    I have had my WT800 for 8 years...

    How long should the 12ax7 last? Think I need to replace?

    Many thanks.

    Preamp tubes need only be changed if they start making noise (or completely die, which is rare).

    I own some tube amps that are over 30 years old that still have the original preamp tubes in them.
