Vacuum Tube - 12AY7, Groove Tubes

In Stock

This tube is closest in specification to a 12AX7 and can be exchanged with a slight drop in gain. Most companies changed over to the 12AX7 as it became more common. This tube can be tried in later Marshall amplifiers in the first gain position, where the owner of these amps would like to drop the background noise and lower the gain level to plexi or early 70s vintage gain levels with its returned wider frequency response.

Yes the 12AY7 is compatible with the 12AX7. It will have roughly half the gain of a 12AX7. For more information please see our article on 12AX7's:

The Groove Tube 12AY7 is not offered balanced. If you need a balanced 12AY7 you will want to look at our Tube Amp Doctor (TAD) offerings.
