The Fralin Magic Cap is a .0015 Capacitor that Lindy swears by. When activated, your plain strings will sound thicker and larger – immediately. This Cap is perfect for anyone looking to add a bit more functionality to their guitar, but doesn’t need a ton of highs rolled off.

The “Magic Cap” is simple: It rolls off just the “shrill” tone that comes with a Bridge Pickup of your Strat or Tele. It’s perfect for those who want to thicken up or darken their tone just a tad when playing solo notes, or chords. The Magic Cap won’t make a drastic difference in tone, rather, add more functionality to a common problem with guitars.

    .022uF is about 10X more than you need….total darkness/mud, with Magic Cap’s you can reach down and just roll the Tone Knob all the way On and like “Magic” you get the all the capacitance you need!

    So I just started adding Magic Caps to SPST Switches on many of my guitars….who needs a Potentiometer when just “turning it on” is really all you need, especially when playing live. They are after all very musical and very subtle.

    Preliminary Review. This is a subtle tone device but once I try it in a full band environment I think I’m really going to dig it. I find standard .022 tone filters don’t deliver what I need. I’ll follow up after more time with it.

    Cool, maybe with other pots. Currently, I use Emerson CTS pots
    Cool, big difference in tone control for me little strange so I change on 0.47 Sprague

    Extraordinary cap! The best tone that can be achieved in a Strat bridge pickup.

    It is magic
    I am not sure how it works, but it does as advertised, I play with it fully on most of the time

    Took the ice pick out of my ear!
    Super impressed with this little cap. With the stock capacitor, anything below 5 on the tone knob was muffled. Also the bridge pick up was pretty harsh. The fralin magic cap fixed both issues and I now have a useable tone sweep throughout.

    Went to the shop and picked up a few caps. They work great and give me great tone control. Also, the people there are super. They helped me with what I had ordered. These people produce a great product and are devoted to producing the best pickups they can. I will go out of my way in the future to buy from them.

    Great little addition to my guitar. It’s a very nice cap for what it does. It is a very subtle change that isn’t for everyone but if you want subtlety it’s fantastic.

    I’m new to the DIY tweeking on guitars. I have a project “Tele/Partscaster” that I experiment with. I have done everything myself on it from finding and combining neck & body/drilled the headstock for upgrade tuners/made a new nut/copper lined body/and complete setup of string height/neck & bridge pickups/saddles/intonation etc. I put the Lindy Fralin “Magic Cap” in parallel with a CDE225P 473K “Orange Drop Cap” and really love the sound with my new Lindy Fralin “Blues Specials” pickups. I really don’t know what the technical effect of running these 2 caps in parallel does, but the guitar sure sounds sweet at any rate. Love my Lindy Fralin upgrades. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Lindy Fralin products because, the support and interest in customer satisfaction is second to none. I’m a very happy camper!!
