Black Star amplifiers have quite rightly caused a major buzz in the music industry since their launch. By upgrading the valves to selected cryogenically treated valve sets customers have noticed the additional benefits such as better clarity, larger and improved sound stage with increased definition under distortion.

This Classic EL34 Cryo upgrade kit covers the Black Star Series One 104 Head equipped with EL34 and is designed to provide the ideal combination for those who demand a tight driving rock sound with plenty of rich sustain. This combination designed to give you the classic British sound with more top end bite

The Cryo treatment gives a permanent change to the valves performance. The additional benefits such as better clarity, larger and improved sound stage with increased definition under distortion are what the treated valves provide and ensure a lasting improvement to you sound over the untreated items.

The Harma ECC83 Retro Cryo provides a harmonically rich and detailed sound with excellent 3D midrange warmth. This valve has a traditional British voiced sound that has a huge singing sustaining tone when overdriven. The outstanding feature of this valve is its smooth linear midrange response and extended frequency response so you get smooth warm overdrive with tight fat punchy lows.

The Philips Jan Military ECC82-5814A Cryo has a number of unique features such as high grade filament isolation so even after long periods of use the filament will not degrade. The 5814A were designed to be immune to shock and vibration as they were designed for military aircraft and they were also rated for long life. To put it simply, no modern day ECC82 is made to this specification and no modern day ECC82 sounds like it. The Philips overdrives very evenly and does not fall apart when you saturate the amplifier. The 5814A improves the amplifier as it losses the grainy unmusical fuzz that is displayed by many modern ECC82 in the black star. This valve has outperformed many more expensive ECC82 and therefore we have used it in this kit.

The Harma EL34 Retro Cryo is modelled on the famous Mullard EL34 XF2 provides a similar bass and midrange sound the Svetlana Winged C EL34 in clean mode. In overdriven mode the Harma has a more forward sound in the mid and top and will break up earlier than the Svetlana. The main difference and feature of the Harma EL34 Retro is that the treble response is more aggressive. This gives the amp a punchier in your face British sound that some customers prefer and is ideal for Rock and metal giving you a little more edge.

The kit consists of
4 Specially Selected Harma ECC83 Retro Cryo
1 Specially Selected Philips ECC82-5814A Cryo
4 Specially Selected and matched Harma EL34 Retro Cryo

Please note that the kit is for the valves only.
