I was shopping for some new sparepart tubes for my amp and found out that there is some different tubes out there.
I have not cared about this before but now I started to think about it.
There is the usual EL34 and then there is EL34G, EL34WXT, EL34EH ect
What is the difference between these tubes and other letter variations?
What I have heard is that the G stands for graphite.
Does this mean that the EL34G has graphite plates?
And does they have different performance like the 6L6 types?
Tubes 4 ever

To the best of my knowledge no EL34M (metal version) ever existed so I suppose you can just as well ignore it.
The USSR (probably Reklector) EL34WXT should be a ruggedized EL34 with extended life (aka long life version) similar to the NOS E34L professional standard.
EL34EH, the EH is just a vendor's suffix and stands for Electro Harmonix.
EH sometimes has some types especially made for them according to a NOS manufacturers' specs.
This is kind of sound tuning is always popular among guitar players.
