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.
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
