Starting with the brand name, google it. Then when you find out what type of valve it is, look at home depot. I do not suggest taking it apart first. You may get it apart and may not be able to put it back together. Show a photo of it. this may help you out LOTS due to the several different types and the resulting tools you may need.

Who made the control ? Is it Old ?
Is it a single control ie on / off and temperature ?
If it is a single knob type you may need to replace it.

Because it is old, be prepared to be forced to buy a replacement once you
tackle the shower.
Most of these things use O ring seals which can be replaced by you - try a plumbing house, and take them the make of the valve, and its general type.

Turn off the water before servicing ......
