So, im wondering which tube is the best...EL84 or EL34??
Tell me advantages and disadvantages about the both tubes.
Personaly I think that the 34 looks cooler :P

For starters...research each type of tube you want to use. Then bounce that off of the sound that you want. it should be pretty easy to decide at that point.

If you're thinking like that, you shouldn't be allowed near valves.

They're different. Neither is "better."

They're both somewhat mids based. EL84 has less wattage output...

This is a really vague question.

Ok then, well it completely depends upon the amp, you shouldn't really be choosing an amp depending on what valves it uses...
