Vacuum Tubes

The first electronic amplification of sound was done with Vacuum Tubes. We have pre-amp, power and rectifier vacuum tubes among other types in New Old Stock from the golden era of American & European manufacturing as well as current production tubes from today.

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.

T-6B4G-SOVT Vacuum Tube - 6B4G, Sovtek
Sovtek 6B4G power triode tube. Made in Russia.
Sovtek is proud to announce the release of the Sovtek 6B4G vacuum tube. Unlike traditional 6B4G's, which consist of dual triodes connected in parallel inside the tube's envelope, the Sovtek 6B4G utilizes a single triode design with a Directly Heated cathode element. This updated design eliminates differential resistance loading common to other 6B4G's, yielding a much more reliable tube. In addition, the Sovtek 6B4G has a lower inter-electrode capacitance, offering a wider frequency response with high sound detail.
