ok i needed a 51pf capacitor for a build. I couldn't find one so i was wondering if it's better to use a capacitor of lower value or higher value and what each will do to the pedal. Still working on the tubescreamer build. I know about wiring in series and parallel, but i want to use another capacitor to keep it simple. Thanks.
well are you sure its 51pF? that is a tiny value capacitor. thats 0.000051uF. You can just try a bunch of different valued capacitors.
