They are Mylar Film Capacitors. They are electronic components. They store power and stuff. They are used in guitar effects, guitar wiring, computers, tvs, all kinds of electronic things.

If you look in my sig, and look at any of the links of the pedals I have built, you can see them along with transitors, pots, switches, resistors, leds, diodes, electroylic capacitors, etc.

Theres many uses. One is for filters. On the tone knob, theres probably a capacitor and then the pot acts as a variable resistor. These can create a high or low pass filter depending on how they are connected. A high pass filter allows more high end levels (treble) through and the pot controls how much. A low pass filter allows more low end levels (bass) through and the pot controls how much.
