Black Bee Capacitor PIO

£3.95 On Sale

Black Bee PIO (paper in oil) tone capacitors for guitar and bass.

Choose from 0.022uF or 0.047uF

Paper in oil capacitors have stirred much debate within the guitarist community. Do they make a difference? Are they forged using dragon's breath and filled with unicorn blood? They seem to have a mythical presence and their potential "upgrade" in tone has long been debated.

Many are adamant - the paper in oil dialectic offers warm highs and a greater mid range - a full and usable sweep on your tone control.

Whatever side of the debate you're on, we stock these and they are available at a competitive price.

0.022uF tone capacitors are typically used with humbuckers and 0.047uF with single coil pickups. However, this is subjective and ultimately is down to personal tastes.
