Jupiter BUMBLE BEE .022 mfd Capacitors (USA)
Vintage Style capacitors for tonecontrol in passive guitars and Bases.
The historic Tone-Caps used by Gibson-Guitars in clissic design of the 1950s shape that sought after "smooth warm tone".
The Jupiter Bumble Bee Paper-In-Oil (PIO) capacitors are handcrafted for TAD by JUPITER CONDENSERS in the USA using authentic materials.
classic design - setting a new benchmark:
TAD/Jupiter Bumble Bee condensers are colour code marked 400V for historic reasons but cover a dielectric strength up to 600V which also qualifies them for use in tube amplifiers as stage coupling capacitors.
The improved dielectric strength is a key advantage.
Humbucker circuitry traditionally is uing .022mfd as tone cap; Single-Coil wiring often uses .047mfd.
The higher the capacity of the tone cap, the more significantly the top end gets tamed. It is quit interesting to experiment a bit to find the perfect match for your guitar and playing style.
