Home Forums GuitarPCB Build Support Tube Screaming Preamp Capacitor Question Reply To: Tube Screaming Preamp Capacitor Question


Jimmy – after having built several tube screamer circuits, some of them used all MLC caps in place of box films, I found no difference in the quality of sound between using box film or MLC caps. If you have MLC caps, but not the box films, it’s OK to proceed with the MLC caps if choose not to wait for a box film parts order. In my experience and opinion, one is not better than the other in this case. As long as they are the same value, meet the voltage rating requirement and have the same lead pitch.
