check for cold solder joints from the input jacks and the fader. If any look suspicious (dull or grainy) re-solder.

SOURCE: my amp has 2 channels, clean and distortion.

I have same problem where distortion works but clean doesn't on same amp. What might be helpful for someone to help me is that sometimes the clean does work.

I don't believe there is a power "outlet" on this, only an "inlet".

Usually the inlet will have a lead, often green, that goes to the chassis.

There will usually be two other wires, often black and white that connect to the other two pins.

From the back of the connector, with the center pin tied to the grenn wire of the triangle lower, the pin to the right should be the white and the pin to the left is the black wire

You may simply be overdriving the clean channel and causing it to "flat top" . See if it occurs when you back the gain down a bit. New tubes PROBABLY will not help and be a waste of money. You may be unconciously playing harder during the popping episodes. You cannot hear level variations smaller than about 3 Db BUT the electronics will sense much smaller variations. You could gently tap the tubes with a lead pencil to listen for any pops... NOTE: tubes can be slightly microphonic so some sound from tapping is normal.


Yes, a cable can be noisy and not show itself when using intentio0nal distoprtion... try another to verify it is not the problem.

SOURCE: Wires to main speaker are, Yellow & Blue

Yellow should be the positive. Try plugging in and reversing. The louder of the two is the one in phase and the correct wiring. If the speaker is pushing out when playing , it is in phase and correct also.
The distortion problem could be a speaker going out. It may not be totally blown, but may be verging.
Holding your hand out as wide as you can push against the speaker lightly. If there is a rubbing or scratching sound, the speaker could be damaged.If it moves freely, and there is no scratching its okay.
Another possibility is the clean channel may have a channel volume set to high. Make sure the clean channel volume is set lower than the master volume otherwise you can get distortion on that channel too.
Good Luck.

I only have a vintage Peavey XR600B and I want to connect and ipod and ipad up to it so I can play music. Can I do this or do I need special cables?


Sure you can, but that mixer amp is a mono amp instead of stereo. Head for radio shack and get an 1/8" stereo male phone jack to 1/4" female mono adaptor. Plug the adaper into the headphone output of your device. Then run a shielded cable with 1/4" mono phone plugs on both ends (like an electric guitar would use) from the device to one of the channels on the Peavey. Bring the volume up on both the channel and master on the amp up maybe 1/3 the way. Play a track on your device and adjust the devices out put as high as it will go with out distorting the channel input. Then adjust the amp's channel and main output as you would normally to get the final volume you need.

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.

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.

I have a peavey bandit 112 transtube guitar amplifier. Ive had it for nearly 15 years, but over the last few its become quite noisy when turned on even if nothing is plugged into the input. This is on both...


This has several vacuum tubes and those are suspect. Take a pencil and tap the glass of the smaller tubes to look for noise changes. You may have to take off the tube metal shield to do this.
If you have got 15 years of life from the tubes that is great. Also suspect are electrolytic filter caps.
If you are not electronically adept, take it in for repair.
