Watford Valves has cryogenically treated some of the more popular and best sounding JJ electronic formally known as Tesla valves. This process makes a permanent change and the benefits do not deteriorate over time or upon return to operating temperature, it changes the whole way the vacuum tube performs. The biggest benefits I have found have been a dramatic improvement in dynamic range. Bass response has been clearer with reduction in microphonics. The soundstage is bigger with more detail with a big reduction in the noise floor. The really most starling fact has been how the valve operates under saturated and overdriven conditions in guitar amplifiers. The distortion is smoother with less hardness and is musically pleasing to the ear.
The JJ-Tesla EL84 Cryo is the best sounding version of JJ EL84 valve available today.

The Cryo treatment enhances the overall performance of this valve by providing deeper more controlled bass with added depth and weight. It provides extended clarity in the high end and upper midrange. It also fattens up the midrange response and removes the upper end brittleness that is associated with this JJ valve. The extended clarity in the high end and upper midrange is an excellent addition in clean playing situations.

In clean playing applications the valve has more clear high end response with and tighter crisper midband. The bass response is also deeper, tighter and more controlled.

In overdriven mode the JJ EL84 is very easy to overdrive providing a warm and natural distortion overdrive with a little compression. The Cryo treatment enhances the EL84 valves overload characteristic which results in a harmonically rich lead guitar sound which is fatter and tighter with
a great singing natural sustain when the valve is pushed into distortion.

These features are simply not available in the standard untreated JJ EL84.

The JJ EL84 Cryo offers the audio user as well as the guitarist the ultimate performance.
The cryogenic treatment is proven scientific process that permanently enhances the valves performance. Under treatment the molecules will align in a more uniform, compact structure through the removal of kinetic energy. When the material is returned to ambient temperature, this new uniform, compact pattern is maintained, Thus changing the structure of the nickel permanently. This process makes a permanent change and the benefits do not deteriorate over time or upon return to operating temperature, it changes the whole way the vacuum tube performs.

The sound quality of the Cryo treated JJ is comparable with rare new old stock valves which come with a much higher price tag.

The JJ EL84 in Cryo version is simply the best sounding version of the JJ EL84 available today and that is a scientific fact.

The JJ EL84 Cryo is available in matched pairs and quads only
