Yellow Jackets Announce NOS Tube Converter

The NOS converter is a limited-edition converter made for use with amps that use 6L6, EL34, 7027, or 6V6 output tubes.

Tempe, AZ (July 8, 2014) -- The new Yellow Jackets NOS (New Old Stock) Tube Converter is a limited edition converter made for use in most amplifiers under 100 watts and using 6L6, EL34, 7027, or 6V6 output tubes. The converter lowers the overall power in your amplifier and gives your amp a unique vintage tone.

This NOS Yellow Jacket is designed with an NOS 6AQ5 seven-pin miniature beam power tube, which is included with the converter. The 6AQ5 was used in many vintage practice guitar amps in the 1950s as well as many film projectors in the past. This tube is popular with DIY amp builders who often convert old film projectors into guitar amps. While electronically equivalent to the 6V6 with a slightly lower power rating, the 6AQ5 has its own unique vintage tone that sets it apart from its eight-pin big brother. As with all Yellow Jackets the 6AQ5 Yellow Jacket converter will operate in a Class-A self-adjusting cathode-bias circuit.

All Yellow Jackets Tube Converters are handmade in the USA. Yellow Jackets are well respected, known for their high quality and ability to change the tone of your amplifier without the need of a technician. They are the converters that musicians love.

Hawaiian koa has been a favorite of boutique acoustic builders for ages. It has a cool tone personality, somewhere between rosewood and mahogany. It can be used for both back and sides and for top wood, and it’s beautiful. It’s also pretty expensive. The good news is that Taylor’s new 724ce is built with a breed of Koa that actually helps players save a few bucks.
