Electrolytic caps perform better when operated near their rated WORKING voltage.
By the time those caps ever see 10 Volts... they'll be the last concern on your list.
And yet the reissue uses 50V. Must sound like trash.
Maybe Wally or Celeste might have a better idea... I are an engineer... PWM power supplies... big motor drives... not a tube god. The only reason I could see for going overboard on cap voltage is failure modes of the tube... OR to save $$ and reduce inventory.
My point in my first reply is that "more is not better" when it comes to cap voltage.
Now i see the point, you are trolling, trying to put words in other peoples mouths. Do you believe that Fender is the be all that ends all? Do you believe they build amps that can not be improved in some way? You believe that amp innovation and experimentation is moot because Fender has done it all perfectly in the past?
What words am I putting in anyone's mouth? I do not know why Fender decides to put a capacitor ten times the voltage ratio than need be in their amps. I am sure Fender is not the end all, be all of amplifier designers, but they do have the resources and hopefully the knowledgeable staff to determine if they are using the right voltage rating of capacitor. Maybe a high voltage cap in those positions helps with the tone? I am new at this, they are not.
I wonder if there is a Mod to replace the 50V caps on their preamps to a more manageable 6V. It would seem like a cheap fix if the voltage rating were indeed a problem. Has there been any talk on these pages or on other forums about the capacitor voltage ratings in the reissue? There might have been, like I said I am new at this and am willing to learn.
Rather than thinking I was putting words in anyone's mouth you could have read my response as, 'has anyone noticed a problem where a higher voltage cap was used in this amp?' If the reissue does not sound bad maybe the voltage rating is not that significant.
Why are you trying to make me out to be the bad guy? All my posts I have tried to be helpful here. Good thing we are just talking electronics and not religion or politics.
