Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

My ass hurts just thinking about buying them!!!!!!  
I think i got an orange drop kit from new sensor a few years back, I seem to remember paying 40 bucks and getting a SH#TLOAD of caps, including quite a few .022's  
THink of how much they are worth now!!!! I'll pull them out of my matchless clone and sell them as "relic" caps!

"Why Pay $50.00 Each & Upwards for OLD Bumble Bee Caps for your Les Paul ??? Orange Drop Caps are better or as good as Bumble Bees."  
So in essence, your really getting a good deal.
