As cheap as they are I would get several so you have backups if they go bad again. If they're soldered directly to the PCB you might want to add those IC sockets that the chips plug into so they can be easily replaced if needed.

I might give that a go. From what I understand those chips are the reason those are no longer in production. I think they were causing a bunch of warranty issues and eventually they just quit producing them. The amp still works for the most part. Just the volume may suddenly drop for a while and come back. If anything I can still use it for fiddling around at home or whatever, but I probably won't depend on it as much on a stage with me. I'm kind of curious what causes them to fail myself. Either way thanks to you and L. Paul Lover for taking the time to help.

Good luck getting it sorted - glad to help sort of.

Depending on what space there's on the board, I'd recommended the IC sockets too - be aware that you would need a different look chip though, with straight downward pins.

If you solder them straight on the PCB, be careful how long you apply the soldering iron to them - ICs don't like heat and fry easily.
