Where to buy smd film capacitors?

Looking for a particular component or hardware part and you just cannot find it? Got comoonents surplus and want to get rid of it? Post it all here... No sales of working pedals, put these in the 'Seen for sale' section please.

Where to buy smd film capacitors?

Postby POTL » 12 Aug 2017, 16:31

In many stores it is easy to find smd resistors, ceramic capacitors, electrolytes, tantalum, diodes, microcircuits and so on.
BUT I can not find film capacitors smd anywhere, do they exist at all?
If so, where can I buy them?

I think you will find that all smd capacitors are made from ceramic material.

Is it really so?
There are no such capacitors?
I noticed that many of the company's boutique switched to SMD, but I did not think that they gave up the film in favor of ceramics
In many pedals, the capacitors are of two colors, silver and golden.
I always thought that silver is ceramics, and golden is a film.

Yes they are all made of ceramic material but they perform better than any through hole film capacitors. It's just the way they are manufactured. They are more modern. Open up your computer or any modern electronic device and it will be likely that every smd capacitor is ceramic. Soon the through hole film capacitors will will no longer exist. That's way it goes. Also you will notice smd capacitors don't have codes on them so you will never know their values unless you desolder and measure them with a meter. Where as for some reason smd resistors have their codes printed on them.

The computer is not sound equipment.
It's no secret that ceramics differs in sound from other sources, and has a microphone effect in pedals with heavy distortion :cry:

Buy them and then use them then. Why ask if you have found your result. Pay the extra that they cost if that is what you want. Won't make any difference to your tone.
