Cool Article on Picking and Testing Germanium Transistors!

Turns out I got a pair of germaniums that work for a lower gain vintage AC 128 Fuzzface!

72 for q1 and 96 for q2!  I lucked out!  The higher gain ones were too leaky on the q2’s from two kits!  Those must be rarer.  They both claimed to be 100 to 130 hfe. Its ok though, because I bought analogman type pedals for the higher Jimi like gains!  I suppose these may be a little more bluesy?
