    I have six cats. I hate that analogy.

    That's a nice looking build, but why not use more reasonable sized caps for the tremolo? There's absolutely no reason to use orange drops there. I was using Murata MLCCs, but the thin leads bothered me, so I started using the Xircon poly caps from Hoffman. I won't use anything else now for the tremolo caps. They fit and function perfectly.

    Yeah, I have always wondered about that old saying, Phrygian. Then one day I was watching some show about
    Chinese cuisine. They showed how they skin a cat. Different strokes, I suppose.

    As for those ‘orange drops’, there are different types of Orange Drops that are not quite as big as those four caps there. But....I am not an anti-OD guy. I keep 715’s and 716’s on hand.

    I'm not anti orange drop. You can see the 715p's in my picture. I use them in them in most of builds, as long as long they fit well, and they're the straight lead type.

    Just for convenience, or is there any other reason?

    Analogy or Proverb....

    For the record... I have never skinned a cat, killed two birds with one stone, grabbed a bull by the horns, beat a dead horse or pulled teeth.

    I find the trem array is a good place to go vintage with nice, super compact ceramic disks. But even though I don’t use polypropylene myself (wishful thinking maybe?) I like that build with the big board and the big caps in the narrow chassis. It's more than tidy, it’s totally sano. And what better way to show you can do a tidy job with a wide board? Different strokes for sure...
