Question about Peavey Amplifiers & Preamps

My amp won't play distortion.

I have a Peavey Transtube Series Bandit 112 amp for my electric guitar and I had it adjusted to play distortion until my 3 yr old son messed with all the knobs, now it won't play the way it did. I can't get it to distort at all and can't get it adjusted right. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Hello all you have to do is turn your master volume down to just barley on then turn your pre amp volume somwhere about 2:oclock depending on how much distortion you want ajust your volume on your guitar a little past halfway to give yourself some headroom in case you need to turn up some while you are playing! just think of it as your guitar is your first pre-amp then your amp is second preamp in line ,that is your over drive ,then the master volume is how loud you want the overall volume i hope this help's ya!

I have a Peavey Valve King 112. When I plug in my guitar I get nothing.The power light is on and the preamp is on as well.There is just silince.No humming or crackling.


This could be anything. You could try swapping the preamp tubes. If it were a power amp tube problem, it is likely the mains fuse would have blown, Since the pilot lamp is still on, we will assume that the problem is at the preamp level. This absence of signal can be caused by a dead tube, or more complexly, by a faulty resistor or capacitor in the signal path. If you can't resolve the problem by swapping preamp tubes with a known good one, you should take the amp to a tech experienced in servicing tube guitar amps. Any good tech should be able to sort this out within an hour of labor time. I doubt it will require any expensive parts. It may even be as simple as a loose/bad connection, either from manufacturing, or from normal use. Pro tube amps are subjected to levels of heat, vibration and electrical stresses that consumer electronic gear never sees.

It might just be the control knob. My fender's reverb went out and it was just the knob.

Hi lumberman597

The cool thing about guitar amps is that you can mess with the knobs until you find the sound that you like. There is no particular way to use it, just try to find a tone that suits you. Start with gain controls down and tone knobs at 12o'clock. Turn up the gain(one at a time) to get distortion and more sustain to your sound. Turn the distortion up midrange down and treble up for metal sounds, more bass and midrange for bluesy sounds. just play around with it and you will see what I mean. Here is a guide from Fender on how to setup your guitar. If you are not sure, a good guitar tech can make any old axe feel and sound great with a good setup
unfortunately, Fender do not have an electronic copy of your owners manual to download, but you can buy one for $5 direct from them here It is only a 1 page manual.... so you will get more from just messing with it.

Musicians spend there whole lives tuning and tweaking knobs to get the sound they are looking for. It wont take you long to start doing the same.:)

Is it possible to get a FREE schematic of a Peavey Pacer Amp anywhere?


i doubt it. i have many sources for amp schematics. the time spent searching might outweigh the actual cost of just ordering it from peavey.
