2n5952 replacement for phase 45??
« on: February 19, 2007, 06:11:30 PM »
The guy from the electronics shop looked up in the a book and he said he couldnt find any replacement.
The ones I have are: bs170, mpf102 2n7000
Thanks

Well, if those are all you have you'd have to go with the MPF102 as they are the only JFET in the bunch.
I ended up using J201's in mine and it worked fine.
My favorite Phase circuit!  :)

2N5485 is the closest US type.

2SK30A and 2SK118 might work if you can get Japanese parts.

  Since there are only two..swap-a-diddle [with bias pot] can get a 45 phase sweeping.
  Might be a while, not only alot of transistors must possibly be tried [kind of like a combination lock with no numbers] to find the two that cause it to start sweeping...and you know about Jfet matching for phasers at GEO
Convention creates following, following creates convention.

Rafa, use the MPF102 or the BF245, it's very cheap here, the MPF102 around $0,70 (pesos argentinos eh!!), buy a bunch, around 20...30 and use the JFET matcher. Maybe it's "better" to build the Phase 90 and make a stage switch to switch between the Phase 45 and Phase 90 sound. I build the Phase 90 and with 20 MPF102 got 2 pairs of 4 matched FET's (lucky me!), around 2v of Vgs(off).

A while back, Steve Daniels sent me sixteen 2N5457 transistors, graded by Idss, Vp, and transconductance (like I know what any of that is!  :icon_rolleyes: ), to find out if they would provide acceptable substitutes for Phase 90 clones.  They covered a broad range of values along those parameters.  I used various sets of 4 that were close to each other in those specs, plugged them into sockets normally used for 2N5952s in a functioning P90 clone, tweaked the bias appropriately, and found that they all provided very musical-sounding phasing.

So, if you can't get 2N5952s, the 2N5457 (a fairy common JFET) is a decent substitute.
