“Jackson Newcastle 30 revalve”

Written on: 24/06/2017 by Willissb344 (1 review written)

Got great friendly advice on best replacement tubes for my Jackson Newcastle 30 amp head. Ordered full set of JJ's Tuesday afternoon and got them Wednesday morning before 10am, fantastically rapid service. This is the second time I've used Karltone and won't be the last… Read Full Review

“Can't fault any aspect of transaction”

Written on: 30/01/2016 by Bordonbert (1 review written)

I have used Karltone now twice. The first time was for a pair of 5751 preamp valves and the second for a matched quad of EL84s. The site is a dream to use, simple and concise with everything available and clear, and with pricing the cheapest around that I can find and transparent. Both times the valves have arrived by lunchtime the very next day despite being purchased late in the afternoon. All of the valves worked perfectly just as you would expect, but the matching on the quad EL84s is… Read Full Review

The agent at Karltone is a very helpful guy and knows his stuff. Hes always been able to advise me on what valves to buy and can provide a spot on description of what he thinks the valves sound like. His prices are reasonable and he provides a quick service. … Read Full Review

“new tungsol 6sn7”

Written on: 16/03/2015 by Larkinta1983 (1 review written)

Amp separo p88i, power tube psvane kt88' x2 6sn7 x2 6sl7. From new amp sounded very dull, gave it four weeks to burn in this is at times leaving the amp on all day. Could not take sound of amp any more so purchase tungsol 6sn7. When arrived fitted 6sn7 into amp, out of the box the amp sounded brilliant, the drums sounded real, women's voices not coming out of the speakers but it's like the singer is in front of you. Base and midrange very very good, but the treble sweet sweet. All I can say is… Read Full Review

“2xEL34 Svetlana (C), 3x12ax7: Tung-Sol and Silver Dragon”

Written on: 22/05/2013 by Harry_Blackhole (1 review written)

Awesome shop! Best on-lince store I've seens, very easy to use and purchase things. Lot of data on tubes as well. I live in Poland and wanted a decent shop with reliable stuff, so I chose Karl's and he didn't disappoint me. They send the stuff same day, Tubes came after a week - it depended on GLS service, nothing to do with a shop. They were very well secured for the shipping, with all the measurements data written on the side of each tube's box. Work like a charm! Go for Karl, bros and sis:)… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/12/2012 by Simon_Gladwin (1 review written)

I have bought all my pre-amp valves and power amp valves from Karltone for the last year now....each time the valves have been well packaged and arrived unscathed. Really competitive prices and postage rates with super speedy service. Cant imagine going anywhere else. Would heartily recommend this place! Simon… Read Full Review

“5 star service and communication! Highly recommended!”

Written on: 25/10/2012

Bought an overdrive pedal from Karltone, as their price was the best I could find in any European store. Delivery was extremely speedy (ordered Sunday afternoon, received Tuesday morning) and I got three emails with updates on the status of my order. Pedal arrived well packaged and in perfect condition. Overall a fantastic service. Cannot give them enough praise. Highly recommended… Read Full Review

“Fast, Easy, well priced”

Written on: 09/10/2012

I recently required a matched set of 4 el34's for my marshall. After trying a few different sites, I came across KarlTone. The price was reasonable and the ordering process was very easy. There was a good amount of information about the products and ordering process, and on their in-house tube-matching process . Delivery was quick and the tubes were well-packaged. Very satisfied… Read Full Review

“Superb service, attention to detail, advice, great shop!”

Written on: 08/10/2012 by JasonPresley (1 review written)

I am constantly tweaking my amps to deliver better tones. I buy all my valves from Karl, as he is honest and reliable. I know I can depend on my order arriving swiftly almost always next day, ingenious packaging and meticulous testing mean I have never returned a valve which was damaged in transit or a dud / faulty (only one I accidentally dropped!) Karl really knows his stuff when it comes to his product - his advice is always tailored to the amp you're using and he will help you select the… Read Full Review

“great service”

Written on: 07/10/2012 by donor (1 review written)

bought a Kustom Defender 5H n wanted to tame it gain wise. I ordered el844 from Karltone and queried whether this would do the job. I recieved a phone call from Karl who advised against the el844 (which i decided was the best option as suggested on a couple of amp forums) and he gave a good explanation why these would not noticably change the gain. He researched differen options for me and with his obvious product knowledge put a 2 valve option together for me and contact me with the reasons he… Read Full Review

“Excellent service and customer support”

Recently I accidently ordered EL84 valves instead of EL34's from Karltone. When I called them to explain my mistake,they were very helpful and dispatched the correct ones to me the next day.I only had to cover the differnce in price and the postage. I of course returned the ones incorrectly ordered which were still in original packing. I would certainly recommend Karltone as a supplier.The prices are good and components top quality… Read Full Review
