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 - 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 - 5751, JJ Electronics
A dual triode that can be used in place of most 12AX7 circuits. The rugged build of this tube and reduced gain (30% less than a 12AX7) can improve headroom and give better control in high gain stages allowing users to more easily dial in sweet spots. The JJ 5751 features a smooth and balanced tone and a detailed response with low noise and low microphonics.
Vacuum Tube - 3C24 / 24G, Triode
Medium-mu triode - modulator, oscillator, amplifier.
Vacuum Tube - 6DL4 / EC88, Triode
Triode intende for use as a grounded grid UHF amplifier for bands IV and V.
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.
Starting at $58.50
Vacuum Tube - 6A5G, Triode, Power Amplifier
6A5G is a heater type power amplifier triode designed for the same service as types 6A3 and 6B4G. The tube is equipped with an octal base. This tube is quite free from hum so that no potentiometer is required for hum balance.
Vacuum Tube - 6V6, JJ Electronics
This 6V6 has the standard rugged construction we’ve come to expect from JJ which allows it handle much higher plate voltages than the typical 6V6 tube. The JJ 6V6 can even be used in place of a 6L6 in some amplifiers. Overall this tube has a warm and balanced tone with incredible separation and response. These tubes can cover a spectrum of sounds and styles all within the same amplifier.
Starting at $15.95
Vacuum Tube - 12AX7LPS, Sovtek
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.
On Backorder
Vacuum Tube - 6FM7, Dual Triode, Dissimilar
Compactron dissimilar double triode designed for used as a combined vertical-deflection oscillator and amplifier in television receivers.
Vacuum Tube - 6HU6 / EM87, Indicator, Tuning
New-Old-Stock (NOS) tube. Tuning indicator tube

Vacuum Tube - 5AR4 STR, Tube Amp Doctor
Tube Amp Doctor 5AR4 Rectifier, Premium Selected. A faithful reproduction of the Mullard/VALVO GZ34. Pure power and the typical sag is the distinguishing characteristic of the most popular guitar amps of the 1960s guitar heroes till today.
Vacuum Tube - 75, Dual Diode, Triode, ST Glass
Heater-cathode type duplex-diode high-mu triode designed for use as a combined detector, audio-frequency amplifier and automatic-volume-control tube
Vacuum Tube - 1S5 / DAF91, Diode, Sharp Cut-Off Pentode
Miniature tube containing a diode and a sharp-cutoff pentode. It is designed for use as a combined detector and audio-frequency voltage amplifier in compact battery-powered equipment.
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 - 6V6GT, Mullard Reissue
Mullard 6V6GT tube. Made in Russia. This valve is built to stand the high voltages encountered in the Fender Deluxe Reverb and other guitar amplifiers that ran the valves above the published specification. The smooth and balanced frequency response also makes it suitable for hi-fi use.
Starting at $28.50
Vacuum Tube - 5842 / 417A, Triode
9-pin miniature triode with an indirectly heated cathode. It is intended primarily for grounded grid operation in the input stage of broad band amplifiers.
Vacuum Tube - 6KD8 / 6U8A, Triode, Pentode
Medium mu triode and sharp cutoff pentode in the 9 pin miniature construction. It is intended for use as a combined VHF oscillator and mixer in television receivers.
Vacuum Tube - E83CC Frame Grid, JJ Electronics
Alternative to the 12AX7 or ECC83. The JJ Electronic E83CC is a high quality dual triode that rivals the NOS version of this tube. The E83CC was originally designed as an audio specific dual triode with very low noise and microphonics. The JJ E83CC stays true to the original design with the signature thick frame grid and boxed plate. The rigid frame allows for tighter tolerances and closer construction which results in lower noise and increased stability. The JJ Electronic E83CC is a great choice for high fidelity amplifiers as well as guitar amps and studio equipment. The E83CC has the same pinout and amplification factor as a standard 12AX7 and can be used in any 12AX7 or ECC83 position. Guitarist Description: This frame grid tube has an incredibly rich yet balanced tone. The E83CC works well for clean sounds but also breaks up with a satisfying warmth and plenty of articulation.
Vacuum Tube - 6BY7 / EF85, Pentode
R.F. pentode with variable transconductance for use as wide-band amplifier.

Vacuum Tube - ECC802 / 12AU7, JJ Electronics, Long Plate
A high performance, long plate version of the ECC82 / 12AU7. Like all JJ preamp tubes, these are built into a rugged package using the spiral filament and robust plate structure resulting in low microphonics and high reliability. The long plate version of this tube differs from the standard version with its stronger and fuller sound which offers a wider and more balanced frequency response.
