Thinking about possibly replacing them with F&T's, and have wondered if anyone's replaced theirs ?

Better to be safe than sorry. There is nothing wrong with the F&T caps. Better QC and lower ESR than the Spraque IMO. F&T is my cap of choice these days.

Today is my day to learn something new.

What are you referring to as an "IC" cap?

IC is the brand of cap Fender used when building the amp.

So looking at the offerings for F&T caps, I'm finding the following:

22uf - 500V x 3 C33-C53

47uf - 500v x 1 C32

But so far can find the smaller 22uf - 100v for C31

Any suggestion's ?

I'm assuming that's "can't" find?

I didn't do a lot of searching but Mouser Electronics has Vishay, Nichiron and Kemet caps in that value in stock, 22/100.

You could use a 33/160 F&T in that spot and it would work just fine.

Thanks Hammond. I was trying to stay all F&T and keep the stock values.

No worries !
