Dual Section Capacitors 20+20uF, 10+10uF & 12+12uF
I'm looking into getting each of the following dual section electrolytics custom-manufactured for a OEM customer by F&T in Germany, and was hoping to find out if there was any general interest in these values being available:
10uF +10uF @ 500V
12uF + 12uF @ 500V
20uF + 20uF @ 500V
40uF + 40uF @ 500V
These would all be 35mm x 50mm cans with solder lugs. I can't give exact pricing but I guess they'd work out around £7/€7.50/$10 each.
I know that the above values were commonly available from various manufactures as late at 1975.
What I really need to know is whether I should just fulfil the customer order, or whether I should look to stock these caps for small volume buyers.
Your thoughts very much appreciated.
I'm especially interested in the 20uF+20uF @ 500V dual section, which, I think, was an old Gibson staple.
Your price point is great considering what the can caps
here in the states are selling for.
The 20 - 20 at 500V would be the one I would stock.
However IMO customers would want the amp to somewhat
stay the smae and would want to have a cap can that
would fit in the same spot. The FTP series as I remember
I think are a little larger diameter than your 35MM and
for sure taller. These would be good for DIY builders
and not purests. I would still get extras, you will sell them.

Thanks for the reply - much appreciated.
Sizing is always an issue for replacements - I've also been looking at getting some 16+16uF @ 500V in a 40x100mm can. But the problem, as always, is the MOQ's required.
You could use stacked caps instead of multi-section electrolytes. See pics here:
It's very clever, but not so pretty ;-)
