The exquisite, punchy, and warm tone of vacuum tube audio is an artisanal obsession for many of the world's finest musicians and audiophiles!
The long awaited '12AX7' Vacuum Audio Tube from The Victor Company is a return to historic form for the Camden NJ based firm. Originally invented at the Victor Division Electro-Acoustic Sound Laboratories In Camden, NJ in 1946 - the 12AX7 tube would go on to change the world by becoming a hallmark of hi-fi systems, guitar and bass amplifiers, recording studio equipment, and radios around the globe.
Just about every great artist of the golden years of the recording era can thank the Victor Division's 6L6 or 12AX7 tubes for their tone - from Sgt. Pepper to Woodstock to The Tonight Show, Victor tube designs are a tonal phenomenon copied by many manufacturers over the years.
Today, we are proud to introduce the 'closest-to-original' Victor Laboratory specification tubes on the market today! Utilizing the long lost exclusive specifications of The Victor Company's 'Radio Corporation Of America®' Laboratory, Victor Tubes are the best possible representation of the original mid century masterpieces - with final assembly and testing conducted on the very same equipment that birthed the originals in Camden, NJ many decades ago.
