These are early 1960's Philips Amperex "hi fi" low noise version of the 12AX7.
All other specifications are the same as 12AX7.
Tubes marked with 12AX7 and 7025 both
These are special non-microphonic and low hum, noise version of the 12AX7
These are the Philip's Amperex made vintage 1960-64, branded Electrohome
These tubes were exclusively produced + tooled and built the exactly as Amperex Bugle Boys, being wholesaled in bulk by Philips only for the organ grade market offering "premium" version of the European (Holland) made 12AX7.

This is the "premium" version of the European 12AX7.
The "S" on the ECC803S means "select" version.
These are usually found on certain Amperex brand tubes only.
These have extra thick mica spacers and extra support rods to minimize microphonic response. Late versions produced by Philips/ECG did not perform as well as these older produced tubes did,and do!
Were not as well known as their brother Bugle Boys because they were only made for a few short years by Philips
All these Philips Amperex branded Electrohome, most are NOS,some used for 30-50 hours as burn ins.
All still test very strong like new, test results show all tubes 98% -120% on a calibrated B+K tube tester.
Sold @ $100.00 for the best cosmetic condition pairs,
or $80.00 a pair for tubes which are showing some slight amount of stamping visibly has worn over some 50+ years later since manufactured!
