Rare Transistor Setup for Fuzz Face
Q1 and Q2 are ASX12D
This great-sounding FF T-set is created using two NOS pieces of the rare and much talked-about Soviet-era ASX12D germanium PNP transistor. This transistor has gathered a reputation as a substitute for the now unavailable NKT275 and the sound will tell you why. The parts are low-leakage and relatively stable with temperature variations. There are not many NOS Eastern-Bloc germanium parts available with the characteristics needed for use in the "standard" FF circuit, but we located a limited amount. We've characterized, matched, biased and audited these T-sets to ensure that you'll get low noise and the best vintage germanium sound possible. Includes biasing resistors
Very limited quantities. We know they are expensive, but the sound is unique.
