Hi, That's my first.

I was looking some Green Russian Big Muff Reissue Gutshots and i notice there's a Lot ou 104/103 parallel capacitors used as coupling caps.
I was wondering If it's just to get 110nf or If there's some other effect to the sound.

Thanks

In general, there'd be a difference, but not in audible range. So, yes, you can replace them as long as you find a cap with corresponding value.

I don't know why they've done this. Maybe reasons due to existing component base. Maybe something else, who knows.
