The newly developed tube combines the best features of the famous EL84-CZ and EL84-M. It surpasses the tonal quality of the EL84-CZ and provides maximum reliability via the gold grid wire. Uncompromising!

TAD (Tube Amp Doctor) markets these tubes with the TAD EL84 CZ as a reference point. It was supposedly designed to "meet and exceed the tonal quality of the EL84-CZ." That wording was replicated on the Thomann website.
Although this is no fault of Thomann's, this marketing ploy is a major mistake!
Don't get me wrong, the tubes are good tubes, but by associating them with the CZ tubes and claiming they are superior to the CZ tubes, expectations are created about the tubes at least having the bass and volume of the CZ tubes. This is not the case at all.
I did not find them to be that different from the stock Mesa Boogie tubes already in my Mini-Rectifier (driving a 10-inch speaker). Like the Mesa Boogie tubes, the STR tubes are good tubes. It's just that I was looking for something with stronger bass response and higher output that would allow me to stay clean at higher volumes. Unfortunately, opening the package and trying them out renders them used and I can't return them.
Old school soviet quality, new age design and reliability. What more do you need?
This is definitely an impressive purchase and a great addition to any mid frequency based amplifier, with a darker tone, and in this list I'm including anything that is manufactured by Orange.
I bought a pair of these to fit into my new Dark Terror, and honestly, it killed all the fizz and annoying hiss that would occur at higher gain levels, and these frequencies are now filled with a strong and organic sound of highs and trebles. They are also quite more dynamic now, showing a greater change in tone quality as the volume knob is turned.
This in a sweet way introduces more mellow tones in the mid-gain range of the amplifier, further enhancing its ability for kicking butt in blues, blues-rock and some jazz even. If you're looking for high twang and a quacky sound, the tubes definitely won't fit your bill - but if it's smoothness with retained clarity and presence what you're after, then don't miss out on this brilliant product!
One more thing I'd like to mention - sticking an Ibanez Tube Screamer into the chain tends to make a difference only with the right set of tubes. When it comes to the Dark Terror, I really can't think of better tubes for, be it lead or rhythm, or simple richness of sound you're after.
