The tube serves as a replacement for any 7025, 12AX7WA, 12AX7WB, 12AX7LPS, 12AX7EH, ECC83 or E83CC.

Worms, Germany (January 8, 2018) -- The newest addition to Tube Amp Doctor’s well known line of high quality premium tubes will be first introduced to the American market at NAMM 2018.

Perfectly symmetrical systems will guarantee for balanced signal amplification as well as balanced current draw of both triodes. This special selection and the fact that the TAD 12AX7A-C is one of the strongest tubes around, make the TAD RT001-BPD the perfect choice for the phase inverter/driver position in any tube-driven amplifier.


For guitar amps:

  • Tight deep bass, complex lively mids and silky top end
  • Improves overall definition
  • Great sustain
  • Harmonic overdrive and maximum dynamics

For hi-fi-audio:

  • Massive soundstage improvement
  • Pleasing harmonic overtones
  • Underlines the amp's signature tone quality
  • Matching in pairs is highly recommended for hi-fi stereo amplifiers and mono block pairs

The TAD 12AX7A-C BALANCED PHASE DRIVER (RT001-BPD) can replace any 7025, 12AX7WA, 12AX7WB, 12AX7LPS, 12AX7EH, ECC83 or E83CC. Suggested retail price is $17.50 and it can be ordered directly from TAD or their US-distribution.

Kenny Greenberg with his main axe, a vintage Gretsch 6118 Double Anniversary that he found at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville for a mere $600. “It had the original pickups, but the finish had been taken off and the headstock had been repaired. So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
