help identifying a part... Answered

hey! im trying to get myself more into electronics... and im starting to repair an old electric organ (i dont care if its not really worth repairing, im happy to do it for the sake of it) but i came across some big scary things! lol... i think they are mica capacitors, they are definately the right size and shape... but the whole thing is coloured with horizontal stripes (some sort of colour coding) but i can find no reference to this anywhere! please help me! if anyone wants i can sort out a photo for you ;) cheers


A great reference book to help I.D. electronic components is the SK parts catalog or any other component manufacturers catalog. Electronic supply stores will usually give them to you upon request.

A photo would make it infinitely easier to identify your part.
