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 - 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
Vacuum Tube - 12AU7 / 6189, Tung-Sol Reissue
Tung Sol 12AU7W / 6189 dual triode preamp tube. Made in Russia.
Vacuum Tube - 6SG7, Pentode, Semi Remote
Remote-cutoff pentode designed for use as a high-gain radio or intermediate-frequency amplifier. Features of the tube include high transconductance, low grid-plate capacitance, and a dual cathode connection
Vacuum Tube - 2050, Thyratron, ST Shape
Xenon filled four electrode thyratron with negative control characteristic. This tube is designed for relay applications for grid-controlled rectifier service.
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 - 13DE7, Triode, Dissimilar Double
Miniature double triode in the 9-pin miniature construction. Section #1 is intended for use as a vertical deflection oscillator having medium mu and section #2 is intended for use as a vertical deflection amplifier with lo mu.
Vacuum Tube - KT88, JJ Electronics, Blue Glass
Blue glass envelope. 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.
Vacuum Tube - 6189 / 12AU7WA, Triode, Dual, Medium MU
Miniature medium-mu twin triode suitable for a wide variety of general-purpose amplifier, oscillator, and multivibrator applications.
Vacuum Tube - 6AK6, Pentode
Heater-cathode type of tube intended for use in compact, light-weight equipment. Because of its small size, the 6AK6 can be used singly or in push-pull to effect a more compact design of power-line receivers.
Vacuum Tube - 6SF5, Triode
Heater-cathode type high-mu triode designed for service as a high gain audio-frequency amplifier and is especially useful in resistance-coupled amplifier circuits in a-c or battery operated equipment
Vacuum Tube - 6SN7GT(A / B), Triode, Dual, Medium MU
Medium-mu twin triode suitable for use in a wide variety of general-purpose amplifier and phase-inverter applications. It is also especially useful as a blocking oscillator, multivibrator, or vertical deflection amplifier in television receivers.
Vacuum Tube - 7591A, Tung-Sol Reissue
Tung Sol 7591A beam-power tube. Made in Russia.
Vacuum Tube - KT66, Tube Amp Doctor, Premium Selected
The Tube Amp Doctor KT-66 is an incredible remake of the classic British tube. With its large glass envelope contoured by smooth curves tapering into a rounded brown base, the TAD KT-66 not only looks like the original, it performs like the original. This KT66 offers plenty of headroom for a thick full bodied sound with smooth yet articulate highs. The KT-66 is famously used in vintage British plexi amps and makes a great replacement for that style of amplifier and many others. The TAD KT66 is matched for both plate current and transconductance and passes all of the tests of the TAD Premium Selection process. The TAD KT-66 can be used in any KT-66 position as well as 6L6GC and 5881 amps that can supply the required 1.27A for the heater.
Vacuum Tube - 12BV7 / 12BY7A, Pentode
Miniature power pentode designed primarily for use as the video output amplifier in television receivers. Like the 12BY7, it features high transconductance, high power sensitivity, and low interelectrode capacitances.
Vacuum Tube - 1U5, Diode, Sharp Cut-Off Pentode
Miniature diode sharp-cutoff pentode designed for use as a combined detector, audio-frequency amplifier, and automatic-volume-control tube in compact, battery-operated receivers.
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.
Vacuum Tube - 6AQ8 / ECC85, Dual Triode
High-mu twin triode
Vacuum Tube - 12SA7, Heptode
Pentagrid converter designed to minimize frequency drift. They are intended for service as combined oscillators and mixers in AC, storage battery, and AC/DC operated superheterodynes.
Vacuum Tube - 6Y6GT, Beam Power Amplifier
Beam power pentode primarily intended for use as an audio frequency power amplifier. It is particularly useful in applications where the available supply voltage is relatively low.
Vacuum Tube - KT66, Genalex Gold Lion
Super Premium power beam tetrode & exact copy of the original clear glass KT66, used in the early Marshall amps which created Eric Clapton’s "Bluesbreaker" Tone.” Full sound with improved bass response and shimmering top-end.
- Originally a British equivalent to 6L6 and a mainstay of the British hi-fi industry
- Used in 50s - 60s hi-fi favorites such as the Heath W-5M and many Leak amplifiers
Vacuum Tube - KT77, JJ Electronics
A reproduction of the original tubes that captures the sound that made the KT77 famous. In their typical fashion, JJ has built this tube in a solid construction that is robust and highly reliable. This tube has more headroom than a typical EL34. This is an excellent tube for adding more power to the sound of an EL34 amp.
Vacuum Tube - 6202 / 6X4WA, Rectifier, Full Wave
Miniature full-wave high-vacuum rectifier intended for use in power supplies which have low d-c output-current requirements.
Vacuum Tube - 12AU7A / ECC82, Tube Amp Doctor, Premium Selected
The Perfect Choice for Stereo Audio Applications - Ideal as a Balanced Driver. Latest revision providing great musical performance and rich tone. This TAD 12AU7A / ECC82 has especially strong systems which are selected to provide two symmetric triodes. The perfect choice for stereo audio applications and ideal as a balanced driver.
Vacuum Tube - 3V4 / DL94, Pentode, Power
Miniature power amplifier pentode designed for use in the power output stage of compact, battery operated equipment. It is particularly useful in three-way portable receivers which employ 90-volta batteries.
