Vacuum Tubes

The first electronic amplification of sound was done with Vacuum Tubes. We have pre-amp, power and rectifier vacuum tubes among other types in New Old Stock from the golden era of American & European manufacturing as well as current production tubes from today.
Vacuum Tube - 12AX7S, JJ Electronics, Mid Gain
A new take on the classic 12AX7 preamp tube.

This tube offers low noise and low microphonics.
