Just a wee reminder to put this date in your diary. A great Shadows style band raising money for the RNLI. BTW if you play shadows music with a Vox AC15 or AC30 then the Sovtek EL84M gives much more clean headroom and so more watts at big gigs It has much longer life and is ruggedised too !! The robust construction makes this EL84M 40% heavier than a bog standard EL84 https://valvetubeguitaramps.com/wannabe-shadows/
