it's probably just a myth anyway

but to the FF clone, and alternative transistors
I have noticed one suggesting BD139 is good, or BD140

Was actually going for the Rangemaster rather than the Fuzz Face. I got as far as the mocking up a pedal with some crocodile clips (before I decided to try to test it again more accurately). It sounded great when playing. I was getting a lot of noise when playing through my mocked up rig (the crocodile clips seemed to be responsible for a lot of noise, I have no idea why) and more so with the transistor, so I'm not sure if it was noisy or just boosting the noise from elsewhere. I have tried a few NOS Newmarket CV 8315s since, which do not sound anywhere near as good to me. Any recommendations for good rangemaster germaniums?

dont know
other than maybe take inspiration from the axis face I mentioned

btw, I think the clips introduce noise partly because they are a somewhat loose grip
and the long wires for connecting, etc
might be its enough to drive a device to its limit and destroy it

I did wonder if that might be it. Could it be anything to do with sending the signal through a chunk of iron?

It seemed to be the attempted forward current measurement through the base resistor that killed it. I should read up on how the multimeters measure this but I'm guessing it may have been forcing current through the base that didn't want to be going through there

Muchas gracias

Nick
