Emerson Chicklet Caps

Great repro look and vintage tone for aficionados of 1950s Fender guitars and basses.

Emerson replica tone caps are painstakingly handcrafted, using highly-sought "new old stock" paper-in-oil Soviet military surplus capacitors.

Value Common use
.050uF - 150V Single-coil guitars, many basses
.100uF - 150V Basses and certain eras of vintage Fender guitars

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:
