Excellent medium gain tube
GPGP, 01.02.2020
This is an excellent medium gain (60) tube that I'm currently using in both V1 and V3 in my Hot Rod Deluxe. For my use, it has the perfect amount of gain to tame the OD channel a bit, reduced that fizz but still be able to provide the juice when cranked. Highly recommended.

12at7 for reverb position
Rurouni, 15.08.2016
Bought one for my combo,specifically to replace the tube that drives the reverb unit, V3 position.

Didnt notice any change to be honest but I did try it briefly in V1 position of a bugera v22 just because I was curious.

The result wasnt what I expected since I lost almost half of my drive and even cranked the character of the Gain channel was really weird.

Does what it says
Steven8503, 22.02.2015
Well there's a huge choice of ECC81's out there but they all have different characteristics.
My vintage 68 Bandmaster needs a AT7 in the pre-amp stage and so I treated her to one of these.
Not the cheapest of the crop but I am very happy with the results.
It's quiet and appears well engineered.
Not a lot else to say but I have used TAD tubes quite a lot now and have no complaints. They are as described in the blurb.

Great tube
Token, 23.08.2019
First of all, you're always happy when a tube arrives intact. They are quite fragile. This tube is the best option for V1 in a Fender Hot Rod. It lowers the gain a bit, thus making the volume knob on your clean channel more usable.
