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.

Use these in my shop on a regular basis and they are great value. Is there better?? Yes!!! But for the average customer and for most budgets these are a grand slam.

Appear to be good quality, I use them regularly, never had a problem. Very Satisfied.

0.10mf cap

By A Pitcher from Toronto, Canada
(Customer's Reviews) Friday, February 11, 2011

Installed 0.10mf cap in an Epiphone Viola Bass. Useful tone across the range of the pot and still remains musical with the tone knob at zero. Provides the option for more low-end tone on a treble-voiced instrument. My only complaint is that I now have 11 more than I needed for the job.
