What’s the deal...why so expensive?!
Cause it's purity...
Because the snakes they get the oil from are hard to catch.
Because people will pay it. They're marketing it to people who believe that a capacitor, which is not in the signal path in the guitar, has some magic characteristic that matters. The only characteristic that matters is the capacitance.
Buy a polyester or other film capacitor that has a +/- tolerance of 10% and you can buy it cheap. 10% is a better tolerance than most ceramic disk or PIO caps, and gives you a better chance of a 0.027 MFD cap being close to that nominal value. Should be less than a $1.00 USD.
I put the Fender branded ones in my Telecaster because it says Fender on it...
Here goes the capacitor tirade once again...
so leme see if I can nip it in the bud...
capacitors are cheep, relative to many of the other mods guys wanna try... even 17.00 examples... so just go for it.... but do so informed... that way you actually know..
here's some videos from guys that know their shi* ...
perhaps after spending a few minutes you can make an educated decision..
and if you have any doubts, and are honest enough with yourself to choose to become informed, this is the best 24 minutes you can spend.. it is by an Engineer that doesn't mention Guitar once... it is ONLY about Caps and what and how and why different types excel over others...
I got a whole emerson kit cause I am lazy as heck and it came with that capacitor. Seems to work fine.
I like the Orange drop type 716P. Their plated copper leads are easy to solder and they sound great.
For my next project I am tempted to try paper in wax.
They can get what they get.......................because sheeple will buy it.
Gotta save this bookmark...
