It is common practice for amp techs to replace all of the electrolytic capacitors in an amp every ten years or so.

These caps perform two duties.

  • The filter caps literally filter the high voltage used by your amplifier.  Good fresh filter caps help reduce hum and background noise.
  • They also keep your bottom end response tight.

The electrolytic bypass caps in the preamp determine the operating & tonal characteristics of the preamp tubes.

These caps wear out & drift over time.  These caps can also dry up & malfunction (especially when left unused).  This can cause serious damage to your amplifier.
