Ah yes...I am also from the era when vacuum tubes ruled the earth! I
had 12AX7's in my Dynaco stereo 'pas 3' pre-amp and currently in
numerous tube guitar amps. 12AX7's are also known as ECC83.

Basic 12AX7 specs (not complete):

Each triode unit is independent of the other except for the common heater.
Used as Phase Inverters or twin resistance coupled amplifiers in radio
equipment. Also used in stereo and musical instrument amplifiers.
