Using in non metal amp

I bought this for my crate 80dsp, it's tubes in the preamp and solid state power section. It takes two 12au7's and one 12ax7, so it is a pretty clean amp. I'm after that tube breakup sound at lower gain and volumes and this thing delivers. With the amps gain on 3 it's ever so slightly starting to drive, turn it to 6 and it's beautiful sweet overdriven sounds, dime it and you have wonderful distortion... ALL IN THE CLEAN CHANNEL. it gets rid of a decent amount of headroom, but I have a fender if I want squeaky clean. Buy these tubes for high quality tone and breakup

Great buy

I got these to replace the ones in my Marshall JCM 2000 tsl. What a difference this thing sounds amazing!!!!! If you are looking to get metal tones like Pantera metallica Megadeth or slayer this is your preamp tube!!!!! I cannot say enough good things about this tube. It's has a very tight sound. I'm in A touring metal band and everybody has commented on the sound of my amp since I put these in. If you like metal, you will love this tube!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mesa 12AX7

I like the direct swap, I tried some JJ EC803 one time, wasn't digging it, so went with these, great sound for my 5:50

Great preamp tube!

I got one of these to replace the preamp tube in my Marshall Valvestate VS65R. It really made a world of difference. My clean channel sounds fuller and my overdrive has a noticeable increase in gain. I'm very impressed and will not think twice to buy these again.

mesa ecc83 v2 and v3 peavey xxx combo

I use this tube in my peavey xxx 60 watt combo. After $500 in tubes and testing. I use the JJ ecc83s in V1.mesa ecc83 in V2 and V3.and JJ ecc83s matched and balanced in phase invertor v4.And she provides warm distortion.I can dial in a nice rock n roll.and heavy overdrive. and the clean channel is superior. used with Ibanez tube screamer. That's my perfect match. power tubes jj kt 77. and I will switch sometimes using mesa 6l6gc power tubes.
