Vacuum Tube Accessories

Socket Saver - 8-Pin, for reducing wear and tear on tube sockets
8 pin octal socket saver. Commonly used in tube testers. Socket savers absorb the main wear and tear from many tube insertions and removals. It's much easier to replace a worn out socket saver than to replace the original socket.

Keyway - Replacement piece for octal tubes
Package of 4
Do you have valuable octal type tubes that work fine except the keyway has been broken off the base? Fix it with this simple and inexpensive product. Simply clean the remainder of the broken keyway from the base and slip one of these on. Will stay on by itself, or you can use a dab of silicon to attach if you wish.

Vacuum Tube Adapter - Use 6GH8A or 6U8A instead of 7199
This adapter allows you to use 6GH8A or 6U8A tubes in place of the difficult-to-find 7199. Tubes are not included.
$12.95
Socket - 8 Pin Octal, Relay, terminal strips
Great for experimenting! Use anywhere you would use a normal octal tube socket, but use screw terminal strips to attach wiring. No need to mount socket and solder leads.

Solid State Rectifier - Yellow Jacket® 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.

Tube Converter - Yellow Jacket® YJC, for cathode-biased tubes
The YJC is a specialized, current-limiting/voltage-conditioning adapter for use in most 20 to 100 watt amps that use 6L6, EL34, 6550 or 6V6 output tubes. The YJC is for use in amps with cathode-biased power tubes.
$29.95
Tube Converter - Yellow Jacket® YJ20, for low-power amps
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.
$29.95
Tube Converter - Yellow Jacket® YJUni, for low-power amps
The YJUni is a simple pin-converting adapter for use in most amps with 6V6 or similar based tubes like 6F6, 6G6, 6K6, 6Y6, etc. The YJUni is shorter than standard Yellow Jacket® converters. It is designed for use in lower power output amps (20 watts or less) when no power reduction is desired.
$29.95
Tube Converter - Yellow Jacket® YJS, for fixed-biased tubes
The YJS is a specialized, current-limiting/voltage-conditioning adapter for use in most 20 to 100 watt amps that use 6L6, EL34, 6550 or 6V6 output tubes. The YJS is for amps with fixed bias power tubes. (Fixed bias tubes have their cathode connected directly to ground and a negative DC voltage applied to their control grid).
$29.95
Tube Converter - Yellow Jacket® YJShort, for reduced-size amps
The YJShort is shorter than the standard YJS converter, allowing for use in amps that do not have room for the standard converters. It is a specialized, current-limiting/voltage-conditioning adapter for use in most 20 to 100 watt amps which use 6L6, EL34, 6550 or 6V6 output tubes
