franfranky's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" very bright sound"

Tung Sol 12AX7
V1, unwanted in my Hiwatt (played with a bass). its very clear but too acute, it sounds very "metal". Lamp not super silent drive in it brings a little hum. rather brief suitable for metal I think, but not hot and bluesy tones.

Tung Sol 12AX7
I'm not a fan of the Tung Sol, at least in a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe. The lamp itself is probably not bad (and that is why, careful, I note still "correct") and I do not doubt it to be the case in other circumstances, but I much prefer her Groove Tube, Ruby or DD. We get along: it does not sound bad but his character does not satisfy me in my Hot Rod. I find it too aggressive, loaded with sharp and a little unbalanced. I tried worse but on the other hand so much better that I do not do it again this choice.
Note that it seemed more at ease than V1 V2. A test, however, if one seeks a sonic character of this kind (which I can totally understand!).

kaoslord's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" a little disappointed"

Tung Sol 12AX7
purchased more out of curiosity than necessity, because it is supposed to deliver a sound "metal" ...
after testing on my head Jet City 100W lamp is not terrible ...
in V1, but its very good gain and loss of right lower importance.
in distortion I find it very smooth, flat, almost sterile anything.
Ditto for V2, the distortion is a bit too flat and smooth.
Tried V3 (cathode follower position), it was super weird electrical noise, even at zero volume master! I quickly removed.

Conclusion: good gain, but its too entitled to my opinion.
And not used in cathode follower position!
