    I Noticed while shopping for preamp tubes, mostly 12ax7 and 12au7's that some have a " Spiral Filament"

    Can anyone give any input on the differences between this style and the norm?
    Pros and Cons?
     
  2. Hi.

    On all these years I've been around tubes, I've been under the impression that all of the "MI" tubes we use have spiral filaments?

    Could it be possible to have a link to said ad?

    Regards
    Sam

    theres the link.. for some reason it wouldn't give me a link to the direct page i was looking at-- but its in the JJ preamp tubes section,
    I noticed it points out that some have spiral filaments and it doesn't note it for others
