          It's masking tape. Each of the capacitors was replaced by two lower voltage ones in series and with resistors to balance. I think the masking tape was to try to isolate each set. They weren't ICs, but ordinary from electronics store capacitors. .

              The nice thing about peeling one end of the doghouse open like a tuna can is that now any ham handed guitarist playing around with "tube rolling" could be electrocuted

              That's not just bad workmanship. That's dangerously irresponsible.

                That reminds of the Red Green show, handyman's corner episode: The Bug Zapper. " Duct Tape. The handyman's secret weapon"
