Ceramic Caps for Guitar

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

I ordered ten packs of three different caps, np. Would have been nice if the poly (3) polybags were marked with the value to save time. No big deal, just sayin'.
Still luv y'all

THESE SOUND GREAT!!

WHAT CAN I SAY? I don't really hear any difference between these @ the more expensive caps. I'll continue to use O.D's in my better guitars but I have no doubt these do the job just as well @ at a fraction of the price. Maybe its a matter of "time will tell"....but.. replacing a cap is no biggie after all. I'm glad I bought these @ made the comparison. GOOD VALUE! in my opinion.
