Hello,

Other than minding the pin outs, is there a particular reason that one is better than the other in the Depot Fuzz?

Thanks!

Also the P indicates the plastic casing (to-92 maybe?) as opposed to the germanium looking style ones. I've seen people make arguments that they sound slightly different. The manufacturer says they are the same. I don't worry too much about it but save the metal cans for "vintage" circuits. If my memory serves me correctly same with bc10* and bc54* series. Former being the cans latter being plastic.
