I want to introduce the latest release of vintage parts from Hallman Labs, the ultra-rare MiniWatt Mullard/Philips Mustard capacitor. I’ve never before seen these capacitors prior to my acquisition of a large lot of Mullard/Philips capacitors, both NOS and used. When I began to sort through this pristine lot of capacitors, my jaw dropped when I saw the words “MiniWatt” across a good number.
I didn’t even know such capacitors existed. I knew many brands were used on capacitors from large manufacturers like Sprague, Mullard and Philips/BC. However, usually you see brand name of amplifier makers like Fender or Marshall, not ultra-premium lines from Mullard/Philips themselves. Making these a truly unique find and definitely worth the $11 to $15 price-tag I have given them. Especially so when compared to the price of “standard” Mullard “mustard” capacitors and mustard amplifier kits currently on EBay and other vintage part suppliers.
Mullard’s standard “Mustard” line of capacitors in true NOS (New Old Stock) form are rare items to find at all these days, but to find the MiniWatt branding on any capacitors is truly a very rare find indeed. Anyone who knows the history of the MiniWatt brand will be automatically drawn to these handful of samples available.
