Fender amps of the ™50s and ™60s have become the benchmark not only for modern guitar amplifier design, but for great tone too. These landmark circuit designs are part of a recipe for terrific tone, and, as with any good recipe, carefully chosen ingredients can turn something already inherently great into something truly magical. Intentional or not, part of the subtle tonal magic and nuance of vintage Fender amps were the everyday capacitors used in them.
Blue Ajax caps were used in early- to mid-™60s blonde, brown and black Fender amps (actual transition from the yellow caps occurred around 1962). Made with Mylar, tin foil and a touch of wax, "Blues" evoke sweet Fender "blackface" tone - clear highs, warm mids and deep, clean bass.
