Bump, This is an awesome batch, They do go quick guys, if you are wanting or thinking about upgrading your tubes in the future, these are the ticket.

1963 Amperex, which 12AX7 Bugle Boys with a different (Rogers, Electrohome) label. Relabeling was rampant in the 50's & 60's!!


These blow away anything new and are in the top 3 vintage 12AX7's imo and many others. $20 bucks a tube for high testing, no microphonic 12AX7 tone machines.

I have these exact tubes. I was lucky enough to purchase them new in their original green and yellow Rogers boxes from an antique radio dealer near Goderich, Ontario.

They've been in my VOX Night Train for nearly four years and now sit in the V1 and V2 of my new Orange Rocker 15 Terror. I recently tested them with an Orange tester and they still test a medium-high 'Good". Same with my amp tech's vintage tester. I'll get many more years out of them.

Not Olny Bugle boy relabels,these will last the lifetime of your amp. Refund if not totally satisfied. I tested them in my Mesa Mark 5-25 and whoa, thought about not selling them, but I can't not use my 1954 El84 ELiptical getter, original el84's ever made.

7189 (EL84/6bq5) still available, 10,000 hours lifetime, compared to EL84 500 hours, these are industrial ruggedized 6BQ5.EL84. Unreal tubes.
