The new TAD 7025-S is a faithful reproduction of the legendary original Mullard ECC83 valve which was made in England till the late 1960s. This tube is regarded as the holy grail among the double-triode preamp valves. The extra thick mica spacers support the rugged mechanical construction and the careful TAD quality control proceedure ensures performance stability and low microphonics.
The TAD 7025S delivers rich, harmonically complex tone and midrange warmth that is just outstanding compared to any other currently manufactured tube today.
We recommend this tube for classic british style amps (rather than for modern high-gain amps) as well as for vintage-style open-back combo amps to achieve a stunning complex tone with silky smooth but rich tone.
The TAD 7025 S can replace any ECC83, E83CC, 12AX7, 12AX7A, 12AX7M, 12AX7WA/WB/WC/LPS/EH, 5751 or 7025.
Great for warm clean tones and creamy overdrive. Upgrades 12AX7A and ECC83 tubes. Replaces E83CC tubes.
somewhat warmer in tone than our 7025 Highgrade (RT010) yet open with defined bass response.
tech-tip: especcially recommended in second positions or tone stacks in vintage British amps
Along with the TAD 6L6WGC-STR (GE-Style) is this TAD 6L6GC-STR our recommendation for excellent tone and maximum lifetime among the 6L6GC type tubes.
nice and warm Review by pete24v
I wanted an old style valve to V2 in my '72 dual Showman Reverb. Hotrox advised me on this, and they were spot on. It's not quite as dark as the RCA that came out of the amp, the TAD is much clearer and is exactly what i was looking for. (Posted on 26/09/2012)
Warm and musical Review by Bowman
Not quite the same sound as the 70s Mullard I was replacing but I put this in V1 in my Ampeg Gemini and it sounds great, has it's own character, very complex, warm but still with detailed treble, felt very musical and inspiring to play on. Will definitely be using these valves more in the future (Posted on 09/08/2012)
7025s mullard style Review by Daveyboy335
put one of these in v1 position of my Carr rambler; improved tone no end; tighter bass, more clarity, less harsh highs.
I replaced all the tubes in the rambler, excellent service from Hotrox , thanks (Posted on 17/06/2012)
