mje15034/5

Most amplifiers don't need and can't use the 4A dc current rating. So it has plenty current capability for driver duty. It's faster and higher gain.
Does it have lower Cob? I can't remember and have never measured them.

I think D44/45 also for booster duty . BD 139/140 MJE 340/350 . Some don't like the latter . I have had good results and often need 250 V + .

Fankly Andrew, I don't see from the data sheets just how is '34 "better", "faster", etc than the '30, except by the fact that it has a higher voltage rating?

Both have voltage ratings far in excess of what is required for a line amp transistor.

Or, you can use the concotion service gents use. It only assumes the pot is not encapsulated, but then, if it is, nothing will work.

You need one empty little bottle for eye or nose drops, one with which you can drop only one drop somewhere. Open it up, wash it with water and let it dry.

Buy some vaseline in your local drug store and some medicinal alcohol. Put some vaseline, about your small finger half nail amount, into the bottle you washed. Put in about an equal amount of medicinal alcohol, Close and shake for about 10 minutes or so. The result will be a goo which just a bit more liquid than jelly.

Turn pot to one side and drop just one drop, let it find its way in. Then turn the pot to the maximum opposite position and drop in another single drop. Move the pot slowly from one extreme to the next for about a minute. Pause for a minute, then repeat the moving for another minute.

I guarantee that pot will not do anything it's not supposed to do for the next 3 years at least.

NOTE: Under no circumstances use gasolime and/or petrol instead of the medicinal alcohol, beuase they have a high content of oil which you definitely do NOT want.

servisol,

SERVISOL SUPER 10 SWITCH AND CONTACT CLEANER - FREE P&P | eBay

As usual use at your own risk..however I have had great results..

If you want to kill your pot use WD40...its almost guaranteed to make it as unusable as possible...(Dirt Magnet)

I have even seen people drill a small hole 1mm in an encapsulated pot and use servisol...Why..because if its coming out then there is nothing to lose..guess what it worked..


Regards
M. Gregg

WD 40 is very good for Quad 33 switches . Jeff Popple of Quad recommended it . He said they started using it by accident when no switch cleaner was available . I used it on my 33 many years ago and it has been trouble free ever since . I do suspect it is superior for that , Jeff thought so .

Happy New Year when it comes . Took my friend out to lunch on the 20 th , wanted to be certain it was before the end of the world . Fox Inn Ardley Oxon . Time Warp on steroids .
