Guitar Capacitor Types Matter! Here Is The Proof | Guitar Tweakz



Published
#guitarwirings #guitarplayer
I made a video where I compared a vintage style paper-in-oil capacitor with an orange drop. They sounded different. Many of you complained that I didn't measure the two caps in that video. Well, it's time to do that and also explain why I'm only doing it now.
I also have "one more thing" to show you, so stick around and don't skip the fun part. :)
Enjoy Guitar Tweakz!

** Why the Anzeige (=Ad) message? **
According to german laws everyone has to mark their videos as advertisements as soon as there's a single "subject relevant" product, tag or link in it. Even if you didn't get paid for making that video. Sounds confusing and it really doesn't help the viewer to see which is a paid review and which isn't.
--- The line of truth: Is this actually a paid review? No it isn't but I'm using affilite links which help to fund this channel. (I update this line for every video).
