    I downloaded the Duncan Tone Stack calculator... It specifies a 517K resistor, which I haven't found online nor at Radio Shack (yeah, I know, I hate Radio Shack too... it was next to the Jack-in-the-Box so dropped in..)

    Where do you buy resistors of this value?

    Radio Shack has +/- 5% carbon comp, not so bad...
    Anyways they have some that you could put in parallel. Otherwise search the internet for online retailers

    Good electronics sources: Mouser, Digikey, Antique Electronic Supply to name a few. Parts Express has 510K resistors, which show next to no difference from a 517K when plugged into the TS calculator. HTH!

    OP, resistors come in standard values, depending on the accuracy of the part -- %10 vs. 5% vs. 1% vs 0.1% You have more selections at 1%, but they tend to fall on what you might think are sort of oddball values. Go to the mouser website and search on Vishay/Dale metal film and Xicon carbon film resistors for a primer.

    +1 for www.digikey.com
    There are no min. order and you'll get it in one business day.

    Cheers,
