Electro-Harmonix 12AY7 EH / 6072A Vacuum Tube
Electro-Harmonix 12AY7 EH / 6072A Vacuum Tube is rated 3.8333 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Are these pre tested?Price was right for an install on a homebuild Fender 5F6A preamp to tame it down. Very noisy. Hissed like a snake. Wound up using a GE 7025 from a stash, still would like a AY7.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For what it's worth....On the advice of someone else, I opted to mod my Trion 8000 mic with a 6072a tube. I've seen more expensive "NOS" and military grade tubes on the web, but I'm really, really satisfied with this quiet tube. I'm no hobbyist nor am I experienced with mic mods by the way. This was my first mic mod; replaced my stock xformer with a peluso bv11, inserted a Dayton audio coupling cap, and replaced my 6J1 tube with this EH 6072a; rewiring was required, but its not to hard. Lost a bit of gain after the mod....or gain a bit of headroom..however way you want to look at it. Not at all disappointed with this purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tube for a Chandler Tube DriverI have a rack-mount Chandler Tube Driver. I bought this tube, along with a 12AX7 and a 12AU7, to see which tube worked best for me. I settled on the lower-gain 12AU7. Tube Driver owners - try different tubes to get the tone you want.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Throttle back that preamp.Replaced a 12AX7 with this tube in the V1 position of my Fender 5F4. Gave me what I was looking for, less drive and more control. I've used plenty of EH tubes in other amps and they have proven to be true work horses. No problem with microphonics for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from About time...Don't know what took them so long, but am glad to see a well-made 12AY7 from these guys. Low-microphonics and rich tone characterizes this tube. Perfect for many older hi-fi and guitar amps and perfect for taming down the overly hot input stages on many Fenders. Swapping this in over a stock 12AX7 in the #1 position will give you more headroom and more flexibility with controlling volume. Like most Sovtek, E-H tubes, the envelope should be a bit thicker, although microphonics isn't a problem with this model.
