Tung-Sol 12AX7 Vacuum Tube is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not really better than other 12AX7sTitle says it all. I was expecting a real difference in the quality of signal. Didn't happen. I could not tell a difference at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Add ClarityI tried one of these in V1 of a guitar amp with great success. Compared to Electro Harmonix, Sovtek LPS, Sovteck WA, and JJ this tube takes the cake for adding clarity. The highs are definitely more sparklying and mids have more chime. If you want to tame the highs of amp go with the Electo harmonix, if you want a greater band width, go with the Tung Sol. Can't comment on durability but seams constructed similar to Electro Harmonix which I have found to be among the most durable and lease microphonic prone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sweet tube!I bought this to replace my old JJ tube in my SWR bass head and it made a noticeable difference. It's warm, excellent clarity, earth shattering lows and peircing highs. And the best part is that it's clear and I cannot get it to sound muddy. Can't beat it for the price.Even my bandmates did a double take and said wow!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good 12AX7 to brighten up your ampIf clarity and detail is your first priority, this is your tube. Other Russian tubes, like the Mullard reissue and the Sovtek 12AX7LPS, sound dramatically darker and "fuzzier". The Tung-Sol is just the thing to clean up your Hi Fi amp. Cymbals jump right out of the mix! Violins seemed to sound a little harsh right out of the box, but smoothed out after about 50 hours of break-in. It might be a bit too bright for some old Fenders with 6L6's, but was perfect for my application.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty goodThis sounds pretty good. I prefer the WA and the LPS Sovteks but this is my 3rd favorite. I think it's a bit overpriced though.
