Like all NOS (New Old Stock) RFT preamp tubes, the NOS RFT ECC81 / 12AT7 is a low noise and low microphonic preamp tube. It sounds great and is especially good for guitar amps because of its rugged construction. These RFT ECC81 tubes were made in Germany during the 1970's and '80's.

I used two of these as power tubes in a Marshall 50th Anniversary JMP1C and it smoked the factory tube. Sounds crunchy, woody and clear.

Clean your amp up

by

These tubes are very transparent and clear.�If you have a dark amp they will brighten it up and make each note you play more articulate. I have two preamp tube stages in my amp. With a Mullard 12ax7 in V1 it sounds dark and muddy, but with the RFT 12at7 in V1, it sounds really clear and transparent. I have the Mullard 12ax7 in V2 to bring warmth back in and now the amp sounds fantastic. I would not use solely the RFT's in an amp because the amp would become too cold and brittle, but adding one to clean up the mids and bass really does the trick.

Lovely 12at7

This is a beautifully constructed tube! Fit and finish are amongst the best I've seen. Clear tone with a "golden" voice. Every bit as good as the RFT 12ax7's but much more affordable. Stock up while you can!
