Default Reputable Parts Companies

It would be nice to have a grand list of reputable parts companies.

The only one I'm familar with is HSC Electronics (California). Limited
high end stock. . .lots of hunting and picking. Good quality selection
of oddball resitors and caps.

Would Mouser or DigiKey be on the list.

I've bought a LOT of counterfeit semiconductors from HSC. Pick and choose is right; I've gotten some terrific stuff there, but you have to go in person to really see what you're getting.

TAW electronics here in California. They don't carry a lot of vendors, but they have some pretty good and essential ones. If you live in CA it takes only a day or two for the parts to get to your door when shipped ground.

i second TAW. Good deals, quality products. If they dont have it they will try to get it for you.
at one point i had to force them to charge me, ha ha. I live like 1 minute walking distance from them so whenever i'd go over there to pick up my order they'd just give it to me and say dont worry about it, samples. After a while you feel guilty.
anyways very cool people.

Default here are some more

I like the lists so far, here are some more-

All Electronics (CA)

Gold Mine Electronics (Az)

EDIT- I see you are in California, if in SoCal- you MUST make a trip to Murphy's Surplus. Even if you are not, if you are ever in the SD area and remotely into DIY you need to visit this place. It will "save" you an amazing amount of $$. "Save" meaning you will see all kinds of stuff you want so cheap that you have to buy more...and more...
