Need transistor for bass amp!!!!!

Postby (Sirdoug) » Mon Jun 02, 2008 11:24 am

Can anyone help? I'm looking for an RT 195 transistor for my TR35 Rickenbacker bass amp.

I see on another topic that transistors for these amps are hard to find. Does anyone know where I can get an RT 195??????

Thanks if you can help.

Is that an in-house part number or an actual semiconductor manufacturers part number?

I'm not sure what it is--I asked the guy at the repair show this morning what I'm looking for, and he said an rt195 transistor. I asked him if that's all I need to know, and he said yes. But now I'm beginning to think I need to know more. Will check tomorrow and see what else he can tell me. Thanks.

RT195 is proprietary transistor

I am told that the RT195 designation is for the proprietary part, that this transistor was made by or for Rickenbacker (it's an RT, or "Rickenbacker Transistor"). Which would explain why it isn't made anymore.

But that doesn't help me know if some other transistor would work in its place. Will try to get more info.

Try contacting Tracy Sands. He has a lot of parts for Rickenbacker amps.

If you can send me the schematics I know some guys who could probably come up with substitute transistors that should work okay.
