Good Iplate = 2.0 - 2.5ma

Good Gm = 3000-3500


(Max ratings: 300Vplate, 1.5 watts)

(Vfil=12.6V @ 300ma)

(Typical Operation Class A amp: Vplate=250V, Vgrid=-2V, Ip=2.5ma, Rp=31.8Kohms, Gm=3200, Mu=100)

(The 12BZ7 has been subbed for a 12AX7 in some circuits)

(The 12BZ7 has 2 times the Gm (3200 versus 1600) and lower plate resistance (31K versus 62K) and higher filament current (300ma versus 150ma) than a 12AX7)

(The 12BZ7 was designed primarily for use as a sync separator and sync amplifier in television receivers. It is also useful in clipping circuits and as a general purpose audio amplifer)
