Vacuum Tube - 6CS6 / EH90, Heptode
Miniature dual control pentagrid tube intended for use in sync separator circuits. In these circuits it provides improved noise immunity. Both control grids have sharp cut-off characteristics.
Vacuum Tube - 6J8G, Triode, Heptode
Converter tube designed for stable operation over an extended frequency range. It consists of a heptode mixer and a triode oscillator, having a common cathode. The injector grid of the heptode is internally connected to the triode grid.
Vacuum Tube - 6L7, Heptode
Mixer tube designed for service with a separate oscillator as the first detector in superheterodyne receivers. The control grid is of the remote cut-off type which allows the use of AVC and minimizes cross-modulation.
Vacuum Tube - 6SA7, Heptode
Metal pentagrid converter. It is intended to perform the combined functions of the mixer and oscillator in superheterodyne receivers, especially those of the all-wave type. The 6SA7 is constructed to provide excellent frequency stability.
Vacuum Tube - 7B8, Heptode
Pentagrid converter designed to perform the combined functions of the oscillator and mixer in superheterodyne receivers
Vacuum Tube - 12BH7, Electro-Harmonix
Superior medium-mu twin triode driver tube for hifi use. 3.5 watts dissipation per plate. New design of excellent quality
Starting at $17.85
Vacuum Tube - 6L6GC, JJ Electronics
The JJ Electronic 6L6GC is the classic pentode built with the rugged construction that only JJ could deliver. 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 6L6GC is a great option guitar amplifiers and Hi-Fi stereo equipment.
Starting at $18.25
Vacuum Tube - 6V6, JJ Electronics
This 6V6 has the standard rugged construction we’ve come to expect from JJ which allows it handle much higher plate voltages than the typical 6V6 tube. The JJ 6V6 can even be used in place of a 6L6 in some amplifiers. Overall this tube has a warm and balanced tone with incredible separation and response. These tubes can cover a spectrum of sounds and styles all within the same amplifier.
Starting at $15.95
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.
Starting at $15.50
Vacuum Tube - ECC802 / 12AU7, JJ Electronics, Long Plate
A high performance, long plate version of the ECC82 / 12AU7. Like all JJ preamp tubes, these are built into a rugged package using the spiral filament and robust plate structure resulting in low microphonics and high reliability. The long plate version of this tube differs from the standard version with its stronger and fuller sound which offers a wider and more balanced frequency response.
Starting at $13.45
Vacuum Tube - ECC803 / 12AX7, JJ Electronics, Long Plate
A high performance, long plate version of the ECC83 / 12AX7. Like all JJ preamp tubes, these are built into a rugged package using the spiral filament and robust plate structure resulting in low microphonics and high reliability. The long plate version of this tube differs from the standard version with its stronger and fuller sound. This tube will work in any 12AX7 or ECC83 position.
Starting at $13.95
Vacuum Tube - ECC99, JJ Electronics
The JJ Electronic ECC99 is a noval based dual triode. This tube features a rugged construction and is also available with gold pins. The ECC99 is typically used as a driver for power triodes in 2A3 and 300B amplifiers but can also be used as a power tube in small amps and headphone amps. This tube can also be a functional replacement for 5687, E182CC, 6840, and 6BL7 tubes. Note: Sockets on some of these types could have a different set-up.
Starting at $15.95
Vacuum Tube - EF806 / EF86 / 6267, JJ Electronics, Long Plate
