Paper In Oil Signal Type Capacitors
Along with tube
amplifiers and other
'out of date' audio technology,
these paper in oil signal capacitors have helped revolutionize the
world. Back in 1987 I returned from a European buying trip
carrying the first shipment of Jensen paper in oil audio signal caps to
shores. Thanks to our efforts over the years, these fine sounding
have also become popular worldwide with high end guitar techs, tube
artisans and more enlightened recording studio equipment
We recommend these caps wholeheartedly for both vintage and new tube
Expensive, yes, but worth it.
The terminal end which is connected
to the outside foil is the end with the line on the marking. Some
like to connect the outside foil to the "low" voltage end because, even
though it is very small, there is a capacitance value between the
(aluminum tube) and the winding inside, and connecting the cap this way
will minimize this capacitance. (Personally, I don't think this is
Tone Cap Tips
In your guitar the Tone Cap rolls off the
highs. The higher the value the more highs are rolled off.
.015µf Great alternative to .022 in P-90 and humbucker equipped guitars. Woman tone!
.022µf The traditional value for P-90 and humbucker equipped guitars.
.047µf The traditional choice for Fender and other similarly equipped guitars with single coil pickups.
This value was used originally in old Fender guitars and basses but
most modern players feel that it rolls off the highs too much, a relic
from the days when guitar players had to 'double on bass'.
