7815 and 7915 are +15V and -15V regulator ICs respectively.

The mix of IRFZ44 and IRFZ46 in the power supply is probably due to a bad repair job and it's enough by itself to cause trouble.

The 2A parts are MMBT3906s.

The original FETs were probably BUZ11s but either the Z44 or the Z46 would be a good sub.

Yeah, replace all four power supply fets with the same part number. Irfz44 seems to be a good all around replacement these days.
Don't worry... you can always turn the gain down!
