    Can anyone identify this supposed 1960s resistor between the can capacitors

    Between the can capacitors there is a resistor that doesn't look like any other resistor in the whole circuit.Can you tell what type of resistor this is,I am fairly new to all this .Do you know if the old color band codes from the 1960s ,match today's color codes .Green as hell,but I love learning interesting stuff .I would appreciate any info.thank you very much

    Very old resistors have a color code that works in the sequence 'body-tip-spot'.

    Explained here:

    Colored bands do work the same as today's.

    The slightly larger resistor is a ceramic body type - possibly an Erie. The smaller one is a carbon composition.

    I'd guess 1k, if I can read the paint correctly... what's it measure?
    Maybe 1W...

    What amp is it? Maybe there is a schematic available.

    The smaller carbon resistor is easy: red-red-red = 2.2K +/-20%

    I assume the larger resistor follows the body-tip-spot code that malcolm referenced in post #2.
    On my screen (which has lousy color rendering), I see a red body and a black stripe = two-zero-some number of zeroes.
    Is there a hidden dot somewhere on that resistor?

    no doubt on the 2.2k.
    If it is a Body-tip-spot, it looks to be a 1K. Man, that's tough though. Those colors could have drifted quite a bit (the resistance may have as well!)
    If I have a 50% chance of guessing the right answer, I guess wrong 80% of the time.

    Bob Ross would know if he were still with us.
