Useless, for my purpose -- which is to replace the can cap in a Fender Princeton Reverb. I bought this because I have recently gotten a couple bad CED can caps and I didn't want to try my luck again with them (they are NOT cheap!) The lead spacing on this JJ cap will NOT work in a Princeton Reverb, unless you are prepared to get out your chassis punches and enlarge the hole. As this is a pristine 1966 PR, that is not going to happen. I'm just angry with myself; I should have ordered the dang CED can in ADDITION to this JJ thing. Now I've got to reorder and wait, while I eat the cost of this useless JJ cap...

I've used JJ can caps to save expense in projects in the past, this last one was doing an EICO ST70. If I had to do it again, I'd chose to avoid the JJ 40/20/20/20. Its leads are so broadly spaced it made it a real PITA to fit this can. Really braindead design, could've been less of a cluster if they'd used their head when it came to the lead spacing.

These capacitors are a great deal. They are inexpensive, take up little room, handle plenty of voltage and are well made. The uf values are good for most of my amp projects, too. Definitely five star value.

This is a great cap for small tube amps. The 500V rating gives plenty of headroom for the startup surge of amps that operate in the 300-350V B+ range. A bit larger in diameter than most multi-cans, but can squeeze into most rebuilds with the 1.5" clamp and sometimes drilling one extra #6 or M3 screw hole to mount the clamp. I like to use this cap on EL84 builds. It takes up less than half of the flat space and simplifies wiring compared to individual caps that I used to use, and has yet to disappoint. Also note the 160mA and 80mA i(ac) ratings per section, which should be more than enough for anything using EL84 or 6V6. As a bonus, the price is tough to beat for the functionality. I recommend you give one a try if you are (re)building a <12 Watt amp.

Recently bought a cappacitor and retaining ring. Price was reasonable, shipping was fast, item was as advertized. Fixed a HP 400c meter and it now works very well. Thank you for stocking parts for vintage equiptment that are hard to find. I was very happy with my purchase and will look forward to future dealings with Antique Electronic Supply.

Haven't had one fail yet. The 40/20/20/20 is a great size for smaller amps, and construction seems beefy and resilient. Love this cap.
