Sovtek 12AX7LPS Vacuum Tube is rated 4.7273 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great PI for Egnater Rebel 30Worked exactly like I had hoped for my Rebel 30 in the V5 position. Little pricey, but it was basically half price once I figured in that I needed it to get to $99

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good value good soundThese babies sound very nice! A little cheaper thatn the Electro harmonix (gold Pin)and similar quality (i still think tubes in general should be cheaper). I replaced the stock ART tube in a mic preamp with this guy and the sound is night and day as far as I am concerned.Again, no features, thus the 3 rating on that option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tube!I have tried several different manufactures 12AX7 / 7025 tubes with varying results in my Boogie. However my search stopped with the 12AX7LPS. All 3 channels improved dramatically. When matched with a set of JJ power tubes you could actually hear the Glass tube sound resonating from the speakers. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 12AX7 of choice.I use these tubes in a 18watt handwired copy of a hot rodded Marshall 1974x, a Mesa DC-2, Mesa Nomad 100 and an ADA MP-2. They are warm, well rounded and rich in harmonic structure. The amount of noise is minimal for the amount of usable gain you get out of them. They really shine if you are looking for high definition with a natural warmth that I havent been able to duplicate with any other tubes. They are a bit pricier, but, my opinion, WELL worth the extra funds!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Marantz 7C preamp and Sovtek LPSNo need to search for old NOS tubes. These Sovtek LPS are musical, quiet, about as good as it gets to my ear. Improved imaging, stability in my ancient Marantz 7C. True hi fi reproduction of upper harmonics. They take 10 - 20 hours to break in so don't feel disappointed at first listen - they sound somewhat cold and dead - clinical - initially. But, in a few hours the sound warms up. Hey, after all, the Russians KNOW serious music!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 12AX7LPS tubeI bought three of these to test in the preamps of my tube guitar amps. This tube is very smooth and mellow, which for my purposes was not the desired effect. Based on my ear, this would be great in a Fender amp, or any amp that one is trying to smooth out. I actually like a very grainey distortion sound, like a notchy distortion that almost sounds like a ton of power amp sag. these kind of removed that and smoothed the preamp right out. I might try these in my Fender Super Sonic next, but for my Mesa Dual Rectifier and my Peavey JSX, these did not produce the tone I was seeking in general, but they are a nice tube. they do have a full sound and are warm, as other reviewers have mentioned. If you have a harsh preamp, these just may be the ticket. A bit overpriced as far as standard issue 12AX7s go.
