The 12AX7 high impedance amplifier triode was designed specifically for audio use and has a high amplification factor of 100. This is an american design that was copied by other companies. Technical Trading are a reseller.
Mullard describe the ECC83 (=12AX7) as a high μ double triode, having separate cathodes, primarily intended for use as a resistance-coupled amplifier or phase inverter.
