Hi everyone,

I noticed that my Ceriatone HC-30 comes with Mallory and they sound great with the Mallory. But I'm a big fan of guitar & effect mod and I love the Sprague orange drops.  I also see that some of Ceriatone clones comes with Sprague 716Ps while the others Mallory.(Is there a reason for that?)  I'm not an expert in tube amp that's why I ordered mine built and shipped by NIK.(to save myself from being electricuted) But does anyone out there could give me a pointer if the C-30 would sound better with the Mallory or Sprague Cap? I am also dying to try the new Auricap but they are expensive.

Thanks,
toneman.

I would be shocked if you notice any difference in tone between the good quality brands of caps.

Basically they either work or they don't.

I agree with TimD, I think the difference will be more phsycological than it will be audible. Don't be fooled by your own conviction in justifying significant expense in replacing components, because you will surely tell yourself that the investment does sound better .... are you really sure it does?
