Report Review for product Vacuum Tube - 12AX7LPS, Sovtek

You are reporting the following product review:

There are brilliant in hybrid amplifiers, and made all the difference in my Micro Dark and Vox VT40+
The VT40+ came with a Ruby 12ax7 which was rather good, but I decided to switch it out for another to see if I could tell a difference, I tried JJ's Chinese, Tung Sol. The Tung Sol was on par with the Ruby, The JJ and Chinese sounded thinner, and more distorted they changed the sound and dynamics of the amp, it didn't sound like a Vox tone anymore, though it's a hybrid amp, it lost the thick, warm tube like sag it had, I could feel that difference when I plucked the strings, the loss made the amp sound more solid state, without depth.
