The Ashdown Peacemaker 60 amplifier uses 3 x ECC83 (also called 12AX7) preamp valves, 1 x Balanced ECC83 for the V4 position and 2 x EL34 matched power valves/power tubes.
Both the head and combo use the same valve set.
A brand new set of valves will get your amp sounding better than ever.
We always recommend JJ valves for this amplifier. This is because they guarantee you get awesome tone and long life and they don’t cost a fortune. Remember, JJ is one of only five manufacturers of valves in the world. So don’t pay higher prices for valves from the same factory that have simply been rebranded by other companies.
Order your valves below and hear the difference.
So restore the tone, the power and the sparkle to your guitar amplifier. Treat yourself to a brand new set of valves today.

Most Class A amps only have a single power valve and so, of course, you don’t normally need a balanced ECC83 in the ‘phase splitter’ position. However, the Peacemaker 60 has two power valves.
So although the last preamp valve isn’t acting as a phase splitter (that is for a class AB amps) the two halves of that valve each drive one output valve and so it IS advantageous to have both halves of the phase splitter valve matched in gain. That’s why we include it in this kit.
