    Tone caps for 5E3, the .0047 uf & 470 pf... I guess I will go with silver mica unless someone points me in a different direction...

    I have not done a build in a while and the shipping cost are eating me, a kit would have been cheaper but, I got to choose my bits and pieces.

    The only upgrades that will come in the following months are a Jupiter A12 and some cool tubes, for the time being I will run it through my "house" cabinet (a 1 X 12 loaded with a broken in 8" Tone Tubby Alnico, going to beat on it some more)... and some tubes I had on hand.

    I think the generic kit I got from eBay used a yellow Mallory for the 0.0047

    Go ahead and buy five of each when you buy them so it won't happen again.
