Tube Amp Doctor 'TAD' Mustard tone capacitor - .022uF & .047uF

£3.33

About
My favoured 'SoZo' branded yellow mustard caps in .022uF became increasingly difficult to get hold of through the beginning of 2021 sadly, so whilst I on the hunt for a viable alternative I gave the 'TAD' version a try and they're superb! So much so, these are now my go-to spec and have performed very very well, having got through well over a thousand caps now. All within tolerance, not a single broken leadout etc, so a solidly made good sounding cap. A fairly priced, quality reproduction of the classed mustard style tone caps, I'm more than happy to use these in my own guitars and harness kits. 

Which value for my guitar?
Although choices of cap value can be down to personal preference, there are some general recommendations that are followed - 

.022uF is a popular choice all-round but is perhaps a more common choice for humbucker pickups, this will help the characteristically darker sounding pickup retain some treble frequency clarity. Some players can also opt for a .01uF value in the neck humbucker position to further help clear up a particularly muddy/dark sounding pickup. The .022uF value can also work great with single coils though, and offers a more subtle effect on trebles than a .047uF.
