I have signal from my audio input through both R2, R3, C1 and then the first pin of Q1. My values after reflowing the socket for Q1 are g=3.4, S=2.3, and D=10.4. I thought of a variable that may matter. Mammoth electronics didn’t have 2N5457 transistors and I remembered that trying other transistors was a way to tinker with the sound so I substituted 2N5089 for the two 5457’s. Could that be the root of my voltage and signal issues?
