Resistor Type Summary

Not sure which type of resistor to get, here are some thoughts on resistor types

Carbon Composition: Mostly Dark Brown vintage looking and vintage sounding resistors, Good for authentic repairs and vintage amp reproductions. Can be noisy/“hissy” , particularly in higher Ohm values. Resistance ratings can drift with time. Has the “Mojo” Factor
Carbon Film: Modern general purpose resistor, easily available and cost effective. Used by many amp builder, Good general choice.
Metal Film Resistor: Modern general purpose resistor, with generally lower noise and more stable resistance ratings, available in high accuracy ratings. Good for high gain amps, recording amps and Hi-fi amps to reduce noise but has little “Mojo” factor in the vintage market.
