Produktbild We are very happy to announce a new electrolytic:
The KON96070 is our first triple 50+50+50 uF electrolytic with 550V working / 600V surge.
And all this in a very compact can of just 35*45mm (diam * height)
This is a real troubleshooter to be used in compact amps.
You can also use it to replace three-prong twistlocks for which no proper replacement
was available - until now, for example: 30+30+30 to 60+60+60 uF at 350-550V


For product details please visit our electrolytics catalog page.

Warehouse cleanup !!!
We have lots and lots of tube-radiochassis here, most of them from Germany and most of them from the 1950s.
It would be a real shame to trash them so they are waiting for the soldering iron.
There are plenty of useful and valuable parts on them:
- The mains transformer, most of those are tapped primary and can be used everywhere
- sockets, use the chassis for your own projects and experiments, you save a lot of hardware work. - The variable capacitor, a valuable and more-and-more hard to find part and - plenty of small parts, old style resistors, capacitors, binding posts, switches, the IF-filters etc.
Those chassis are a bargain for anybody who just started with tubes as hobby.
The price is very very special: EUR 5,- / 5,95 each ( net 7 incl. VAT)
The picture is showing examples of chassis, the actually supplied chassis may look a bit different.
Please enquire for shipping costs.

New types of interesting electrolytics made by FTCap.
