7025 tubes anyone?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have been researching the 7025 tube and have been pleasantly suprised. They can be had for $5-$15 and are a direct replacement for the 12XA7 and 5751. Does anyone have any real experience with this family of tubes? I read Nicks brief note in his MG tube rollers guide. I think I'm going to buy some and see how they do in my MG-Head.

Also, what about the guitar brands...ie Groove Tube? This is the brand that fender recommends. They make el84s and I can get a matched air for $20 from my local music store.

thanks,

Well, I'll have two extras (from the auction I won) and I'll be putting them on eBay. They're NIB NOS Amperexes.

On eBay? Does this mean you didn't like 'em?

No, I haven't gotten them yet, but I only need one tube and I won 3.

I just started my search for awesome current production tubes for the MG Head. I just ordered a 7025 from triodeelectronics - it was the Philips/Sylvania ECG. I also ordered an Electro Harmonix 12AX7-EH and a Sovtek 5751 along with a backup of JJ EL84's. The packaged shipped today so I might even get them by Thursday. I'll let you know how they all compare to this GE 5751 that I have right now ASAP.

I have used a GE 7025 branded CBS in my MG Head from time to time. It performs better than a lot of the more generic 12A*7 types I have used. Not quite as good as my favorite Mullard or Amperex 12A*7 or 5751 types, but if you can get one for $5 or $10 I'd say go for it. I would like more of this type myself.

I haven't purchased a Sylvania 5751. Although I have had the option to a number of times I didn't want to pay the price. The BB can also be expensive but I find it very musical and less electronic sounding than the RCA Command 5751.

I have maybe 20-25 different pulls and NOS 12A*7 and 5751 types that I have plugged in so far and I think all of them sound better than stock. You don't have to pay big bucks to get good sound. But don't let me stop you!
