EL34 valve power

The EL34 is known for having a healthy growl and pronounced midrange, and helped to define the ‘British’ amp sound. Combine with a footswitchable boost, series FX loop and Celestion Seventy-80 12” speaker, and this thing practically plays itself. Plug in, turn it up and let the valve do the talking.

6L6 valve power

If the EL34 growls, the 6L6 whispers softly. Known for less midrange emphasis and a smoother sound overall, it helped to define the classic American valve-amp sound. Expect sparkling cleans and responsive dynamics. Combine with a footswitchable boost, series FX loop and Celestion Seventy-80 12” speaker, and this thing practically plays itself. Plug in, turn it up and let the valve do the talking.

KT88 valve power

The KT88 has a reputation for handling higher gain – it takes extra output and tidies it up. The result is crystal-clarity in everything you play, no matter how much gain is on tap. This could be considered the high-gain member of the family. Combine with a footswitchable boost, series FX loop and Celestion Seventy-80 12” speaker, and this thing practically plays itself. Plug in, turn it up and let the valve do the talking.
