Resistance is useless

    Cleaning up my spare bits box and pretty sure these aren't the parts I'm looking for . . .

    If I'm not mistaken, both of these resistors are 3.3KΩ, with one at 1 per cent tolerance and the other 5 per cent. Did I read them correctly?

    (I'm after a 470KΩ or similar for a P90 neck pickup, so I'm out of luck for now.)

    Resistance is feudal.

    Really who could blame them, back then?

    Resistance is OHMIC ( Ω )!

    There are several resistance code calculators on line. I always have one up when I'm working on an electronic project.

    I also check each resistor with my AVO before I use it - I am perfectly capable of misinterpreting the codes, and resistors are perfectly capable of being duff!

    Multimeter for me all the time. I'm a little color blind, and Mother Nature doesn't accept that as an excuse. :)
