I’ve always heard lots of talk about Orange Drops. Well, I finally got my
data book from the manufacturer. There are lots of different Orange
Drops. Here is some info:
Orange Drops have been made by SB Electronics for about 10 years now, not
Sprague. (no big deal, it seams to be the same actual people).
Why do most audio/guitar amp people use the discontinued PS series
polyesters? I would think that the preferable choice is the 716P series.
They are polypropelene, have very low dissipation factor/ESR, high current
and high pulse capability. They have a resonant frequency around 1mhz,
stable temperature characteristics, etc etc etc.
SB is on the net, they will make caps to your order for $75 setup +cost of
parts on qty 1000 or less. (I haven’t called to see what the minimums
Victoria and Dr. Z are said to be using a custom made Orange Drop. Any
idea what volume and or type they are using?
