The Sovtek 5AR4 GZ34 Rectifier is used in famous amps such as the Vox AC 30 Valve rectifiers are characterised by the ” sag” that they introduce which is a bit like compression. The result is a better sustaining note at the same volume as an amp with solid state power supply rectification. Replacing your old 5AR4/ Gz34 with a new Sovtek 5AR4 GZ34 Rectifier does give a better sound!.
The USA equivalent part number for the Gz34 is the 5AR4. They are exactly the same valve recifirer
We also offer a 120 day from purchase warranty on the product ( excludes mechanical damage failure). we test your Sovtek 5AR4 GZ34 Rectifier on our analogue testers to ensure it is fully working before we ship to you. WE test every unit to give you the assurance of a good quality rectifier.
The Sovtek 5AR4 GZ34 Rectifier is the better alternative to replacing your old Gz34 with solid state rectifiers. Old valve rectifiers eventually loose emission and the result is higher internal impedance. It can result in a lower voltage especially on the output stage. The result is the sound is less clean at higher volumes or can result in lower output watts from your amp. We recommend changing your rectifier every couple of years. You can keep the old one as a spare for emergencies.
We test every Sovtek 5AR4 GZ34 Rectifier in house to assure you of receiving a quality product and the test results are on the valve box
Note: Valves use high voltages and these voltages are dangerous. The amp can still retain these high voltages for some time even after being switched off. If you are not sure of fitting them , please seek the services of qualified personnel
