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.
Vacuum Tube - 5881 / 6L6WGC, Sovtek
The 5881 is a very reliable tube that is widely used in many current production tube amplifiers. It has a warm tone with good 'bite.' This modern version is able to tolerate higher voltages than its 5881 / 6L6 cousins. The Sovtek 5881 delivers a warm, round tone that "sweetens" any vintage or modern guitar amp design. Built to rigid military standards, the 5881 will tolerate higher voltages than any other 6L6. In fact, they're frequently used as replacements for the old 7027 model in vintage Ampegs. Extremely consistent from piece to piece.

Vacuum Tube - 12AT7 / ECC81-Cz, Tube Amp Doctor, Premium Selected
The TAD ECC81 / 12AT7-Cz is selected with regards to a tight balance of both triodes making it ideal for the use as a balanced phase inverter. In addition to the perfect symmetrical systems, the strong amplification characteristics of the TAD ECC81 / 12AT7-Cz support increased dynamics of the output stage when used as phase driver or phase inverter tube. Q: When does a power tube become a Premium Selected power tube? A: All power tubes labeled Premium Selected have passed the following tests:
- Plate Current (PC) and Amplification (TC)
- Low Noise Test
- Microphonic Test
- Sonic Tests
- Shock Tests
- Listening Tests
- Shorts & Leakage Tests
Vacuum Tube - 12BH7A, Triode, Dual, Medium MU
Miniature, medium-mu twin triode designed primarily for use as a vertical-deflection amplifier in television receivers. The two sections may be employed in parallel, or as a combined vertical-deflection amplifier and vertical oscillator.
Vacuum Tube - EL84, Classic Series, Psvane
The Psvane EL84 is a high quality output pentode. It has a noval base and maximum plate power of 12W. The Psvane EL84 captures the classic sound of this tube and is an excellent choice for both guitar and stereo amplifiers. The Psvane Classic Series is focused on the reproduction of popular vacuum tubes found in classic audio equipment. When designing the Classic Series, Psvane collected the most sought-after NOS tubes and analyzed each element of their construction, incorporating the most effective manufacturing techniques to produce stable tubes with excellent sound. Whether used in guitar amplifiers or hifi stereo systems, the Psvane Classic Series vacuum tubes excel in all applications. Psvane has been producing high quality vacuum tubes since 2011. The Psvane team originally formed in Shuguang’s high-end tube division but eventually split off to form their own brand.

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.
Vacuum Tube - 3S4 / DL92, Pentode, Power
Filamentary type power output pentode in the miniature construction. It is characterized by economy of filament power and ability to perform well at low plate supply voltages such as encountered in portable equipment.
Vacuum Tube - 6CA7, JJ Electronics
A true to form reproduction of a classic tube that will work in most EL34 amps. The 6CA7 is often considered the American cousin to the British EL34. Sonically, this tube is closer to a 6L6 than an EL34 but without the sometimes harsh high end of the 6L6.
