These are the same high quality resistors used by JHS Pedals and other leading makers of fine electronics.
Resistor values are indicated by colored bands, read from left to right. The first color in the code is usually the one painted closest to a lead wire. When a gold or silver band is present, it's always one of the last colors in the code. A magnifier is a big help in reading these codes.
Resistance is measured in ohms. One kilo-ohm = 1000 ohms. One megohm = 1,000,000 ohms.
HOT TIP! Treble bleed mod for guitars
Solder #7373 150K-ohm resistor in parallel to a 0.001uF capacitor (or use our pre-soldered Treble Bleed Circuit). Wire this simple mod between the input and output lugs of your guitar volume control pot. Get more uniform tone from 1 to 10, and a more rounded sound at low volume.
