I’ve replaced the electrolytic capacitors on this beautiful radio, but the bass and treble controls are not functioning in any mode. I have the schematic for the unit, but am unable to locate the controls on the diagram. The schematic and other literature I have on this model are in Dutch, further confusing things. 

The radio has no paper caps, but instead Philips/Mullard “Mustard” capacitors which I understand are a type of poly and considered reliable. None of these have been replaced. If I could make sense of the schematic, I would undertake substituting some of these where relevant to the bass/treble circuit, but I don’t want to start replacing with no real direction.

I quickly tested a couple of sections of the tone controls and they seem to be varying resistance fine on an ohm meter. As both controls aren’t functioning, I don’t suspect that the controls themselves are faulty. 

Interestingly, the radio has push button tonal controls which are functioning correctly. There are three selections labeled Fidelita (full fidelity), Modesta (medium fidelity) and Parola, suitalble for talk. I imagine these are useful with the AM broadcasts to quickly minimize RF noise. 

Any help or insight would be appreciated.

Thank you!
