Revisit™ Solid-State Tube Rectifier Replacement.
Replaces 5AR4, GZ34, 5U4, 5Y3 rectifier tubes.  Use when less "sag" is desired in the power supply.  1.31"  diameter, 0.89" tall (not including pins and center post).

NOTE! Because there is no warm up of a rectifier tube when using this solid state device, it is absolutely necessary that a standby switch is used in conjunction with this device.   Do not install in an amplifier that does not have a standby switch - always use the standby switch in amps so equipped when using the 5SSR.

OCTAL TUBE KEYWAY, SET OF 2
If you have a cherished octal power tube or rectifier with a broken keyway, here is a great solution. By cleaning the remainder of the broken keyway from the tube base and properly installing this keyway replacement (a little dab of silicone sealant works great to hold it in place), your tube can safely be reinstalled into your equipment.   These great tube-savers are sold in sets of 2.   Note:  When using an adhesive to secure the keyway to the tube base, DO NOT use a water-based glue.   Silicone sealant (RTV) which is acryllic-based or butyl-based is fine.   Latex sealant or hot-glue is NOT.
