From our review of this tube: "The EH-12AX7 tube has a nice balanced sound, a very low noise floor and excellent performance in terms of microphonics. The lack of microphonics may be due in part to the return of a shorter plate structure or better materials. I've had some samples that were tried in various amp stages. Pre-amps, tone stacks and phase inverters, a winner in every location...I have used the EH to successfully tame amps that defied all other attempts to kill microphonics and unwanted feedback. This tube is a winner, buy 'em and try 'em, they may be just the piece you've been looking for."

One other note about the construction of these Electro Harmonix 12AX7 tubes is they have filaments that are almost completely encased in the plate structure. They often don't "light up" when working properly. This is not a problem, it's normal for the 12AX7-EH.

Excellent distortion tube


Use it in my old Peavey Classic 30 on drive chanel along with Tung Sol on clean chanel. Sounds sooo much better than JJ on Peavey. Oh and use EH in power section as well.

microphonic in 1 month


i replaced the tubes in my amp with these they are what came in it new and had no problem for years now 1 tube has gone microphonic in just a month i hope it was just a bad one time will tell has me wondering if i should have went with a different brand

One of the best values


I like these 12AX7's... they have strong gain and good tone. I find these tubes to have much of the same characteristics of the Tung-Sol, in a more affordable price. I use these in many of my new amp builds.
