Everyone wants to know what you hear different about this capacitor type. I have compared it to others - in my opinion it is maybe slightly more transparent sounding than an orange drop, but not as brittle sounding as mylar or ceramic. But man are we spitting hairs because it totally depends on everything else in you rig and even then the diff may be in the imagination. You can't go wrong tryin" one.
Sounds great. Works well throughout entire range of pot. Great for the money
The "Black Bee" 0.022 uF paper in oil (PIO) capacitor from Allparts is a nice upgrade from standard "gumdrop" or ceramic capacitors common in many stock guitars. Paired with good pots, the Black Bee has a warm, vintage tone for a reasonable price. Likewise, it's a bit smaller in length (ca. 19 mm) than many other PIOs and fits nicely in tight control cavities. I highly recommend this capacitor for price and fit.
