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.

Great tone

I've used the .02s and the.05s and both sound great and produce great tone. Just purchased the .10s to tray and pump the low end even more.

0.10mf cap

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.
