Tube Amp Doctor - EL34-SVT Premium - Power Tubes

Save $20.00
Original price $199.00
Current price $179.00

Legendary winged "C" selected from the original Svetlana production

The Svetlana EL34 is very dependable and our recommended choice for combos. It has little less power, but therefor a nicely balanced tone with fine heights, very detailed and musical mids and just the right amount of bass. This tube is another example where our TAD burn-in and matching processes optimize the sound potential of any tube: the clear and lively tone and its three-dimensional character that can be achieved with matched TAD tubes speaks for itself.

The TAD EL34-SVT is identical to the stock tube used by Marshall for the JCM2000 TSL/DSL series. It is the only EL34 version that we do recommend for these amp models.


Q: When does a power tube become a Premium Selected power tube?

A: All power tubes labeled Premium Selected have passed the following tests:

  • Plate Current (PC) and Amplification (TC)
  • Low Noise Test
  • Microphonic Test
  • Sonic Tests
  • Shock Tests
  • Listening Tests
  • Shorts & Leakage Tests


Premium RT-Matching of Power Tubes

Our Premium Matching is an exact matching of power tubes with identical Plate Current (PC) and Transconductance (TC).

TAD Premium Selected tubes are guaranteed for a period of 6 months (according to terms of warranties) for the quality criteria mentioned above.
