I tried some JJ 12AX7s, but I won't call them my favorites. They're good sounding tubes, but don't sound the best for my amps (Bugera 22 and a Trace Elliot SpeedTwin C50). They sound good in my amps, but the sound is probably best described as warm and round. I think that tube selection is like microphone selection: if you have a harsh source, choose a soft mic and vice versa so as to complement the source. So, for my amps (at least to my sound taste) I need pre-amp tubes with a little more bite. I chose Tung Sols.

I purchased these for a customer's Vox AC30 and they sound absolutely wonderful.

I have been using these for a few years now and love the sound, as well as the reliability.

I swapped out the stock Marshall-branded 12ax7s in my Marshall Vintage Modern 2266. Playing around with preamp tubes is like going to a gourmet ice cream shop: lots of different flavors of interesting stuff. I have to say, the stock tubes sounded pretty good compared the the Tung Sols. I did notice that the amp was quieter with the Tung Sols, especially the Hi Dynamic Range setting, which is notoriously hissy in these amps. The Tung Sols were a better upgrade for the stock Marshall tubes in my JCM900 MKIII, but I think they were only a different a different flavor for the Vintage Modern - neither better nor worse. I'd easily buy them again, but I think I may try some of the different brands that are in the same price range, just as a tonal experiment. Rock on!

Needed 4 good solid 12AX7 tubes for a HP restoration. These tubes are priced right and are solid performer. Now these Tungsol Reissue 12AX7s are my go to tubes.

I replaced all of the 12AX7's in my Supersonic with these and the amp sounds great.

I liked these, from the first time I tried them. They are not as high a gain as some of the other 12AX7s, but the tone is nice and so are the noise levels. All the newer 12AX7s kind of suck, compared to some of the great NOS valves, but these are pretty nice. I can't really equate them to a NOS Tung Sol in any way shape or form. That is just Mike Mathews' marketing hype. I suppose these are a little like a CBS Hytron, GE, RCA or some other nondescript 12AX7. Tung Sol 12AX7s were never considered anything special, and I guess these fit that category rather well. Medium gain, lower noise, and decent tone.

I installed this in my Demeter Bass 600 head and noticed an immediate difference! The lows are big and deep without being overly so and all the while retaining a crisp clarity in the highs. If you are looking for clarity with big lows and crisp highs, this tube is the way to go! Highly recommended!
