I am making an Oddfellow Effects Caveman
It calls for a Schottkey Bat85 or IN60P.
What is a suitable alternative? I don't actually know what the diode does in this circuit, it is switchable but I have built it as seen here http://tagboardeffects.blogspot.com/search?q=caveman and it is not working. I used a 5818 (was all I had in Schottkey, but I guess it was a bad choice).
There are so many diodes out there, and used for different purposes - where can I read up on these and get a quick overview so I am not clueless?
