Details

Brand new, made in the U.S.A. in the Luxe Radio workshop, to exact Vintage Specs. This is a perfect clone of the original Sprague Bumblebee capacitor found in the most collectible Gibson guitars made between 1956 and 1960. 

Each cap is hand wound on a 1932 Sprague Specialties Co. Winding Machine replica using exact vintage spec aluminum foil and paper film. They're hand soldered, hand cast in oven-proof thermoplastic, hot vacuum impregnated with pure castor oil and hand-painted. Includes vintage style amber tubing on each lead. 

Don't be fooled by other cheaper imitation "look-a-like" caps that aren't even paper and oil! Luxe capacitors are fresh from the time machine and authentic inside AND out. Ships in a plain box with no extras.

Made a great tone difference!

by Tom S. -

I bought a pr. of these .022 Luxe BB caps from Mojotone this Spring, just put them in my Epi LP. Wow, what a difference: the notes are bigger, rounder, with more overtones and definitely sound more vintage. I love them, best tone upgrade I've made besides an aluminum tailpiece which was notable, but the Luxe BB Caps made 3X that improvement, and I already had vintage caps in the LP! Get 'em.

I have read about the "Bumble Bee" old school vintage Capacitors that were used on Gibson and other Guitars from the 1950's.It has been said that these caps produced the real vintage sound from that era. Old stock piles and used ones have been for sale buy at your risk. I installed the .022 bumble bee on my 2002 Agile Les Paul Bridge pickup tone control circuit. The guitar has a natural 1970's vintage voice tone with alnico 4 magnet pickups. The Mojtone Bumble bee cap enhanced that sound. It is a great audiophile Tone capacitor. I would not limit it to 1950's vintage. It would do wonders on any modern pickup with alnico magnets.
