Groove Tubes GT 12AX7C Mellow Preamp Tubes
The Groove Tubes GT 12AX7C is "one tube you should never be out of". It's one of the best selling preamp tubes for Marshall and Fender amps. Its sweet mid-range tone complements the natural accent tones of Marshall amps. It also takes some of the "edge" off high gain amplifiers, by cutting back on the brightness but still retaining the power gain and articulation.

It has a much mellower tone than most, with warm mid range tone that works well in Marshall and Fender amplifiers. This tube takes some of the edge off high gain amps by reducing the brightness, while still having plenty of gain and articulation.
