Welcome back. A better description of the part that you are looking for would be helpful.

As far as I know Commanders used an transconductance amp that was part number 80848. These looked like a round metal transistor with 8 legs. They would be found on the effects board, PC5068.

They controlled the vibrato/tremolo and the reverb mix.

If this is the part that you are looking for, they can be replaced with an CA3080E which has a plastic DIP package, but will fit directly into the pc board.

As of late last year these chips were still available from Jameco Electronics in Belmont, California.
