Yellow Jacket SOLID STATE RECTIFIER
Solid State Rectifier Replacement for 5AR4, 5U4 and 5Y3
This is a great non-destructive mod "(reversible) as the Yellow Jacket Solid State Rectifier plugs in where your current \5AR4/GZ34, 5U4, 5Y3 or similar full-wave rectifier tubes are in your amp.
The YJR converts your amp’s vacuum tube rectifier to a solid state rectifier, reducing tube sag for a tighter sound and feel.
- 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.
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. It is a good idea to use a standby switch when using vacuum tube rectification, but it is critical when using solid state rectification.
