CapacitorsCapacitors are passive devices that are used in almost all electrical circuits for rectification, coupling and tuning. Also known as condensers, a capacitor is simply two electrical conductors separated by an insulating layer called a dielectric. The conductors are usually thin layers of aluminum foil, while the dielectric can be made up of many materials including paper, mylar, polypropylene, ceramic, mica, and even air. Electrolytic capacitors have a dielectric of aluminum oxide which is formed through the application of voltage after the capacitor is assembled. Characteristics of different capacitors are determined by not only the material used for the conductors and dielectric, but also by the thickness and physical spacing of the components.
Speakers & ComponentsSpeakers. The last opportunity to modify your tone. Unlike hi-fi speakers which attempt to create sounds that are true to the musical source fed them, guitar speakers impart their own tone. Your amp/cabinet pretty much determines three things about what speaker to select; speaker size, impedance and power rating. (See our tech corner article on Speaker Impedance, Power Handling and Wiring). But the tone is up to you! Speaker replacement is probably the easiest mod you can perform.
Capacitor - MusiCap, 100V, Film & Foil Polypropylene
Critical loudspeaker crossovers deserve to have a transparent product specific to the application. Speaker MusiCaps, with their thicker leads, are a revelation in well-designed crossover networks. While a fully MusiCap-ed crossover is supreme, just installing MusiCaps in the tweeter circuit will reveal much additional detail and nuance. Many prominent high-end loudspeaker manufacturers have been using MusiCaps in their top models for years.

Capacitor - 1500V, .1µF, Oil
Non-inductive polyester and oil caps, these film capacitors use oil-soaked polyester as di-electric material and are smooth and natural in sound.
Capacitor - Peavey, 55V, 4700µF, Axial Lead
Peavey 4700 µF @ 55V polarized electrolytic capacitor with axial leads. 7/8" diameter x 2" length.
Bell Cover - Jensen Blackbird Speakers
Bell cover for 10" Blackbird and 12" Blackbird speakers.
Speaker - Eminence®, 12", Pete Anderson HempDog, 150W, 8Ω
Multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning producer/guitarist Pete Anderson wanted to combine the tonal characteristics from two of his favorite Eminence speakers into a single 12” model. The HempDog 12 borrows the warmth from the Cannabis Rex, and the neutral, clear tone from the Legend EM12.

Magnet - Peavey, replacement for Scorpion
Replacement magnet for the Peavey Scorpion speaker.
Antenna Coil - for Tube Radios
Will replace broadcast band coils in any tube type radio. Adjustable inductance for perfect tracking. Mount on bus wire leads or in 5/16" hole for pine board mounting. Coils are similar to Miller numbers that correspond.
- Primary coil inductance: 2mH
- Secondary coil inductance: 191uH
Coil - Miniature adjustable coil, 70, oscillator
Coil is similar to Miller number 70-OSC oscillator coil. Their small physical size and the fact that they can be adjusted to the inductance required make these coils ideally suited for replacement in broadcast band receivers. The 70 Oscillator coil has a primary and a tapped secondary. These coils are for use in all common padded and unpadded oscillator circuits.
Coil - Miniature adjustable coil, 70, R.F. stage
Coil is similar to Miller number 70-RF. Coil is similar to Miller number 70-RF R.F. stage coil. Their small physical size and the fact that they can be adjusted to the inductance required make these coils ideally suited for replacement in broadcast band receivers. The R.F. coils have high impedance primaries and wire wound secondaries for use with any variable condenser having a maximum capacity between 250 and 450 mmf. These coils are for use in all common padded and unpadded oscillator circuits.
Form - Ceramic, 2-½" x ½" Diameter, 6-32 Threads
Use as a standoff, coil/choke form, or antenna coil.
