Default Non-Polar caps to cathode bypass

Would there be any sonic difference using non-polar caps instead of using electrolytic caps like BG to use in cathode bypass?

Yes, there should be.
However, some BG caps can sound just as good as the best filmcaps....
And...There's no cap like....no cap.

Cheers,

Hello ,
If the stage has a capacitor coupling the grid , use battery grid bias . No capacitor is better than any capacitor
