Peavey ecoustic 112 looses tone and some of the effect from time to time

My peavey ecoustic 112 seems to loose its great tonal setting from time to time.Cables are great,it kinda seems like you cut the effects off for a second to sometimes an hour.I dont have book handy but it does have a specila circuit that supposed to control feedback,sound quality and so on.It has a specific ame for the process but i forgot it.I play mostly through my superatural takamine with cooltube preamp.Its prettyawesome.The amp acts up with other sometimes too.Sometimes it will act fine for a month or so then while im playing it starts loosing it great sound.Usually i start adjusting to compensate but until it straightens up the sound isnt great at all.Kinda like if a tube was going bad.Does this amp have tubes and solid state.Its the 112 efx model.Please help.I play at church reguraly and need my great sound to help cover my singin.Ha.Thanks Praisehim316

Peavey bandit 112

have you tried using a foot pedal? Are you sure it is switching (green light turns red, etc?). On the lead channel are you turning up the gain all the way and the volume down?

How can i get more metal distortion from my peavey 6505+ 112 combo amp?

Tone is a hard thing for some to achieve. Kinda sounds like the amp isn't satisfactory to you as a player. I use an ADA MP-1 with a quadraverb GT and I can sound like Steve Vai with almost any amp. The pedals you mentioned should all sound pretty good with almost any amp. You kinda sound as if your amp sounds wimpy. ALSO, a good metal distortion is a combo of effects as well as tone(layering). The sound you may be expecting may be the sounds of 4 effects combos at a time through a line mixer making it all sound like one sound. I use rack stuff BECAUSE I can get the sounds that NO pedals can give. This also sounds like your knowledge of the equipment needs improvement. True tweaking of gear takes years to perfect, especially if you're a picky guitarist like myself.

Hi there, and thanks in advance for any help you may give. I find my Peavey Delta Blues either EATS valves or the valves come loose, though I haven't moved it so that doesn't seem likely. I put new...

DO NOT run on less than the full set of valves!!! ALSO when replacing the valves with matched pairs used the matched pairs to replace either the inner two or the outer two. If they come loose, the sockets probably have pins that are loose. Sometimes they can be tightened a little using a sharp scribe to bend them gently inward. I would consider installing tube retainers. They are made as a wire springs. Go to this site:

I'm trying to get a crunchy metal sound from my peavey 112 bandit. What should I set my controls to?

Overdrive is the key to the crunchy metal sound. The only effect on that amp is reverb.
You may want to consider getting an overdrive pedal to get the sound you want.

I have a Peavey ValveKing 112. It seems like it just takes forever for the tubes to warm up. For like the first hour that it's turned on the clean channel seems fine, but the second channel doesn't work....

Buy ONE new 12AX7 and try it in location V1 and if it doesn't help, try it in V2. This tube has TWO heaters in it and if one is intermittent that could cause your problem. The vibration MIGHT be "fixing" a briken heater after some time.
There are MANY components that could cause this, so you might have to take it in for repair if it isn't a simple tube problem. Since it works on the clean channel, V3 should be OK.

Distortion on the lead channel is not working

The intergrated circuit is most likely gone out. Not much you can do, cost in repair is more than the amp. Check out the peavey vypyr, it's a great modeling amp for about $100.

When the power switch is turned on the amp just has a loud hum and nothing works not even the little power indicator light..

You have a bad ground probably inside the amp , you need a on hands Tec for this one. I bet its not to serious , about $65.00, is it worth it to ya all tho I don't know your area , but its been my exp.this would be a fair price most any where. good luck DFD

then i'm afraid that your main board has a glitch that you can't repair. take it to a music shop they have the neccessary parts to repair this problem and they have the schematics that will show them which chip is faulty. i'm not sure how long you have had this amp but over time the heat causes the chips or tubes to fail. that is the best answer i can give you at this time anything else would just be a gues and a waste of time. good luck
