Default RF suppression in guitar

I landed a job at a place that distributes all kinds of ferrite stuff. beads and torroids and such. i wonder if i can put some beads in my tone circuit instead of lining the whole thing with foil and not mess up the sound?

Were you planning to use beads in the signal path?

The foil lining is for hum (50Hz/60Hz/100Hz/120Hz) suppression.

Radio suppression should be built into your amplifier.
