The Harma ECC83 STR Philips 6L6WGB full upgrade kit is designed to get the best out of this superb amp. This has that crunchy harmonic kick and punch that is not equalled by another 6L6 type.

The Harma ECC83 STR is used to maintain the amps sparkling clean sounds. The mid-range is clean and transparent which removes the mush from the sound when the amplifier is overdriven. The valve responds very well to pedals and crunches up with a fat well balanced tone.

The Philips 6L6WGB are the original small bottle American Military JAN 6L6WGB/5881 that was made for the USA Military in the mid-1980's These are Full Jan Specification which means that they are long life and superbly made with the highest grade materials. No modern day 6L6GC valve is made to this specification.

No other valves give this amp that punchy harmonic kick to the sound. The valve has that tight midrange attack that provides that rich midrange twang. The top end is open and clear with a nice crunchy chime. Solo's and riffs are fat with a rich, warm harmonic sustain.Power chords are perfect with enough crunch to add impact to the music with plenty of top string detail. Picking chord and runs simply jumped out of the speakers.

The Philips 6L6WGB does not get muddy and fizzy under extreme saturation or when heavily boost. Hit a clean boost in the front end for vintage Clapton biting solos with all the clarity that only the Philips provides.

2 Specially Selected Harma ECC83 STR in V1 & V3
