RE: Any scope photos of different resistors...

Actually resistors do measure quite differently. Vishay has released several PDF files on this comparing the different types. carbon comps are usually noisier but do have a nice tonal quality to them. Carbon film are a bit quieter, next are metal film, then lower noise than metal film are wire wound. Metal foil are the quietest of the resistor types, but few if any mfgrs use all 100% metal foil resistors since the cost is so high.
