Our most popular capacitors; they get the job done at a great price.
Pack of 10.

Capacitors are energy-storage devices that filter the high frequencies. A cap lets the tone control roll off the treble response, progressively warming the tone. The higher the value, the more bass output from the tone control at its "zero" setting.

A cap wired to a potentiometer creates a standard tone control, as explained in this Article: How a tone control works.

Value Code Common use
180pF 181 PRS Treble bleed
.001uF 102Z Common Treble bleed
.022uF 223 Humbucker tone

.100uF 104 Basses and certain eras of vintage Fender guitars

Bumble bees? Orange drops? Oil & paper? These do the very same thing, & take up A LOT less space..

Nice caps! Not much to say about it.

Capacitors...What can you say?

By Pat Sullivan from Jacksonville, FL

I am not a capacitor expert but these seemed to be well constructed. I used them and a 6-way rotary switch to make my own Varitone-like control. They provided what I wanted but let me add that I added a (Stew-Mac) "Black Ice Cube" to the last position on the switch and that made it unique..Check it out B B King (sir).
