Wrong capacitors!


2007-12-30 9:39 pm
I'm building a preamp, I ordered all my parts, and everything came fine except for a few .01uf 630v, and 6800pf capacitors. They are the small snap in, micro chip kind! I don't know how to make these work, I guess I could try to solder the ends, but there so small, I don't want to ruin them by soldering. Anyone have any advice, or do I have to go and get the right ones?
