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-6GH8A Vacuum Tube - 6GH8A, Triode, Pentode
Miniature tube which contains a sharp-cutoff pentode and a medium-mu triode. Each section has a separate cathode and is electrically independent.
T-6H6 Vacuum Tube - 6H6, Diode, Twin
Twin-diode with individual cathodes brought out to separate base pins. The 6H6 is designed for service as a diode detector, automatic volume control rectifier, or as a low current power rectifier
T-6KD8_6U8A Vacuum Tube - 6KD8 / 6U8A, Triode, Pentode
Medium mu triode and sharp cutoff pentode in the 9 pin miniature construction. It is intended for use as a combined VHF oscillator and mixer in television receivers.
T-6SC7 Vacuum Tube - 6SC7, Triode, Dual, HI-MU
High-mu twin triode designed primarily for use as an AF voltage amplifier. Featuring a special shielding arrangement to reduce hum, the tube is well suited for low-level audio amplifier service.
T-6CG7_6FQ7 Vacuum Tube - 6CG7 / 6FQ7, Triode, Dual
Miniature medium-mu twin triode suitable for use in a wide variety of general-purpose applications. It is particularly useful as a vertical-deflection oscillator and horizontal-deflection oscillator in television receivers.
T-5879 Vacuum Tube - 5879, Pentode, Sharp Cut-Off
Sharp-cutoff pentode of the 9-pin miniature type intended for use as an audio amplifier in applications requiring reduced microphonics, leakage noise, and hum.
T-12AT6_HBC90 Vacuum Tube - 12AT6 / HBC90, Dual Diode, Triode
Combined high-mu voltage amplifier and double-diode detector using the 7-pin miniature construction. It is intended to provide output voltage adequate for full-power output of most beam-power tubes.
T-5751-SOVT Vacuum Tube - 5751, Sovtek
Sovtek 5751 dual triode.
T-6136_6AU6WA Vacuum Tube - 6136 / 6AU6WA, Pentode, Sharp Cut-Off
Miniature sharp-cutoff pentode designed primarily for use as a high gain radio-frequency or intermediate-frequency amplifier. Low grid-plate capacitance and high transconductance make it especially suited for high-frequency wide-band applications.
T-6V6GT-CHINA Vacuum Tube - 6V6GT, Chinese
Chinese 6V6GT Available in Singles, Matched Pairs or Matched Quads - please select from list.
Starting at $11.51
T-12AT7-GT Vacuum Tube - 12AT7, Groove Tubes
9 pin miniature preamp tube (Amplification Factor = 60)
Durable phase splitter or driver tube. Excellent in vibrato or reverb circuits where consistent, high output power is desired.
T-12AY7-GT Vacuum Tube - 12AY7, Groove Tubes
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.
T-KT88-JJ Vacuum Tube - KT88, JJ Electronics
A sonically faithful reproduction of the original tubes with a robust construction encased in a thick glass envelope. The JJ KT88 delivers a powerful 42 Watts with plenty of headroom to spare. This tube has a tone that is warm and lively with a detailed and balance response. The JJ KT88 is an excellent choice for Hi-Fi stereo equipment as well as guitar amplifiers. It can be used in place of 6550 tubes.
Starting at $39.95
T-6550WE-SOVT Vacuum Tube - 6550WE, Sovtek
The Sovtek 6550WE was designed to be the finest 6550 ever produced. Thicker plates, improved heat dissipation, higher transconductance, and increased linearity are just some of the inherent aspects of the new Sovtek super 6550s. The resulting performance advantages include 5% higher output power, increased reliability, greater headroom, and superior tone. The 6550WE features a metal-ringed base for increased power-handling capabilities.
Starting at $32.95
T-12AU6 Vacuum Tube - 12AU6, Pentode, Sharp Cut-Off
The 12AU6 is a pentode amplifier having a sharp cut-off control characteristic using the miniature construction. With high transconductance, low grid-plate capacitance, it is intended for service as either an RF or AF amplifier.
T-6973-EH-X Vacuum Tube - 6973, Electro-Harmonix
Electro-Harmonix 6973 Power Tube Beam power amplifier used in vintage Gretsch and Magnatone amplifiers. This is a real 6973, not a rebrand of a "close" tube.
Starting at $18.75
T-SSR01 Solid State Rectifier - For 5AR4, 5U4, 5Y3 Tubes
Solid State Rectifier Direct plug-in replacement for 5AR4, 5U4 and 5Y3 rectifier vacuum tubes in amplifiers with center tapped secondary power transformer. Use when less 'sag' is desired in the power supply; just switch back to the tube rectifier when 'sag' is desired.
T-6550-EH Vacuum Tube - 6550, Electro-Harmonix
Electro-Harmonix 6550 Vacuum Tube
  • Rugged beam tetrode power tube used in Ampeg SVT, Sunn, and hi-fi amplifiers.
  • Uses a special high temperature leaded glass for reliability and superior vacuum integrity.
  • Special high-temperature leaded glass for reliability and vacuum integrity.
  • Tri-alloy plate material for maximum power and dissipation.
  • Available in singles and matched tubes.
Starting at $33.95
T-6922-EH Vacuum Tube - 6922/E88CC, Electro-Harmonix
High frequency twin triode preamplifier tube used in studio and hi-fi equipment.
T-6146B-CHIN Vacuum Tube - 6146B, Chinese

T-6V6GT Vacuum Tube - 6V6GT, Tetrode, Beam Power
Beam-power pentode designed for use in the audio frequency power output stage of television and radio receivers. Capable of supply high power output with high sensitivity, high efficiency, and low third and higher-order harmonic distortion.
T-7027A-JJ Vacuum Tube - 7027A, JJ Electronics
The JJ Electronic 7027A offers the same reliability and tone as the JJ 6L6GC but with the correct pinout for vintage amplifiers that use 7027 tubes like older Ampegs. At 30W, this tube delivers plenty of headroom. The highs are clear and responsive with warm mids and tight solid lows. Known for their reliability and articulation, the JJ 7027A is a great option guitar amplifiers and Hi-Fi stereo equipment.
