Perfect replacement!
JollyRoger, 22.02.2014
I replaced the original powertube of my Blackstar HT1RH with the TAD RT005 and I was surprised by the result!
The amp sounds bigger at bedroomlevel.

It has warm and bright sound and very low noise.

I recommend this tube to all HT1 users, to get an warm, bright and creamy sound!

Much quieter (volume drop) than other TAD preamp tubes. Low gain; definitely not for anything that requires more gain than Beatles.
Good for cleans.

I'd choose this tube again
wgen, 10.11.2016
I bought this preamp tube when I had to re-tube my amp, and luckily enough, I chose a series of TAD tubes. I have this 12AU7 tube in the preamp, together with other 12AX7 type of tubes, and all of these are working just fine since many years. You really shoudn't take this for granted nowadays! Just make a quick search on the web for how bad many actual tubes are made, these days, and you'll see. So far, this one seems good enough

TAD stands for quality!

A very low gain but very smooth tube. I experimented with the AU7 in the V1 and V3 positions of a Hot Rod Deluxe. Some interesting results to be had, but if you're looking for bite, look elsewhere. A versatile tube but for low gain applications.
