  1. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hey guys! I love my 5150 III 50W EL34 but I'm aware that there's some controversy regarding the blue channel. I personally dig the blue channel as it reminds me of an amp like a Soldano or a little bit of Recto. Fuzzy and loose and not as tight as the 6L6 blue channel. I haven't played a 6L6...

    Week or so old but here it goes anyway, since Iron was expecting EVH Amps news :) EVH has announced new two amplifiers, the British-voiced 5150III 50W EL34 1x12 Combo and EVH 5150III 50W EL34 2x12 Combo. The 50-watt tube combo amps boast independent dual-concentric controls and three...

    Damn, I was going for the perm ban!

    A few weeks late on posting it but I finally got around to playing on it a bit this week. No big surprise that I like this one more than the 6L6 version. Have always been more of a Marshall type of guy. The other is still awesome but this one has a bit more character, I guess. Channel 1 is...

    What can I expect with the EL34 version over the regular version? It'd be the 50 watt version. Admittedly I'm not well versed on what a certain type of tube does vs. another. I've always just turned an amp on and either liked it or not. The regular 5150III 50w is pretty much perfect for my needs...

    Time to revalve my poweramp section (I say time... It's been time for about 18 months, I've just been lazy as shit. How I haven't had one fail on me live, I do not know :lol: ) I know the inherent differences between EL34 and 6L6 valves, so I'm specifically asking Rectifier users, and your...

    Don't know if this has been posted before, but here it is finally. An EL34 version of the regular 5150 III Stealth with MORE saturation and compression :rofl: Seems to be exactly the same amp with an EL34 preamp section as it was rumoured. I'm curious to see if the sound changes much as I...

    I bought a set of these for my Nomad (to replace 6CA7's) while shopping for JJ E34L's, and decided to toss them into the Stiletto to get a good comparison between the TungSol EL34B's that were in there. Comparatively, I actually found them to be stunningly similar. As in, it just felt the...

    The manual for my Randall RM100 says the range for EL34's is 30mV to 38 mV. It's subtly implied that I shouldn't run them lower than 30mV. The tubes came matched at 25.1mV so I'm just trying to pop them in and check it'll work before I track down a multimeter so I can bias them Thanks all

    Like a wrote in my introduction i'm currently re-introduce myself with my guitar gear. So i searched for something to practice with a small amp or 19" preamp with headphone-input will do the trick. The 19" seems more versatile to me so i shortlisted 2 items: Engl 530, Headphone, modern...

    I decided to replace the 6L6's in my power amp, because I've been migrating all my patches to my EL34 channel. So, I went with a pair of KT77's from Eurotubes. They are supposed to be sort of in between the two… So far, the description is pretty accurate. In words that don't mean...

    Like most of the metal guys here I have more experience with 6l6 amps than El34 amps, although there are a few guys here from the JCM 800 Glory Days I suspect its the same for most of us. Anyways, what I'm finding is that my current EL34 amp (Rivera K-Tre) is that there seems to be a bit of a...

    If I'm not mistaken, KT77's are a straight swap in for EL34's? Can anyone enlighten me on the pro's and con's of both. If I gotta replace my poweramp valves, why not see what choice I have :lol:

    My friend is looking to get an amp head to replace this unit which he currently runs with the old school pod rackmount (the first one!) I reckon he could probably sell it for about £850 and he is thinking of doing so but between us we have very little knowledge about the demand for these things...

    Anyone try these? I'm on the hunt for some sexy tubes for the Roadster, just for the sake of trying different things with it. Winged "C" (SED) EL34
