Tested on commercial tester and one 12ax7 Tung-Sol was weak and one tested good.
Both still worked in amp just one weaker than the other.

My go-to 12AX7 new production tube for all of my builds, upgrades and repairs. V1, no problem, and the tone, in my opinion is excellent. A long-lived tube as well. Have seen them in the PI spot in some very exclusive amps, but I prefer the Sovtek 12AX7LPS (or the new Mullard).

This tube is awesome in my Marshall TSL602 in the V1 position. Does every channel very well. While it doesn't clean up as much on the clean channel as the Mullard reissue I've used in the past it does have a natural crunch to it. I was able to back off the preamp levels on all channels and get great tone, which is not easy on a TSL. JJ's and China tubes sound ok but the Tung-Sol reissues are great, I just hope they last longer than the Mullard reissues. I got less than a year out of the Mullard, hopefully that's just a fluke.

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!
