Ray Tubes 12AX7 SELECT Vacuum Tube

Turning Good Amps Great

The SELECT Collection isn’t just another notch on the audio quality post—it’s a whole new level. Designed for the listener who isn’t satisfied with just "good enough," these tubes turn up the dial on your audio experience from "pleasant" to "how did I live without this?"

Not All Tubes Are Created Equal

SELECT tubes come from the same stellar batches as CORE tubes but get the VIP treatment. Audio engineers handpick each one based on nothing short of audio perfection—sound profile, dynamics, the whole nine yards. 

Gold Pins: Impress Your Friends!

Gold isn’t just for show here. It enhances the sound transmission and fights off the nasty effects of oxidation. Long story short, these pins last, ensuring your sound is golden for a long time to come.

A Warranty Worth Having

A full 12-month warranty backs every SELECT tube, which is pretty bold in an industry where NOS tubes only come with a weak handshake and a "good luck.”

Product highlights

  • Rigorously hand-selected
  • Gold pins for top-notch conductivity and longevity
  • Dramatic improvement over generic tubes
  • Matched pairs or singles, because choices matter
  • Only 4% make the cut for gain and conductance

Ordinary? Never Heard of It

The Ray CORE Collection is the go-to upgrade for anyone ready to ditch the standard-issue tubes. Each one is vetted against tough standards, making sure only the best make it to your sound system.

Picked by Pros, Not Machines

Ray’s audio engineers don’t just run numbers and tests. They listen, scrutinize, and select each tube by hand. It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it—and they make sure it’s done right.

Gold Pins: It’s a Luxury That Works

Clarity, durability, and quality. Plus, it will impress your friends.

  • Low noise and microphonics, because who needs extra hiss?
  • Available in pairs or solo—dealer’s choice
