Re: AC128's
Guys, there is no trouble getting AC128's. The problem is what you get when you get them. I can get them in substantial quantities. However, on all the ones I got, from a couple of different sources, I had to test every one, and throw away about two out of every three. The yield of the really good gain selection is about two out of ten. Count on buying ten to get a good pair.  
From everything I've read, this is no different today than it was when the AC128 was in current production. There are stories about guys getting into the latest shipment of Fuzz Faces at music stores to audition them and select the one or two good sounding ones out of the latest batch to come in.
