Vacuum Tube - GZ34 / 5AR4, Mullard Reissue
Premium directly heated heavy duty rectifier Diode. Re-issue of the most popular rectifier valve ever built by Mullard. Helps extend the life of the other valves in the amplifier by allowing them to heat up before plate voltage is applied.
- Low internal voltage drop & controlled heater warm up time
- Excellent choice for both Hifi and instrument amplification
- Replacement/upgrade for all 5AR4/GZ34 types
Vacuum Tube - 3Q5GT, Tetrode, Beam Power
Filament type power-amplifier pentode tube designed for use in the output stage of battery operated equipment.

Triode intende for use as a grounded grid UHF amplifier for bands IV and V.
Vacuum Tube - 12AY7 / 6072A, Tube Amp Doctor, Premium Selected
Tweed Up Your Amp! Vintage tone for original vintage Fender tweed amps. The original tube for all those Fender® tweed amps from the 50s. Brings back the original sound to your tweed amp.
Vacuum Tube - 6A7, Pentagrid Converter
Pentagrid converter designed for service as an oscillator and mixer in AC operated and ac-operated receivers. With the exception of heater ratings, they have identical ratings and electrical characteristics.
Vacuum Tube - 6V6-SD-M, Groove Tubes, Matched Pair
The 6V6 is a low-output power tube (12-18 watts) often used in Fender® amplifiers, including the Champ®, Deluxe™, Dual Professional, Vibro-King®, Princeton®, Vibrolux® and others. It has a very warm, round and soft response with rich harmonics, and distorts easily. One of the best choices ever produced for rehearsal and recording amplifiers. Our most premium design, for long life and professional performance. The choice for many pro players who use Groove Tubes in their favorite amps for recording and rehearsal; fully captures the spirit and sound of tube amps from the '50s and '60s to the present.
Vacuum Tube - 12AX7LPS, Sovtek
9 pin miniature preamp tube (Amplification Factor = 100). This Russian tube is full bodied and well balanced. It has a high gain with a very smooth presentation. In overdrive, it is not quite as defined as the 12AX7-S-JJ, but it offers more crunchy fizz.
Vacuum Tube - 6GM8 / ECC86, Dual Triode
Frame-grid twin triode designed for low supply voltage applications. It is especially suitable for instrumentation/industrial use as a direct-coupled wide band amplifier and for automobile radio as an RF amplifier and self-oscillating mixer.
Vacuum Tube - 0B3 / VR90, Voltage Regulator
The 0B3 is a two-element gas-filled, cold cathode voltage regulator. It is designed to provide regulated outputs of approximately 90 volts.
Vacuum Tube - 5AR4 STR, Tube Amp Doctor
Tube Amp Doctor 5AR4 Rectifier, Premium Selected. A faithful reproduction of the Mullard/VALVO GZ34. Pure power and the typical sag is the distinguishing characteristic of the most popular guitar amps of the 1960s guitar heroes till today.
Vacuum Tube - 7A4 / XXL, Triode, Medium-MU
Medium-mu triode using the lock-in construction. It is designed for use as an oscillator, detector, or amplifier. It is characterized by moderately high transconductance. It is particularly applicable for service in the higher frequencies.
Vacuum Tube - 1U4, Pentode
Miniature, filamentary, sharp-cutoff pentode intended for radio frequency or intermediate frequency amplifier use in battery-operated receivers.
Vacuum Tube - 6BC8 / 6BZ8, Dual Triode
Miniature, medium-mu, semi-remote cutoff twin triode intended for application as a VHF cascode amplifier in a television receiver.
Vacuum Tube - 5751, Tung-Sol Reissue
Tung Sol 5751 dual triode preamp tube. Made in Russia. NOS specs call the 5751 a “special 12AX7” having a high-mu amplification factor of 70.
Vacuum Tube - 5933 / 807W, Tetrode, Beam Power
Rugged beam amplifier tube designed for use in mobile transmitters or amplifiers which may be submitted to shock or vibration.
Vacuum Tube - 6KD8 / 6U8A, Triode, Pentode
Medium mu triode and sharp cutoff pentode in the 9 pin miniature construction. It is intended for use as a combined VHF oscillator and mixer in television receivers.
Vacuum Tube - KT88, Svetlana
The Svetlana KT88 is an excellent choice for users looking to upgrade their current KT88 tubes. This tube is a glass envelope beam power tetrode. It is intended for audio frequency power amplifiers. High plate dissipation, close manufacturing tolerances, and thorough processing provides improved reliability and superior sonic performance. The Svetlana KT88 is manufactured in the Svetlana factory in St.
