Attack of the Germanium Transistors

A peek at what's next on the bench.

I now am the proud (?) owner of 130 germanium transistors.  I bought a bag of 30 NOS US-made transistors from Small Bear and stuck my neck out for a bag of 100 Tungsram AC128s from a vendor in Germany.

My guess is only 20-25% of the big bag will be usable in a fuzz.  But I found a cool circuit for the leaky ones, so I hope to make use of all of them.
