Q: I just bought a crate vfx 5212. When I plug a pedal in the fron end, I get a signal that sounds like 2 different sounds. For instance - I plug the guitar in a fulltone mosefet (it can be any pedal though), the pedal into the amp. The sound that comes out is a distorted sound from the pedal as well as a clean signal. You can hear them both at the same time. What is causing this to happen? It does the same if it is on the dirty channel as well. It will have the distortion sound of the amp mixed with distortion of the pedal but it sounds like 2 different signals and not gain on top of gain. Not sure if this makes any sense so I will sum it up like this. If I was running in stereo (2 different amps) and I had one distorted and one clean, that is the sound coming out of one amp when a pedal is plugged in.

Q: Hello.!! I own a Peavey classic 30 and i'm wondering if i connect a footswitch (dpsw) parallel to the boost switch of the main circuit will it work? I mean, will it work to on n off the boost with the footswitch?
Thank you for your time!

Q: Hi there, Loving the Classic 30 and all the while I know I can get way better tone out of it by making a few changes. I've just bought on ebay a Hellatone speaker, (modded G12-H) which I'm sure is gonna make a huge difference. But I'de like to try different preamp tubes, which some of I have around like 12at 12au, etc for the O/D section. But am wondering which tubes to change up as I'm looking at the back of my Classic 30.

Q: Hi Steve, Thank you for all the info.I'm about to have my tech mod my peavey classic 30 combo.Since there is also info on the Crate V33 head here,i was wondering if Orange caps in the peavey would get the tone more open and clear (similar to the Crate V33)
I like the punchier quality of the peavey.
Also it is safe to put the dummy plug in the back of the peavey speaker out without any other mods? Thanks , Ki

Q: I don't know if it was to you but I've ask this before but didn't get a reply.

Some History - Before I finally got my Peavey Classic 50 410 with ext cab peavey 15" - I was playing around with $60 Ebay SS amps and came across a great sound until it started blowing power trans. I played tele into $40 Gainiac tube preamp chain out to $60 Fender Deluxe 112 Plus and chain out to my $60 Kustom 60 W bass amp. Incredible sound but damage to power transistor in the Kustom Bass amp. I fixed it. I was still looking for that tube sound so I broke down and spent the big money for my buddy's Peavey rig. Love it but miss that huge bass support I was getting from my SS chain.

I would like to find that great bass support from my 15" ext cab without damaging anything.

Question 1. - I guess I could safely mic out to the Kustom bass amp OR Can I isolate amp output in the Peavey 410 sending lows to the 15" ext cab and highs to the 410 by installing caps (?) into the speaker output.

Question 2. Amp too big for my home so - THinking of a Volume Box for the Peavey classic 50 410 to get that great sound without neighbors calling the cops. Do products like THe Volume Box where the amp runs full but controled with the VB stress the amp causing new tubes and trannies.

Q: Have you tried changing the Peavey Classic 30 output tubes to cathode bias? Have you tried running the amp on two power tubes?
