9 pin miniature preamp tube (Amplification Factor = 100). This Russian tube is full bodied and well balanced. It has a high gain with a very smooth presentation. In overdrive, it is not quite as defined as the 12AX7-S-JJ, but it offers more crunchy fizz. For more information about our 12AX7 tubes, see our tech corner article on 12AX7s.

THE phase inverter tube in my opinion. I stock them. I've used dozens, in new builds, upgrades and repairs. Also can provide a nice warm tone in the V1 spot in a head cab ONLY. Speaker/cabinet/chassis vibrations can harm this long-plate tube, according to some.

These are great and reliable tubes for phono sections of stereo preamps. They have very long life way over 6000 hours. The EH short plate version is quieter but not as warm sounding. Those will last a long time too. Highly recommend the Sovtek 12AX7LPS +++++

I can't attest to this tube's value in any place but the driver stage, but in that position there is no other tube I would even consider. The best.
