What was once considered revolutionary in the general electronics industry of yesteryear, is now,laughably, obsolete for today’s cutting edge tech. Let’s be grateful that your smartphone or tracking device, doesn’t rely on germanium transistors and that they can continue life, with their sole duty, of powering guitar player’s little boxes of sonic joys.
Tone as old as time…there is just something more pure about the way things were done in the past. Less polished, less predictable…not ultra perfect 4000 high def. If you like your sound a little on the raw side, with smoother top end and tube-amp like harmonics + exceptional guitar volume control “clean-up”, try adding some germanium colour to your signal chain.
Limited, small batch runs, due to the time consuming gamble of finding suitable in-spec Germanium transistors. We are addicted to finding that “top 10” transistors out of a bag of 1000!!!
