    Incidentally those are the caps that were in bandmastered deluxe reverb. I left the orange but changed the silver. I will probably change the orange as they are over 10 yrs old I assume. I assume I should probably cput in new resistors. I stand to be helped and corrected by the learned. The learning continues......
    Thanks

    They look like one watt carbon composition. You can use metal oxide or metal film to replace them. Modern metal oxide/metal film 1 W are smaller.

    It looks like a 4.7K (yellow, purple, red) and a 1K (brown, black, red) if those are the actual colors I'm seeing in your picture. The schematic for a blackface Bandmaster shows the same values, both 1 watt ratings.

    Check the voltages,if they are near correct leave 'em alone..Those resisters seldom need replacing..I wouldn't change the caps either unless they look or sound bad..I know the techs all say 10 years life span but I've seen 20 years on some and still good..
    BTW,whatever you do,be sure to discharge those things before you do any thing else..They bite big time,and you might not be lucky enough to get a second chance.I goofed one time and got hit hard enough to knock my upper dentures out of my mouth..Lesson learned.....PJ....

    Thanks PJ. Draining the juice was the first thing I learned to do before adventuring on the tweak road. Being the paranoid guy, I watch it drop through my meter, so I don't drop.
