Out of the ones I've tried I've liked Svetlanas the most. Not Sovtek/Svetlana, but the "winged C" Svetlana. I think they go by SED in USA?

I like JJ E34Ls. I keep trying others; EH, Winged C, Svetlana, etc... but keep going back. They just sound more robust, especially in the top end.

I just got some Winged C Svets and both matched quads are microphonic and buxzzing like hell. Me no likey. I sent one set back and got a replacement and they still do it.

If you take a JJ EL34 and a Mullard XF2,
you'll see how the insides look identical,
That said, I think the JJ is the best sounding
current production, but the Wing C svet
is more reliable.
Why I switched to the C. They sound good
too, but the JJ is a step better tonally.
NOS? Mullard EL34's can't be beat,
I'm stocked for life!

Interesting. Doug, are you talking about JJ's regular EL34, or the bigger "E34L" that they sell. From my recollection of their construction and your comments, I would assume the former but I thought I'd ask. Thanks!

"winged C".....someone states they sound more "hi-fi" with less breakup.... looking for classic Marshall sound. My Marshall is a 50-watter, used with a Hotplate and Strats, Firebirds, hardly any pedal (just an OD or Treble Booster sometimes..)
