EL34 tubes that have an enlarged shape, are called fat boys. They are highly sought after for their fatter tone

Here's what they say about those EL-34's in the article...and we're back to the typical Kool-Aid adjectives a player wants to hear to break loose some heavy $$$ on them...Obviously they choose the 'best' electrons to make this tube sound good...
"... This tube is known for excellent performance, incredible bottom end, rich liquid midrange, outstanding highs. Described as a phenomenal sounding EL34, one of the most rugged Big-Bottle EL34's ever made, recommended, clean, and powerful.  These fat boys have a super polished and quite refined top end. A Major improvement over other 6CA7's.  Get rid of those Chinese or Russian 6CA7's and UPGRADE to GE USA - which are Superior by far to Svetlana or Sovtek 6CA7

So they are a nice tube but they are only fat in shape, and cost more because they look better? At least I think that's what he said. Clean and powerful isn't 'fatter'. Is it?

Anyway, they can be whatever he says they are, and they will sell for whatever the going price may be. :lol:
