Hi guys, I am recapping a couple of guitar amplifiers and I need 8 LCR 50/50/500 filter can capacitors… I know these aren’t made anymore so it’s been tough to find them, if anybody has a lead on some, I would really appreciate it,
hope you are all having a great weekend,
KEITH

As far as I know you can use either one of these Caps as replacements.

Thank you Joseph, I appreciate it… But these don’t sound quite the same as the LCR caps…

they are still around....

found some in seconds, you should be able to find some closer to you...

https://www.justradios.com/DUALsection.html

ok, and also in other places:

https://www.partsconnexion.com/JJCAP-64126.html

You have to use clamps, so you need to make a few chassis holes to screw mount the clamps, and that's it. Maybe enlarge the holes in the chassis to clear the pins of the new caps (where the pins usually come through into the bottom, where the wiring is).

$88 cdn plus tax and shipping, probably $2 each for the 8 clamps, from the same source.

'the tube store' has some as well.

I think you can still get new cans in exactly the original plain aluminum can style, with the twist in pins instead of clamps.

Really... Thanks Binky! Those things are really cheap too, you are the second person that’s told me to try these… So, in your opinion, they are all a lot more like the LCR Than the other new production stuff?

Maybe I’m going crazy Binky, but I can’t find any website with these ARS caps for sale… The only place I found them was on eBay and that auction has ended…
