Telefunken EL84-TK overview

  • 1Description

The Telefunken EL84-TK Black Diamond Series Vacuum Tube is ideal for use in guitar amplifiers and hi-fi equipment in homes, studios, and live stage applications. For personal enjoyment or commercial recording, it grants a detailed, bell-like chime and clearly distinguished sound. In a smaller footprint than an EL34, this pentode tube delivers a characteristic "British" tone and up to 17W of output power.

Ideal replacement for any EL84/6BQ5 tube
Thermionic valve of the power pentode type
Great for guitar amplifiers and hi-fi equipment
Originally designed for the output stages of audio frequency amplifiers
Delivers up to 17W while remaining compact
Similar to an EL34 with a lower output power
When overdriven, EL84 power tubes contribute to a distinctive chiming and articulate sound when compared to 6L6 tubes
Each tube is meticulously measured for all critical parameters of performance including transconductance, gain, noise, and microphonics
Tubes are selected by hand, rigorously tested, subjected to an extended burn-in period for stability, and remeasured before final packing
