YJShort - Standard Duet Class-A Tube Convertor

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. All Yellow Jackets converters come with JJ Brand EL84/6BQ5 vacuum tubes.

Yellow Jackets are specialized adapters which permit the use of EL84/6BQ5 power tubes in place of 6V6, 6L6, EL34, 7027, 6550 (under 520 volts), and 7591 types. They will work in any amplifier that takes these tube types, as long as the plate voltage is under 520 VDC. This accounts for over 98% of the tube guitar amplifiers on market. (They also work in tube Hi-Fi equipment!) Because the Yellow Jackets ignore the amplifier’s grid bias voltage, it is possible to take them in an out at will to adjust your power level and sound for the individual gig or session.


Class-A With Any Amp!

Yellow Jacket Converters not only rearrange the pin locations of the 9-pin EL84 tube bases to permit them to work in 8-pin sockets, but also perform a number of essential electronic functions that permit the EL84s to function well and sound great in your amplifier. These functions include: 1) Reducing the voltage on the plates of the tubes, 2) Reducing the voltage and limiting the current on the screens of the tubes, 3) Blocking the amplifi er’s DC bias voltage from reaching the control grids of the EL84s, 4) Giving the control grids of the EL84s their own ground reference resistor for gain control, 5) Giving the EL84 its own cathode-bias (selfbias) circuit to enable it to run safely and squarely in the Class-A range.

In Champ and Deluxe type amplifi ers, the Yellow Jackets output is smooth, strong and more even than with the stock 6V6s. When the Yellow Jacket Converters are installed in larger two-tube amplifi ers intended for 6L6, 6550, 7027, or EL34 output tubes, the output power drops to about 15 to 20 watts and the amplifi er takes on more of the character of an old Vox AC30.
