Bare Knuckle / Jupiter Premium Tone Vitamin Q 0.022 uF Oil Capacitor

Maximum quantity available reached.

The latest evolution and most comprehensive range yet of Bare Knuckle's premium paper in oil tone capacitors.

Following exhaustive testing, BKP has developed a range of custom spec capacitors with Jupiter Condenser in the USA, which cover everything that players need from a great tone cap.

All models produce a clear, defined response, right through the full range of your tone control and feature aluminium foil construction with silver lead-outs, encased in a hermetically sealed capsule for dependable performance.

For maximum tonal variety, BKP now offers 2 options for the dielectric fluid (oil) inside the capacitor, yielding 2 subtly different tonal flavours:

Vitamin Q - a synthetic oil which results in a slightly brighter overall tone, with a more notched, wah-like character when rolled back. This version is most like the previous versions of Bare Knuckle caps, especially the older Jensen models

Mineral oil - a more rounded and warm character, with a smoother, even sound when rolled right back

Each type is available in three capacitance variants:

0.047µF a deeper, darker response, best suited to single coils and pairing with a 280k tone pot

0.022µF for a great all-round response

0.015µF for a slightly brighter response, great for retaining clarity on a neck tone control
