The reissue Genalex Gold Lion ECC83/B759 recreates the sound signature of the original. This tube features balanced sections and gold plated pins.

5751 TAD Premium Selected Low-noise Tube for Best Clean Tone! The TAD Selected 5751 is our first choice for noticeably improved clarity, smoothness, and a true vintage tone character for most guitar amps! There will still be plenty of gain - so if you own a high-gain preamp that does not have these classic crunch characteristics, the 5751 tube will work wonders. In hi-fi preamps and CD players, the TAD selected 5751 will lower the noise floor and sound smoother and clearer than many 12AX7 tubes. Especially this low-noise tube is recommended for best clean tone with big bottom, warm midrange and silky top end. Performs great for HiFi too! Replaces any 12AX7A/WA, ECC83, 7025 etc. NOTE: SRV used a 5751 to improve his clean tone with vintage Fender amps producing that thick and three-dimensional bold tone.

7025 HIGHGRADE TAD Premium Selected Warm, clean tone with creamy overdrive! PREMIUM selected quality for the most demanding amp stages. This tube works greatly for warm clean tones and creamy overdrive. We recommend this tube for the 1st gain stage and as input tube. It upgrades 12AX7A and ECC83 tubes and replaces E83CC tubes. The HIGHGRADE Selection is the tip-of-the-top quality at the lowest noise (microphony, hum, hiss) level. Tipically only 0,5-2% out of the whole production of this tube meet the HIGHGRADE requirements. NOTE: due to extreme demanding TAD-Selection criteria, the availability of this tube is limited. Please check the information about availability. The TAD 7025 Highgrade can replace any ECC83, E83CC, 12AX7, 12AX7A, 12AX7M, 12AX7WA/WB/WC/LPS/EH, 5751 or 7025. In case this tube is currently not available, we recommend as replacement tube: RT080
