Helped tame my Blackstar HT-5RH
My Blackstar HT-5RH went from no gain to distortion with barely a turn of the knob. Not so good for getting that classic rock crunch. So I replaced the stock 12AX7 preamp tube with the JJ 5751 and it made it so I have from a light crunch to heavier crunch in between 7-9 o'clock for more of that classic rock feel while retaining the tone and character of the amp. It may have lost some treble after 12 o'clock, but by that point you still have all the gain you could need.
Amazing tube for guitar amps
I love this tube. I use two of them in my Fender Blues Deluxe RI, in V2 and V3 (gain matched for V3). (I love the EH 12AY7 for V1)
Compared to 'normal' 12AX7s they have about 30% less gain, which translates to more headroom. I find them very dynamic/responsive to picking.
I love the EQ of this specific tube. It has full, rich mids, sparkly treble, and a good amount of bass but not flubby. Really keeps all of your guitar there and gives you a soundspace to work with.
I would totally try these in an audio amplifier as well but I am not experienced in that realm.
Highly recommended by me. If your tube amp is a bit too loud or getting fizzy with the gain up, try these.
I almost got rid of my DSL1HR (non-50th Anniversary)
After the initial honeymoon, I came to the realization the Ultra-Gain channel on the DSL1H is just that. 0-to-UltraGain, nothing in between. Fine if that's your thing, but I was left wanting for more crunch.
And then I swapped V1 for this guy. Cue-in the celestial light beaming down on the half stack. Now we're playing!
It's essentially transformed the dirt channel. More options, more harmonics, musicality -favorite cliché here-. I can now dial almost any filth from light OD, to crunch, to grind, to full-bore. Still more gain than I usually need, past 3 O'clock, but I'm glad that option is still there.
I did lose a smidge of power in the operation, but this is my desktop/home/bedroom-studio amp, and it's way too forking loud for quiet practice as it is. So, in my opinion, for the purpose of the amp, this is no loss.
Seriously, if you have a DSL1 and read this: do it. Go. You'll be buying yourself a brand new amp, AC/DC in a mini-head for 20$ CAD. Go. Add-it to your cart...
Slotted in V1 in all my amps
by Jeffrey Roy
This tube is a must have in P1 for me. Along with that 30% drop in gain, the frequencies that this tube brings out are simply delightful. For me it's a must have in V1 for taming shrillness and boominess and to give me more clean headroom.
If you're on the fence or feel that your tone could be smoothed out a little, pick up one of these tubes and give it a try before ditching your amp. It's worth trying.
