The Tung-Sol name and trademark have been acquired by the New Sensor Corporation. This new production Tungsol tube is manufactured at their Xpo-Pul factory (also known as Reflektor) in Saratov, Russia. New Sensor is an American corporation and since taking ownership of this factory has been steadily improving the quality of current production tubes.

From our review of this tube: "There are only so many ways to describe tube tone and most have become cliches. The Tung Sol 12AX7 has the gain and drive of a Chinese 12AX7 and the pure tone of a Mullard or Brimar."

According to the manufacturer, this Tungsol 12AX7 is the Ultimate 12AX7. Big, warm, and musical. High Gain, ultra-low microphonics, and superb linearity with a dynamic 3-D sound.

One other note about the construction of these tubes is they have filaments that are almost completely encased in the plate structure. They don't "light up" brightly when working properly.

Note to audiophiles: These tubes are great for linestage preamps, but generally not phono stages where a very low noise floor is required.

I installed a Tungsol in position V1 in my Mono 15 W combo. I have JJs in V2 and V3. I like Tungsol better than JJ in V1. It has more clarity and definition. To my ears, it's brighter and with distortion the sound is better defined in high mids and treble.The amp sounds better with Tungsol. It is not day and night, but it is certainly better. Thanks to Jon for his help and expertise and quick delivery.

Ce n'est pas le jour et la nuit, mais c'est certainement mieux. Merci à Jon pour son aide et son expertise et la livraison rapide.

LOVE THIS TUBE!!!

I LOVE this tube. I use it Exclusively in my Orange Micro Dark Terror AND my Orange Terror Stamp amps. This tube seems to produce a more 3D sound with more headroom, sustain, clarity, note articulation and more volume than other tubes. It's no wonder that it is one of the best selling New Production tubes out there today! Also, when they are in use, they Barely
even light up, which is normal for this tube. Try one today! Oh......and make sure you get it here from The Tube Store!

Very nice.

These are good preamp tubes. They're similar to the Sovtek 12AX7LPS and the JJ ECC83S. I would buy them again. Very nice. I put them in a Marshall TSL60 half stack. And I got lots of crunch, gain and overdrive. They were very quiet and microphonic free.

Awesome upgrade!

Tried all types of 12AX7 preamp tubes I had on hand like EH, Mesa, JJ, TAD, GT, Genalex, and Sovtek. I installed 2 in my Blackstar Club HT 50 MKII V1 and V2 positions. The clean and dirty channels really came to life. I'm also running a pair of GT 6L6S's instead of EL-34 or KT77's.

Superb clarity! TheTubeStore is amazing!
