Question about Peavey Music
This problem occurs at all volumes, hi and low. Has nothing to do with the reverb. Reverb level is at 0.
That unit has a digital reverb and tremolo that can not be turned OFF with your foot control, meaning this small sound card is always on. Even though that level is on "0", it is still always on. If it has a problem within it, it will put noises into your sound. I would recommend opening the amp, look for the power to the effects card and unplug it to see if it goes away. It should be a small card resembling a sound card from a computer mounted off to the side. It should have a red and a black wire plugged into it. Wiggle it and listen for a change, dirty connections on that plug could do that. Unplug it completely and listen. This would only remove the possible interference of the card, you would still have sound without effects. Regardless of the brand, those cheap effects cards are usually more trouble than they are worth. They only have a few samples of effects, not the actual effect. I hope this helps, I know it is a great sounding amp but, those effects cards are the weakness of amps today.

Check the input RCA plug going into the reverb tank (silver box with two wires connected to it). Make sure the amp is off when you do this. Sounds like the output is working fine if hitting the amp does it.

This is a common problem with this pedal experienced by allot of people. My best advice would be to sell it and put the money toward a real Fender tube amp and some good pickups. If you're trying to go cheap check out some Line 6 modeling stuff.

SOURCE: hi, i have a problem with
It sounds like the sustain is stuck on as if a sustain pedal is active. You don't mention if you have one, however if you MIGHT have one and you have used a Roland pedal, that brand is reverse sensed and would cause note to remain on.

The reverb should be quite strong. I would first look at the reverb volume pot R42 which is a 50K pot. I would also check the voltages on the test points near U4 (TLO-72 op amp tp13 and tp14) which amplifies the signal coming out of the box. It is possible the box has low power levels as well.
The problem is going to be around that section of the board if it isn't a dirty or dead(ish) pot.
The reverb should be noticeable enough to be annoying ;-]
