Wanted - Rare Mojo Parts - Will Trade

Not really an "issue", but more of a wish list kind of item.

Now that Small Bear is starting they're phase out process I'm wondering if it would be a good idea to start a new channel on the forum here in a Want Ad style. I know I would love to swap transistors and other harder to find parts at merely the cost of shipping. Of course they wouldn't be for parts you can find here from Mr PCB himself.

Whatcha need? Whatcha got?

I have Ge and Si transistors to trade. I'm looking more for variety than functionality with the Ge, but I'll be happy to match up a set for whatever circuit in exchange (provided I have them).

Si, it's good to have a wide range if possible, and what better way to increase the mix than trading?

ICs, caps, Ge diodes, jacks, switches, etc.

If anyone has some 470KΩ RNC55's that would make a great start for a trade!

Shoot me a PM and take ride on the fig side.

I’ve been buying 100 piece sealed boxes of Russian germanium trannies for a few months now. Got MP16, MP20B, MP21a, MP38 and have some 1T308A’s coming. I like the sealed boxes because they haven’t been cherry picked and also have the old neat-o data sheet that I can’t read but has cool letters and numbers on it. There are a few sellers in Bulgaria and Russia that I’ve had great luck with (I put them on another thread). Also scored a 2,900 piece bag of kingbright 3mm red LED’s (same as they sell at smallbear) for $20. Pretty happy about that one.

Hello all, not sure if this is the right pace to post this but im in need of some 2N5952 transistors. I thought it would be a good place to start as they seem to be rarer than hens teeth right now.
Does anyone have any suggestions or know where I might find any!?
Thanks in advance.

Thanks @temol they are the only place I have found. Was wondering if there were any others. I guess the good thing about this one is at least they are matched.

Thanks, thats closer but $30 s for shipping to Canada sucks. Think I will try the Banzai ones as the shipping is half that.
Thanks for your help.

Hi @fig I have 3x XC Phase to build so I need 4 per build, so 12 in total! :-( would prefer them matched. I didn't think they would be that hard to get hold of so was planning to get a few and match them myself. Don't think I will do that at these prices haha

There should be some more readily available alternatives, but again you'd have to want to buy enough to get 4 quad sets, so 50 minimum, then the matching...so if you just want to get the pedals built, maybe buying the sets is the way to go. Barry's or Bruce's quad sets are spot on. If you get in a big squeeze, I can probably round you up a set. I've got 50 more incoming but they could turn out to be junk.

Thanks @fig I ill give Banzai a try first. I have never used them before so will see how the experience goes ;-) Will drop you a line if I need too.
