I'm building a CGS01 Sub Oscillator and I just realized I only have 5% Carbon Film 4M7 resistors.

From the schematic it appears these resistors are used on the input stage of the mixer. Is it ok to use the 5% resistors or should I get some 1% metal film resistors instead? All the other resistors I've used are 1% metal film.

The parts guide indicates 5% CF are ok on trigger and gate inputs so I'm guessing I should use 1% but I wanted to ask if it would make a difference.

Unfortunately I just received a parts order and I'll end up paying $8 in shipping for $3 worth of parts (I order a minimum of 10 of anything small). Not a huge fee but I have 100 4M7 5% CF resistors in front of me.

If you're worried about it, you could always go through them with a multimeter and select the ones closest to 4M7. With a sample size of a hundred, there should be a few that are close.

I hadn't thought of that. Thanks Alan!
