    Tone/Volume Caps

    I'm looking at these:

    STEWMAC.COM : Capacitors

    And this:



    I have a 331 for the volume, but not a 223 for the tone, and I can't find via Google-fu what the 223 is even rated for. With passives and a 500k pot, should I be good to go with the 0.050mf from StewMac?

    Edit, and While I'm at it, am I better off going with the 0.001mf on the volume pot?

    Tone or volume?

    Edit: Is that a SM part #? Google finds zippo.

    Slightly larger selection of caps:

    Parts-Express.com - Capacitor Look-Up: Simply Enter The Capacitance Value

    Also check out Mouser Electronics.
    They have frickin' EVERYTHING (except the switches I was looking for...that apparently don't exist....even in China...).

    Also....
    At the last Winter NAMM I was at, dealers wouldn't stop jacking off to these:
    022 inchOrange Drop inch Capacitors | Allparts.com

    They're the 'real deal', apparently.
    AllParts also has real oil/paper caps and the original "bumble bee" caps ($60 each!).

    Thanks buddy. For 8 bucks I'll try the ODs, I s'pose. Eric, did you do a direct swap, and if so, did you actually notice a difference? For an ~800% markup, they'd better make my sweep picking better too.
