Yes Dear Nigel we Don't !We don't.
1. Or else ther would be atleast one Germanium Transistor Amplifier for us not just for Musicians.
2.But I somehow Loved the Germanium Transistors PP Circuit Amplifier Sound very much !
Yes !that web page made very little sense - basically it said what we all know.
1.The below content caught my attention in that webpage Dear Nigel.it's become quite fashionable among some musicians to use old style germanium based distortion pedals.
2. I believe ther is only one Distortion which is pleasing to our ears & that is 2nd/Even order Harmonic Distortion but this particular distortion has nothing to do with the type/kind of Transistor used. Infact it's a Trait of Single-Ended Circuit Topology but I could be wrong also."Silicon transistors tend to sound more like old tube amps being pushed hard. In contrast, germanium transistors produce a warmer, smoother, more-ear pleasing distortion. Germanium transistors also seem to react well to changes in volume and can detect small changes in signals - hence the electronics are more sensitive."
3.The Graceful clipping characteristic of Vacuum Tubes in Germanium Transistors isn't fashionable for Musicians, infact ther is a similar gain device's Amplifiers available now (Maxonic SD-011/013, First-Watts's SIT-1/2/3, Digital Do-Main (Yamaha B1), FAL SIT-7K/5K) with tube like clipping characteristic for Audiophiles, not for Musicians though !
Thanks Dear Nigel,
for correcting & Facts !
& Thanks to All the Dear fellow Fm's who would be informing Mr.Fezder about me and my requirement of his Linear PSU's PD1515 Transistors.
