Peavey Triumph 120

Hi Guys

I am based in the UK and have a Triumph 120. I recently revalved the amp with nice valves... front end Groove Tubes 12ax7m.... back end Harma 6L6. The bottom end has dropped out after 4 weeks . I heard that this amp is notorious for this. Any ideas?

1968 bonnie. Tried to start the bike this morning after putting it away for winter. Put the tappets down to provide fuel and the gas just started pouring out the tubes coming out of the carburetors.

Hi, Jeff and the usual suspects are:
1. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
2. Loose float bowl screws.
3. Damaged float bowl o-ring.
4. improper fuel level in the float bowl.
5. Worn or dirty inlet valve or seat.
6. Damaged or leaking float assembly.
7. Particle contamination in inlet fitting cavity.

Volume issue

Tubes run hot in order to function. They degrade over time unlike transistors which usually work or don't work.
You should keep some spares around especially if you are out doing gigs.
Guessing at which tube is bad will be expensive.
With the renewed use of tubes in amps, there may be some tube testing available at a music store. Call around and see. Pull all you tubes and go test them.

I have a peavey classic 20 guitar amp that works as normal when switching on but after a couple of minutes the power amp tubes (EL84's) just switch off. What could the problem be?

What do you mean they "switch off"??? If the heaters in all the tubes go out, check the fuse for the heaters, F2 and its fuse clips/holder.

There really is nothing in the circuit to make them "switch off"

If the heaters in the EL34's "switch off", the other tubes should go out as well.

Hi, Peavey Classic Guitar amp , Has NO SOUND

Hi Mike,

If you switch on the amplifier, do you hear nothing at all?
Or do you hear low level noise or hum out of the speaker?
Don't know if you're technician.
If the tubes are glowing, you can measure the high voltage.
Check also fuse 3 and 4, thats the neg. voltage -27V and -14V.

No sound - peavey bravo 112

I'm assuming that no sound applies to both the clean and ultra modes. You didn't say which tubes you replaced but I'm guessing the input tube was not replaced. Did you keep the old tubes? When "no sound comes out", do you hear any kind of a low level hum on the speaker output? I think the front end tube is open or the switch logic switch is defective. Hope this helps.
