i think i shall introduce a range of "mystics vintage caps"..
for $24.95 you get:
a) one real good capacitor of "chosen" value. Value provided is 30%-50% than selected, to simulate loss of charge retention
b) a 10-22M randomly selected resistor to stick in parallel to simulate the leakage current and hence the vintage tone
c) a 50R resistor to stick in series, to simulate increase in series resistance
d) 1/4 tsp of molasses, to simulate the vintage goop creeping out of the foil cap.
I need distributors..note you must own your own molasses as it doesnt travel well in envelopes.
