all of em.... ranging from 18pf to 10000pf all in 100V DC
i have tested them as input capacitor and found infinite texture details i dont understand how come i missed these for so long...
so i have picked up to build amps like LME49810, Hiraga superclass A 30W amps etc...
soon i would be ordering many of them for my lifetime nobody knows when the manufacturing will be stopped...

Values this low are not typically used for input/coupling, but rather as specific values in filters, oscillators, feedback. Polystyrene is an excellent dielectric, but values higher than .1 uF are rare and expensive.

A list of specific values and tolerance would be useful.

he is building 2.2uf by paralleling 220 x 10000pf caps so that it can be used as input capacitor but using 50 of them itself has given me what sort of signature it delivers...
like in general all the values of pf as you find in ceramic range if anybody wants it i can request for few 2.2uf caps..
