‘Not sure if I can get better tubes than what I spent on these’

Comments from Simon N. in Ontario:

I have a GrantFidelity A-534 with a set of Telsa EL34′s NOS, they’re good to me compared to the stock GF (Shuguang generic clear glass) tubes, and initial thought on the black bottles, they weren’t as open and quite rough sounding compared to the Telsa’s. Burned them in more hours but still not too impress, then I left the amp on over night for good couple of weeks to burn them in. Now they sing!!! Sounds very live with these new tubes and very smooth sounding.

They also look nicer than the Telsa with the black coating on the glass. I’m not sure if I can get better tubes for what I spent on these, but they worth every penny to me!

‘they sound better than the best Mullards I have’

- from customer Richard J.

“Dear Rachel, First I would like to say Thank You for sending the Shuguang Anniversary EL 34 Black bottle tubes. Amazingly they sounded better than the best Mullards I currently have on hand right out of the box. I have never had a tube sound so good with no break in time, and I have been using tubes since 1963. Thease are trurly an amazing accomplishment. ”
