Sovtek 12AX7LPS A superb phase splitter ECC83 12AX7 type Long Plates

Sovtek 12AX7LPS is a long plated version of the 12AX7  ECC83 and is favoured by a number of amp manufacturers for their smooth rich tone. Not recommended for the V1 position in combo amps because long plate 12AX7/ECC83S types tend to be more microphonic.

Product Description

The Sovtek 12AX7LPS  is a relatively new variant of the ECC83 type. It is quite a different construction to the other Sovtek types. It is a long plate valve.   The Sovtek 12AX7LPS  has larger plates inside and they have a very smooth tone across all frequency ranges. Just right for blues and Jazz in my mind.  many amps use this valve as the phase splitter.  it is not recommended for the V1 position in a combo amp because the longer plate designs tend to be more microphonic

The lowest microphonics valve for the V1 position is the Sovtek 12AX7WC

"I don’t think I’m the only guitarist out there who knows his/her guitars, but very little about tube amps. I ordered a Supro valve kit (which is great), but it’s the service, help & advice I received from Stewart that was outstanding. I was going to say ‘these guys’, but it didn’t seem right, as my communication was just with him. Thank you!" - Robert G.
