FDP Forum / Fender Amps: Vintage (before 1985) / ARS vs. F&T Capacitors


USA / Sesame St.

May 16th, 2017 06:57 AM   Edit   Profile  

I read were this amp service recently decided to switch from F&T to ARS capacitors. They said the ARS capacitors outperform F&T capacitors with a lower ESR, a higher temperature rating of 105c.

I've had good luck with the F&T just wondering if ARS are better quality.

Anyone have any experience with the ARS?

I need to recap a '73 JMP50, and I've been looking at the ARS brand canister caps.

I'd like to hear other opinions on them also.

F&T's have worked very well for me.
