Re: What to do with Russian low-gain MP37 Transistors?

I was just reading about the diode idea. Too bad I already boxed up a pedal with diodes. Next pedal for sure. Thanks!

I now have a ton of MP37 transistors, which were super cheap, but they seem to be too low gain for anything I've built. They just don't have much in them. What should I do with these? Trash? I can't th...

Some Tim Escobedo pedal demos

I built some of Tim's circuits with a few mods of my own. I know there aren't a ton of demos for his stuff online so I thought I'd add some I made from today.
