Vintage Capacitor Kits

One of the challenges in owning a piece of vintage gear is keeping it running in top condition. Parts wear out, rust out, leak out, or their values drift over time. This is particularly true of aluminum electrolytic capacitors.

Parastream is pleased to offer complete aluminum electrolytic capacitor kits for the Vintage Korg BX-3 and CX-3 organs. They include replacements for all aluminum electrolytic capacitors for all circuit boards. Many organs have been plagued with leaking capacitors that eat PCB traces and cause all sorts of problems. Please note that these kits do not include capacitors other than aluminum electrolytic as they have proven to be very stable and have caused no problems to date.

Every electrolytic capacitor in this kit has a minimum duration rating of 2,000 hours @85°C. For the non-EE, this translates into 11 years at 8 hours a day at normal temperatures under 40°C (100°F). This is what the manufacturers guarantee, in all probability you’ll do better. Heat and humidity are the biggest killers of electrolytic capacitors, so avoid exposing your equipment (no matter who makes it) to temperature and humidity extremes. This goes extra for storage. While your equipment will stand up to occasional playing in 40°C 95% humidity, never store it under these conditions.

NOTE: These kits are intended for electronics technicians or owners with intermediate to advanced soldering skills. There are no DIY instructions; just a few bags of capacitors with the Korg PCB designators on them (such as KLM-244). If you don’t feel comfortable removing the boards and replacing components, you should consider having a local qualified technician perform the work. If you would like for us to replace the capacitors in your Vintage Korg BX-3 or CX-3 for you, take a look at our Vintage Korg BX-3/CX-3 Repair Service Kit.
