EL84 JJ Electronic power tubes
I have been playing for many years and there is no doubt in my mind that JJ tubes are a great bang for the buck and the EL84 tube is no exception, performing time and time again.
They are reliable tubes at a great price and have met the needs of musicians throughout the world.
I find them to work well across the many styles of music I like to play. They can be bright, chime (sparkly), nice mids yet have a nice bottom end..
EL84 JJ Electronic Power Tubes, do they break up well..?
Well, I am a bit bias on this subject as I am a fan of the EL84 tube in general and for anyone who has spoken to me on the phone, they will tell you I am a fan overall of the JJ range.
I love them. I think they have the right stuff when it comes to what you should be looking for in a tube. JJ has built an EL84 that really has beautiful cleans but breaks up in the right way when pushed. I recognise that sound is personal and not everyone will agree however IF you are thinking of trying EL84s in your amps and you have never tried JJs then I think you are missing out on one of the greatest performing tubes on the market.
