Thinking of getting a pair of Yellow Jacket converters to run in my 1993 Fender Concert Amp. I use this amp for rehearsals and 60 watts is just too much. I had a professional install a bias pot so I have some control in that regard. I have seen some clips on you tube with guys using them on other blackface models but the Concert Amp is different animal. Don't want the triode version that cuts 70-90% power. Just looking for about 50% reduction in power. Just want to turn it up enough to get that fullness in the bass response but enough headroom to run my pedals.

Will the plate voltage be too much? Am I just gonna have to change tubes more often?

I can't find anything about it about plate voltages. They just say that marshall majors, music man amps orange120 amps can't run them. I assume it should be fine. I think I will take the plunge.

You can always run it by THD to be sure.

I couldn't tell you if it's safe, but my experience with them is they don't do much at all to reduce volume. You'll get a bit earlier breakup and a slightly fuzzier distortion, but a loud amp will still be a loud amp.
