The valves that we stock under the Svetlana winged C are the original items made by the JSC Svetlana Company that owns and operates the Svetlana factory in St. Petersburg, Russia. This factory has a long history of making valves and transmitting valves .In fact have been making vacuum tubes for over 100 years. These valves have constantly topped not only our own valve reviews but also in audio and guitar reviews the world over. They offer some of the best sounding types available today.

Watford valves has cryogenically treated some of the more popular and best sounding Original Svetlana / winged C valves. This process makes a permanent change to the valves performance 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 huge improvement in audio performance. The soundstage is bigger with more detail with a big reduction in the noise floor. The most dramatic improvement 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 Svetlana EL34 has become standard equipment in Marshall Amplifiers for many years now. The design is based on the famous Mullard EL34. The constructions see a laminated alloy used for the plate construction which helps heat transfer under overload conditions.
These are the ORIGINAL Svetlana EL34 as made by JSC Svetlana and are also known by the name of Winged C.

The valve has a smooth top end response and a rich distorted tone. The Svetlana EL34 has a bold and dynamic sound and when overdriven sounds smooth and responsive. The Svetlana EL34 is also one of the best sounding audio EL34 that we have come across.
We burn in and dual match these on anode current and transconductance/output gain. All this and bullet proof reliability makes these a great buy.

Here is an email from pro guitarist Giles Palmer after installing the Cryo Svetlana El34
"Hi Derek
Just a quick thank you for selecting a superb pair of valves (cryo winged c svet el34) for my old Marshall combo.
They sound about 300 times better than a pair of groove tubes I tried a couple of weeks ago, Unbelievable difference.
Best
Giles "
