Default KT88 cathode resistors?

Hi all

I need some metal film power resistors to fix an amp for a friend of mine.

The amp is an airtight ATM 2 and the resistors I need to replace are the cathode resistors (for KT88s). They look like about 2W or maybe 3W resistors. But the brand - I don't know what they are - have you guys seen them before?

Click the image to open in full size.

They are labelled as 10R (and the good ones measure as 10.4R) with a logo "RW-2" and then the value (10R) and underneath that "L609".


Also would anyone know where to buy some of them? I know that I could just get some alternates from mouser (and thats what I may end up doing) but I would like to keep this amp as "original" as possible.

TIA for your help...


Fran
