Lil Sidrassi - Alternative for 2N3819

Post by tuukka.j » Tue Apr 18, 2017 11:45 am

Is here anyone who would be aware what the 2N3819 transistor does in the Lil Sidrassi paper circuit, and if it can be replaced with something else?

Link to the circuit here:

I read here this is replacement: MMBF5484 (512-MMBF5484 as SMD at Mouser).

But Mouser has 2N3819 here ... 6jNH1TQ%3d

I just looked at Mouser: You can order the 2n3819, but minimum order is 5000.

Looking for an alternative, I found this ('How to Substitute 2N3819 with BF256B'):

And: I can confirm that it is working :banana:

You only have to turn it around by 180 degrees and twist two pins:
