We test every valve ourselves on our in-house analogue and digital valve testers and five 120 day warranty. You can choose a Supermatch version which is specially selected to be balanced in specification for each of the two triodes in the 12AY7. Matching is on each anode current and gain. Just select YES on the Supermatch option
