    I found 3 Sylvania 5751 pre-amp tubes in my closet while cleaning and I'm wondering if someone could tell me what they might sell for each. They are NOS and I have never used them. The lettering on the tube reads JHS 5751WA, Made in USA, Sylvania. I have no use for them but if someone could give me an unbiased ( sorry ) opinion I would appreciate it.

    The 5751 has a gain of about 30% less than a 12AX7. Substituting this tube in place of a 12AX7 can give you a little more clean headroom. It's a good quality tube.

    Thanks for the replys. Are these tubes fairly common?

    The big tube sellers all have them. They aren't rare if that is what you are asking. Like any NOS tube, they in limited supply.
