Sprague Orange Drop Capacitor - .047uF

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.

Single Coil Capacitor

The .047uF capacitor is most popularly found on single coils like your Stratocaster and Telecaster pickups. It has a darker sound which makes it great for taming the harshness out of more treble-heavy pickups. With one of these installed, you'll find the high end detail disappears quickly when you roll off the tone knob. This makes them very popular with a variety of players looking for a darker sound, particularly with Blues and Jazz players.

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.

Sprague Orange Drop Capacitor - .047uF?

Worked perfectly on my telecaster when added to the CTS pots from NWG.

I was looking for a capacitor to give a lower tone one the on low strings and a sharper sparkly sound on the the higher strings which the .047uF provided.
