Notes for Semiconductors

The semiconductors we sell are the ones that are harder to obtain (at least in the UK). This means they would probably not be stocked by your average high street component shop e.g. germanium based diodes / transistors. Germanium semiconductors were used in the vintage effects pedals. They have a different "warmer" sound when overdriven than their more modern silicon counterparts, but are now conventionally only used in high power applications.
They are all included in one or more of the BYOC kits, and provided here as a service to those who wish to buy only the PCB's.

Please check the BYOC instruction sheets to see which components you may require.

Also, see the Useful Links page, for component suppliers

"Gain Matched" means we hand select the transistors as a matched pair taking into account the gain ratings as they are measured. We reject as sub-standard approximately one third of the germanium transistors that are supplied to us. If you have specific requirements, in this area (high gain / low gain etc) please email us with details
