Solid State Rectifier Direct plug-in replacement for 5AR4, 5U4 and 5Y3 rectifier tubes in amplifiers with center tapped secondary power transformer.
Use when less 'sag' is desired in the power supply; just switch back to the tube rectifier when 'sag' is desired.
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 and generate an electron 'cloud' around the cathode before high voltage is applied. This will prevent 'cathode stripping' in the power tubes.
This model of Yellow Jackets® converter, the YJR, is an adapter for use in most amplifiers which use 5AR4, 5U4, or 5Y3 tubes or other similar tubes. 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, 5U4 or 5Y3 to a solid state device. ·
Safe for all common amplifiers and transformers. ·
All Yellow Jackets® have a two year warranty against manufactured defects.
