    Default cap value question

    what would the proper cap value be for:

    300k audio taper tone pot +

    500k audio taper vol pot...

    .22?

    with an sh-15 alt 8 bridge pickup?

    The capacitor value is a matter of preference. .022 would be a good starting point.

    .022.

    .010 if you want to retain a bit more of the upper mids as the tone is rolled down.
