Diode question. difference between 1n34 and 1n34A ?
« on: May 25, 2004, 07:56:05 AM »

Is there a difference between these 2 diodes. The 1n34A is needed in the Fuzz Central version of the Dallas Rangemaster that I'm planning to build.

different package, and some current ratings are different, but probably nothing that would affect its use in a pedal.

For the RangeBlaster you can use just about any Germanium diode...1N100, 1N270, 1N34, 1N34A, etc.  Just as long as it's Ge. it should work fine Smiley  1N34A is one of the more common values, so I listed that one on the schematic.
