9-pin valve shield
Mounting base and spring-loaded cover to shield preamp valves
Use this bracket and can-type cover with the ceramic 9-pin valve sockets if you want to shield your preamp valves. They’re also a good choice if you want protection for valves that hang down when your amp chassis is mounted in a combo or Fender-style head cabinet.
Dimensions & info
The lower part of this two-part shield fits over the valve socket – using the standard 29mm (1.125 inch) spacing between mounting holes – and in place of the metal bracket that you’d normally use. You can use M2.5 or M3 hardware to fix the shield part to the chassis. The can part has a spring inside and you just use a push and twist action to secure it and the valve in place. Note: this is suitable for preamp valves only.
