Vacuum Tube - Solid State Tube Rectifier, Yellow Jackets®, YJR
The YJR is a direct plug-in replacement adapter for use in most amplifiers that use 5AR4/GZ34, 5U4, 5Y3 or similar full-wave rectifier tubes. The YJR converts your amp’s vacuum tube rectifier to a solid state rectifier, reducing tube sag for a tighter sound and feel. The tube rectifier can easily be swapped back in when sag is desired. This Yellow Jacket® is a solid state device and as such does not come with vacuum tubes.
- Converts most audio amplifiers which use a vacuum tube rectifier 5AR4/GZ34, 5U4 or 5Y3 to a solid state device.
- Safe for all common amplifiers and transformers.
Note: Because there is no warm up of a rectifier tube when using this solid state device, it is critical that a standby switch is used that will allow the power tube filaments to warm up before high voltage is applied. This will prevent 'cathode stripping' in the power tubes.
All Yellow Jackets® have a one year warranty against manufactured defects.
