Hi folks A general question about resistors really but with reference to the Bassman Micro.... The design uses carbon comp resistors pretty much throughout and I'm thinking of using carbon film instead (Kiwame to be exact). Are carbon comp specified here for mojo purposes or is there a specific reason for them beyond their vintage appeal. Merlin Blencowe describes metal film resistors as "the resistor of choice for nearly all audio applications" and from what I can see carbon film are close. His description of carbon comp resistors in 'Designing High Fidelity Preamps ' is pretty off putting but then again, the characteristics he talks about (distortion, etc.) may be the exact reason why they are specified in the Bassman Micro BoM. What are the thoughts on resistor choice and more importantly, am I really going to notice.
