Replacement transistors for Yamaha PM1000 master module

I am busy recapping the master modules in my Yamaha PM1000, but I may have damaged one of the transistors. I'm thinking of replacing them all if I'm gonna be doing one anyway. Problem is, I know very little about transistors and I have no idea what to get as replacements. The transistors on the modules are marked 2SA841 and 2SC1681.

Any idea what would be a good replacement or info on how I go about searching for replacements?

I don't really think there's anything to be gained by wholesale replacement of the transistors. If they've lasted 40 years already, I'd leave them alone.
best,
Ike

Fair enough. I still may have to replace the one(s) I damaged.

Fairly common devices. An ECG or NTE 159 will work in it's (2SA841) place, but it's best to use the original.

Best to replace them with something modern and quiet. 2SC3329BL for NPN and 2SA1084 for PNP.
