVM as a high gain amp now has such a clean bass punch without being artificial.
The signature Marshall midrange character complements great with silky and pleasant highs and harmonics.
I am pleased to say the performance of these Redbase EL34-STR tubes absolutely justify the price.
Therefore, I now plunge into costs and also treat my Fender Twin Reverb with TAD redbase tubes, just need to find out whether the 6L6GCM-STR or the 6L6WGC-STR would suit better. I'm curious ;-)
Congratulations for the new EL34 Redbase, i absolutely love them - perfect for an EL34 -thumbs up!

I tried for the moment in MZero and Trinity 100W heads and they sound gorgeous with an amazing open tone, angry as i like, in your face, with correct mids and high-mids, great low-mids and good bass response (E34L JJ are tighter, but i's a very "dry" tube).
They have their own personality - perfect for an EL34 - they are somehow in the middle between the old STR's and the E34L's JJ.
Anyway, thumbs up!
Just as described by TAD and really close to the originals winged NOS Telefunken.
