Will this work with my Marshall AVT 150H?
Asked by Anonymous on October 7th, 2016.
Yes, this tube is comparable will all other 12AX7's and their variants.
These are not tubes designed for Guitar Amps, unless you were looking for the worst guitar sound possible. These are designed for audiophiles, not distorted guitar amps. Designed to NOT distort
Yes, this would be an awesome tube for a Marshall amp. It is about the highest gain 12AX7 you can find, and the higher the gain, the more distortion a high gain guitar amp will produce. High end audio equipment is designed not to produce any distortion, but to produce the cleanest and most high fidelity sound from the original signal source as possible. Guitar amps, on the other hand, are designed to introduce distortion ("clipping") into the circuit as the preamp volume is turned up. Blues players like to have the sound just on the "edge of breakup", so when they "dig in" and hit a string hard, the sound growls and barks, but when they pick softer, it sound clean. For this to happen, they need a tube with a good amount of gain, and the more gain a tube has, the lower the volume will be when it hits that "edge of breakup" point. For rock and metal players, they want a bit more distortion, so they prefer higher gain tubes which allow their amps to provide the amount of distortion they want throughout most of it's volume levels. If you're playing rock or metal, this would be an excellent tube to try out to get that high gain distortion that you're seeking.
Would this be a good swap for the stock 12Ax7 in my Bugera V5 infinium. Im also looking for a great power tube replacement.

This is a very high gain preamp tube and if that is what you are going for then this is an excellent choice.
Hello, is this a good choice to put in my Orange tiny bass amp?

If your amp calls for a 12AX7 and you are looking for a tube with a lot of gain then this would be an excellent choice. Check out our 12AX7 comparisons here: https://www.tubesandmore.com/tech-corner/12ax7-comparison-current-made-tubes
What tubes would you suggest for a fender blues deluxe?

Tube choices are highly subjective and have many variables (What type of guitar being used, the genre of music, your personal playing habits, etc) so we encourage you to check out our comparisons of 12AX7s and 6L6 tubes. https://www.amplifiedparts.com/tech-corner/12ax7-comparison-current-made-tubes https://www.amplifiedparts.com/tech-corner/6l6gc-comparison-current-made-tubes
I would like to use this tube in my Orange Micro Dark and in my Fender Champ 600. Is this a good choice for that application?

Since both of your amps call for a 12AX7, it will certainly work. If you are looking for a tube that can produce a lot of gain then this would be an excellent choice. Check out our 12AX7 comparisons here: https://www.tubesandmore.com/tech-corner/12ax7-comparison-current-made-tubes
