Fender Pure Vintage 'Red' Amp Capacitor .005uF @ 600V
Fender Pure Vintage Red Amp Capacitor .005uF @ 600V
Fender Pure Vintage Red Cap (early '50s replica Red Astron)
The Red Astron was used in Fender's Tweed amps in the early fifties and is the most imitated capacitor out there. These capacitors produce a characteristic rough-and-tumble tone. They are made of kraft paper, aluminium foil and wax. The capacitors have a delightfully smooth and clear treble and bass sound, while the mids sound relatively aggressive and more complex. They are perfect for grungy rhythms and singing solos.
Fender Pure Vintage Amplifier Capacitors
Fender amps from the '50s and '60s are still immensely popular, not because of their design per se, but because of their distinctive sound. The electronics inside these amps are a great contributing factor to their distinctive sound. Whether purposely or not, the capacitors that were used at the time are largely responsible for the familiar Fender sound of the fifties and sixties. Until recently, these capacitors were no longer made - although other manufacturers have tried to imitate them on more then one occasion. Now, over fifty years later, you can once again purchase the original capacitors! The perfect replacement part to repair or modify vintage amplifiers. Can of course also be used to build a new amplifier. Select one or several capacitor types for your ideal personal sound.
Remarques et conseils sur ce produit
- Never replace the capacitor with a lower-voltage model, as this may cause trouble. Using a capacitor with a higher voltage is possible in many cases, however.
