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. The ground wire connects to the chassis-ground for cathode-biased amplifiers. All Yellow Jackets® converters come with JJ Brand EL84/6BQ5 vacuum tubes.

  • Converts most audio amplifiers with 6V6s and similar-based tubes to EL84s without modification or rebiasing
  • One year warranty for manufacturer defects
  • Safe for all common amplifiers and transformers.

The Yellow Jackets® pentode versions provide more bite and attitude, while the triode versions provide greater power reduction and more linearity. If you are looking for power reduction and response with more bite and attitude, choose the pentode version. If you're looking for maximum power reduction and want to tame the response of your amp, choose the triode version.
