NOS Tone capacitor Circle "D" 0.05 uF 50V NOS for Fender / electric guitar

NOS Tone capacitor Circle “D” .05 uF 50V NOS for Fender / electric guitar

THIS IS NOT A REPRODUCTION, IT’S AN ORIGINAL!!

Description : Fender used these Circle “D” capacitors 0.05 uF between 1972 and 1975 !!!. Upgrade your capacitor and improve your tone to the golden years of vintage Fender guitars ! This is a high end capacitor used for tone control on electric guitars. NOS : New Old Stock.  USA made (so not a cheap China product).

Ceramic disc caps were the standard tone caps on all Fender guitars during the 60s and early 70s. They sound somekind of grainy, sort of wah-pedal or like the mid EQ slide on your Mesa Boogie being pushed up…. And for all : very vintage ! This one is for one NOS Circle “D” (Dielectron) .05 uF 50V ceramic disc capacitor. This is slightly warmer than te 0.022 uF that is used in modern guitars, so it gives the real vintage sound !

This auction is for one capacitor + one  length of Teflon Insulation. The euro you see in the picture is not included 😉

The mod itself is easy. Simply unsolder the capacitor from your tone pot and replace it by this one. Minimum skills required for fitting. Tools required are a soldering iron and access to the tone potentiometer in your guitar. 

Payment : Please notice : I do ship worldwide, but receiving and process payments using international money transfer from so many countries is very time consuming. For that reason : Paypal only….

Do you need more capacitors and if you have any questions : feel free to email me…. Please check my other auctions for other types of capacitors and mod-kits, such as greasebucket and treble bleed mods. In the bottom of this auction you will find a list with other capacitors I sell (check my other auctions). They all have their specific sound 

Why change your tone cap(s) ?! : A tone cap is part of the passive electronic circuit in your guitar. And a tone cap influences your sound ! And remember : the tone cap is always part of the guitar circuit and it even influences the tone when the tone pot is fully opened. 

On the internet you can read a lot of discussion about caps and their tonal influence. When you have a starter kit set type of guitar and amplifier, or use a chain of cheap china made stomp boxes, it will be difficult to hear any tonal change. The quality of your sound is limited and will stay limited. On the opposite : when you have decent gear, a quality tube amp, you surely will hear differences.

When comparing it to changing to high quality pickups : When I assume that changing from standard pickups to a set of Custom Shop pickups in your Fender Strat is 100% improvement in tonal quality, changing your stock cap into an high-end capacitor is in range of 10 to 20% tonal improvement. For my ears. Less effect then changing pickups, but for only a fraction of the costs of a new pickup set.

I’m repairing and maintaining guitars for about 20 years now, experienced a lot with pickups and electronics and thought it would be a good idea to share my ideas and knowlegde with you. For that reason I have made a selection of the capacitors that are used most, wich I sell all on Ebay (please check my other auctions to) :
