Default Resistor Kit

Hey Guys,

I'm looking for a resistor kit with a wide variety of resistor values and quantity. I have seen some kits on Mouser but they are a bit pricey and only come with 10 of each value.

Anyone know of any kits with good assortment at a good price???



Thanks


Lawrence

If you are looking for 1/4 watt 5% carbon film,
try looking at Jameco. The sell assortments.
They sell 1/4 watt carbon film at a penny each.

I know I plug this place too much, but have you tried ebay?

metal film kit

carbon film kit

Those are in the US, if you don't mind ordering and waiting for a kit from Hong Kong this one is 50 value 50pc. each value.

Those kits seem like a really good deal. My strategy is to design with a limited number of values, and buy those values 200 at a time from Digikey. I tend to use even decades (1,10,100...), and then certain values that combine to give common gains and attenuation (2,20, 200..., 499, 4990, 909, 9090, 110, etc). Still, I end up with a fair investment in resistors. It might make a lot of sense to get one of the kits, then supplement it with larger quantities of the more commonly used values. I also try to stick with the standard E-96 1% values, not the E-24 series that some of the kits contain.

Duhhh why didnt I think of ebay. The ebay link that theAnonymous1 provided is exactly what I wanted. Thats more resistors than I will ever need but better to have too much than too little (very annoying).


Thanks guys

You can't beat the value and how many values (sorry about the pun)! Have you used these? Are they good for HiFi signal path audio applicatios or only for prototypes and then when you know it works, you replace them with Vishay Dale or equivalent high quality?

Thanks!

Regards//Keith

I've bought the kit from the first link. I am a certified Grade A Frugil-phile; so regular metal films are good enough for me. I do have some Dale resistors but they weren't bought because they are Dale, they just happened to be cheap and available on ebay at the time.

I have the resistor set from that seller, and quite frankly, it looks to me like it's carbon film.
See attached photo. The resistor to the right with the blue body.

Best regards Ebbe

Edit: The photo maybe is too blurry ?
