Using These in Effectrode Tube-Drive Pedal
Just to make sure everyone knows, I am using two of these NE 12AX7 tubes in V1 and V2 of my Effectrode Tube-Drive pedal; V3 is a JJ 12AT7 (stock). The difference is very noticeable. Again, this is an overdrive pedal and I am running it through a VOX AC10C blonde pebble grain amp with a stock 10" speaker. The amp has a JAN 5751 in V1, a J & J ECC803 S in V2 and two JJ EL84 power tubes. The tone change is powerful - fat, creamy, not tinny at all - how powerful low end punch, fat juicy mids and can be tweaked (at least on my pedal) to do what I call "scrunch," where it has crunch but can scream too. So far so good. Again, this is on an Effectrode "Tube-Drive" pedal and NOT through an amp. I'm from the "Show Me" state and for what I am doing, these tubes are up to snuff.
