Well, hold onto your hats because the newest MOUSER Electronics catalog
lists Holsworthy “HOLCO” metal film precision resistors. The price runs
$1.08 per single unit and $.90 per unit in lots of 50. You can contact
MOUSER at http://WWW.mouser.com or Tel# (800) 346-6873. Good news
indeed!

Now hold on just another doggone minute, pardners! Welborne Labs, one of
those ‘hi-fi kit places’ has Holco H4 resistors for $0.40 each, $0.35 in
lots of 50. A few (4) of the higher values are $0.65. Phone 303-470-6585

Well, as one of the “expensive” Hi-Fi kit places that carry Holcos, you might
want to know that The Parts Connection’s price on H8 (1/4 Watt) H4 (1/2 Watt)
and H2 (1 watt) resistors is $0.40 each except for values under 20 Ohms or
over 750K, which run slightly higher. We can be reached at
TP–(at)–onicfrontiers.com or 1-800-769-0747 in Canada and the U.S.

Just FYI,

Phil

I began collecting data about the microphones used by blue harp players before there was an internet. I began organizing it into JT30.com in the late 1990s. I accumulated more stuff than I remember. This is some of it.
