New for 2019 - 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.
