ba662 tall clown arrives

clown comparison

Having given up trying to hand solder the SOT-363 bits on the OpenMusicLabs BA662 clone/clown, here’s a version with BCM847DS/BCM857DS transistors instead of the dust-like PMP4201/5201.

No idea if it’ll work. The specs look almost identical, apart from a tighter hfe tolerance on the smaller device which I don’t think will matter anyway.

    Think it works but I’ve cleverly managed to break my collarbone in the meantime. When I’m properly back to two arms I’ll have more of a chance.
