V-Cap TFTF

V-Cap TFTF

V-Cap TFTF (Tin Foil Fluoropolymer Film) capacitors are among the most coveted signal caps on the market. Numerous shootouts, reviews and comments by hardcore cap rollers and audio industry icons leave no doubt why the TFTF series is among the best audio capacitors ever made. Recommended for signal coupling in valve electronics, power supply bypassing, speaker crossovers, and guitar electronics.
THe V-Cap TFTF capacitor gives the smooth, liquid, and "musical" presentation of an oil capacitor, but with even better refinement, transparency and inner detail. Hear and feel true low frequency extension without any loss of control. Immerse youself in a holographic soundstage emanating from a velvety black background, while enjoying the midrange liquidity and bloom coveted by oil capacitor afficionados. The V-Cap TFTF's reproduction of a musical instrument's precise timbre must be heard to be believed. No detail has been overlooked or left to chance during the development and production of the V-Cap. Lead material: 18 AWG, 1mm diameter, solid core leadouts. Epoxy end-fill, carefully selected for the best musicality and detail. Can operate at higher temperatures than most other caps, making them significantly more reliable in the relatively high temperatures often found inside valve equipment. Every V-Cap capacitor is inspected, tested, and pushed to the edge of extreme conditions, to simulate the harsh environments commonly found in tubed electronics. This ensures long life, reliability, and the ultimate in performance. V-Cap capacitors are manufactured to such high standards, they are backed by a lifetime warranty to the original purchaser. The V-Cap TFTF is NOT a “rebrand” or relabeling of an already existing product, but a unique capacitor design that has been meticulously engineered and handcrafted in the U.S.A
Which way round do they go?
The green lead indicates the outermost foil, and should be connected to the lowest impedance path to ground. Another way to identify outer foil is the writing on the label flows towards the outer foil.
When used in amplifiers, outer foil should be connected towards the anode of first stage If using as a bypass cap to ground, connect green lead to ground. If using as a bypass cap from a signal to B+, connect green lead to B+. If using in a feedback position, connect green lead towards the output.

Hence why these are sometimes referred to as Teflon capacitors.
