Mullard EL84 / 6BQ5 New Production Power Vacuum Tube
The new production Mullard EL84 / 6BQ5 is another re-born classic from New Sensor. With lush mids and punchy bass, these guys are sure to please even the most demanding boutique EL84 amp owner.
NOTE: Due to the larger diameter of the glass envelope, this EL84 will NOT fit in the following amplifiers:
I make and sell valve amps, mostly based around EL84 designs. I have shipped with JJ branded valves since I first began production but I was curious about the new Mullards, so I thought I should check them out. In my single-ended amps the Mullards have a thick mid-heavy tone and a soft early power breakup that is a welcome change from the very up-front JJ EL84 - well worth a try, especially for the blues players. The tradeoff for the added smoothness is a lower perceived volume.
