Pure Solidity
EdvdB 03.06.2020
I've bought this one for my good old Marshall Valvestate VS100. As it's a hybrid amp, it only has one tube and uses the tube only for the pre-amp section. The power-amp section is solid state.
Valvestates are not tube amps so, if you're a purist, a traditional tube amp lover (and solid state amp hater) you're going to be offended now, because I've never been able to here the difference between tubes that well. A tube is a tube, they're mostly all made in the same factory, same tube, only different label (and price). The difference between an old and a new tube, yes, that's clear, but you're final sound depends on way more things than your tubes. First your guitar, than your speakers, your cables, your pedals and most of all: your fingers. So, to me, a tube doesn't need to be "top-of-the-pop". It just needs to work and this tube is quietly (as far as you can call a Marshall quiet) doing it's job perfectly. I don't use overdrive or distortion pedals, all the boost and distortion comes from the amp (read: the pre-amp = this little tube) itself and, man, it gets loud!
So, if your looking for a reasonable priced, solid tube as a replacement for your old 12AX7, this is the one. Pure solidity.

Je viens d'installer cette lampe sur une tête Blackheart Little Giant (5W), en combinaison avec une lampe de puissance TAD RT871 EL84 STR.

Contexte : EN presque 10 ans, je n'avais jamais remplacé les lampes de ma tête d'ampli. Pendant longtemps, cela ne m'avait pas semblé nécessaire et les lampes d'origine faisaient leur boulot. Mais ces derniers mois, j'avais l'impression que mon son connaissait des baisses d'intensités... jusqu'à ce que des bruits parasites soient clairement audibles et un souffle permanent. (Sans être une spécialiste, j'ai remarqué que la lampe rougeoyait fort alors que je ne la solicitait pas. Je présume qu'il y a d'autres signes qui indiquent que les lampes sont usagées). Je me suis donc décidé à les changer... et j'ai bien eu raison.

J'ai instantanément récupéré un son clair, net, dynamique, assez fidèle au souvenir lointain et aux sensations premières que j'avais eu avec cette petite tête. Quel plaisir retrouvé !

Le son ne me parait pas particulièrement coloré, on a un grain typique qui se situe entre un son tyVOX/Marshall sur ma tête. Le duo qu'elle forme avec la lampe de puissance de la même marque, me semble parfaitement complémentaire.

Evidemment, avec cette lampe neuve, plus de souffle intempestif ni de bruits parasites lorsque je branche ma guitare en direct... (et s'il en vient, je sais que cela vient de mon pedalboard).

Bref, j'ai retenu la leçon, lorsque mes lampes montreront un signe de faiblesse, je n'hésiterai pas en les changer plus rapidement (la manoeuvre était assez simple)... et je choisirai très certainement ce modèle-ci, dont je suis tout à fait content.

Well that is a change for the better

Just wanted to give my old Valvestate 40W a new tube, old one was still the original with the plastic dip on it (why Marshall why....)
The sound became less harsh and warmer. Less distortion/OD than the original but I don't need as much, just a great vintage sound ..Happy I bought it

Does the trick

I needed some vales to ressurect a vintage Marshall that had been sitting around for ages. These sound just fine. The bite and tone is great again, maybe not quite as fullfilling as the old Sovteks that were in it beforehand (when in thier prime at least anyway), but meanwhile I can easily eq the sound to preference.

Will probably change around the V1 with something else at some point, but it's great to have the old beast back in action.
