Joe, you mean you were at Walmart buying buffers? Those keep that screaming, doppler sound oscillation from happening.... the buffer you wish the lady in front of you had used? See, buffers are good, especially in contest of Crybabies.

BTW, you aren't supposed to size them right there... not like shoes, man.  :icon_lol:

The thread I started should help people understand how the bias changes with different transistors.  I also show a place to adjust bias that has a min effect on the rest of the circuit. IMO higher hfe transistors are good for the EF section Q2

To truly compare Q1 effect on tone one should adjust the bias for the same collector voltage after switching transistors

The real question IMO.  Is the tone from the transistor(s) or is the tone from the bias/operating points of Q1, Q2?
