Electro-Harmonix
Electro-Harmonix is a New York based company that has gained notoriety through guitar effect pedals. Started in 1968 by an audio technician and an ex-employee of IBM Mike Matthews, who is also a Rhytm & Blues pianist. In the nineties, Electro-Harmonix was taken over by the New Sensor company, which is also located in New York. New Sensor has its own tube plant in Saratov Russia where it has its tubes made under strict supervision from the EH USA.

Besides the Electro-Harmonix 6V6GT we also sell a premium Genalex Gold Lion 6V6GT / CV511, a Tung-Sol 6V6GT and the 6V6GT from TAD
