    Tung Sol 12AX7 - "powerful preamp tube"

    08/18/13

    I had been waiting for some time to try these particular 12ax7 tubes out. I had read a great deal of good things about this model of tube and had very high expectations going into the purchase. I ordered these to go into the third high gain ch…

    Tung Sol 6L6GC / 7581 - " The best recent? I recommend it."
    translated

    The 7581 is part of the category of 6L6GC, it is Russian production. Warning, the name 7581 can be confusing in trying to recall the old and found Sylvania 7581A, American manufacturing. Both tubes have in common than being modified 6L6GC: Tung Sol t…

    Tung Sol 12AX7 - " very bright sound"

    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. …

    For me the best lamp preamp world. To the metal anyway. I yucky 3 Sovtek preamp from Tung ground, I do not want to hear about it! It is V1 to handle the saturation ... Besides I tried a Sovtek JJ goldpin V1 .... inconclusive, JJ has finished V2 to ha…

    Tung Sol 12AX7 - " Correct."
    translated

    05/13/13

    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,…

    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 distortio…

    Tung Sol 12AX7 - " A test"
    translated

    10/22/12

    So I'm tempted by the reputation of Tung Sol (high gain, not too acute) I would say they are high gain (I use one in my pedal Pedaltone Koch), it brings more bite, but it depends on the combination with other lamps. Nice saturation, but its average…

    Tung Sol 12AX7 - " very good but with moderation."
    translated

    10/10/11

    Of large lamps tested, the Tung-Sol 12AX7 Reissue is one of the player in my various config. I use it as input to the low gain amplifier, and position cold bias (distortion of floor) on High gain. Has a very high gain (warning talking about vol…

    Tung Sol 12AX7 - " fabulous!"

    02/24/11

    I use this tube for over 1 year in a head EVAN 60 in input stage, after having tried: 1 JJ ECC83, a Sovtek 12 7 wb ax, a ax 12 EH 7; and TS is really best at this place there! I like its gain, its texture, its sound balance and strength in time! …
