    I have a fender bass amp that a disk capacitor fell out of, the leads are broken off right next to the body of the cap, nothing to solder to. I have the numbers on the cap, and I want to order another one, I did a google search but came up with nothing,,what has me confused is the farad rating,, it says .01K, 1KV, .01K, z5f. .01K is how many pf?? sorry for not knowing the math.

    That's 0.01uF = 10nF = 10000pF. K = ±10% tolerance. Z5F = dielectric type. The last two are not important, and the voltage rating may not need to be as high as 1kV.

    Thanks for the help, math with all them zeros was easier 30 years ago.

    maybe, but being a fender amplifier its probably a tube amplifier and running 200V or so on the plates (tube anodes) etc and 1kV rated cap wouldnt be out of place when peak DC voltages could easily be hitting 500V :)
