Many people ask us how each transistor differs in tone. Everyone’s ears are different but here is our small guide
OC75: Bright and high gain, snappy in tone, sounds raspy in a 3 transistor circuit such as the MKI.5
OC81D: Smooth gain lots of saturation
2G381: This is what gives the MKI its sag when you bend a note. They are key to the MKIs Tone.
OC44: Bright and Driven Tone
OC71: More Shrill and Glassy then an OC44
ACY41: Bright, Raspy, and in your face (ideal for fuzz)
2n4061: Silicon-based, used in the Shatterbox for crazy amounts of thick fuzz
