Default Blackgates REALLY ceasing production

Earlier, word had it that Blackgates would remain in production after the initial scare that Rubycon was halting production.

Now, according to the Parts Connexion website, negotiations have failed and Blackgates are REALLY going out of production. Woe is us!

What to do? How can we stop this?

By realizing the truth that capactors don't "sound"? Oops...nevermind...

Default Blackgates

Hi:
Go to Musical concepts web site. They say the Blackgates will continue production for a few more years.

Mmmm Musical concepts "news" is dated as being Feb 21 2005 wheras pcX's statement is dated as being July 20th 2005.

.... in the not to distant future.

"Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Tonight on auction we have a pair of fabled 4.7uF 25 Volt Black Gate capacitors. They are 2003 vintage items and we will open the bidding at a modest $500"

Me thinks I spy an opportunity to make an investment, unless Rubyconn change their mind and I get stuck with thousands of old stock caps

When blackgates became "on fashion" ?
And how? Anything special in tecnical side or are they "sounding good" according to someones ears ?

I tried search already but all i can find is 100000 threads of ppl drooling after their plans to change all caps starting from nuclear power plant and windmills feeding their amps...

Again, the BG scare is with us. I'd bet any amount of money that in a few months we again hear that they will continue making them.

More BG BS. I believe I shall cease using them on principal alone.

These days film caps are so cheap and reliable, that I can't see a reason for the BG caps in the first place.

So let them cease production at will for my sake
