    For small signal application you can use 1N4148.

    Continuing with that, the 1N400x diodes are good as general-purpose rectifiers (up to one amp).

    1N4148, 1N4149, and any of the 1N400x (as others have mentioned)all work for general purpose type applications for diodes and rectifiers, just makes sure you use the ones with the proper current ratings for your applications..... these are standard ones I keep in my parts box.....
