-And if you think they are bad, why?
Are they the old doorknob style or the TO-3 case?
Thanks for responding. These are the round "door knob" types. But I've jumped the gun on this and need to do more testing. Tx.
Germanium transistors tend to show a bit of leakage when testing from emitter to collector. So don't reject them on that account unless they show a dead short or the same (and high) leakage in both directions.
If you do run into actually bad parts, I have a bin of old doorknob devices. For audio outputs they usually are not all that critical so its possible I have something on hand that will work.
