What's the deal with the ****bay tone cap upgrades?

Does this do anything? you get a new cap for your tone and one for your vol pot. what's the point of these?

Re: What's the deal with the ****bay tone cap upgrades?

dont buy the ones on eb4y, you can save $5 by going to you local electronics store and buying them there. or you can save by buying them at guitarpartsdepot.com which has the sprague caps cheaper than that "package" on eb4y.

oh yea and, the capacitor you put on your tone is basically how much treble you can roll off. the larger the number, the darker you can make your sound. the cap you put on your volume pot helps you save treble as you roll off on the volume. without it, rolling off on the volume can sound like you're rolling off on your tone too, which isn't necessarily bad.
