TAD Capacitor 2.2nF 630VDC Mustard

Capacitor

  • 2.2 nF (0.0022 uF)
  • The low capacitance results in a higher low-pass frequency with a more subtle treble attenuation in electric guitar tone controls
  • Dimensions (LxBxØ): 22 x 7.5 x 0.8 mm

Does the job
22.10.2015
Caps rated this low are a little tricky to find. I bought this to go in a Squier Bass VI for the strangle switch...it wasn't a perfect match to the factory specs and cut too much bass. So I ended up not using it, but that's got nothing to do with the product itself. Cheap, easy to work with, good quality, and effective.

Why a 2.2nF Condensator?
padrake, 07.01.2017
I feel compelled to do some education here.

A 2.2nF capacitor is too small for a Tonblende (Lo pass, so heights) and too large for the Treble Bleed. For the Tonbrende values ??between 22nF and 47nF are used. For the Treble Bleed one goes (with resistance of 100 to 300kOhm in series or parallel) up to 1nF.

Uh, what should I do now with 2.2nF?
The good Leo has found out decades ago that you could even filter out the lower frequencies (bass) from the signal path. (What should bring that in a Strt, I dare to doubt)

Well, I, as an old double-coil (humbucker) player, had long felt the need to reduce the mud a bit and that right on the guitar.
The solution:

Take a 500kOhm reverse log pot and solder it in parallel with a 2.2nF capacitor after the classic tone pot and BEFORE the volume pot into the signal path. The effect can be increased by reducing the volume pot to 250kOhm. Sure, you lose about 2dB resonance peak, but you become a Stratistenschreck.

Conclusion:
If you have a little time and leisure, you should deal with this topic once.

PS If you have problems finding a reverse log 500kOhm poti, you can take a normal log poti and use it "wrong" around. The only stupid thing is that you "right" around the basses are quieter.

@ Thomann: Take the CTS Lefthand Potis into the program, then it makes sense to sell a 2.2nF C :)
