Paper (Kraft) and Foil Type AM Retro Capacitors

Audio-optimized Film Capacitors

Proudly made in the U.S., the Electrocube Type AM Retro series offers authentic, old-style soft sound. Audio engineers prefer its original vintage tones for guitars and amplifiers. The paper, oil-filled construction creates its unique high performance and long life characteristics. Available in a wide range of sizes and configurations, the Type AM Retro series is part of a designated line of capacitors, specially optimized for the high-end audio industry using design and manufacturing techniques proprietary to Electrocube.

Specifications
