I recently purchased an Epiphone Valve Jr. head along with the Bitmo Swanky mod. I decided that instead of putting two 1000K resistors in parallel (I don't have the best skill with an iron), I would just put one 500K in. This is for R6. I went to purchase said resistor, and I was met with wattage ratings in addition to ohms! I purchased the 1/2 watt 500K resistor, as it is before the EL84 in the schematic and therefore shouldn't need a higher rating than that... right? I don't want to blow the damned thing up, so I thought I'd ask. Thanks.
