Old peavey amp cutting out

I have a pretty old peavey bass amp and it cuts out alot. whenever i hit it on the top it sometimes works. it will work at very low volumes.

    I have a KB100 Peavey that has the same problem. Had it in the shop a month ago and they said they fixed a couple of loose connections, but the problem showed back up in the middle of a gig. NOT GOOD! I can also play at lower volumes and when it cuts out, I have to bash the top of the combo and sometimes it comes back on. Any ideas?

Start with a clean setting - zero cut and zero gain on the Eq. Play a song close to the amp, and then move away, playing the same notes. Do you still get the distortion? Change lower the input gain and repeat the test. Lower the output gain and repeat. Are any outboard distortion pedals in the mix, such as overdrive? Eliminate them. Run straight through from your axe to the amp. Check for any distortion settings. Set everything including reverb to zero. When the distortion disappears, this is your base setting.
Change only ONE parameter at a time. When the distortion comes back, you have found your problem.+

Eq on channel a doesn't work on 2 units


It could be an internal ground connection on the EQ that's broken ( maybe inside the connector) ..I repaired numerous peavey products and broken grounds are common.

One out of the two microphones is intermittent.


Hi Ken....

I just fixed one of those but not for the same issue.

The manual is on the peavey site (archived)

That will tell you if there's a VOX ckt inside.

If opening the case doesnt scare you, open it ( UNPLUGGED) and reseat the ICs(integrated curcuits) that are socketed

GETTING BETTER SOUND QUALITY


An equaliser is, put simply, a more complex tone control, giving you the ability to cut or boost more specific frequencies than a tone knob, or bass & treble controls.

It comes in handy for tweaking the sound from your hi-fi to just the way you like it. But beware, as it can make your hi-fi produce sounds that are so bass or treble heavy, that you can damage your speakers if you're not careful.

Adding another compnent into the chain (like a graphic EQ) can add a little background noise but this Technics EQ is a pretty quiet one & you probably won't notice the noise apart from when there's no music playing & you've got the amp turned up high.
