Vacuum Tubes

The first electronic amplification of sound was done with Vacuum Tubes. We have pre-amp, power and rectifier vacuum tubes among other types in New Old Stock from the golden era of American & European manufacturing as well as current production tubes from today.

T-E34L-JJ Vacuum Tube - E34L, JJ Electronics
The JJ Electronic E34L adds more power to a standard EL34 due to its higher grid voltage rating. This increase gives the tube more headroom and a tighter response on the low end. The wide frequency response of this tube offers excellent harmonics that work in a variety of genres ranging from the cleanest cleans to rich and aggressive breakup.

T-12AY7-JJ Vacuum Tube - 12AY7, JJ Electronics
A low microphonic tube built in the same rugged fashion as all JJ preamp tubes. This tube offers the classic warm 12AY7 sound with rich and balanced harmonics when pushed enough to break up. It’s a great choice for authentic tweed tones but can also help clean up amps when used in place of a 12AX7. Additionally, the JJ 12AY7 is a great replacement in 6072 microphones.
P-YJR Vacuum Tube - Solid State Tube Rectifier, Yellow Jackets®, YJR
The YJR is a direct plug-in replacement adapter for use in most amplifiers that use 5AR4/GZ34, 5U4, 5Y3 or similar full-wave rectifier tubes. The YJR converts your amp’s vacuum tube rectifier to a solid state rectifier, reducing tube sag for a tighter sound and feel. The tube rectifier can easily be swapped back in when sag is desired. This Yellow Jacket® is a solid state device and as such does not come with vacuum tubes.
  • Converts most audio amplifiers which use a vacuum tube rectifier 5AR4/GZ34, 5U4 or 5Y3 to a solid state device.
  • Safe for all common amplifiers and transformers.

Note: Because there is no warm up of a rectifier tube when using this solid state device, it is critical that a standby switch is used that will allow the power tube filaments to warm up before high voltage is applied.
T-35Z5GT Vacuum Tube - 35Z5GT, Rectifier, Half Wave
