How to wire a 4pin base to 5 pin top tube socket adapter


2016-06-08 3:08 pm

I have a JE Labs 45/2a3 amp. I just purchased the 4pin to 5pin tube socket adapter as I would like to substitute the 46 tube in for 45s. Unfortunately I am unsure how to specifically wire the top 5 pin piece to the bottom 4 pin piece to complete the adapter. Wondering if anyone can supply some guidance? I know how to solder but do not know how to read a schematic etc....perhaps I am over my head. If anyone can break it down into baby steps that would be great.
