Basically I'm rewiring an old guitar, and I fitted it with DiMarzio X2N and Super Distortion humbuckers, the way I'm havin to wire it up is with just a master volume and tone, I'm going with 500k pots for each, but which capacitor should I put on the tone to get the best range with these two pickups?


I agree, Orange drop .047 or even .033 are awesome, and the .047 will give you great mids and bass, without too much icepick treble!! can't go wrong!!

Most info sites usually recommend .022mfd caps w 500k for humbuckers and .047 with 250k for single coils. It's pretty much the rule I've stuck to..

you could experiment, me and a mate put the biggest cap we could find, 3000uF, on his bass, that was awesome

eventually we decided on a .1uF though

the capacitors are backwards, it goes the other way around.

i don't fully agree. all my Humbucker guitars have .022uf in them
