I don't know what they were but I can't imagine
them being larger than 1/2 watt. 1 Watt resistors usually look like a rectangular

Subject: FC-7 resistor wattage?
Hello LD! I've been off the list for some time now -
pushing the buttons and diving deeper and deeper into the EDP.
FC-7 has been funny since the day I got it new in the mail. So now it's
time to replace the buttons on the FC-7. I'm a big guy so, being weary
of those little plastic red jobbies - I went for the sturdy looking metal ones
from British Audio Service.
Of course I trashed some of the reistors
gutting the foot controller and need to replace them ( I wanted to anyways -
something was not right w/ the overdub pedal and was it was occasionally to
close to the 'edit parameter' ~20K ??).
Anyways, long story short, I
called a supply place today to oder these (cause radio shack is not cuttin'
the mustard) and the tech on the phone immediately asked "What's the wattage?
1Watt ? 1/2 Watt?"
Now I apologize if this information has been
repeated elsewhere but, I really have dug around.......can anyone tell me the
appropriate wattage for the 1% metal film resistors?
