CE Distribution and SoZoTM 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.

SoZo Capacitors – We Make Capacitors for Music

Mainstream capacitors are designed to be as small as possible, and are engineered for multiple purposes and efficient manufacturing.

Unfortunately, in music gear such as amplifiers, preamps, mixing boards, microphones, compressors, equalizers, outboard effects, and hi-fi equipment, these capacitors don’t sound good.

Vintage capacitors are much better for music applications because they were engineered for sound and actually SOUND much better – they are one of the main reasons why vintage amplifiers are so prized and sought-after.

After years of painstaking research and development, in 2003 SoZo Amplification began manufacturing the SoZo Mustard Cap™ capacitors, which quickly caught on among discriminating musicians and amp designers. Now, hundreds of thousands of capacitors later, SoZo has engineered capacitor product lines optimized for different products, including amps by Marshall, Fender, Vox, HiWatt, and others, as well as professional sound gear from Neve, API, Neumann, Universal Audio, Urei, and virtually any quality gear from the 1950’s on.

SoZo Capacitors are used by:

  • The world’s best amp builders and designers
  • DIY amplifer enthusiasts
  • DIY tube audio aficionados
  • Guitarists looking for a specific tone
