IIRC, the yellows are aluminum foil and mylar and the reds are tin foil and mylar. I have reds on a 5E3 board right here that Clark built me but I haven't found time to drop it in a chassis yet.If I remember correctly, the Red Capacitors that Jupiter sells are tin foil & polyester, not bees wax.
try parts connexion. I got mine thereI was sent one by NewOldSounds because the sent their last .1uf to the wrong address. The thing is really big. Much larger than the yellow .1uf. I wish it was in a situation where I could compare it with a yellow but there is no way in hell I am dealing with NewOldSounds again after they screwed up 3 orders in a row and looks like a 4th and I am always leery about buying from suppliers that don't have an online inventory so I am not sure where to get my Jupiters right now. But I digress.
Some description, or comparison to caps we already know, like Sozo, fer instance?
What's the hot setup for replacing the old Blue Molded caps- just use the Sozo? I have a '61 Magnatone 210 and I want to recap it but I would hate to change the sound- it's freakin' amazing! All original, but very quiet, too.Sure...
Mallory 150's...equal in warmth but the Jupitor's had a tad more clarity (this was of importance when driving the tone section wide open)
Mod Oil Filled...too much clarity lacking the warmth of the Mallory's and Jupitor's
Mojotone's Dijon's...rawer than the both the Mallory's and Jupitor's but much warmer than the Mod's
Mojotone's Vitamin T's...sounded exactly like the Mod Oil Filled
NOS Aerovox's...very close to the Mallory 150's...and not enough in my stock to seriously consider them, but I tried them all the same
Sozo Blue Molded's...probably the closest to the Jupitor's than any...in a side by side comp of two proto amps, no one could tell the difference if they didn't know which amp had what...this couldn't be said of the other caps..
Sozo Standard Mustard's...couldn't really tell the difference between them and the Aerovox's/Mallory's in the side by side's as well
Vishay/Sprague 715P Orange Drops...too much clarity..far more than the oil filled caps
Of course, as in all things tone related, the opinions were subjective to the individual tester and the amp (or guitar) the caps are being used in. The Jupitor Red's worked best for what Mick (Jones) and I were looking for in the tone section of the HeadKnocker amp. Would I use an alternative? You bet...the Sozo Blue Molded units hands down. Also, keep in mind that the listings/comparisons above come from my proto test notes...hope it helps some
If the caps aren't (very far) off spec/leaking....I suggest leaving them alone, otherwise go for the Blue Sozo's. I've seen a ton of those old blue's that weren't more than 1% off spec...however, when they go....they goWhat's the hot setup for replacing the old Blue Molded caps- just use the Sozo?

If it is very quiet, don't recap it!! Address the Electrolytic Filter Caps only. I ruined a 66 Bassman early on because I thought I needed to replace all of the old caps. I pulled all of the blue moldeds and replaced them with the cheap orange drops. Killed the vibe of the amp.What's the hot setup for replacing the old Blue Molded caps- just use the Sozo?
