    GE 12AY7 Grey Plates


    Notify me when this product is available:

    Introducing the GE 12AY7 Grey Plate, a vacuum tube with a sound quality that will make your audio truly shine! While similar to its cousin, the Black Plate GE 6072/12AY7, the grey plate variation offers a unique sound and comes at a more affordable price point.

    What sets the grey plates apart from the black plates is their construction. The grey plates have a different internal structure and materials, resulting in a slightly brighter sound with more emphasis on the midrange frequencies. This makes them perfect for guitarists looking to cut through the mix or for those who prefer a more defined sound in their recordings. Compared to any modern tube, the GE 12AY7 is warmer, richer and deeper.

    Don't let the lower price point fool you; the grey plates are built to last just like the black plates. They are sturdy, reliable, and made to withstand the rigors of both studio and live performance. Plus, they have a low noise floor, allowing you to capture or enjoy your audio with greater clarity and detail.

    If you're looking for a tube that offers a unique sound without breaking the bank, the GE 12AY7 grey plates are the perfect choice. Whether you're a musician, recording engineer, or audiophile, you won't be disappointed with the quality and value these tubes provide. So why wait? Order yours today and experience the magic of the grey plates!

    Box Plates: older version of the grey plate, louder noise floor, warmer than the standard grey plate, good for guitar amps

    Standard Grey Plate: lower noise floor, more reliable construction, great for guitar, hifi, and microphones/recording gear. 

    Black Box Plate: old rare tube, very warm and rich, noise floor is highest amongst all GE 12AY7 types, good for guitar amps, found stock in 1950's Fender amps at times.
