RE: Scott 130 preamp question

I did replace the black caps with K40s but Thermonic is right when he said that the black Pyramids are great sounding caps.They are paper impregnated in wax.Today I use a mix of caps and in the 130 you are able to fit the FT2s
in a couple places and I use k40s and Solen film and tin foil or Rel multicaps or even the 716p caps.If this was going to be a daily driver like my Fisher 400CX2, or Mac C20, or Heathkit AA-11,I will put a couple Sonic cap Teflons in the mix as well.
What really helps these preamps is using a pair of 30uf to 35uf film caps in the power supply.I use one off 6X4 and one after the first resistor.
