Re: 2 ten ohm resisters and button Mic element
Please be mindful that there are resistor codes with three bands plus a forth for tolerance and four band plus a fifth for tolerance.I always measure them now to check and it is not unusual either to find one wrongly marked or indeed open circuit.Takes a few seconds to check each resistor,well worth the time .

I did not check my resistors out,just going by what I had read for the values. Now that Howard sent that chart , it makes sense. they are using an extra band or standard. I would not have thought of that either. Been building and repairing things on a hobby scale for around 50 years. But mostly US parts. Just never ran across resistors like that either. Or if I had, never looked at the color code.
I just verified mine and they are a nominal 10,000 ohms with colors like yours. I did put one under my microscope I use for SMD work and looks to be brown, black, black ,red, gold.

Thanks Ralph was pretty sure about the mike and button switch. The resistors are brown brown black brown colour code. Unless I am mistaken that's ten ohms. Much appreciate the prompt assistance.
