Some of you may have seen my Mini 12AX7 Shootout thread. I'm lasy and dont feel like finding it. I had reviewed the Tungsol 12AX7 reissues along with a number of other Tubes and have had some recent developments that trouble me. As you know I kinda prefered the Combo of the Tung Sol in V1 with the Sovtek LPS's in V2 and V3. I had purchased several of the Tung Sols and out of the these 3 were bad which I allready stated. Only a couple were good they sounded amasing. Much better than the EH's though the only difference between the EH and TS is the Getter. Anyways the rest of em just crapped out on me after some time with some voltage going through em. They have become extremly Microphonic and unusable. I like the way these babys sound but 100 percent failure rate is as bad as the GT M's. So far out of the new production Tubes I have the ones that have held up is the Sovtek LPS's and the JJ's. The EI's had problems, the EH's had problems,the Ruby's were OK, the Tung Sols had problems, and the GT M's had problems. HHHHHMMMMM not looking good here. The Home Team zip the away Team 11.
