Lower Gain, Maximum Headroom
The 12AU7 provides the least amount of gain amongst its siblings, the 12AX7 and the 12AT7. Because of this it is rarely used in guitar preamps and is much more commonly found in the reverb section of the amplifier. An advantage of the lower gain is an increase in headroom, leading to less distortion and making the 12AU7 an excellent tube for amplifying a headphone amp or other hi-fi audio equipment, and they resist adding distortion to an audio signal.

JJ Electronic
JJ Electronic is a world-renowned manufacturer of vacuum tubes, electrolytic capacitors and high-end audio amplifiers. Founded in 1993 by Jan Jurco, a small garage business grew to become a well known and respected in music industry. JJ vacuum tubes and capacitors are widely used in guitar and audio amplifiers, recording studio equipment and in a variety of applications for audiophiles. All vacuum tubes and capacitors go through an extended burn-in period to ensure superior stability. A rigorous final test for tubes and capacitors verifies every important parameter. In particular, the parameters for flawless tube functioning include insulation characteristics, vacuum level, cathode emission efficiency, filament voltage, plate currents, and microphonics. The quality control process includes several thousand hours of reliability testing on samples of tubes and capacitors.
