    Hey,

    For vintage capacitors, what exactly is the difference between Circle "D" caps and RMC caps.... ( in terms of Fender 05uf caps).


    Thanks,


    Xenophon

    Pics or links or some other info would be useful.
    A quick google for RMC caps shows a ceramic cap which almost always sound poor. No idea what a circle D is to comment if it's better or worse.

    For a cost / benefit ratio Spraque 'Orange drops' or model 716P have always worked well for me.

    There is also a crap load of hype around vintage parts which almost always proves to be non-worthwhile IME
