# Diodes & Rectifiers

Diode - 1N34A Germanium, low leakage
The 1N34A Germanium diode is an old standby in electronics. Widely used for detecting the rectifying efficiency or for switching on a radio, TV or stereo etc.
$1.95 Diode - small signal fast switching, 1N4148A A semiconductor device which passes current in the forward direction(from anode to cathode), and blocks current in the opposite direction. For extreme fast switches.$0.20
Diode - 1N914, Small Signal
The 1N914 is a small signal diode similar to the 1N4148 and is common in many older electronics. The 1N914 is general purpose and can be used in a multitude of different applications.
$0.18 Diode - 1N60, Germanium, DO-7 1N60 point-contact germanium diodes in a DO-7 package. 1N60 diodes were used in many vintage electronics and also make for great clipping diodes in stompbox effects pedals.$2.25
Transistor - 2N5135, Silicon, TO-105 case, NPN
The 2N5135 is a silicon NPN transistor in a TO-105 case. This transistor is a close match to the rare 2N5133 but with higher voltage ratings and is in a larger package. The hFE range is less wide than the 2N5133 with more values in the range found in the batches used on vintage Big Muff pedals. The lower hFE range also makes these a great option for silicon fuzz pedals.
$1.75 Diode - 1N270, Germanium, DO-7 1N60 point-contact germanium diodes in a DO-7 package. 1N60 diodes were used in many vintage electronics and also make for great clipping diodes in stompbox effects pedals. The MXR® Distortion+ uses the 1N270$1.89
