Early Distortion

The Vox Harma Retro RFT Early Distortion full upgrade kit is designed to give you an instant upgrade over the standard Chinese valves by improving a number of important characteristics.

This is done by using modern day production valve that are traditionally voiced to sound as close to the originals in combination with an ECC82 specially chosen for its distortion characteristics. It is designed to give you the classic Vox sound with earlier distortion.

The Harma ECC83 Retro provides a harmonically rich and detailed sound with clear 3D midrange warmth. It has a very open and clear top end chime giving that gives the amplifier that rich sustaining tone. The outstanding feature is a smooth linear midrange response and extended frequency response. So you get smooth warm overdrive with tight fat punchy lows and that classic Mullard style bottom end.

In the output stage

The ECC82 we use is a new old stock RFT that was made in Germany and was also used by Siemens and Telefunken. The reason we have chosen this valves is for its distortion and overdrive characteristics in these amps. These valves simply sound superb as they produce a punchy aggressive tone with a crunchy edge when overdriven. This valve has outperformed other more expensive new old Stock ECC82.

Single line guitar Solos cut through the mix with plenty of definition. What I really like about the RFT valve is that it is very thick sounding when playing chords, It adds a nice fatness if you are using a Stratocaster or a Tele but is really thick when using a guitar with humbuckers such as a Gibson Les Paul.

The valves distorted characteristics perfectly complement the warmth of the Harma Retro in pre amp and captures that vintage crunchy sound that we all love.

This is the ideal kit for any player who wants that Classic Vox sound with earlier distortion
