Test Results:

This 1960s RCA 12AX7A tube has short gray plates and a halo getter. The red print on the glass has the RCA logo (partial / missing).

This tube 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. See product options for current availability.

Noise and microphonics

Tubes that test as “phono grade” are the quietest range for noise and microphonics on our custom noise testing equipment. They are an excellent choice for sensitive applications such as microphone preamps, DA converters, and phono stages.


This tube is sold individually. It ships in a new white box with test results for current draw (mA) and transconductance (Gm). Photo is a sample from the lot.
Matched pairs, when available, are listed as Item 631.
