Will tip31c work for music leds? Answered

I am interested in this:

Will tip31c work rather than tip31

I'm hypothesize that it will just affect sensitivity. (more or less?)


In the intro  of the ible scroll through some of the comments.

The author made the comment he used a TIP31C for his project so no need to fear you can use it :)

The only difference listed in the datasheets is that the "C" version is rated at 100 volts whereas the standard version (no letter) is rated for 40 volts. All else is the same. There is no reason you cannot use the "C" in this circuit if you already have it. If you have to buy one, you'll spend a few cents more for the "C".
