100nF allows for the full frequency of a standard tuned Bass Guitar which wouldn’t start rolling off until after the low E. I use a 22n in some applications for 6 string guitar in my projects for coupling capacitors so I have a tight bottom end (value depends on the circuit and variables) with no unwanted low artifacts sneaking through. That said if you play a 5 string Bass and want to make sure to knock the beer bottles off the tables use a 220nF in place of 100nF or put it on a switch.
