    I was just wondering are Mallory 150 caps any good.
    I thought of put the in my plus top. Can't afford bumble bees
    right now. Would like some input on this. Thanks

    Mallory's are good if you want a brighter, and tighter more brilliant tone. I like them in darker sounding guitars. If you want a warm vintage sound, I'd go for something else. Luxe has some paper in oil stuff a lot cheaper then the original bumble bees.

    Mallorys are good in amps but for tone caps in your guitar I would try something different. What about those Soviet poly caps 0.022 that Jonesy has? They are very affordable and they sound very good too.
