Sovtek 5751

Can you say Stevie Ray? These tonally superior preamp tubes feature slightly less overall gain than a standard 12AX7 tube, and will work in any circuit which calls for a 12AX7, cutting the gain a small amount in comparision, in most instances allowing for a slightly cleaner, sweeter tone to shine through. Have an older Fender, and want to be sparkly clean at loud volumes? Maybe you have a Mesa, and the overdrive is just a bit too much? Try one of these in the first preamp tube spot, and you may just fine your tone!

Featuring long grey plates and a rugged manufacturing process, these fine tubes offer rich tone without going over the top. Give one a try! Also well suited for any tube high fidelity application where a 12AX7 is called for, quieting many a hissy preamp. Also available with matched sections- please email us for details.
