I am putting together a guitar amplifier and have a question about a couple brands of 450 Volt capacitors.
I am trying to buy what I need from one seller. Parts Express and a seller on eBay both have what I want but I am not sure of either brand. The parts express capacitors are listed as there brand. The brand the seller on eBay offers are Supertech. There is another popular brand called F&T out of Germany but the one Cap alone is about $15.00 with out shipping for a 33UF 450 Volt capacitor. Can it be that much better? Has anyone ever herd of or used the Supertech and what are thoughts on Parts Express brand?
Thanks

Thanks DR DX. I actually found a place called Hoffman Amps he had a bunch of parts I needed so I ordered the caps. from him along with the other parts. His prices were fair. So I just went with him. Thanks

    Sorry to hear you troubles, he is famous around here for his scams.

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.

    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.
  • @ beakster1715:
    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
