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.

No Warning About Cathode Follower/Phase Inverter Use

I purchased three of these when I was looking to re-tube my Peavey. The item's description does not state that these can not be used in a Cathode Follower or a Phase Inverter position....Read complete review

I purchased three of these when I was looking to re-tube my Peavey. The item's description does not state that these can not be used in a Cathode Follower or a Phase Inverter position. Fortunately, I found out about it before replacing the tubes. I contacted "Otto" through Tung-Sol's website who confirmed that these can not be used in those positions. It would have been nice to have that information clearly available before I purchased 3 of them. So, after purchasing a Sovtek 12AX7WB to use in the Phase Inverter and tube rolling from other amps, I was able to spread the Tung-Sol's around. To be quite honest, I find the tone change negligible. I've rolled the Tung-Sol's, JJ's and Ruby 7025SS's through a variety of positions on a variety of amps and can't hear enough of a difference to say that they are wonderful or bad.

    Comments about Tung-Sol 12AX7 Tube:

    Put this in an Orange micro dark, and immediately noticed the difference from the stock tube. Gave an already feisty little amp some more growl. Definitely worth the money, and an easy swap for a marked difference in tone.

      I originally upgraded my preamp tubes with the mesa boogie tube, and it was just so shrill sounding. Stopped at guitar center one night and picked this up and it sounds so full and rich. great tonal balance

                I installed these in a Hughes & Kettner Tubemeister 18. The original tubes were a little bit too clean sounding. The amp has much more overdrive now and it's a smooth overdrive, not nasty high end screech like some other preamp tubes. I have some vintage NOS RCA tubes on order but these work well.

                    My 65 reissue Super reverb had begone to hiss and was very distracing had to not use the amp untill the preasmp tubes were replaced. This is the first replacement tubes that I have bought for this amp which I bought in 2003 new.

                    Better than JJ's

                    Comments about Tung-Sol 12AX7 Tube:

                    I have a Marshall JCM 2000 TSL 100. I was looking to replace by preamp tubes. I have looked around and one of the sites for tubes said to use Tung sol with C Wing powertubes. I gave it a shot and purchase 4 Tung Sol tubes. I soon as I played I notice a big diference in my sound. more like the brown sound that a Marshall is know for. I would recommend this product to everyone. A step up from JJ tubes and you can take that to the bank!!!

                    When considering the small price of admission, these are the very best IMO. If money were no object, I would still use these preamp tubes.
