Poindexter transistor error on the PDF
« on: March 10, 2012, 10:05:04 PM »
It shows 4 transistors but the PCB clearly requires 5.  What transistor should be used for Q5?
Here is the poindexter PDF:

I found this out because I'm building the pedal right now and I only have 4 transistors lol.  Does radioshack sell 2N3904 trannies or am I looking at a week wait from smallbear?  Or better yet, am I just reading something wrong?

You are correct--the BOM states Q1-Q4, but it requires 5 2n3904. I haven't been to Radio Shack in quite a while so I don't know if you will get lucky there or not. You could always put a call out in the new "Parts Jar" section of the forum---I'm sure someone can get you one. I should have quite a few myself, so I can drop one in the mail to you.
I own madbeanpedals (duh). I am part owner of Function F(X).

You can also get and assortmentfrom ratshack that has 2n3904's, 2n4404's and 2n2222's. UNder five bucks for I think 15 ( five each) or something close to that.
