Miniature heptode primarily intended to perform the combined functions of mixer and oscillator in automobile radio receivers. Specially designed to operate with plate and screen voltages supplied directly from a 12-volt storage battery.
Vacuum Tube - 6136 / 6AU6WA, Pentode, Sharp Cut-Off
Miniature sharp-cutoff pentode designed primarily for use as a high gain radio-frequency or intermediate-frequency amplifier. Low grid-plate capacitance and high transconductance make it especially suited for high-frequency wide-band applications.
Vacuum Tube - 7581A / KT66, Beam Power Amplifier
Beam-power pentode primarily designed for use in audio-frequency power-amplifier applications. The 7581A is unilaterally interchangeable with the 7581 and the 6L6GC.
Vacuum Tube - 25L6, Beam Power Amplifier, Metal
Power-amplifier tube of the all-metal type for use in the output stage of transformerless (ac/dc) radio receivers, especially those designed to have ample reserve of power-delivering bilities.
Vacuum Tube - 6CA7, JJ Electronics
A true to form reproduction of a classic tube that will work in most EL34 amps. The 6CA7 is often considered the American cousin to the British EL34. Sonically, this tube is closer to a 6L6 than an EL34 but without the sometimes harsh high end of the 6L6.
Starting at $16.45
Vacuum Tube - 6SL7, Tung-Sol Reissue
Tung Sol 6SL7 dual triode preamp tube. Made in Russia. The best current production 6SL7 available. NOS performance and sound at a fraction of the price. Sweeten up the preamp section of that Vintage Ampeg B-15.
Vacuum Tube - 5X4G, Rectifier, Full Wave
The 5X4 is designed for service as a power rectifier in AC operated receivers which require high currents
Vacuum Tube - 6SH7GT, Pentode, Sharp Cut-Off, RF
Triple grid sharp cut-off amplifier. It is designed for service in high gain RF and IF amplifier applications and for limited service in FM receivers. The double cathode connection is useful in reducing cathode circuit coupling.
Starting at $4.50
Vacuum Tube - 12AU7A / ECC82, Triode, Dual, Medium MU
Medium-mu twin triode intended for service in radio and television receivers or in audio amplifiers. The tube is suitable for use in a variety of stages, such as general-purpose amplifier, phase inverter, oscillator, or multivibrator.
Vacuum Tube - 6SL7GT, Tube Amp Doctor, Premium Selected
The Tube Amp Doctor 6SL7GT meets all of the reliability and quality requirements of a TAD Premium Selected tube including low noise and gain balanced triodes. This 6SL7 has a great lively tone with smooth and clear highs and a sonically rich mid range. The TAD 6SL7GT can also be used as an upgrade for Russian 6N9 and 6N9P tubes.
