Emerson Paper-In-Oil Tone Capacitors

Vintage specs. Responsive, warm tone. Genuine handmade tone caps from our friend Mitch Ingram at Emerson Custom Guitars and Electronics.

Mitch's latest design is made in the USA to military specs. They still have the kraft paper-in-oil construction like the vintage Russians, but these are hermetically sealed metal tubes with glass ends so the value will not drift over time.

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
