RE: 12AT7-tubes for Preamp and Poweramp :JJ vs Telefunken NOS

I've have never tried the Gold Lion 12ax7 but I have used a number of their other tubes. So far ALL have been excellent. The smaller preamp type tubes do have that warm full bodied, and may had a little richness and texture, feel to the sound.

I was quite shocked to hear their 12Ax7 actually sound better (full bodied, warm and good bass) then my highly coveted RCA long black plates that now sit in a box.

I would like to add this. I'm finding the GL, in general seems to be a more balanced tube. Meaning good bass, good treble, good midrange, etc...Nothing out of proportion.

what gear are you talking about. Because some times that IS an issue?
