Hi folks, I am hoping I get some help here for a recapping project I trying to take on myself. I am competent at soldering but my electronics education is mostly forgotten. The amp I am working on is my first venture into tube amps and is an old Bogen DB-212. It actually works well and sounds better than expected, even with original components and unrefined ears.
I have the all the Photofact info for my amp but it seems that some of the DB-212 caps are not available at the original specifications. Below are a couple electrolytic caps I can't find modern replacements for. I even called tubes and more but they could not help.
• 5uf 200v
• 100uf 6v
I know I need to match the voltage with the OEM spec or higher. What about the capacitance rating?
I see below that you got your electrolytics from Mouser. The only other point to make is that the 5uF/200V capacitor might be replaced with a film capacitor, for a sonic upgrade, assuming it's anywhere in the signal path. A 5uF metallized polypropylene film capacitor in that voltage rating or higher might fit within the available space.
I would guess that the 2 caps you mentioned are not in the main power supply. i think you could probably double the value if you cant find the exact one you need.
Mouser has both your 5uF @ 200 VDC and 100 uF @ 6.3 VDC in stock.
The link below will take you to their search tool where you should be able to find what you're looking for.
Good luck with your project.
Edit: Mouser just happened to be the first place I checked, but you might want to bookmark DigiKey too, for this, or future projects.
Thank you! I placed an order.
