Just as good as all the hyped up brands

Comments about Sovtek 12AX7WC Preamp Tube:

Good clean full tone without any graininess. Nice smooth and sweet highs.
N/A
So far so good!
When I put this tube in the tone and gain stage slot (v1) of my Blues Jr III Limited it immediately got rid of the slight treble harshness caused by the GT 12ax7-R that was there before. I believe GT-12ax7-R's are Sovtek 12ax7WA's, so at this point I'm liking the WC's more. The WC is supposed to be a higher gain tube than the WA but my amp sounds pretty much just as clean as it was, just minus the aforementioned slight treble harshness.
I also ended up trying a JJ ecc83 and thought that it took the amp in a noticeable step away from the Fender cleans direction.
I didn't give it a rating for this because several other websites are selling these for a different price, so I don't want to downrate the tube just because I bought it for a different price. I just didn't notice until after I ordered...

Bullet Proof !

Comments about Sovtek 12AX7WC Preamp Tube:

This tube is Bullet Proof by design just not very musical,this is what my Bass Amp came from the factory with, I waited until the warranty on the tube was over and changed it and my amp came alive, if you want to throw you equipment around in the back of the pick up truck this is the tube for you,if you want your gear to sound good look elsewhere, I guess gone are the day of people building quality componets the new production can come somewhat close but all of the new production tubes that I`ve dealt with are noisy !
