The BlueMolded line of capacitors are retrofits for Astron or Blue Molded caps used in vintage tweed, brown, and blackface Fenders®. These capacitors amazingly capture vintage Fender® tones of the Blackface era, and the famous 1959 tweed 5F6-A Bassman era which is so musical and good, Marshall™ modeled their amps after them!

After years of painstaking research and development, in 2003 SoZo Amplification began manufacturing the SoZo Mustard Cap™ capacitors, which quickly caught on among discriminating musicians and amp designers. Now, hundreds of thousands of capacitors later, SoZo has engineered capacitor product lines optimized for different products, including amps by Marshall™, Fender®, Vox®, HiWatt, and others, as well as professional sound gear from Neve, API, Neumann, Universal Audio, Urei, and virtually any quality gear from the 1950s on.

These caps are successful recreations of the originals and are superbly built and excellent-sounding caps. When one considers the audio signal passes through as many as ten capacitors before exiting the amplifier, you can see how these components play an extremely large role in the tone of the amplifier.

I've been using Sozo caps in all my personal builds and harp mods for others since about 2004. And recently a very good blues harp player buddy of mine asked me to swap out all the original Yellow Astron tone caps in his REAL 59' Bassman...and I said whomwever put those OD's in the 1st stage they're coming out. So I used 3 Yellow Next Gen Sozo and 5 Blue Molded Sozos and he said, "Man I've had this amp for over 30 years and it's never sounded this good." They just pass the low end with a rich dynamic tone and still retain the punch when a lot of other caps get flat or get too bright. For harp I won't use any other cap.

I use SOZO Blue in all my Marshall style builds. They are simply the best sounding for coupling caps. - May 25th, 2018
