What does this do?

Satamax What does this do?
Hi everybody!>  
What does this thing when you input some AC in?

There seems to be a spelling error in the link to the image - should read:  
Anyway, it is a simple first order highpass filter.  
There is no point in having two caps in series like this, they can be replaced with a single cap with half the value (110p).
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.

Thanks a lot Eric!  
Well, i drew it this way, because each cap dephasing the curent by 90 degres, i thought the curent out of the resistor would be 180 degres out of phase with with the one out of the caps, but i realize that it might not be that simple :D They form a smaller cap when in series, so it might not behave as expected dephasing teh signal. That's why they use a center resistor in bridged T filters? It's a high pass then, huh, does it act as a high pass to the ground when used as a cathode bypass circuit on a preamp valve?  
Thanks again. Max.
