The 12AX7 Tungsol has high gain, ultralow microphonics and superb linearity. The sound of this tube is full and musical.

  • Tungsol 12ax7 Tubes

    As reviewed by Cliff Hughes on 2/26/2011

    I replaced the stock Fender tubes in my Fender Super Champ XD amp with this tube, and I was impressed. I had experimented at first with Ruby power tubes with it. Then I tried some JJ power tubes with the JJ preamp tube. I came back to the Tungsol 12ax7. To my ear I liked the tone better. I had also put an Eminence Rajin Cajun 10" speaker in which blew away the stock Fender speaker. I aslo had much more volume! So for now it's JJ 6v6 matched power tubes, Tungsol 12ax7 Preamp tube, and Eminence Ragin Cajun 10" speaker. I get a great big sound now, and my bandmates love the sound also. I bought a set for my Fender Twin Reverb also.

  • Excellent Product

    As reviewed by GEOFFREY BRANTNER on 4/2/2012

    Replaced the original tubes in my VHT Special 6 Ultra with two of these. The amp in now less noisy, and maybe sounds a bit warmer. On another note, I did not like the way they were packaged by the GC staff. They were put in the bottom of a small box, and then enough shipping paper to wrap them in was simply squished in on top of them. They could have easily taken the extra 5-seconds to wrap the tubes in the paper, but thankfully they arrived intact. I sent the GC customer service address an email about the packaging and have received no reply.

  • 1 of the 3 best new production 12AX7

    As reviewed by robert on 12/22/2009

    I have a few of these and im using them in my various amps. These reissue Tung-sol tubes from New sensor are easily, IMHO, one of he 3 best new production preamp tubes being made. For years I have used original U.S.A made Tung sol tubes and these are genuinely close enough that i use them inter-changeably. This has the sound of the american 12AX7: powerful, fully equal output-range of lows mids and highs, and great OD distortion, just slightly looser than Brittish Mullards or German Telefunken. BTW The other 2 excellent new prodcution tubes are the JJ ECC803 long plate, and the Mullard 12AX7 reissue. The Mullard sounds awsome but is a bit fragile, can become microphonic with a lot or rough handling.
