Orange Drop Signal Cap Upgrade Kits
Sprague Orange Drops are high quality signal caps to upgrade your vintage silverface Fender. Crisp, clean, & snappy. Great caps for more of a clean, modern, or country sound. Pure clear tone with plenty of sustain. We prefer the 150M series for more of a vintage sound and sweeter breakup, but Orange Drops are an old standard and some folks just LOVE ‘em! We use the higher quality polyester Orange Drops for warmer, smoother tone (as opposed to the cheaper, more commonly seen polypropelyne 715 series Orange Drops).
These caps are recommended as upgrades for silverface Fender amps, or replacements for blackface amps if the original blue 'molded' caps are missing. We do not at this time offer signal cap kits for tweed or brownface amps. Signal caps for Tweed and Brownface amps need to be ordered a la carte - as singles, and Jupiters are recommended for 'closest to original' sounding replacements in the Tweed, Brownface, and Blackface amps.
If you want to add the TWEED PREAMP mod to the first channel of your two channel amp, just add the 'SUB TWEED PREAMP MOD' to your order for $5! This gives you the parts (caps, resistors and instructions) to install the tweed preamp INSTEAD of the stock components for your first channel! Instructions for adding 'reverb in both channels' is also included! This will be for the 'normal channel' in most two channel amps, and the BASS channel in Bassman amps!
