Oh, sorry... I forgot to go down that path... JDM had told me:

Ballpark - I'd guess more than 10 and less than 20.  I think there may be 
a couple of dual opamps in the output section (LF412), and there's a 
canned 301 on the waveshaper board (which I didn't replace).  You can use 
whatever opamp you can afford - I got a few OP07s in a surplus place for 
cheap and used those in the output.  I can't detect any change in 
character, just a big change in the noise floor.

It's always good to have a few quality opamps around, anyway.

You may want to buy a 1.5M metal film resistor to change the gain 
structure of the reverb.  I think you need a 300k on the output, but that 
doesn't have to be metal film.

Good luck!
