The adaptor is not designed to supply enough power for your amp.

Peavey 6505 plus buzz...even when all controls on zero and no guitar plugged in


Sounds like a bad power supply filter cap...the buzz you're hearing is the 60 cycles hum that filter caps reduce or (hopefully) eliminate altogether. It may also be related to the tubes but finding the bad one will require some work. Any friends have this same amp? If so, try swapping one tube at a time and see if you get lucky. If this amp is new take it back ASAP as it is a manufacturing defect.

Peavey Problems


Check speaker impedance or disconnect speaker leads, then use a 9V battery to verify cone movement and if this test is ok, then go inside the amp, if there's no fuses blown check opamps supply voltage which should be -15V at pin-4 and +15V at pin-8, let me know your results to help improvement.

Check power supply fuse inside cabinet, if this is ok you may have good reasons to suspect that your power module got fried.

No sound


You would NOT use a stereo cable to plug in your guitar.

The stereo cable would carry the battery voltage back to the amp and MAYBE cause the fuse to blow.

You use a MONO instrument cable for your guitar.

The ring connection is use to complete the circuit to turn on the battery in most guitars.

Replace the fuse ONCE and get the proper instrument cable (NOT consumer audio cable) for your guitar.

If fuse blows again, take amp to shop for service.

Peavey banit 65 guitar amp. When turned on it makes a loud almost feedback sound with out anything pluged into it.


A few things can cause it. Bad ground\bad power supply filter capacitor\bad low level op amp IC. You most likely have a bad power supply or trouble at your input jack. Good luck!
