Yellow Jacket Tube Converters put EL84s in your Twin
Always wondered what your Deluxe Reverb, Twin or Princeton Reverb would sound like with EL-84 Tubes? Well, you’re not alone. But you don’t want to mess with your vintage (or otherwise) amp’s components. Enter Yellow Jacket’s “Tube Converters”. These things do just what you’d expect. They convert your existing tube sockets on your amp to use different power tubes than what nature and your manufacturer intended.
Yellow Jackets® tube converters allow EL84 power tubes to be used in place of the most common guitar amp power tubes including 6L6, EL34, 6V6, 7027, 6550 and 7591. Most Yellow Jackets®provide a substantial output power reduction and a “self-bias” Class A configuration for the EL84 so that no bias adjustment is required. Yellow Jackets®are like getting a whole new amp.
Why would I want to convert to EL84′s using Yellow Jackets?
Every power tube type offers a different characteristic sound and feel. EL84′s have a very tight and focused sound which has become world renown by their use in the British VOX™ AC30 guitar amplifiers. Additionally, most Yellow Jackets® converters will produce a substantial maximum power reduction (50% to 90%) making it easier to find that sweet, warm mix of preamp and power amp distortion at a lower volume.
Yellow Jackets also convert the power tube bias to “self-bias” Class A so that no bias adjustment is necessary. You can switch back and forth between EL84′s and your amplifier’s original power tubes without rebiasing.
