comment Silicon vs Germanium Fuzz
It's not so much the forward bias difference that makes germanium diodes sound different from silicon diodes as it is the difference in the efficiency with which they transition between conducting and not conducting. Silicon diodes are way better at it, which is why nobody uses germanium diodes in digital circuits any more. Germanium diodes seem to wobble a little bit as they start to conduct, which leads to a softer clipping and sucks up some of the very high frequencies. Silicon diodes result in a slightly harsher clipping.
