1W metal film resistors

1W power rating, wide range of values to choose from


Ideal for those who find the super-efficient and super-compact 0.6W metal film resistors too small! These are closer to the size of the 1W carbon film resistors.


Most values are 5% tolerance and have the usual 3-colour banding to indicate resistance value (typical for guitar amp resistors), but a few are 1% precision and have 4-colour banding. In the latter case, the first three bands give the first three digits and the fourth band is the order of magnitude multiplier. For example, red – red – black – orange translates as 2 2 0 followed by three 0s = 220,000 ohms, or 220k ohms.




Note: (April 2022: the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the sanctions have disrupted the global supply of valves. Therefore, only the version without valves is available until further notice.).
