P-YJ20 Tube Converter - Yellow Jackets®, YJ20
The YJ20 is for use in most amplifiers using 6V6 output tubes. The YJ20 is similar to the YJC but does not drop the plate and screen voltages. It is meant for use in lower power output amps (20 watts or less) when no power reduction is desired. The ground wire connects to the chassis-ground for cathode-biased amplifiers. All Yellow Jackets® converters come with JJ Brand EL84/6BQ5 vacuum tubes.
Starting at $44.95

P-YJR Solid State Rectifier - Yellow Jackets® YJR, For 5AR4, 5U4, 5Y3
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.

All Yellow Jackets® have a one year warranty against manufacturer defects.
