Re-Issue Tung-sol 12ax7, now manufactured by Electro Harmonix at the reflector factory in Russia. The Tung-sol 12ax7 tube they produce is of high standard. With balanced triods and low microphonics makes it a good choice in all pre-amp stages including the V1 position.
We highly recommend these tubes The Ultimate 12AX7. Big, warm, and musical. High Gain, ultra-low microphonics, and superb linearity with a dynamic 3-D sound.
Good valves, great service. Review by James
The staff are helpful, they recommended these and Its cleared up the sound of my Ampeg SVT3 Pro which sounded a bit muddy before. Clean and articulate from what I've heard so far, need to gig the amp though before I can write anything more about it. Quick delivery. (Posted on 07/09/2012)

Great tubes. I put a set of these in my Vintage Modern and they sound excellent. Great service too, ordered on Sunday, arrived on Tuesday. Will use Hot Rox again. (Posted on 21/08/2012)
By far my favourite pre-amp valve Review by Joe C
Replaced the Preamp valve in my Egnater Renegade with 6 Tung Sols. Prior to that there was a combo of Groove Tubes and Marshall branded valves. The Marshall ones were especially hissy. The Tung Sols have softened the attack and the mids, and given the amp a much warmer, well rounded tone. also - much less noise, even with the gain dimed!! The amp can still bark and bite with tons of gain. It's just less abrasive in the upper-mids. Highly recommended. Also, Great service from HOTROX. The best around. From submitting the order, the valves were with me, recorded delivery, in just over 24 hours time. Unbelievable! (Posted on 20/07/2012)
The best I have heard Review by David
Having had some experience with a few brands of valves over the years I like these the best for overall balance of tone and clarity. I don't think I'll be buying anything else. (Posted on 23/06/2012)
Excellent! Review by Steve
I use these in my Engl E530 preamp, they are a vast improvement over the stock & JJs that I tried previously. The distortion is warmer, less fizzy, the bottom end tighter. The 530 gets used almost everyday in my home studio, sometimes for hours at a time and the tone from these has been consistent. (Posted on 29/05/2012)
Tungsol 12ax7 Review by Dicky
Great tube to add some bite to the vintage modern! Just what I was looking for! (Posted on 16/05/2012)
Good sound, softer attack. Review by bananafist
Bought this as recommended for replacement for stock tubes in Excelsior (which still hasn't arrived yet!) Tried out in my Lindy Fralin amp and immediate impression is warmth, clarity and maybe less agressive attack (good, IMO).
Good service and speedy delivery, can't ask for more! (Posted on 12/05/2012)

Tung-Sol tubes are great Review by Forest Tone Doctor
A great choice for all preamp positions especially the phase splitter which is the hardest working tube in the amplifier (Posted on 30/04/2012)
