Bass amp settings

I am interested in learning how tho set my bass amplifier to achieve different sounds. When I first bought a peavey amp (in 1986!) it came with a guide for settings that created appropriate sounds for rock, blues, slap, etc. I now play a 1978 Peavey Mark III, and would like some similar information

    I have a Peavey Mark III 400 watt bass amp that my bass player is borrowing. I'm not very happy with the sound we are getting from it. I believe some of it is in the way he sets the EQ on it. This amp has a lot more bells and whistles then my old Fender guitar amps do. Does anyone have any suggestions? By the way, we are a high energy Blues band, (think Allman Bros./Johnny Winter/Luther Allison). Thanks

    I'm having problems with power drain with the peavey tour 700 bass amp. I read that I should remove the triad chip from the amp. How is this done, and what was the point of the chip in the first place if it has to be removed?

For rock and slapping you are going to want to set the Bass and Treble controls high and the Mids low. For music such as Jazz you are going to want more mids so that your sound will be fatter. If there is a button marked "Mid-Scoop" you'll want that on when slapping.

How to set up for bandit 75

What do you by setup for? Are you looking for certain settings to get a certain sound? I'd do a search for the player's name + amp settings. I would try the tone controls first if I was trying to tailor the sound. Try to adjust treble bass, midrange, and try with the volume down and the tone controls all the way up and reduce from there.

I have a Peavey MAX 112 Bass Combo amp. When I turn on the amp and have it plugged into the cord and bass, it immediately begins emitting a "whump whump" sound similar to the sound a beating...

The amp is doing what is called "motorboating". This is usually caused when the voltages to sensitive preamp stages are inadequately filtered or regulated and the sudden load of the output stages cause a dip in the voltages sent to the preamps which in turn vary the input to the output stages starting the cycle over. This will require electronic troubleshooting and if your not skilled in that, then it is NOT a DIY fix. What you are seeing is NOT normal, there is a defect.

Peavey TNT115 AMP cuts out

The problem is in amplifier section caused by change value resistor or leak capacitor or cold ,loose or crack solder joint parts this the common problem of over heating and shuts out the amplifier caused by abnormal distribution of current,try to check all the capacitor and resistor and replaced the defected parts ,so your receivers works normal again.

Hope it may help you;

Ive bought a Peavey 1500 pa amplifier and would like to know are the a b knobs on the front treble and bass.If they are how would I take the outputs at the back of the amp to my Soundcraft mixer.

The Peavey A/B controls are output gain controls. Your mixers stereo output goes into the amps inputs, channels A & B. The Peavey is the output stage to your speaker system. If you you connect the outputs from a power amp to the inputs of a mixer you will blow the mixers input stage, amongst many other things and possibly damage the amplifier too. The bias (Bass, Mid, Treble controls) are on the mixer, not the amplifier. Unless you are using a mixer amp, which you are not. A PA system DOES NOT work in the same way as an intergrated hi fi amp.

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.

Peavey Bass amp 115

HI Subicbay,

ADjust your Gain setting to limit just enough so the amp does not go into Protect mode. Turn your Gain all the way down, then crank up the bass from your system. GRadually turn up the gain until you trip on protect. Turn the gain back a notch and your set for no more protect.
