Sovtek Tube EL84 Pair
I emailed Bob at Eurotubes and he’s telling me that the Groove Tube EL84’s I’ve got in my Classic 50 are probably the Sovteks which he claims are “brittle” in the high end.
I haven’t noticed the brittleness but then I’ve nothing to compare the tone to. Thanks for any insight. I know that Eurotubes only sells JJ’s so I’m sl84 there’s the sales sovgek going on but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a point It’s true that Groove Tubes relabels stuff but I honestly would check with one of the dealers that sell everything like Doug at www.
I’m not saying Bob is wrong because he is a smart guy but no one tube is the perfect solution for every amp. Originally posted by Sordid1 It’s true that Groove Tubes relabels stuff but I honestly would check with one of the dealers that sell everything like Doug at www.
Just wondering what people think of the two Originally posted by sovteek Anyone know the diff between these? Hey Ive changed the tubes on my Boogie DC-3 from JJ to Sovtek, i’ve noticed that a little drop on volume have occur and a brittle sounding more fuzzier. More Gain, fuzzier, brighter. Smoother, Louder and less top end.
The sovtek’s have more gain, but it really doesnt make it sound heavier no matter how weird this is. I’ve personally dont like the change, thinking to put the JJs back again. If you get your tubes from Bob at Eurotubes, he’ll likely match them to your particular amp. An amp like the Classic 50 with 4 EL84’s, usually run better with “colder” lower milliamp tubes.

Some EL84 amps run really high voltages and will eat the wrong tubes quickly. If you can still find any, the Russian Military ‘s would sound pretty good fl84 your amp. Better than the JJ’s in my experience. I like them a lot better than the JJ’s, personally. They’re advertised as a Military tube thus the “M”but eo84 not the same as the ‘s I spoke of.
At least they look and sound like JJ’s to me. If you want the truth and not a bunch of runaround,give the Lord a call. He is a smaller hands-on guy who really knows tubes.
I just bought a quad of old ‘s for my Nomad. I bought JJ EL84’s for it before that and wasn’t overly impressed. I like the E-H EL84 better. Ssovtek posted by cvogue Hmm Next time you are in a Guitar Center check out the GT display sovte you will see they are marked differently.
Just took some Sovteks out of a classic 50 and replaced them with JJs. Much darker sounding tubes, which work great to tame the classic series.
It all depends on the amp. For what it’s worth, I would avoid EI because I’ve heard many people say they don’t last long. Heard some good things about EH, but they have more top end.
I would probably only put them in an amp that’s voiced darker to start with. More info than what you asked, but just what I’ve heard.
