ShuGuang 12at7 Posted on April 11, 2012 by tubemaze (10 votes, average: 3.20 out of 5)Loading...Again no reviews on internet. It’s hard to find reviews for the new tubes 🙁Share this post:
I was expecting another disappointment after the previous 2 ShuGuang reviews, but it was not the case this time. Good tube overall if limited to driver stages of an amp. Sound is very similar to EH 12at7, so much so that it’s practically impossible to distinguish them. I did a blind test and my friend couldn’t figure out if I change the tubes or not. Again, over-emphasized HF, solid sound stage, great bass. This tube is very well constructed. Looks superbly solid. Metal supports, three micas.
I find this tube to be just too bright and harsh on the top. The difference is not huge, but it bugs me a lot. Amperex or Telefunken all the way!
Crap pile of a sound. Grainy, harsh with vocals that are just flat.
