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.

Works good

These really look nice, does what it supposed to do. I don't know if they are better than ceramic caps but look a lot better in the circuit, at least gives you the impression they are better. If you think they sound too dark turned down all the way then don't turn it down all the way.

great fix for mini-buckers

Bass notes now sound like notes instead of thuds. Much more tonal definition.

Nice Caps

These are good mid range all around caps. I find they get really dark and muddy all the way on, more so than the higher end bumblebee style caps.

good capacitors!

These capacitors are much better than ceramic caps but if you want the best capacitors, you would have to go to the original oil filled caps but they are much more costly and for most DYO repairs, these caps are very good!

You get what you pay for, and these are quite expensive.

Good Part

Like the smaller-sized pots I also purchased, this part was reliable and sturdy.

They're capacitors

Not much more to say. Customer specifically asked for Orange Drop caps, so I bought them. They measured very close to stamped values, so good tolerances.
