I would not use a carbon res for a gridstopper - much too noisy! :idea: :wink:

I forgot to order the additional 10k stoppers. :redface: I will replace those as well, but only for originality sake.

I was experiencing what sounded like blocking distortion in the RK100 preamp, after installing new KOA Speer metal film resistors. I checked the cathode resistors for proper value... Okay. I then replaced the cathode bypass caps... No improvement. I then checked the PI circuit, and did a tube-swap... No improvement. ??? I decided to replace the KOA cathode resistors (V1a/b) with a pair of Takman REY metal film resistors... Problem solved! Wrong values? I then removed all of the newly installed KOA Speer resistors, and refitted the entire amp with Takman REY metal film resistors to stock specs. The tone is otherworldly! :thumbup:

I don't know what the issue was, only that it was limited to an energized circuit. Apparently, KOA Speer metal film resistors are now made in China! :thumbdown:

Excellent work on a very AWESOME amp.
I've gotta say, I've really wanted one of these for years... You have definitely caught my attention here!
SO, ....would you ever consider selling this RK100 again?? :cool:

Thanks! I actually ran it on Reverb.com last week, where it caught the attention of a well-known actor and personal friend of both R. Kotzen and W. DiMartini. We've been negotiating, as I was selling it as a "pickup only" item.
