Svetlana Electron Devices, St. Petersburg: The Svetlana winged C is a major Russian power-tube manufacturer. Formerly a part of the huge Svetlana collective factory. 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.
These are the Original Russian military 6K32N -EF86 which was a factory selected EF86 made for the Russian military by the JSC SVETLANA factory or winged C as it is now known by.

These EF86s are vastly superior to the modern JJ & Electro Harmonix EF86. The Svetlana item was factory selected for low noise and uniform gain and made with an internally rugged sub structure.
All these EF86 have the OTK government stamp of approval marking and have the original winged C logo and markings. They are all mid 1980 production which was supplied to the military and have the distinctive pimple style plate.

There is one very important reason why this valve excels in guitar and microphone application. The design of the Russian EF86 has lower output impedance; the result is 10 % more gain. The valve also has lower internal noise when used in high gain circuits compared to NOS EF86 by Mullard, Philips and Brimar Etc. So what you get is a low noise valve, with more gain. This is why when compared to these more expensive NOS valves the Russian item out performs them. The EF86s are vastly superior to the modern JJ & Electro Harmonix EF86.So if you have an EF86 in you guitar amplifier you will need one of these.

All these EF86 have the OTK government stamp of approval marking and have the original winged C logo. They provide excellent performance with super low microphonics in audio or guitar amplifier applications so are Ideal in Bad Cat, Black star, Matchless, 65 amps and Vox amplifiers
