Orange Drop tone capacitors


This is the Sprague Orange Drop 715P .022uF & .047uF tone capacitor. Audio grade Polypropylene dielectric material provides a smooth, wah type tone with no sonic impurities. 

They're available in either .022uF or .047uF ratings. As a rule the general recommendation is .022uF for humbuckers, .047uF for single coils. This is usually based off the pickup manufacturers recommendations, but you can of course use whichever you choose for the given application. I personally prefer .022uF for both single coil and humbuckers for example, the reason being that a .022uF will 'roll off' less treble than a .047uF, making the pot 'sweep' sound a touch more gradual. A .047uF will be an ever so slightly 'steeper' roll off of trebles. It's personal preference, but first port of call would be to check out your pickup manufacturers recommendation and go from there. For reference, all McNelly Pickups are recommended to pair with .022uF capacitors. Hope this helps!

As these are used daily in my Entry Series wiring harnesses, stock is usually carried here, but I will update the listing when they are on back order. Currently both .022uF and .047uF are in stock.
