These are genuine Mill-Max sockets. 20 pins, and you cut them to the length you need and save the rest for later.
We include these in our kits because there are a lot of new builders out there, and we don't want them damaging transistors with too much heat, in case they are not yet really-experienced solderhands.
These are great for those who like to experiment with their circuits and try out different compoents to find just the sound they want. These are also great for test circuits like the one we use to match our JFET quad sets for phasers. Stick in the part, measure, pull it out. Next!
We had complaints with some of the cheap imported sockets we had sent a few of our customers--Transistors would just not stay put. Since we switched to this brand of socket, we have had no complaints. These do cost a little bit more, but if you've had issues with cheap sockets, we think you will notice a difference if you give 'em a try.
