Sprague Orange Drop Capacitor - .033uF

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.

Middle Ground Capacitor

The .033uF guitar tone capacitor is for those seeking a middle ground between the .022uF and .047uF capacitors. Whilst the .022uF is great for humbuckers and the .047uF perfect for single-coils the .033uF sits just in between, great if you have slightly darker sounding single coils or a bright humbucker.

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.

Why not give it a try.

Using a 0.33 cap instead of the usual 0.22 cap was a bit of an experiment on my Partscaster Strat, on a personal level I like it, will definitely be using them again on future projects.

Tonal adjustment for Hofner President hollowbody

I needed to roll off the tone on my jazzbox without making holes for a tone pot. I decided to solder an OD across the jack socket. The .033 proved too high resistance for this purpose. I used an .002 in the event. Just right, like a tone knob rolled part way off, exactly what I was looking for. With an adjustable tone knob the .033 would be fine.
