Fender Pure Vintage Blue .001uF 600V Mylar, Wax And Tin Foil Signal Capacitor For '60s Amps 7705610000

Blue Astron caps were used in early- to mid-’60s blonde, brown and black Fender amps (actual transition from the yellow caps occurred around 1962). Made with Mylar, tin foil and a touch of wax, “Blues” evoke sweet Fender “blackface” tone—clear highs, warm mids and deep, clean bass. The Fender Blues are 'reverse-engineered and internally replicated capacitors great for vintage restoration, modification or new amp builds. Mix and matchable with other capacitor types. I measured 1.258" long, .516 diameter, tinned leads are each approximately 2" long. Brand New. Genuine Fender 7705610000. UPC 885978549122.
Fender amps of the ’50s and ’60s have become the benchmark not only for modern guitar amplifier design, but for great tone too. These landmark circuit designs are part of a recipe for terrific tone, and, as with any good recipe, carefully chosen ingredients can turn something already inherently great into something truly magical. Intentional or not, part of the subtle tonal magic and nuance of vintage Fender amps were the everyday capacitors used in them.
