Missing Knobs on my Peavey Amp.


I have a Peavey xrd 680 s PLUS, which I know is a discontinued model. Over the years it has lost a lot of it's knobs. I don't want to replace it because of this as it works brilliantly. Can you tell me if there is anywhere I can get spare knobs? I have tried all the obvious places I can think of!

That was a dumass response and not helpful. I have the same amp and same problem. If you don't have an answer, own up to it.

Dear Louisa,

Knobs can be replaced by almost a new types. All you have to make sure is if the type of holes it has, knurlled, sloted or plain half moon types. Substitutes with similar size would be the best alternative.

Auto shut off hot

A faulty transistor or IC that has failed, it probably overheats before any other device. You should shut the amp down when it happens, then feel carefully around for the hottest part. I would replace that. Or you can power the amp back up wait till it acts up, then spray that hot part with Servisol Freezer spray. If it comes back on, then you know it's faulty. If not try another part, with the spray, only one at a time.

Peavey XRD 680 wont power up

Fuses blow because of an overload. Generally caused by a short circuit transistor(s) in the power amp section. Easy to spot with an ohm meter it will be like you have touched the test probes together!

How to fix a gt5 peavey rockmaster amplifier

Hi. My name is Danielle and I have a peavey rockmaster GT-5 guitar mini amp, and it can work with/without the cable. I lost the cable and I didn't need to worry because the amp still worked as long as it had good batteries. But, after about 4 months of no use of it, I put in a brand new battery and the light wouldn't turn on. I looked all over the amp to see if something was missing but I found nothing. I'm really not sure what to do because this is a very good amp and I'd hate to throw it away. Can anyone Help Me?

Peavey 115 Low hum Low volume from input

The preamp section has a problem. It could be anything in the preamp but is OFTEN the input jack itself. They take a lot of abuse.

Also the insert jack contacts that forward the preamp to the power amp if no external FX are used can go bad.

Additional things are circuit board cracks caused by rough handling and also controls that have had the knobs mashed in which can destroy the potentiometers they are connected to.
