I came across a site that had me thinking I made a huge mistake throwing out my Philips Electronics Engineer kit last year in a clean up. (Yeah its gone.)
The capacitors in there could have qualified for enough coin to buy some new machines by the looks of things in this post
I just chuckled away like crazy to think guys are going out of their way to buy capacitors that are so old just to have that "genuine" part on the restored guitar.
So go dig out that stash of old greased up paper caps from old Tube/Valve radios, ( I used to have such a stash of these things when I was around 15 lol) they may be worth a few dollars to some of these people.
I find it hard to fathom how those caps make the guitar sound special. There is good reason we moved on from making paper capacitors sealed with wax. Amazing what nostalgia is worth.
Yeah lets go back to tape hiss and snap crackle pop of the vinyl .....convince me it sounds better. Right. Distortion is distortion and noise is noise. Last I looked at it on a oscilloscope.
