Are these diodes good for any pedal building?

I’ve got a few of these rectifier diodes I scavenged and I’m thinking about making a pedal with them. Are they any good from a tone perspective?

Silicon diode... they will work but don't expect the sound to be too different from the 1N4001 or other Si diodes. Gets extra points for the look though :)

Check to see if the case is connected to that top lead, and if it is, you need to insulate it from other circuit parts.
