a resistor on my B-52 recently burned out. pics are in this thread: https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=996507

well i took a look at the schematics and saw it calls for a 1W 1k2 ohm resistor. now all i could find at my local radio shack was 1w 1k ohm resistors. im assuming the 1k2 is 1002 and the 1k is 1000 ohm. is there a big difference between these values? the reason i'm not taking it to a shop is because they told me they charge $85 just to look at the amp (i already know whats wrong), and an additional $85/hour to fix the problem and they were hinting that the job was most likely not going to be done in the first hour. i just really need this amp to last me until january or february when i can most likely get an orange rocker 30.

1k2 means 1.2k, so 1200 ohms. 1k is just 1000 ohms, so you'll be about 20% out. You can probably order one off the internet for less than a dollar including postage. I'm sure someone can give you a useful website for it, if not use google

or you could get a 1k resistor and a 200ohm resistor in series.

but mouser has some 1k2 resistors, and you can get some that are much more accurate then the ones you get at radioshack too.

i can see what you mean by resistor accuracy. i just came back from another radio shack (i drove this time) and got 2 100 ohm 1 watt resistors. the three in series add up to ~ 1.180 ohm on the multimeter...

Wait. You have the 1k from radio shack, then bought two 100 ohms from another radioshack and you claim they only add up to 1.18 ohms? That makes no sense. Do you mean 1.18k ohms? If yes, then that should be fine.

lol. ya i meant 1.180k, but its definately not good enuff. the resistors get too hot and fall apart. i need one resistor with a 1.2k value.

i didn't see any 2w 1.2k only 2w 1.5k and 1k.

also wouldn't putting a 2 watt resistor be like ignoring the problem? kinda like replacing a 5amp fuse with a 15amp so it doesn't blow, thereby technically making the fuse useless?
