Upgrade Your Tubes - VIDEO
Our favorite brown tape is back
Second Edition by Dan Erlewine
TAD's solid-state rectifier replaces 5U4G/GB, GZ34, 5AR4 and 5Y3 tube rectifiers.
I have a tweed 5E3 that was rattling in a most unmusical way, making it's way into the sound coming out of the speaker. I checked that everything was tight, and then swapped all the tubes (thinking that there might be some filament rattling going on). Finally in desperation, I swapped the 5Y3 rectifier with one of these, and two things happened. First, the rattle completely disappeared. Second, the bottom end tightened up considerably, making it possible to push the amp a little harder before it starts flubbing out in way tweeds do. Bottom line: don't hesitate to try this - it does the amp no harm, and (to my ears anyway) improves the sound!
