A Buzzing noise from my Reverb section of the amplifier

Hi there

When I play my keyboard on my Peavey Combo, if I turn on the Reverb I get a buzzing. Is this to do with grounding or noise reduction that maybe a capacitor has failed?..Or is there a general circuit that controls this that has failed and needs replacing?

Is it easily repaired and a basic costing would be??

Many thx

Phil

I am sensing 60 cycle hum. the reverb will draw more power. i would try what is actually powering the units. power strip??? off of an unknown amperage power outlet? if the electrical system that feeds the a/c outlet is ran in series, you may not be getting enough juice or the outlets have bad grounds. i dont see a capacitor causing the buzz noise, but more of a pop and then sudden loss of signal. may be a resistor. also if you have a reverb tank the lines maybe mixed up in/out, or the tank is going bad.

Peavey classic 50 reverb stopped working and now when you turn the reverb knob it makes the tone of the amp brighter and lots of buzz


I do not have one of these but It sounds like an open connection or broken wire. Check the peddle and associated wiring first and be sure it is OK, if possible swap with a known good one to be sure. If it is not the peddle wireing and associated jacks it is probably an open wire on the reverb pot.

What is it when a Peavey DPC1400x turns on, plays sound for a split second, makes a buzzing noise, and go us silent


The fan is probably thermally controlled. This is done so that there is no fan noise when the volume is low. Once there is sound coming through, if the output stage heats up enough, the fan is turned on. It sounds like one or more of the output transistors is experiencing thermal runaway. The buzzing sound is most likely due to protection circuitry. You would need a schematic and a voltmeter to check this at the very least. If you are not inclined to perform the repair yourself, I would suggest taking it to a local guitar shop that repairs equipment. The smaller shops might have a tech make an initial assessment on the spot, which is something that the big chains are unlikely to do.

Peavey Ecort is working fine but has a loud buzzing that slowly gets


This is often caused by the failure of the large capacitor(s) in the power supply. The noise being the 50/60hz mains hum getting in. They will be the biggest Capacitors in the system with a value around 4700UF or greater, so you can't fail to see them.

The voice coil on the cube speakers must be scraping against the magnet.Or the speaker cone must be damaged causing it to flutter at low frequency where there will be large cone movement. Try removing the phono jack from your musical instrument/ guitar and touch the tip of the jack with your finger. You will hear a hum, now turn down the volume and listen to the speakers very closely and see if you can identify the flutter. All the same you will have to fix the speaker or replace it. Have you ever dropped the speakers, if so the speaker frame could have warped causing the scraping noise.

There MAY be a circuit trace on a board that is cracked OR a poor soldered connection. It is vibration sensitive as you have found. Changing a switch vibrates the unit.

Depending on what you have connected, this could even ba a bad input jack.

The unit needs to be serviced. You could open it and see if there is something obvious.

Buzzing bass Amp combo


The problem you have mentioned is a common one with old sets, but it also occurs in new ones also, though not frequent. You can fix this just by changing the electrolytic filter capacitors in the power supply and sub filters on the amp PCB. The new capacitors should be of the same or higher voltage rating and same capacity rating as of the existing ones. And as it is such an old one, it is better to change all the electrolytic capacitors to avoid any further problems.
