Default Question about Bride of Zen Cap Values

I am currently assembling the parts for the Bride of Zen. I noticed that C104 and C103 are listed as 100V caps. Is this right ?
To my simple eyes C104 will only ever see 10V or so at the most, and C103 will only ever see 25V at the most. Am I missing something. Since I want to use non Bipolar caps in these positions there is a significant cost issue at stake here.

Default Question about BOSOZ caps.

Sorry Shoog, I also just want to ask a question.

For BoSoZ, C103, 104, 105 & 106 are 10uf 100v. I got a couple of 30uf 440v and 8uf 400v caps. Can I use any of these instead, if so which will be the better, the 30uf or the 8 uf?

Default Yes you can.

Its always possable to increase either the Voltage and the capacitance. You can never drop the voltage below the expected max voltage it will see, and to drop the capacitance will likely roll off the bottom end.
The caps you have should do fine, but not the 8uf for C104.
