I just read on Kitrae's site that he believes the FS36999 transistors are 2N5133 with a custom mark. So it sounds like my Triangle is possibly the same as the one on the right in the vid?

I am positive they are, but I would not focus so much on the transistors. The cap and resistor value sets affect how the circuit sounds much, more. There were at least 18 different variations on those. Most of those variants sound similar to each other, but there are 4 or 5 that that had their own unique sound. Throw the wild part tolerances into the mix, plus caps losing capacitance over the years, and they can sound very different from each other. Two identical circuits from the same run with the exact same set of component types and printed values can even sound very different.

Any chance of a run of builds like the Muff on the left Jim?
