Transistor porn (OC81Ds, OC44s, some RCAs)

Post by agoldoor »

Hey all,

It's been an incredibly long time since I've posted here, but had a friend text me to ask if I had some specific semiconductors for sale, and thought I'd take stock), so sharing some photos of them here. (And yes, I might be selling some soon)

A lonely 2G381 (MKI) -- Passed along all of the rest I had, hope they're in pedals now, had this one lingering...
Also in the photo, a bunch of OC81Ds in white jacket, metal jackets, and a few blue OC81DMs, OC81s in metal jackets and the OC81Ms in black:

NKT275 stash, pinch o' fuzz face flavor for ya:

More Mullards, the OC44s and OC75s, including those adorable yellow OC44s:

And then my beloved RCAs -- I have had this fantasy forever of building a bunch of as-part-accurate-as-possible germanium Fuzzrites, so I snapped up every 2n2613 and 2n408 I came across for a while there:

And sixty-some-odd RCA 2n270s, for a similar fantasy of either making my own Maestro FZ-1 or asking Jerms to make me a really spiffy one with the best trio of the bunch... prolly didn't need to gather up so many for one pedal, but... you guys know how collecting goes:

I sure have missed participating in the community around here, but..... life, y'all know how that goes! =)

Beautiful stuff man! Would be interesting to see the readings on those NKT-275's, it's not often you see that many in one place anymore

More Germaniums - I know this should be a separate posting (sorry, OP) but for some odd reason I am unable to do so. Will trade 50 pcs for a few STTC137 tips for my Metcal soldering iron.

Awesome collection, any chance you’re still selling any of these parts? Would love buy what you have left.
