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 - KT88, Genalex Gold Lion
KT88 power tube reissue of Genalex Gold Lion. Made in Russia.
In 1957 Marconi-Osram Valve Co. (Genalex) introduced the "King of Power Tubes", the legendary Gold Lion KT88. This tube became the heart and soul of such classics as the Dynaco Mark III, McIntosh MC275, and Marshall Major. Unfortunately, Genalex ceased tube production in the early 1980s and the Genalex Gold Lion KT88 has become very expensive and hard to find.
After extensive research and engineering, New Sensor Corp. has reissued the famed Genalex Gold Lion KT88.

Vacuum Tube - 6L6GCM-STR, Redbase, Tube Amp Doctor
The TAD 6L6GCM-STR REDBASE is Tube Amp Doctor's latest 6L6GC; designed and built to be the best 6L6 type tube ever manufactured. A high claim, but Tube Amp Doctor is sure that they have achieved exactly that. In terms of sound, the TAD 6L6GCM-STR REDBASE produces the powerful but always defined bass response known from the legendary american built NOS RCA 6L6GC, with clear, unobtrusive and yet transparent highs.

Vacuum Tube - 1U4, Pentode
Miniature, filamentary, sharp-cutoff pentode intended for radio frequency or intermediate frequency amplifier use in battery-operated receivers.
Vacuum Tube - 6BC8 / 6BZ8, Dual Triode
Miniature, medium-mu, semi-remote cutoff twin triode intended for application as a VHF cascode amplifier in a television receiver.
Vacuum Tube - 6CB6A / 6CF6, Pentode, Sharp Cut-Off
Miniature pentode designed for use as a radio-frequency or intermediate-frequency amplifier in television receivers. Features of the tube include high transconductance and low interelectrode capacitances.
Vacuum Tube - ECC823, JJ Electronics, Dual Triode
In the ECC823, Section 1 of the tube (pins 6, 7, and 8) is the low gain 12AU7/ECC82 spec (gain factor 17) and Section 2 (pins 1, 2, and 3) is the high gain 12AX7/ECC83 spec (gain factor 100).
Vacuum Tube - 6AC10, Triple Triode
Compactron containing three high-mu triodes. It is designed for use primarily as a color-difference amplifier in color television receivers.
Vacuum Tube - 6BX6 / EF80, Pentode
Pentode for use as RF, IF, or video amplifying valve or mixing valve in television receivers.
Vacuum Tube - 12SL7GT, Triode, Dual, HI-MU
High-mu twin triode designed for use in resistance-coupled circuits as a voltage amplifier or phase inverter. Except for heater characteristics and ratings, the 12SL7GT is identical to the 6SL7GT.
Vacuum Tube - 1R5 / DK91, Heptode
Miniature pentagrid-converter designed for use as a combined mixer and oscillator in superheterodyne circuits. Because of its small size and high operating efficiency, the 1R5 is especially adapted for compact, battery-operated equipment.
Vacuum Tube - 6C8G, Dual Triode
General purpose twin triode having two independent units, with all electrodes brought out to separate terminals.
Vacuum Tube - 12SQ7, Diode, Dual, Triode
Combines two diode units and a high-mu triode in a single envelope. Each section uses a common cathode. It is intended for service as a combined detector, AVC source, and high gain audio amplifier.
Vacuum Tube - 35Z5GT, Rectifier, Half Wave
Heater-cathode type diode designed for use as a half-wave rectifier in ac/dc receivers. A heater tap is provided to permit operation with a panel lamp.
Vacuum Tube - 13DE7, Triode, Dissimilar Double
Miniature double triode in the 9-pin miniature construction. Section #1 is intended for use as a vertical deflection oscillator having medium mu and section #2 is intended for use as a vertical deflection amplifier with lo mu.
Vacuum Tube - 12X4, Rectifier, Full Wave
Heater-cathode type power rectifier in the miniature construction. Its low voltage drop and small size adapt it to use with vibrator-type inverters in automobile receivers.
Vacuum Tube - 6146B / 8298A, Beam Power Amplifier
Tube having high efficiency and high power sensitivity for use in mobile and stationary equipment. It is rated as an af power amplifier and modulator, a linear rf power amplifier, and a Class C rf power amplifier and oscillator.
Vacuum Tube - 6BN8, Dual Diode, Triode
Miniature, high mu triode, double diode intended for application in color and monochrome television receivers. Separate cathode connections for each section and controlled heater warm-up time to insure dependable operation in series string receivers
Vacuum Tube - 6E5, Indicator, Tubular Glass
High-vacuum, heater-cathode type of tube designed to indicate visually the effect of change in the controlling voltage. Essentially a voltage indicator and as such is particularly useful to facilitate exact tuning of a radio receiver.
Vacuum Tube - 6GH8A, Triode, Pentode
Miniature tube which contains a sharp-cutoff pentode and a medium-mu triode. Each section has a separate cathode and is electrically independent.
Vacuum Tube - EL84 / N709, Genalex Gold Lion
Super Premium power pentode, highest quality in current production. Perfect for Vox AC30, from soft overdrive and organic sustain to great harmonic crunch. Used in many vintage HiFi applications.
  • Unique single halo type getter & plate coating
  • N709/6BQ5 equivalent
Starting at $26.45
Vacuum Tube - 6550, Electro-Harmonix
Superior high-power Octal Beam Tetrode, suitable for any amp using 6550 or KT88. Designed to hold up in even the most punishing environment of high powered bass amps, such as Ampeg SVT. With 42 watts of plate dissipation in tetrode operation and 44 watts in triode, power is improved even over desirable vintage types.
