I got these transistors in 2020 or 2021. I'd been searching high and low for Texas Instruments 2G381 transistors and found a company in the UK with 20 for a good price. I bought them all but they are not TI. I was unsure about them, and put them aside, but now that I'm down to my last few usable TI 381s I tried them out in the Bad Motorscooter prototype was surprised how great they sound. They aren't modern Chinese knockoffs, they are in the same package and print style as some AC151s and AC125s I have. 1970s production I think.

Obligatory random riff demo
