Sprague Dime Tone Capacitor - 0.1uF

Sprague Dime Tone Capacitors differ slightly from their more popular Orange Drop variety due to their construction. Ceramic disc, or 'Dime Caps' as they're more popularly known are an older technology that is very simple and stable. Popular for getting vintage correct tone, these are the kind of guitar tone caps that greats like Hendrix and Eric Johnson would have used.

Tone Pot Capacitor

The capacitor you choose works in tandem with your guitar tone pot, which acts like a light switch dimmer, only allowing particular frequencies through. This gives you the option to adjust your tone on the fly, cutting treble or bass as you please. Different capacitors take different levels of frequency from your signal, which can result in a darker or brighter sound depending on the combination of capacitor and tone pot used.

Tone Cap Values

All caps come with a value, for which the suffix is written uF (or sometimes mF). The ‘F’ stands for Farad, which is the standard unit of capacitance in all electronics. The Farad refers to the ability of a body to store electrical charge, in this case our Guitar Tone Capacitor. Guitar capacitors are comparatively small to some of those found in other electronic components, such as guitar amps for example, and are measured in millionths of a Farad, referred to as a microfarad.

Sprague Ceramic Disc Dime Capacitors offer excellent consistency and are great for creating vintage correct wiring circuits, or just replacing a capacitor like for like.
