      as cheap and long-lived as preamp tubes are, I don't see the market for them at this price.

        Once they start to sell singles, I will buy one to try. At the VERY least, they would be a great replacement in emergency situations and they're much less fragile so I can keep a couple in my gig bag without worrying about breaking them etc.

        If they sound like real tubes, I would probably replace at least the PI with one.

          Just curious, why the p.i? I would think the input and p.i would be the last 2 I would replace with these.. That is assuming there is some difference in tone.. JusT physics doesn't allow me to believe these are identical to tubes in tone...

          But I see no reason why I wouldn't try them..
          Hell, maybe I would like the tone better, and in that case these would make a great input stage tube, due to the lack of microphonics and noise.

          -Dimarzio Paf 7-$45 or trade for a Duncan custom 7

          -Mick Thomson Blackouts set- $110 or $100 for just pickups, no pots/harnesses

          emg 81 or 85. $50. I'm keeping one, so whichever one sells first..

          -Ibanez Ts9- like new $60

          -Modded ProCo Rat (pm for info) $70

          pm for pics


          Good transactions with- too many.

              In my experience, PI tubes are the ones that tend to go microphonic more often. So having a bullet-proof "tube" there would definitely be a good thing.

                    With the exception of the SS tube in the PI slot shorting and ****************ing the outputs.

                    Tubes generally weaken or open, not as common to short. SS components short with any over current which more than typically ends in catastrophic failures.

                    My bud had a set of SS tubes made and introduced about 5 years ago (company NLIB). One shorted and blew the **************** out of a lot of things in his amp. Screen and Plate resistors, PS parts, and other things. One huge reason they never gained popularity.

                    Maybe they can try again for preamp tubes, but I wouldn't be too sure about output tubes ss replacements again.

                      Looks wise they'd be fine if you have a closed front head. But with anything with a grill (SLO, ect...) it looks like a glowing dildo. Whether that's a bad thing or not is a tough call

                        I've had micro phonic v1 and v2 12ax7s work fine in the PI slot. Interesting some of you having them be noisy in the PI although they can in any slot. I've gotten more mileage out of some of my 12ax7s that were noisy in other slots and using them as a phase inverter.

                            Looks like a great way to add more solid state goodness to your old fashioned tube amp.

                              Looks like a good V2/V3 filler tube.
                              I don't think I could ever put one in V1 or the PI unless they really, actually, for real sound THAT good (which I SERIOUSLY doubt)
