+ or - trannies, regardless from a carrier package,
they're both available in the many cases.
TO3, TO92, SOD, SOT, SSOT. 3,5 or 6 pins (for dual units),
SO6, SO8, SSIC, blah blah blah.

So I did her and then hit her with a brick.

Yes, I know the difference but have largely forgotten the details because I haven't had to pluck out the correct transistor from a parts bin to solder into a board in a few decades. But if I had to do it again, I'd make sure it was right.

N and P signify polarity of the bipolar junction transistor. NPN is "negative polarity" and PNP is "positive polarity". Basically which way the current would flow (to the emitter for NPN, from the emitter for PNP) when it was turned on. There are a lot of different types of transistors though, and they don't all have this sort of designation. I always considered NPN to be "typical" because PNP types were ass-backwards from what you normally wanted in a simple amp circuit or switch.

Here. Lemme kontribute something worthwhile; Tubes sound better than transistors, static electricity ruins my hair.

A LOT of folks claim that is true, but that is totally subjective opinion, not backed up by lab research ......

and May I suggest the static got to your brain???
