    Tried them in a JTM-45 once (Not sure how close it is to the Bluesbreaker, but couldn't be that far off).

    Sounded decent, but not fantastic. The volume was cut a little, though I expected it to be even more. It will be safe to use in the Bluesbreaker, but not sure you'll love the sound?

    I've heard horror stories about yellow jackets seriously damaging amps. I'd save the trip to the amp tech and buy a decent attenuator (Hot plate or UA)

    I have used them, but you'll need to take the chassis out of the cabinet, because the tubes on the Bluesbreaker points toward the speaker grill, and there is not enough space for the yellow jackets (they are very large with the tubes in).

    Moreover, the reduction on volume is not significant. But IMO the yellow jackets on it sounded great.
