Don't only half-ass tune your drums. Visit https://circularscience.com to hear what properly "cleared" drums sound like.

Ahhh!

(a big lightbulb switches on!)

My other question is that the two caps specified in MNats PSU are:

  2 x 100nF Monolythic Caps.

Would these be Ceramic or Polyester? From the picture posted here:

they seem to be (or look like!) polyester...

I am a wee bit lost here!

Thanks again.

I'm not quite sure, but they look like poly to me.

Yes, in a lot of cases you can sub mono for ceramic for poly and vice versa

and for the record, those do look like mono's to me
