I hear that using this instead of a tube will give me less sag?
Asked by Anonymous on October 14th, 2016.
Using a solid state rectifier will stiffen up your power supply a bit and reduce sag.
This have more tube pins than my rectifier tube. Will this work?
Asked by Anonymous on October 21st, 2016.
As long as you are replacing a 5AR4/GZ34, 5U4 or 5Y3 rectifier tube then this will work. It may have more pins that your tube but the extra pins are not connected to anything.
What is the difference between this one and the other one offered on this website? (https://www.tubesandmore.com/products/solid-state-rectifier-5ar4-5u4-5y3-tubes)

These are the same thing but made but two different manufacturers.
will this replace a 5 pin 84 tube?
Asked by Anonymous on January 7th, 2018.
Unfortunately, this is not an acceptable replacement for a 84 tube.
Does the silicon replacement provide "Plate Resistance" to limit the inrush current to the power transformer, when the rectifier initially charges the filter caps?

Can this be used on a amp with a standby switch? Vox A30CC2

This is a solid state replacement for a tube rectifier and can be used in amps with a standby switch
Do I need a standby switch when using this in a 57 Champ clone?

A standby switch can be useful but it is not required.
Will I need to have a standby installed on my supro thunderbolt and will it need to be rebiased? Thank you.
Asked by Anonymous on June 24th, 2021.
This is not recommended for amplifiers without a standby switch. The rectifier tube or any replacements will not have any bearing on the bias settings.
