Set of New Old Stock Russian Military Surplus K40N-2a - 0.015 uf & 0.022 uF/400V Capacitors. Dimensions L - .815" X D - .435"
The K40N-2's are high quality capacitors made for military. The conductor is aluminum foil and the dielectric is oil saturated paper, glass sealed in a metal body. These capacitors provide excellent sonic characteristics, with a high tolerance in a wide temperature range. These are comparable in construction and performance to the Russian K40Y-9's, and slightly less expensive. These have the non-conductive coating, which is why they are red rather than silver. Don't let their stubby red appearance fool you. These are great sounding caps at a little over half the price of the K40Y-9's
.022 is common value in Gibson and Gibson-style humbucker equipped guitars. .015 is used in the neck position to retain more highs when you roll off tone and/or volume.
