RDM Metallized Polypropylene Audio Capacitors (Red Drop Epoxy Dip)

Audio-optimized Film Capacitors

The Electrocube audio capacitor RDM Red Drop series includes rugged, non-inductively wound metallized audio capacitors. Manufactured with proprietary techniques, it offers high frequency operation, high current and low ESR in a miniature rugged package. The RDM capacitor series is part of a designated line of audio capacitors considered among the best capacitors for guitar and bass tones, specially designed and optimized for high-end audio applications subject to AC and pulsing signals. Designed at a size for optimal handling durability, audio engineers prefer the RDM series high- grade materials, design and manufacturing for professional, commercial stage and studio applications.

Available in non-inductively wound extended electrode construction and standard tin-coated, oxygen-free solid copper leads
