Carbon Composition Resistors are the choice of tube amp experts for excellent tone and sonical performance.
No surprise that those have been used in Fender amps since the early 50s.
Used in many tube amplifiers (Fender, Matchless, Mesa Boogie, Dumble and many more) due to its superior sonical performance. Recommended for restoring vintage tube amplifiers with original specs, to tweak excisting re-issues of vintage amplifiers and for building your DIY amp with authentic components.
Compared with film type resistors, carbon composition resistors have much better pulse endurance charactistics and allow a more open and airy top end tone characteristic.
