JJ Electronic Now Producing 6550, 6CA7, and EL844 Tubes

The new tubes are additions to the Slovak Republic-produced line of JJ tubes

Tempe, AZ (November 22, 2010) -- CE Distribution, the primary distributor of JJ Electronic vacuum tubes, is pleased to announce the release of three new JJ tube types. JJ Electronic has been producing premium vacuum tubes in the Slovak Republic for over 16 years.

The three new tubes are all very welcome additions to the JJ line: the 6550, 6CA7 and EL844. The JJ 6550 is musical in every sense of the word and will improve the sound of your high powered bass and guitar amps with punch and clarity. The 6CA7 is a large bottle version of the classic EL34 that gives a bigger and warmer sound than any EL34 in the market today. It is a substitute for all amps that use EL34s. The last addition to the line has been designed by JJ from scratch, an EL844. A substitute for any EL84, the EL844 has lower gain and a more balanced, dynamic sound.

Most guitarists learn the basic scales, patterns, and lines up and down the neck when starting to visualize the fretboard. Working open strings into the mix made my head spin and forced me think of note selection differently. It taught me how to manipulate lines that I’d played for years and breathed new life into those lines simply by adding one key element.
