Jet City Amplification RetroValve Amber Standard Gain

Jet City Amplification RetroValve Amber Standard Gain

Jet City Amplification RetroValve Amber Standard Gain, Retro Valves are a 100% analog replacement for vacuum tubes that offer a particularly warm, fat and punchy sound. Amber RetroValves are nominally the same gain as a standard 12AX7 and perform as you would expect a 12AX7 would. Pin-for-pin compatible with 12AX7 tubes in almost every guitar amp. RetroValves are very low noise and have no potential for the microphonics sometimes characteristic of vacuum tubes and because RetroValves operate with much less heat and consume less power, they reduce stress on the amplifier's electronics. Retro Valves can be used in addition to instead of vacuum tubes in any combination. Retro Valves are only suitable for guitar amplifiers, 1 pcs

Vorstufenröhren der Superlative!

Total

Christoph926, 04.09.2015
Habe schon seit langem nach einem langlebigen Ersatz für die Vorstufenröhren meiner 3 Röhrenverstärker ( Palmer FAT 50, Vox AC 30, Fender Bassmann 59) gesucht.
Gebe zu, dass ich anfangs sehr misstrauisch war. Im Internet war von manchen User zu lesen, dass diese Retro Valves etwas steril bzw. etwas härter klingen würden.

Nach ausführlichen Tests in allen 3 Verstärkern kann ich aber Entwarnung geben:

Diese Vorstufenröhren klingen phantastisch und sind ein würdiger Ersatz für die Glasröhren! ( Tatsächlich rauschen sie auch weniger!)

Keine Spur von Härte!

Haltbarkeit über Jahrzehnte wird zugesichert!

Also: Ich werde konsequent nun alle 3 Gitarrenverstärker mit diesen Retro Valves bestücken.

Ich bin auch schon gespannt, ob Jet City bald auch für die Endstufenröhren eine solche Lösung anbieten wird. ( Da wird einiges im Internet gemunkelt!)

Aus meiner Sicht: Klare Kaufempfehlung!

ERGÄNZUNG AM 13.12.2015 :Ich musste feststellen, dass die Retro Valves zwar in meinem Fender und Palmer Verstärker sehr gut funktionieren, nicht jedoch im VOX AC 30.Nach Bestellung Ende Nov.2015 wollte ich auch den AC 30 mit eigenen Retro Valves bestücken. Tatsächlich vertragen sich hier Endstufenröhren mit den Retro Valves nicht wirklich bzw.bewirken ein unschönes Verzerren schon bei Zimmerlautstärke im Cleanbereich. Auch der Lautsprecher begann bei meinem AC 30 plötzlich zu "brizzeln." Musste den AC 30 zur Reparatur bringen. Ergebnis Werkstätte in Österreich: Reines Röhrenproblem! Erst als ich wieder auf Glaskolben zur Gänze umgestellt hatte, entfaltet der AC 30 wieder seine volle Pracht! Fazit: Firma Jet City hat da offenbar doch nicht alle Verstärkermodelle ausreichend mit diesen Röhren vorher getestet bzw. ist das Produkt vermutlich nicht ganz ausgereift. Daher an alle MusikerInnen: Bitte vorerst nicht die Retro Valves am Vox AC 30 einsetzen, bevor es hier ein update gibt ! (Ich habe Musik Thomann gesondert über dieses Problem per Mail informiert)

Solider Ersatz mit ordentlichem Sound

Total
quality
OliK, 25.01.2014
Einleitung
Eine nachvollziehbare Idee von Jet City Amplification, eine Röhrenersatz in solid state nachzubauen. Die Retro Valves werden in drei unterschiedlichen Gainstufen angeboten. Normal 12AX7, Cool/blau mit schwächerem Gain, sowie einer Hot-Variante, die laut Blisterpappentext und Webseite eine Verstärkung erreicht, die sonst mit keiner erhältlichen Röhre erzielbar ist. - Na dann Mahlzeit...

Der Lieferumfang erstreckt sich auf die Blisterverpackung und die "Röhre" selbst.
Die Verarbeitung ist ok und soweit grat- und wackelfrei.

Der erste Vorteil ist natürlich, daß sie keine Vorlaufzeit benötigt und nicht warm wird. Ansonsten hat das Teil, wie ihre, glühenden Schwestern keinerlei Bedienelemente. Das Einzige korrospondierende Element ist die orange Beleuchtung als Rückmeldung, daß sie in Betrieb ist. Zugleich wohl auch Desingelement, um Röhrenglühen zu emittieren, - äh sorry imitieren. :-))

Der Sound den die RetroValve bietet ist ordentlich. Die RetroValve klingt warm und hat Punch. Ich hatte Sie auch mal in der Phasendreherposition. Das war ganz ok, aber ein solid state Verstärker hat eben keinen Sag. D.h. eine Elektronenröhre gibt sich etwas weicher im Anschlag und knickt halt musikalisch ein. (Im Idealfall)

Plus/Minus
+ Robustheit
+ Sound

Die RetroValve klingt recht warm und hat, trotz der Einstufung "12AX7 normal" doch ziemlich Dampf, ist aber auch etwas härter im "Antritt" als eine echte Röhre.
Der "solide" Röhrenersatz, ist für Leute, die normale "zeitgenössische" Röhren nutzen ok. Wer nur alte originale Blackburn Mullard ECC83 aus aus den 1950ern, Valvos, Telefunkens, oder dergleichen in seinen Amp muss dann eben solche Röhren nehmen. - Darum auch "nur" vier Sterne... ;-) Für Normalverbraucher aber eine gute Alternative.
