V-CAP TFTF TEFLON® FILM & FOILL

These are the finest caps you can put into a guitar. The V-Cap TFTF Teflon® film and tin foil audiophile capacitors are the result of an extensive research and development project by a team of world-renowned experts in electrical engineering, chemistry, materials science, and some of the top minds (and "ears") in the audio industry. These experts were commissioned to help design, build, and evaluate a "cost-no-object" capacitor for reference-grade audiophile applications. The resulting series of proprietary materials and processes has produced one of the most extraordinary, musical capacitors ever made. V-Caps are NOT a “rebrand” or relabeling of an already existing product, but a unique new capacitor design that has been meticulously engineered and handcrafted in the U.S.A. Andy Rothstein is featured on the VH Audio website here with some sound samples.
