This 1964 Amperex Bugle Boy 12AX7 / ECC83 tube has gray plates and a halo getter (I65 series). The white label has the famous Bugle Boy logo. The Heerlen, Holland factory code is etched in the glass.

This tube tests as new. It has been screened for gas, heater-cathode leakage, shorts, and excessive noise and microphonics on each triode section. It was tested at typical operating voltages on a laboratory grade Amplitrex AT1000 (manual setting, fixed bias mode). Learn more about our testing process here.

Noise and microphonics

This tube tests as “phono grade”—
the quietest range for noise and microphonics—on our custom noise testing equipment. It is an excellent choice for sensitive applications such as microphone preamps, V1 position in guitar amps, DA converters, and phono stages.


This tube is sold individually. It ships in its original box with test results for current draw (mA) and transconductance (Gm) for each triode section.
