Yeah, i kinda understand that... and im willing to change values as necessary...You can practically use any Si transistors you like for any fuzz, it’s just the biasing points and gain are going to be a little different. So you either have to tweak your resistor/coupling cap values, or maybe in some cases you want more or less of saturation/cutoff weird stuff.
What you say is correct, so I should perhaps rephrase or explain.
Well, sorry but I'm not the one confused. The OP said he had BC109's, not BC549's. BC109's are not BC549's.What you say is correct, so I should perhaps rephrase or explain.
I am in effect referring to the plastic TO-92 packages. I use those as my point of reference: flat face forward, pins facing down.
2N3904 = E B C TO-92A package (labelled as pins 1 2 3)
BC549 = C B E TO-92F package (labelled as pins 1 2 3) BC549 is the plastic cased (non mil-spec) equivalent of the BC109.
Some TO-92 transistors have a rear offset to the middle leg, making their footprint the same as metal can packages (direct drop in replacement).
So you can rephrase the BC109 as:
BC109 = C B E Emitter at Tab TO-18 package (Labelled as pins 3 2 1)
Emitter is closest to tab
I omitted the use of numbers to avoid adding confusion (which it seems to have done for you).
I stand behind my earlier post.
