These anti-distortion anti-vibration tube dampers are made to fit Mini Tubes such as the 12AT7, 12AU7, 12AX7 & 6DJ8 size of tubes.

The Cool Damper is a radical new device for the tube accessory industry from EAT – EuroAudioTeam. This beautifully crafted audio product offers much more than simply adding a new styling twist to your valves by surrounding them in new, fashionable colors. It brings exceptional acoustic performance and function to your system by delivering sound that redefines the tube dampening category.

Carefully chosen materials allow you to use Cool Damper as a truly effective vibration-consuming damper. This results in reduced distortion from the tube circuit, as well as vastly reducing the tendency of most vacuum tubes to act in a microphonic manner. In addition, the sound from a component utilizing Cool Dampers can be heard to have more controlled and deeper bass, a cleaner sound stage, crisper and greater dynamic range, and better focus of the entire sound field.

The Cool Damper also reduces the operating temperature of the glass envelope of an electron tube by about 10 %, which of course acts to appreciably extend the lifetime of the tubes.

The Cool Damper is a result of many years of rigorous research and development. This high-fidelity, consumer-friendly product is easy to install, and fabulously simple in design. Music Hall found, from all tested materials, that the most suitable is a relatively soft aluminum extrusion coated with a special blended mix of Teflon and Carbon composite PTFE. The precise shapes of the EAT Cool Dampers are finished with long-lasting anodic oxidation colours. This makes these cooling rings an aesthetically attractive, as well as functional, accessory for your valued vacuum tube equipment.

For flexible and easily detachable contact of the aluminium body to the sometimes erratic cylindrical surfaces of various tubes, we use six special carbon-teflon composite stripes (V profile). Appropriate design and materials of the Cool Dampers compensate for the naturally resonant tendencies of both glass and aluminium, and work to transform active vibrational energy into thermal energy, which is then dissipated as heat radiation. Tube dampers in one form or another have been around for many years, but these from EAT are so much more effective than any previous efforts that they deserve to be auditioned on their own merit.

any PURE tube phono/line preamp deserves these little devils!!!ESPECIALLY such as the ARC sp10 mk2 and similar. With the ARC preamp, using them in conjunction with tubes in positions v1,v2 and v9,v10 will produce dramatic improvements in image, soundstage width and depth as well as reduced microphonics by at least 30% A MUST FOR TUBE LOVERS and a bargain at this price


This is a must have!

I have tried several dampers including some expencive Dutch ones and they are all good to prevent michrophonic problems etc., but the EAT is the only one in my ears witch actual makes it sound better. The first you notice is more dynamic, it´s bigger distance between instruments and the background is darker. The bass become deeper and more precise, it´s more "snappy", the midrange and the upper range is more airy, the cymbals sounds more natural and they plays out more lively. I am now using them in my BAT P-10SE phono stage and the Ref.3 pre amp from ARC and both products takes a step up with these dampers.
