K40Y-9 0.015uF (15nF) 400V PIO (Paper In Oil) tone capacitor NOS
K40Y-9 0.015uF 400V PIO (paper in oil) capacitor
This value works very well with a neck humbucker on a Les Paul for that 'woman' tone alongside the customary 22nF cap for the Bridge tone.
Also works great with a stacked humbucker for the neck pickup in a Stratocaster.
These are also sought after for their warm clear sound, free of high-frequency noise of digital-to-analogue converter.
In my opinion these are a perfect match for Pro CTS pots and I have tried many different capacitors in my own guitars in the past. You will find them in all our pre-wired kits.
•Vintage Paper - Foil capacitors. Capacitance provided by roll of two similar strips of pure aluminum foil (NOT METALLISED PAPER, which are separated by two similar strips of oil-saturated paper. (Paper-Foil-Paper-Foil structure)
•Contain Silver for lower impedance!!!
•The body is metal, with glass sealed isolators at the pins.
•Extra photo shows interior construction of capacitor
