Ceramic Caps

About This Item

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 102 Common Treble bleed
.022uF 223 Humbucker tone
.047uF 473 Single-coil guitars, many basses
.100uF 104 Basses and certain eras of vintage Fender guitars

In adition to the resistors are the perfect treble bleed circuit, my clients jaws drops every time I demonstrate them how dramatically their guitar tone change with one of these that they want this circuitry on all of their guitars bringing more income to my shop with such a small investment.

These caps sound great in my mahogany laminate 335 style guitar. On a maple 335 style, one may prefer a PIO or Orange drop. Just experiment, as all these Cap varieties have an influence on sound and feel.
