    NEW! - SoZo SILVER MICA CAPACITORS

    [​IMG]

    CE Distribution and SoZo Capacitors are pleased to announce the immediate release of the new SoZo Silver Mica capacitors. This new capacitor line offers superior musicality and linearity and are modeled after the well sought out vintage picofarad capacitors of yesteryear. These custom designed capacitors have the same electrical characteristics and sound of the ones from the past.

    The characteristics of SoZo silver micas are clear, smooth, vocal, clean and linear top end. SoZo caps are smooth without forward treble, i.e., the top end voicing does not add the treble harshness like standard silver mica caps tend to do. Also, standard silver mica caps often have excess energy and ringing in the out-of-band audio frequencies which creates a disconnected strident metallic high end in any amplifier circuit. The SoZo design eliminates this excess energy and ringing in the out-of-band audio frequencies; therefore, with the SoZo caps, the treble does not detach from the fundamental note and does not create sibilance like modern components do.

    In every audition performed, the new SoZo silver mica capacitors were the preferred hi- frequency component in every audio application - equalizers, microphones, or guitar amplifiers - due to their superior musicality and linearity. These SoZo caps will delight OEM, D.I.Y., restoration, and hobbyist builders worldwide.

    CE Distribution is the exclusive worldwide distributer for SoZo Capacitors and is the leader in wholesale distribution of parts for guitars and amplifiers. CE Distribution is known for quality, availability, and excellent customer service.

    No spec sheets...again.
    If you are going to sell parts like that, you need to post the manufacturer specification sheets.
    Product Measurements?
    That's not what we want, we want the technical facts.
    ANY part which is sold for a tube amp: needs to have the specifications, all of them, from the manufacturer. CED seems to have (ongoing) problems understanding this.
    No I am not buying any, until I see the spec sheets.
    This is the problem with the CED catalog: it lacks the information I need, to make good buying decisions.

    In fact any part I buy from Sozo, I wanna see a full spec sheet.
    You want me to buy Sozo? Show me the spec sheets.

    So I guess its safe to assume you need the spec sheets...LOL!









    Just messin' with you Bro! Doesn't Sozo make excellent components? It seems like so many people rave about Sozo?!. Just wondering as I have never bought any Sozo but I sure see a lot of adds and positive comments about them.

    They wanna sell me a single SM cap for $9.
    What's so great about it?
    ALL legitimate electronics components have manufacturers specification sheets. There is no exception.

    I am merely sick and tired of vendors who hide the specifications.

    Look it up "where?"
    the specifications are hidden.

    Interesting that nobody from CED has responded....:lol:

    We're not putting any more "mystery components" in our amps.

    Country of origin?
    Materials origin?
    ROHS compliant?
    Conflict materials statement?
    Wash/solvent resistance?
    Drawing/dimensions of component?
    Lead length?
    Lead gauge?
    Lead plating?
    Lead materials?
    Temperature stability in PPM?
    Tolerance pf of component?
    Rated stability in Hours?
    Coating material and rating?
    Shock / vibration rating?
    Q of capacitor?
    Operating Temperature ratings?
    Solder temperature . time ratings?

    No specs = no sale.

    After having invested $$ in a bag full of FAKE Cliff jacks....:pissed:
    our curiosity grows ever-stronger on a daily basis.

    This is amp manufacturers use well known parts you can buy at any parts warehouse with all those specifications listed in the search engine, not even having to go to the product page.

    They seem oriented towards amateurs who want to replace good working parts with "upgrade" parts for $$$$.

    I guess if I was going to spend $9 on a pf cap that should cost $0.20, I'd want specs too.

    Ever since I was burned w/ fake cliff jacks....I am suspicious.

    "IS" this the greatest tone cap in the world? :applause::applause::applause: If so, I will order several !!!
    But first...please show me the facts.

    What is "Sozo?"
    Where is it made, and what's it made out of?

    "...The SoZo design eliminates this excess energy and ringing in the out-of-band audio frequencies..."

    OK, how does it do that? (are you saying that the Q of cap is: 10?)

    Conflict Materials Statement:
    This shows that the materials did not come from a mine where people get paid 3 cents an hour.
    You understand why i want to know that?

    Well, I guess we all got an answer. Still would be nice to have a data sheet available on line.

    Like having a data sheet will protect you from buying fake parts. :D

    lmao. the naivety is astounding.

    The data sheet does protect you from knock off parts...when all the information / certifications / origin is printed on it.
    (we still don't have a complete data sheet)

    yes, because companies trying to sell fake parts have no idea how to fake a certificate of authenticity. I'm so glad they haven't figured that out yet.

    I normally dislike silver mica caps for all those listed reasons. They tell it like I hear it.

    I'd buy Sozo poly caps again and again b/c they've improved the tone/timbre of every amp I've put them in to some degree... and have never failed. Unlike another popular poly cap name brand I shalt not mention.

    But AMS is spot on here.... I read data sheets til' I'm exhausted sometimes. You gotta know the specs to make an informed decision when I comes to the art of amp building.
