In case some of you haven’t heard yet JJ just released in the last 2 weeks a genuine frame grid 12ax7 tube. It is a constructed clone tube of the legendary Telefunken ecc803s tube which is hailed as the best ever. I got a pair sent over from Europe and definitely some of the first production run. They are a simply great so far. IMO the best 12ax7 in the JJ line by far. None of the harshness usually associated with the JJ pre amp tubes. I’m really impressed. Just wondering if anyone else has gotten any yet in their amp and what results they are having? I know a few dealers have them in standard pin versions so far in the USA including Eurotubes. I did not want to wait for the gold pin version to be available here so I had mine shipped overseas to speed things up. It’s basically a reissue of the Tesla E83cc frame grid tube which JJ bought out years ago but this is the first real deal new production frame grid 12ax7 made in decades.
