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 Svetlana EL34 made by JSC Svetlana in the Russian Svetlana plant.
These valves were manufactured in 1998 and have the original S logo with the production date on the valve. They also come in the original Svetlana Box with the winged C emblem on the carton.

These were made before the trademark dispute reared its head and these are classic Svetlana winged C item made at the heyday of its production. These are 100 % original as I bought them at the time and they are from our long term store. The construction of these items use a laminated alloy used for the plate construction which helps heat transfer under overload conditions.

The Svetlana factory is now sadly closed and all of the genuine Svetlana products have reached new old stock status, not because they are old but simply as this is the best sounding EL34 that is available.

New old stock status as it will hold up in sound terms against the best. In all the guitar and audio test reports I have conducted over 25 years this valve is only beaten by the Mullard EL34 and the double gettered original Tesla EL34.

In Audio terms it is clear fast and musical with the correct balance and dynamics. In guitar amps, the Svetlana EL34 has a bold and dynamic sound and when overdriven sounds smooth and responsive.

These 1998 original Svetlana have the S logo as this was the worldwide trademark of the factory back in 1998

We burn in and dual match these on anode current and transconductance output gain.

So if you believe that the earlier production Svetlana's are the best then here is your chance to stock up as once these are gone we cannot supply any more.

Available in dual matched pairs and quads
