    The transistors don't have the accent. That'd be silly.



    I know I'm not alone on here in enjoying old training and product videos. The valve factory videos are a regular occurrence, so here's some solid state action to even things up.
    Fans of Germanium fuzz pedals who puzzle as to why they're so finicky about temperature when using NOS devices will find enlightenment within too.

    We make Music with the tools made available to us.
    I will say that the Germanium Tube Screamer works better for me.
    I can control the Gain structure from my Guitar when I'm singing.

    To each their own.
