thanks for the info induction.

seems my stripboard emerson paramount will be equally useless as a wah output boost, if the pcb for the SHO is too big to fit the wah ill try building a stripboard one.

I've been using 2N5088's in both my EM Drive and my Paramount. I tried an MPSA18 today, and it was gated and splatty, like some others have indicated. I tried a 2N3904 in my Paramount, and it was lower gain. I might like that in the EM drive since it has more gain due to the lack of the tone control. I have not tried it there yet. But in the Paramount, I preferred the 2N5088.

Anyone else still experimenting with different transistors?
