Orange Drop Capacitors


Orange drop capacitors are a perfect upgrade capacitor offering beautiful clarity compared to many factory standard ceramic caps in low end models.

The 0.022uf capacitor is typically paired with humbuckers.
The 0.047uF is typically paired with single coils.
We also offer 0.015uF which adds a bit of depth to neck pickups on a Les Paul and 0.033uF for that middle ground.

The orange drop is the choice of luthiers, techs and guitarists worldwide and are famous for their sweet, mellow tones.

Value - 0.015uF/0.022uF/0.033uF/0.047uF
Voltage rating - 100v
Capacitance Tolerance - 10%

A simple and costs effective way to improve the tonal performance of your guitar.

Are these Sprague orange drops? No - there is no such thing anymore. Sprague went out of business a long time ago and the "orange drop" product line changed hands a few times before being sold to Cornell Dubilier Electronics (CDE) in 2012.
