How to remove amp from cabinet? reverb doesn't work.

I just bought a used Peavey KB-60 amp. Input 1 jack cracks and pops, other three seem ok. Reverb doesn't work, just adds noise. I want to check the amp section but after removing 4 screws on top, amp section moves, but won't come out. I need to disconect speakers from amp section to remove, but how is that done? Are screws for speaker baffle behind vertical aluminum trim on either side of cabinet front? How is baffle removed to disconnect speakers and remove amp section for service? Any thoughts on reverb section? Spring? Electronic? Service manual available?

SOMETIMES the handle screws must be removed as well.

I have taken a lot of these out and the key is to figure out which direction it comes out... MOST are out the back and sometimes a board across the back has to be taken off with four screws to clear a transformer.

FIGHTING getting the thing out when it catches on the Tolex covering is the USUAL problem. Takes patience and sometimes a blade to hold the Tolex back.

USUALLY the speaker baffle stays in place.

    Be aware that some are actually also glued in addition to all these screws. I just pulled the amp from a Peavey VK212 combo and it required breaking the glue seal where it meets the top of the amp cabinet. Also had 4 small screws on the back lip and 4 on the sides plus the handle screws to take out in order to get the amp free.

There are two more screws on the back of the electronics that need to be removed. then pull the unit out from the back just enough to get to the speaker connection. There should be one more connector for the spring unit mounted inside the speaker cabinet. To remove the grill it easy after the electronics are removed grab the grill from the top and pull hard. Its mounted with hook and loop connections. I'm willing to bet your spring unit has been removed. I purchased a used one as well and my reverb didn't work, I discovered the spring unit was removed.
Hope this helps.

I have a Peavey XR-600 PA Head, I would like to know if and how can I connect a MX 200 Dual Reverb Effects Processor to the PA Head?


If it has a effects loop output and input on the p.a. head and a in and out on the reverb effects processor, then yes you can, just run the effects loop output signal into the input on your reverb processor, out of the output back into the input effects loop on the p.a. head, kinda like you would a effects pedal thru the effects loop of a guitar amplifier. hope this helps!

The reverb quit working on my envoy 110


hi,

This issue could be a cracked solder joint on the reverb circuitry or because of the opamp driver in the same circuit, let me know further.

So when I'm using this RV-5 reverb pedal, input A seems to be fuzzy and give out a faint B flat like it's not connecting but i still get sound through it. It also pops and crunches A LOT when you...


Open and look for broken solder at the jack... common occurence when people step on plugs or cables going into these. Also look for circuit board cracks around the connector and also around the power input connector.

Amp is little used and now the reverb is not working. It is never moved from the room where I play.


There are only TWO op-amps and the tank involved with the reverb. Both of those are in one IC chip labeled "U2". It is a TL072.

Pin 1 of that chip is the output to the tank and pin 7 is the inout of the reverb control pot that then goes into the power amp.

They resistively mix the delayed reverb signal with the straight signal at the input of the power amp.

I assume you have turned up the reverb control which is just a volume control for the signal going through the tank.

There are so few parts involved with this that a failure is really rare.

Fix Reverb unit on Fender Hot-Rod Deluxe Amp


Could have broken a spring in the reverb tank, or a wire connecting it to the amp, or the reverb driver tube, or a few other things, but those are the most likely in this situation. Thats what I'd check first. Give it a little slap and if it vibrates like normal, your spring is probably ok, you can still open it up and double check though. Check your wires. Then pull your reverb driver tube and replace it. If that doesn't work, it is probably in the circuit somewhere, and you should not work on your amp unless you know what you are doing. They store large amounts of electicity in the caps and they can kill you.

Hi my Marshal G15 is making an echoy twang when played loud (& open E chords). does this mean the reverb is broken?


I suspect the vibration when it is loud is vibrating a reverb tank within the unit.

Test this bylistening with headphones and see if you get same sound.

It may be the reverb has a resonance or the cabinet does that is sensitive to your E chords.

The shock mounting of the reverb may have failed to isolate the reverb tank from speaker vibrations... hence the headphone test.

Peavey classic chorus 212 buzzes, sguelches, squeals...


There MAY be a circuit trace on a board that is cracked OR a poor soldered connection. It is vibration sensitive as you have found. Changing a switch vibrates the unit.

Depending on what you have connected, this could even ba a bad input jack.

The unit needs to be serviced. You could open it and see if there is something obvious.

Crate 100 head. Reverb doesn't work.


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.
