Germanium diode replacement

Post by Gilmour928 » Mon Feb 17, 2020 7:29 pm

Does anyone know what I could use as a modern equivalent to replace a OA 95 diode in an envelope generator. Numerous google searches aren't coming up with much.

Hi,
Some people suggest using a 1N34A as a substitute for the OA95.
A germanium diode 1N34A has lower voltage range - 65 volts, but current parameters are similar for both of them. Your schematic may be used with the 24 to 30 volts maximum, I think.
