EL34 Valve GOLD Matched Quad
This is a UK Gold matched quad (four valves) of the highly regarded uprated EL34-B version of the classic EL34 valve from Shuguang, with anode maximum dissipation raised from 25 Watts to 30 Watts for longer life and reliability, so you can push these valves harder without "red plating" them.
We have fully tested and checked these valves in the UK and burnt them in under normal working conditions for at least 30 hours to allow time for them to settle to stabilised operation. We use sine and square wave test signals and monitor the valve outputs on an oscilloscope, as well as listening to music through them under a range of bias conditions.
Brand new and an ideal replacement for standard EL34 valves in Marshall or other guitar amplifiers or Hi-Fi audio amps, or for use in DIY build stereo Push Pull or parallel output Single Ended amplifiers.

Shuguang EL34 testimonials from around the Web, with acknowledgment and thanks...
“The sound is very clear with good dynamic range. Top end has nice extension but never bright, with great texture in the mids and bass.”
“I find the Shuguang EL34-B to be a very warm sounding tube with a magic midrange. Highs are excellent, but not to sharp. The bass is there but also very well controlled. After about 100 hours they really come alive. They are much louder and CLEARER then the other tubes I've tried. That's the true magic of this tube, the clarity, they really help my Triangle Celius 202 speakers image very well. They also produce a very accurate and uncolored sound. For the money, I can't imagine they can be beat.”
"The sound is loud and clear with a very nice sonic range. Not excessive in tops, mids, or bass, they are accurately described as well balanced. The sample tested had no audible microphonics and an average background noise level. Harmonic content was rich, lending that pleasant "swirl" and sustain that guitar players crave"
“.... if I had to pick one for best tone it’d be the Shuguang EL34-B….Once I can convince a customer to try the EL34-B, they almost always come back for more. The Shuguang folks make excellent glass….”
