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 - KT77, JJ Electronics
A reproduction of the original tubes that captures the sound that made the KT77 famous. In their typical fashion, JJ has built this tube in a solid construction that is robust and highly reliable. This tube has more headroom than a typical EL34. This is an excellent tube for adding more power to the sound of an EL34 amp.

Premium directly heated heavy duty rectifier Diode. Re-issue of the most popular rectifier valve ever built by Mullard. Helps extend the life of the other valves in the amplifier by allowing them to heat up before plate voltage is applied.
- Low internal voltage drop & controlled heater warm up time
- Excellent choice for both Hifi and instrument amplification
- Replacement/upgrade for all 5AR4/GZ34 types
Vacuum Tube - 6AL5 / 6EB5, Dual Diode
The 6AL5 combines two independent diode units in the 7 pin miniature construction. Its high perveance permits high efficiency in either FM or AM detector service.
Vacuum Tube - 50L6GT, Beam Power Amplifier
The 50L6GT is designed for service in the output stage of ac/dc receivers. It delivers a high power output with high power sensitivity from low supply voltages.
Vacuum Tube - EL844, JJ Electronics
The JJ Electronic EL844 is a variation on the classic tube which reduces the overall headroom by 25%. With the reduced power, hitting that rich distortion that the EL84 is notorious for is more manageable. This tube will hit full saturated power tube sounds without having to crank the amps volume as high which makes them a great choice for recording as well as home / bedroom use.
