NOS Ip Matched Quad (4) Soviet Era Military Spec 6P14P-EV = 7189 6BQ5 EL84 E84L Vacuum Tubes

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.
These are a great deal, they're much cheaper the most New Production EL84s and they were made in Reflector plant in Russia which was bought by New Sensor / Electro-Harmonix / Sovtek. Sovteks are made in the same plant. 
These are genuine NOS tubes but they come white-boxes because they were original bulk-packed for the Soviet military. The photo is a stock photo and your tubes may have different date codes or logos but will otherwise be the same. Matched within 5 Ma. 
Why pay for the name? These are the same quality as new production tubes but with  a vintage flavor.
Testing & Matching

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).

    These are a good replacement for HH Scott 7189 based amps. Great customer service, Viva Tubes stands by their products.

    Just got a quad of these for my Vox AC30C2 and it really woke it up! Great harmonics, great tone overall! These are very fairly priced and offers the superior tone of tubes from yesteryear.

    Excellent value. Handle higher plate voltages of Scotts and Fishers that came with 7189s originally. Easy to bias/match. Give 4 stars only because it's unfortunate without a trendy name some clients hesitate - until they hear them
