Someone has brought it to my attention that what I purchased were silicon diodes, not germanium - as labeled clearly on the box. Please note that any posts from me in this thread are accidentally misrepresented as results from a germanium diode, when they are in fact, from a silicon diode.



Today I whipped out the germanium diodes again. I tried them once or twice months ago, with limited to no success.

The variation in sound was caused by my hand contacting the germanium diode during the recording.


****Added 6-7-09 - While listening to this file, several years later, I hear at the end of the clip "he's stroking the pickup."
