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

good stuff

Bought these to have a bunch. I have a lot of other types, didn't have any ceramics. Quick tried one, worked fine. Good and affordable.

Wish they also carried the physically larger higher voltage sizes too (dime size) but it's probably unnecessary, they probably chose what they chose for for a reason, don't know.

I bought the .022 & .047 for my guitars and they work just fine... Buy them !
Don't let the size fool you , I see a lot of company's using these smaller/tiny type.
And you will have a lot left over for your buddies guitars and their buddies guitars and so on... and so on...

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
