Fralin Tone Cap Family

 

 

Available Models

  • Fralin Magic Cap: Lindy’s favorite cap to boost the midrange of a shrill single-coil pickup. This value is extremely subtle and tends to work on bright pickups only.
  • .0022: Great for bridge pickups and bright sounding guitars, this cap will boost your midrange and tame a few of your high frequencies. It’s a little stronger tone than our Magic Cap.
  • .02mfd: This popular cap is very usable throughout the entire pickup line, and works well on Humbuckers and Single Coil pickups. Gibson and Fender use this cap as a standard for more modern guitars.
  • .05 / .047mfd: This popular cap works well with Humbuckers and Single Coils and goes pretty deep into the upper midrange. Use this cap if you want a warmer jazz tone from your pickups. You’ll see this cap used on vintage Fender Telecasters and Strats frequently.
  • 1mfd: This cap will provide the deepest roll-off available. You will find this value in vintage instruments. The roll-off of high frequencies will start quicker and go deeper into the midrange than the other capacitors offered.

1 Questions about Tone Caps

  1. I just bought one of your Fralin Magic Caps, I don’t see any markings on it and was wondering which side is the Positive and which is the Negative?

    1. Hey Kev, I spoke with Lindy about this and since guitar pickups are AC, polarity for the tone cap does not matter. In a guitar amp when the signal is DC in places, the polarity matters then. I hope that helps!
