I'm thinking of taking two nkt275's out of my old beano boost and installing them into the fuzz card on my captain coconut 2. I'm confident with a soldering iron but have no experience with pedals. Is this easy or is there a good youtube resource for potential pitfalls etc?

Assuming that both circuits use the same type of transistors, i.e. NPN on both or PNP on both then apart from biasing it should be an easy solder job. Pin outputs can be different across different package types of transistors too.

the beano only has 1 transistor, iirc :)

So yeah, easy to swap.

Beano only has one Transistor as it’s a Rangemaster.

Biasing a fuzz face can be a bitch
