YJC Product Image

The YJC is similar to the YJS, but for use in amps with cathode-biased power tubes. Cathode-biased power tubes have a bias resistor connected from their cathode to ground. The ground wire of the YJC is used to bypass the amp’s cathode bias components so the Yellow Jacket® converter’s internal bias components are used instead. All Yellow Jackets® converters come with JJ Brand EL84/6BQ5 vacuum tubes.

  • Converts most audio amplifiers with 6L6s, EL34s, 6550s or 6V6s to EL84s without modification or rebiasing.
  • One year warranty for manufacturer defects
  • Safe for all common amplifiers and transformers.
  • Connects to chassis-ground for cathode-biased amps.

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.
