Jupiter Condenser Co. Vintage Tone yellow capacitors are ideal for use in both guitar tone controls and tube amplifiers. They offer great tone, vintage appearance, and modern reliability. Constructed by hand using 1960s techniques, they are manufactured using aluminum foil and mylar with a yellow outer tape wrapping. Comparable to the blue molded Ajax and yellow Astron capacitors used in the 1960s, the offer a clear vintage tone with creamy breakup. They also feature a vintage style stamped label, giving you not only an authentic sound, but a great look as well.

The outer foil side of the capacitor is marked, allowing for proper connection and low noise operation. Film and foil capacitors are constructed by winding up two pieces of foil with film in between as an insulator. The foil that ends up on the outside can be used to shield the capacitor from picking up noise from electromagnetic fields. The outside foil side of the capacitor should be connected to the lowest impedance circuit. In the case of being connected between two tube stages, the foil should be connected to the plate circuit of the first tube, which would be lower impedance than the grid circuit following the capacitor. In a guitar, the outside foil end should be connected to ground.
