All About Germanium Transistors. By Dave Hunter Mad

If you’re looking for classic fuzz tone, nine fuzz freaks out of ten will tell you it has got to be germanium. Not only is the germanium transistor viewed as the warm, furry beating heart of myriad ’60s fuzzboxes and booster pedals, it’s also considered a must-have ingredient in countless high-end recreations of these aural delights.

Germanium and Silicon in Fuzz – What’s the Difference ...

2018-7-27  The Germanium Transistor. The germanium transistor was the first to be mass-produced and made commercially available to the public. This transistor was used extensively in radio technology, helping to create the first portable AM radios, as well as the first car radios. It was even used in a few of the first guitar effect pedals in the 1960s.

Fuzz

Classic germanium circuit with a pair of PNP transistors, producing warm and smooth fuzz with lots of rich harmonics. In addition to the usual level and fuzz controls, the MKII also feature a contour control, adding a bit of mid boost, and an input/bias control, adjusting the amount of gain produced.

CC Hybrid2 - Foxrox Electronics

2021-11-9  CC Hybrid2 is based on the classic Fuzz Face circuit, originally available in two versions using germanium or silicon transistors. CC Hybrid2 uses one of each, combining the warm, dark organic tone of germanium with the clarity and sustain of silicon. The Si/Ge transistor pair is selected by ear and biased to deliver a tone with all the best qualities of Germanium and Silicon.

2021-11-1  The classic Fuzz Face sound relies on temperamental germanium transistors, and the various types used on the original units have played a part in the mythos and cork-sniffing that has followed. The original Arbiter London models are said to have used AC128s, while most of the germanium-era devices that followed used NKT275s.

Germanium Fuzz — BENSON AMPS

The low input impedance of the classic two transistor germanium fuzz circuit is both a blessing and a curse.a blessing because it can yield a tight sparkly clean tone when guitar volume is rolled down, and a curse because it sounds nasty (in a bad way) if there are buffers or pedals before it in a signal chain.
