    I was wondering if anybody knows where I could get amp components, preferably from an online vendor. I'm specifically looking for the board that has the EQ sliders on it for an ampeg SVT 3 Pro. Could this be ordered from Ampeg maybe? Any help is appreciated.

    Typically, that is not though of as a 'part' as much as a 'module' or 'board'. The parts are the individual components on the board, and any decent electronics supplier should have them. Short of being broken in half or having been on fire, there is typically no reason whatsoever to replace a board on one of these amps - fix what you have at a fraction of the cost!

    Ok I found a place that sells the slider pots, except they have like 4 different kinds, does anybody know what my amp requires. At allelectronics.com they have 50K, 75K, 1K, Dual 100K, I dont know which is the correct one.

    This is a case where you probably have to get in touch with the manufacturer. Even if the component value is known, panel mounted parts (pots, switches, jacks) often come in a variety of mechanical formats, which are often not carried as stock by any supplier. More often than not, re-jiggering a part that doesn't quite fit ends up costing you more in time an aggravation than shelling out for the official replacement part.
