Sources for 2W-5W Carbon Comp. Resistors?
Hey, folks. Does anyone out there know of a company or distributor/supply house that has cheap 2W and 5W Carbon composition resistors? I would like to buy a slew of them of different values for tube amp experimentation. From what I understand, these are the resistors of choice for that classic tube sound. Any leads would be greatly appreciated.  
I just can't see buying from Allied or Mouser at their prices. I dunno, maybe they're the best deal around, but I would like to know if anyone knows of a "secret special source".  
My amps and I thank you.
