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.
The JJ Electronic 5881 is very similar to the 6L6GC but with a plate dissipation of 23W rather than 30W. Another physical difference is the shorter bulb. These tubes have a soft and balanced response that sounds great in both guitar amps and hifi equipment. The JJ 5881 will work in any amp that uses 6L6 tubes.

Compact, quick heating thyratron designed for timing and control applications. It is xenon filled for quick starting and the ability to operate within very wide temperature limits.
High vacuum full wave rectifying tube.
Beam pentode designed for use as a series regulator in high-voltage power supplies.
Special quality tube designed for use as a wide band amplifier, cathode follower, series regulator tube for stabilized DC supply and output tube.
Beam-deflection tube for use in balanced-modulator, balanced mixer, and frequency-converter applications in single and double sideband, suppressed-carrier communication equipment operating at frequencies up to 100 Mc.
Novar type beam power tube used as a horizontal-deflection amplifier in color and black-and-white television receivers.
Beam power tube for horizontal-deflection-amplifier service in black-and-white TV receivers.
Semi-remote cutoff triode in the 7 pin miniature construction. It is designed for use as a VHF and RF amplifier at a B+ of 135 volts.
Neutrode triode tuner in the 7 pin miniature construction. It is designed for use in grounded cathode RF amplifiers, with the neutrode construction providing a lower grid to plate capacitance with consequent ease of neutralization.
Russian Tung-Sol 6EU7 tube. High-Mu twin triode with 9 pin miniature base. Made in Russia.
Duplex-diode high-mu triode in which separate cathodes are provided for the diode and triode sections. The tube is primarily intended for service as a combined horizontal phase detector and reactance tube in television receivers.
Dual Tetrode, Power
Heater-cathode type transmitting beam power amplifier in the 9 pin miniature construction. It is intended for use in compact, low-power mobile transmitters and in the low-power stages of larger fixed station transmitters.
Twin diode miniature type intended for applications where dependable performance under shock and vibration is paramount. The 5726 is a "premium" version of the 6AL5W
Sharp cut-off tetrode designed for use as a radio-frequency or intermediate-frequency amplifier or as a detector tube in battery operated receivers.
Small, closely spaced, low-capacitance, high-vacuum diode designed for use through ultra-high frequencies. In measurement work, it is well suited to mounting in a probe and will maintain accuracy
Twin medium-mu triode whose sections are electrically independent except for the common heater. It is designed especially for use in equipment where the operating voltages are obtained from a 12 cell storage battery

12SG7 - Pentode, Semi-Remote Cut-Off, JA
The 12JT6A is the same as the 6JT6A except for heater characteristics and ratings.
A new take on the classic 12AX7 preamp tube. While it uses the same rugged build and thick glass as other JJ preamp tubes, this tube differs in construction from the typical 12AX7 in that it features a medium-long plate, which provides a dynamic and open sound with a rich forward sounding mid range. This tube offers low noise and low microphonics.
Premium directly heated heavy duty rectifier Diode. Re-issue of the most popular rectifier valve ever built by Mullard. Helps extend the life of the other valves in the amplifier by allowing them to heat up before plate voltage is applied.
- Low internal voltage drop & controlled heater warm up time
- Excellent choice for both Hifi and instrument amplification
- Replacement/upgrade for all 5AR4/GZ34 types
