Hi guys -
I'd not noticed it, mostly because I use an effects loop, but the reverb on my Classic 50 is not working. It's one of those "tank in a bag" things that sits in the bottom of the cabinet beneath the speakers.
Anyway, I ran through several tests including using a foot switch to toggle back and forth - nothing seemed to work. I pulled the tank out of the bag and was able to make it "splash" by moving it around, so I figure the output is working - am I right there?
So, since all of the wires seem to be connected, the springs are present and connected, the RCA plugs are at the input and output points, and the 4-prong connector is solid and well connected, my next step would be to replace the IC chip (I read about this, I don't know jack about amplifier electronics.) It's a $2 item at Radio Shack apparently - TL082 is what I read on the Peavey forum.
If it's not that, then it has to be before the chip (bad pot, etc,) right? Hope my thinking is sound but if it's not, please tell me.
Any input is valuable. Thanks -
I would test the chip first, before replacing it. You gotta watch out on some of those ICs for the suffix on them as well. Pull up the datasheet for one, and it should give you numbers to help make sure you're getting what you need to the chip.
