Collection: Capacitors

Capacitors are a fun little electrical component that ensures your tone changes (high frequencies removed) when you roll down the tone control on your instrument. 

These come in all shapes and sizes, literally, and there are a lot of different types and values. 

Our highest selling capacitor, found in countless guitars world-wide is the Sprague 'Orange Drop', which is a 'Film Capacitor'. The other common type is a 'Paper in Oil' capacitor, these are found in many vintage and vintage reissue instruments, they look very cool!

As for capacitance, the higher the value, the more high-frequencies get rolled off. As a rule of thumb, we usually recommend .047uf in single coil guitars like Fenders, and .022uf for Gibsons and other humbucking guitars, but feel free to experiment!
