1x7025EH 3xTung Sol 12AX7 and 2X 6L6GC-STR Kit
This is a quality Russian valve kit and is optimised for a superb rock and metal sound from amps such as the Engl Fireball 60.
Tung Sol produce a strong gutsy tone . The Tung Sol 6L6-STR are superb relatable output valves with excellent break up characteristics that give your amp that superb sound that makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. The good gain Tung Sol 12AX7 have a great mid range tone without and best described as the notes dont turn to mush when the amp is cranked up.
The Tung Sol 6l6GC-STR are matched and come with a test certificate.
The downside of high gain amps is that the amp becomes very sensitive to any noise, hum and microphonics in the first valve on the input. This is due to any shortcomings here its amplified through the whole amp valve chain.
Up till the 1970’s, a special build ECC83/12AX7 was made which was tested for low noise, hum and microphonics. This was designated as the 7025. It went out of production. Makers including the Russian factory branded valves with the secondary part number “7025” but in reality this was a bit of marketing.
The good news is that Electro Harmonix has made a proper 7025 that deserves the marking. It just became available in March 2020 and we got the first batch in the UK.
We test every valve we sell so the 7025 and 12AX7 has the anode currents noted on each box.We test your valves on our suite of AVO testers.
