JJ 12AY7 Preamp Vacuum Tube


The new JJ 12AY7 tube is a low-gain replacement for a 12AX7. It has less gain than a 12AT7 - but not quite as low as a 12AU7. A good alternative to the pricey and hard to find 6072 for your microphones.

Price is for a single tube with standard testing.

    I prefer the EH for the 12AY7, the sound stay clean at higher volume.

    The sweetest preamp tube I have found yet.

    Would use nothing less than this excellent quality JJ 12AY7 in any of my 5F1 or 5E3 builds. They definitely make the preamp stage first rate.

    Put this into a Marshall AVT 100 Valvestate 2000. The result is a far more classic Marshall sound. This tube removed the Fuzz Box and put the Creamy Scream back in.

    Put this tube into V1 position into my Carvin V3M. It really mellowed this amp. In V2 slot (drive channels) I have a Jan Phillips 5751. I’m thinking of putting another 12ay7 in V2 and move the 5751 into V3 (clean channel).
    I play mainly 60’s, 70’s and some early 80’s. I want slight break up and i’ll use pedals for intense dirt if needed. By the way love this company. Descent prices and fast delivery
