Sprague Orange Drop Capacitor - .022uF

Sprague Orange Drop Capacitors are one of the most highly sought after tone capacitors for guitar thanks to their inherent quality and durability. Advertised as a premium feature in many Gibson guitars, guitarists love them thanks to their bullet proof reliability.

Humbucker Capacitor

Typically paired with humbuckers, the .022uF Capacitor will help ensure the darker, warmer tone of a humbucker is delivered with clarity and articulation. Probably the most popular type of guitar tone capacitor out there, the .022uF will pair nicely with single coils too.

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 Orange Drop Capacitors offer fantastic reliability and value for money, make them the choice for professional guitar players all over the world.

Just what I needed thank you, sounds great!

My tone pot for the middle pickup doesn't work anyway, so my review is inconclusive.

The orange drop cap makes such a difference to the sound well worth installing👍🎸👌🙂

Orange drop capacitor

It is a bit bigger than the one supplied through fender (dark red burgundy colour). I Have this orange drop on my custom telecaster tex mex pickups. Very nice sound on a small Vox amp. I will not say it is better than Fender standard, but a different capacitor same micro frequency creates a unique tone nice very 60s sound I get from it.
