Default Fuse type and fuse holder?

OK,

I found/trashed pick a Carvin Mixer CP630 Pro Six i wann a fix it. Problem is i don't want to f@#% it up (cause i tend to do that often). So i was wondering if anyone would give me some headers before i start screwing around with anything.

Hope someone reply's cause I'm getting finicky/ideas just lookin at the thing sitting there.

the part that you are missing

a small plastic lid you turn/twist when inserting the fuse, probably with a screw driver or a coin

you said cP630. Jazbo's table is for cX630. go with the 5acg. the fuse holder is missing the cap. I believe Radio Shack sells the whole fuse holder (cap and body) for a few bucks. they keep them in their parts bin (if they're not out of stock). hurry in to your local RS to get one before they discontinue it.

When the 5A fuse rating is printed on the amp next to the fuse holder, I see no reason to think it needs something other than that.

Caps get lost. People pull a blown fuse out and then nothing keeps the cap from falling out. Also people swipe them. A cap is missing somewhere else, and they grab one out of this to use elsewhere. I never gets returned. In music stores, amps regularly get fuses and caps stolen.
