NOS Ip Matched Pair Soviet Military 6P14P-EV = 7189 6BQ5 EL84 E84L Vacuum Tubes
- Calculated at Checkout
These are Soviet era 6P14P-EV vacuum tubes. The 6P14P-EV is a direct equivalent to the 7189. The 7189 is a 6BQ5 or EL84 that can handle higher plate voltages and produces a few more watts. These will work great in any circuit that calls for 7189, 6BQ5 or El84. These are the special EV version which means they were produced at extremely high standards for the Soviet military and are the best version you can get.
Double-tested & matched for Gm, Ip (Plate Current), Shorts, Leaks, Gas on a Triplett 3444, Space-Tech Easy Tube Tester or Maxi-Matcher. All of these testers bring tubes up to their full operating voltage and also check for plate current (Ip) as well as General Mutual Transconductance (Gm).
Vintage & NOS
These tubes really smooth out the tone of the Vox AC10C1. My first set of replacements, Tung-Sol’s, sounded great too, however they didn’t hold up and started to rattle after a few months. Hoping the more rugged Soviet era tubes will hold up better to the abuse that the AC10C1 cabinet puts on tubes.
