  • Lead Thickness: 0.5 mm (0.020”)
P-Q1N53X Diode - Zener, 5 Watt, ±5% tolerance
5W zener diodes that are great for use in tube amps. These are commonly used to drop B+ voltages for tube modification compatibility or to create low power modes for the amp. A zener is a semiconductor device that, above a certain reverse voltage(the zener value) has a sudden rise in current. If forward biased, the diode is an ordinary rectifier. When reverse biased, it exhibits a sharp break in its current-voltage graph. Voltage across the diode remains essentially constant for any further increase of reverse current.

P-QOP275 Op-Amp - OP275, Dual, Bipolar/JFET, Audio, 8-Pin DIP
OP275 dual audio op amp in an 8-pin DIP package. The OP275 is the first amplifier to feature the Butler Amplifier front end. This new front end design combines both bipolar and JFET transistors to attain amplifiers with the accuracy and low noise performance of bipolar transistors, and the speed and sound quality of JFETs. Total Harmonic Distortion plus Noise equals that of previous audio amplifiers, but at much lower supply currents. A very low l/f corner of below 6 Hz maintains a flat noise density response. Whether noise is measured at either 30 Hz or 1 kHz, it is only 6 nVHz. The JFET portion of the input stage gives the OP275 its high slew rates to keep distortion low, even when large output swings are required, and the 22 V/µs slew rate of the OP275 is the fastest of any standard audio amplifier.
W-QP-518MA-BM 3.5mm Jack - Qingpu, Eurorack, Mono, Switched Tip, Snap-In, PCM
3.5mm TS jacks with a switched tip found in many DIY Eurorack projects. The WQP-WQP518MA-BM is the new improved version of the WQP-PJ301BM featuring Qingpu’s rugged square based bushing. The sleeve connection is through the outer bracket that snaps into place on the pcb allowing for easy construction and panel fitting. Hardware sold separately. See accessory items below.
S-MHS-X Heat Shrink - 2:1, Thin Wall Tubing, Polyolefin, Black
Thin wall heat shrink tubing available in multiple diameters. The flexible yet durable polyolefin material and standard 2:1 shrink ratio make this heat shrink a great option for electrical insulation, cable bundling, and component protection.
  • Operating Temperature: -55°C to +135°C
  • Minimum Shrink Temperature: 70°C
  • Full Recovery Temperature: 100°C
  • UL Approval
  • RoHS Compliant
Starting at $0.35

P-QNJM4558L Op-Amp - NJM4558L, Dual high-gain, 8-Pin SIP
NJM4558L dual op amp from JRC in a SIP8 package. The NJM4558L is the same as the DIP NJM4558 (JRC4558) otherwise. The SIP version is a great replacement for dual op amps in vintage circuits as well as a space saving package for some PCB layouts. The NJM4558L is a dual high-gain operational amplifier with internal compensation circuit and constructed on a single silicon chip. It offers excellent characteristics by combining the parameters adjusted for a monolithic chip. The channel separation characteristic is suitable for measuring instruments. Features:
  • Operating Voltage ( ±4V~±18V )
  • High Voltage Gain ( 100dB typ. )
  • High Input Resistance ( 5MΩ typ. )
  • Bipolar Technology

See P-Q4558 for the DIP version of this chip
P-L200 LED Bezel - for 3mm LED, used for mounting
Holder for mounting LEDs to panels.
P-QBC560 Transistor - BC560, General Purpose, TO-92 case, PNP
The BC560 is a silicon general purpose PNP transistor in a TO-92 package. The BC560’s typical applications include signal processing, amplification, and switching.
S-W33 Wire - 22 AWG Solid Core, PVC, 600V, 50 Foot Roll
Colors Available:
600V solid wire. UL style 1015, rated to 105 degrees C. Perfect for new projects, rewiring electrical equipment, or use in breadboards, perfboard, and veroboard/stripboard.
Starting at $8.95
P-QTL071 Op-Amp - TL071, Single, Low-Noise, JFET-input, 8-Pin DIP
TL071 single op amp in an 8-pin DIP package. The TL07xx JFET-input operational amplifier family is designed to offer a wider selection than any previously developed operational amplifier family. Each of these JFET-input operational amplifiers incorporates well-matched, high-voltage JFET and bipolar transistors in a monolithic integrated circuit. The devices feature high slew rates, low-input bias and offset currents, and low offset-voltage temperature coefficient. The low harmonic distortion and low noise make the TL07xseries ideally suited for high-fidelity and audio pre-amplifier applications.
P-PC-ST3U StripBoard - Single Sided, 6.30” x 3.94”
ST3U StripBoard is a prototyping circuit board with a standard long strip pattern. Tracks run the length of the board. The long tracks are convenient for power and ground rails, and for signal buses. Strips can be cut as needed to make smaller tracks and circuit pads. It has 0.1" hole spacing for DIP integrated circuits and headers and other parts. It has higher quality than traditional stripboard. The holes are drilled, not punched. The base material is high-quality FR4 glass epoxy board. It has better stability and moisture resistance than boards using phenolic or SRBP (synthetic resin bonded paper), which can warp with exposure to humidity. Features
  • Standard stripboard pattern, with tracks running the length of the board.
  • Single-sided high-quality FR4 glass-epoxy circuit board.
  • 1oz/ft2 copper with an anti-tarnish coating for easy soldering.
