These orange drops are smaller than our big barrel-type capacitor. These are a great alternative to the vintage mallards with a fattening quality with very even mids. It sounds very smooth and even, with a bit more present top. Famous for their excellent clear midrange. We recommend these capacitors for any modern style harness. 

Polyester (mylar) capacitor

Tolerance +- 10%

Can not be used in amplifiers (voltage too low: 100volts)

0.001uf: treble bleed

0.022uf: Humbuckers

0.047uf: Singlecoils and bass

0.100uf: some basses, some '50s and '60s fenders

The higher the value the bigger capacitor, the darker the tone. Installing a new capacitor might have a bigger effect on your tone instead of mounting new pickups. When designing pickups, designing a wiring harness with the right pots and caps alongside will ensure the customer gets the tone they are after, and the one that you designed. 


All pots and switches have a 3-4 day delivery time. Please take into account that these parts will bring your average 24h ship out time to 3-4 business days.
