Question about Amplifiers & Preamps

1 Answer

No reverb Hi robotek, I have the same problem as hoopnholler. No reverb. I accidently plugged the footswitch into the extra speaker output, but the reverb seemed to work for about a day after that. Did you mean replace the reverb tube as shown in the schematic? I noticed that it is not golwing? Should it be? Thanks

Hey mate

Dont think the wrong plugin hurt you. Is just the fickle finger of fate pointing at yo:)

All tubes should have a glow in them, the smaller ones can be a bit hard to see at times. A way to check is carefully check if it is getting hot, or at least as hot as the others. It can sometimes be a crook valve socket also. Depends on the age of the beast :) A bit of a wriggle, or a reposition in the socket can bring back the heater to one that is out from a dodgy socket. Only long term solution to a faulty socket is to replace it. I have a tiny file round that I clean em out with, but once they are crook, they give trouble. Good luck, hope you get it sorted. Let me know how you get on. Cheers mate!

How can I fix reverb?


Either the spring driver circuit blew or the SPRING INSIDE BROKE.
You gotta get in there. Take out the spring unit and check if there is a tensed spring in there. If so, check the connectors. Also check the footswitch plug in the back of the amp, plug and unplug a cable several times, sometimes it becomes dirty and does not let signals through. You can check if the reverb has no drive by tapping the spring while the amp is on and the reverb volume is up. If it sounds, your reverb is fine but not receiving input. That would be the driver circuit. Take it to a Tech and explain.... GOOD LUCK !

Opening the speaker box, Peavey KB 60 Amp


Hi...

A couple of top screws and some on the back lip of the chassis . The amp slides out but be careful not to pop the speaker leads I own a KB50 and have worked on other KB amps.

Sounds like you need a new reverb spring set.

Peavey is very good for parts

Footpedal for a Fender Princeton 112 plus amp


This one SHOULD work... use a plain 1/4 inch speaker cable to connect to the amp.

Please note that information is sparse...

I would recommend calling Musicians Frien.com or Same Day music.com and have them verify if this will work.

Hi John
For sure, can at least get an understanding of what may be wrong. You hear the power relay click in, but perhaps no secondary click of the speaker protection relay.  This is generally caused by a fault condition in the amp, resulting in a DC offset voltage being present in the speaker outputs, then detected by the protection circuit, does not allow the speakers to be connected to protect them from damage.  . How far do you want to get into it?

Bose speaker 151


Hi

I checked in the specs of the manual here. page 6. They quote it as being suitable for 4-8 ohm AMPLIFIERS. but do not mention the actual impedance. I would expect from that that the speakers must be close to 8 ohms, as you they would not advise you to connect a 4 ohm speaker to an 8 ohm output stage, as likely damage could result. If you had a multi meter, you could do a DC resistance check of the speaker, this is generally very close to the impedance. happy to talk to you more about it.

Guitar amp make large crescendo-like noise, loud pop at end.


Same loudness, no speaker? This sounds (no pun intended) like a filter capacitor shorting out. Open it up and VERY CAUTIOUSLY look for what is making the noise. Filter capacitors can eject hot stuff. Very dangerous.

Marantz curiosity question


Hi spanky

The pre power combination would be the preffered rig. Has better power output, and more bang for your buck visually with the extra amp to the rack. The meters look great too. If you can go for them, then, do it. I would :) Just let me know which unit you would like to run up and I will photoshop up a rear view to show you how to connect it together. .

Further musings on the Fender Amp no reverb problem


Hi, sorry for the delay. Sounds like a faulty cable, or the termination at the jack plug is faulty. These can create the problem you have. What model do you have again, don't remember getting that from you.

Fender deluxe reverb


Hi Hoopnholler

I would start by changing out 12AT7 (V4), is a common buffer stage to the vibrato and reverb audio path. If you have trouble identifying it, you can just swap out with a known good tube and see if it resolves your problem.
If that does not help, then time to go see an amp doctor. If youy are inclined. here is a circuit diagram that you may find useful in faultfinding the problem yourself.
.
I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) If you are still unsure, or have problems, then before you give a rating for this advice, please get back to me and we can try some more things.
Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.

1974 marantz model 2325 reciever and want to hook up a powered subwoofer ?


Hi jdwoomer

BEST WAY
Your amp has PreOut and Main In RCA connectors on the rear, you could make up an adaptor cable (or buy one) to split the post vol control signal at this point, and then use line level from here to drive the sub.

OR

Most powered subs have a speaker "high level" input, where the sub "sniffs" off signal from your speaker output. When setup like this the speakers and amp connect to the back of the Sub.

Either way, you can do it... Marantz were making nice gear back then... a collectable these days :) Any questions, I am here to help.
