Without any better pics, they look like caps - mustard caps. 0.002uF/700V ??

Why not desolder and do some measuring?

They look a bit different in mine, but I agree with robinbowes they seem to be capacitors.
They remind my some styroflex as you can see here (but value is unreadable):

Hi thanks guys Yes i did measure. He pulled one and put a resistor 680 ohm in, that was the way he brought it to me. I measured the one he left in and it measured about 850 ohms in circuit i lifted a leg and it did act like a cap it measured and climbed to infinate/ no reading I had him bring me the old one he pulled and it measured about 250 ohms steady and had a tiny pin hole in the finish coating, didnt look to be burned in any way. I re-installed it and it acted the same low output no effect with the senitivity but volume did work just low output, bass and treble worked also.. I sugested a new op amp, only one in town was a NTE equvilant.. YUK.. for 7 bucks. He went to get it and they didnt have one i looked up a comprable replacement and came up with a LM4250 or CA3078. I notice yours has a green stripe rather than a green dot, you think they would use a 700v cap in this ?? He said he bought it in 1972 or so I asked Barcus Berry for a schemo, no reply .. Still wondering but thanks for the input. please hit me up should you figure out any more I as still searching they remind me of some of the old caps in a vintage big muff come to think of it ..Thanks guys

Yes that's a bit strange to see that kind of green marking, in fact on mine they seem to have been all green and painted in black only on the ends... they seem to be enclosed in a thick piece of tranparent heatshrink tube :scratch:

If I measure mine in circuit with the ohm meter I got 1K3 & 1K5 with the bass pot at max, and 1K55 & 1K57 with the pot set at minimum... no really the same as yours.
The best would be to measure them with a capacitance-meter if you have one.

that are inductors and probably they are not broken or the cause for the low output.
