SoZo's Yellow Mustard line of polyester film tube amp capacitors have been thoroughly tested by LA’s best tube amp builders. They are handmade to exact vintage specs, and beat everything available, even in high gain situations.
After years of painstaking research and development, in 2003 SoZo Amplification began manufacturing the SoZo Mustard Cap™ capacitors, which quickly caught on among discriminating musicians and amp designers. Now, hundreds of thousands of capacitors later, SoZo has engineered capacitor product lines optimized for different products, including amps by Marshall™, Fender®, Vox®, HiWatt, and others, as well as professional sound gear from Neve, API, Neumann, Universal Audio, Urei, and virtually any quality gear from the 1950s on.
These caps are successful recreations of the originals and are superbly built and excellent-sounding caps. When one considers the audio signal passes through as many as ten capacitors before exiting the amplifier, you can see how these components play an extremely large role in the tone of the amplifier.
Sold individually. Choose capacitance from options.
*Please note: 0.68uF option is only rated for 200V.
Tech's notes: "No, these are not custom capacitors made for Next Gen. The product name is purely coincidental. Anyways, these are THE caps to use in your amp builds. They are on the bigger side but not too big, so they can be used in guitars as well."

I got the 0.0022 uF capacitor and the tone knob of my Telecaster is way more usable with the bridge pickup, where it should make a difference.
It just kills the ice picky high end. I can even get a decent tone with my tone knob all the way off.
