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-12AX7-RB-TAD Vacuum Tube - 12AX7 / ECC83, Redbase, Tube Amp Doctor, Premium Selected
The all-new designed TAD 12AX7 / ECC83 Redbase is a miniature, high-mu twin triode with very good gain. These tubes are selected and recommended for guitar amps to improve overall responsiveness and dynamics. Because of its cathode-to-heater voltage-withstand capability, this tube works perfectly as a cathode follower. Best for thick, clean tones as well as for those modern preamps where a deep low end is required as well as for sounds requiring fat midrange, detailed airy top end and lots of power from the preamp. Recommended for all positions in medium gain amps or for V2+ positions in high-gain amps. For V1 in general but especially for high-gain amps or phono/audio-amps, we recommend the new 7025 / E83CC Redbase Highgrade T-7025-RB-TAD.
T-7025-RB-TAD Vacuum Tube - 7025, Redbase, Tube Amp Doctor, High Grade
The all-new TAD 7025 / E83CC Redbase Highgrade is carefully selected for all the demanding gain stages in any guitar or headphone amp, tube microphones or the extremely sensitive phono preamp-positions in audio amplifiers. Tonally, this tube produces fine, airy, silky and pleasant highs, a complex and dense midrange with clarity and definition in the low end - providing maximum smoothness and zero microphonics. Great warm cleans and creamy overdrive. Fine, unobtrusive highs, complex, dense mids and clear real bass. Selected for demanding applications for maximum smoothness and zero microphonics - even with very sensitive input stages of high-gain amplifiers.
P-K381-X Knob - Plastic, Set Screw, Skirted Pointer, 1.125" Diameter

It features a triangular pointer, a radial brushed metal top, and a line indicator. The large skirt has a diameter of 1.125 inches. Fits ¼” (6.35mm) pot shafts.
T-6V6GT-RB-TAD Vacuum Tube - 6V6GT-STR, Redbase, Tube Amp Doctor
The TAD 6V6GT-STR Redbase combines the tonal characteristics of an NOS 6V6GT such as from RCA or GE with the current requirements. It is a heavy duty 6V6GT tube, which can handle a higher plate voltage than regular 6V6GT tubes. The TAD 6V6GT-STR Redbase shines with the typical NOS "sweet top end" and at the same time a strikingly dense and complex midrange. Especially with this midrange characteristic they achieve a liveliness in tone that only NOS 6V6GT achieve and otherwise remains unmatched. Even when pushed into saturation there are no harsh upper mids, which is frequently the case with other 6V6s. Sweet full-bodied tone with silky highs. Tube Amp Doctor recommends the TAD 6V6GT-STR Redbase for all 6V6 power amps when a full yet freely defined tone is desired. The ideal tube for Fender Deluxe Tweed 5E3 or Blackface Princeton Reverb amps, single ended Class A amps like the Fender Tweed Champ, Vibro Champ, Fender Champion 600 or the Univalve.
