EL84 vs EL34 vs 6L6GC - Tube Comparison (H&K - Marshall - ENGL)

Easy tube comparison between Hughes&Kettner TubeMeister 36 (EL84) - Marshall DSL 20 (EL34) and ENGL Powerball II (6L6GC).

Different amps with different tubes, all in flat EQ, recorded with Shure SM57 + Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 + MacBook Pro (Logic Pro X). No post EQ.
Guitar used Ibanez RG 2550z-wpm Prestige (DiMarzio Tone Zone + Air Norton).

The sound changes with the gain, if you tweak the three amps they are really really really nice. It's not a "skill" video :)
