GENERAL SERVICING WORK CARRIED OUT ON FOUR PEAVEY AMPS


Hello everybody. 

Many amps come through the workshop for fairly normal general servicing and other small adjustments, faults, or modifications. Whilst I always try to include on the website as many different brands and models of the various brands for your interest, I  decided to include a few different Fender models into one article, and  this proved successful. I have therefore now used the same format for four Peavey amplifiers.

I have seen and serviced plenty of Peavey’s in my time. I have included here in the one article four typical models that have passed through the workshop within the past few months; all for general servicing and odd faults.

I have always liked Peavey products. They always perform as quoted and tend to be very reliable. If I were to have any complaint about them at all it would be the frequent use of interconnecting plugs and “fly leads” between the various panels/circuit boards. Though the plugs are pretty good quality, they grip really well and generally are trouble-free for a long time. However, after time and especially when they have been subjected to damp situations such as coming out of a warm venue and loaded into a van during cold winter spells, condensation tends to form on these said plugs/sockets. This in time turns to corrosion and hence….the start of problems! Keeping them well serviced and checked out for this type of corrosion will give many years of trouble free operation.

I have added any comments worth noting on the various photo captions……..enjoy the photos.

Thanks for looking, John.
