Default Re: Akai GX77 recap - which ones to change if any?

And another thing: changing out Frakos can stop pots rustling (DC). Tants are the worse in this regard. A tant that is over a certain age should always be swapped for a modern low-Z cap. Pro gear can have a lot of pots, and coupled with 40 year old Frakos and tants, it doesn't take a lot of detective work to see why studio engineers are finicky about new caps.
