I just picked up a Bugera V22 & would like to know if I can swap the El84 for El34? I think I know why I'd want to but if you could all confirm my assumptions, I'd appreciate it.


No, you can only use EL84 tubes in it. Changing the brand of EL84 can have a impact on tone but typically swapping the preamp tubes will have a bigger effect on the sound

Besides EL84 and EL34 are not even the same size base.
