There are a few hundred pieces of 1/4W, 1/2W, 1W, 2W, 5W and 10W NOS AB resistors and some used carbon resistors from the golden era of tube amplifiers. While people are playing with NOS tubes, we're playing with NOS resistors.
Is it worth all the trouble to sort and reuse all these AB (+ other makes of made in USA resistors) carbon resistors? You bet! They are noisy no doubt but they do have the magical tone and harmonics that other more precise, lower noise and modern resistors could not produce.
These AB resistors may look ugly for now but they are gems worth discovering. They look nostalgic too when used in point-to-point wired tube amplifiers. These AB resistors will be hard to match and will cost quite a bit when built in our line of amplifiers.
I'm sorry they are NOT for sale. Please do not email and ask us about any carbon film resistors for sale.
Audiophiles, or audiophools? Go figure! Meanwhile, let us enjoy music while we sort out these resistors in the background.
