I looked over a few Scott preamps, and I believe only one used a capacitor on the AC. That one had a capacitor across the AC line for noise filtering. Across the AC line is technically not a death cap because it's not directly connected to the chassis.

That's right! So, I would just use another .02 ufd cap of the appropriate voltage, correct?
The LC-21 is the only Scott schematic I can see that uses a line filter capacitor, and that one is always under voltage whenever the preamp is plugged in. But it might be a running change in production in one of the others.
You might still get an X or X2 rated capacitor since these are designed as line filters, but any quality polypropylene capacitor would probably do.
I thought you were supposed to use a ceramic disk capacitor for this.
