    Help with Peavey Artist VT series

    First time post for me here. I am a converted drummer so be nice! Know what you call a guy that hangs with musicians? A drummer! Anyway, I have acquired this awesome Peavey Artist VT Series model 115 BW Artist that sounded awesome when I first got it home, with the exception of a few scratchy pots. Unable to spray them from the front, I disassembled and cleaned the case and sprayed the pots from the inside. Cleaned everything with the exception of anything inside. It looked very clean for being thirty something years old in there. Problem is my auto mix and bright outputs suck now. Hardly no volume. Some but not much. Also I might mention that my reverb feeds back violently when turned up. Turned down, no problem. Also I might mention that the main output on back is supposed to be connected to a 8 ohm speaker. The speaker however is a 4 ohm. Uncomfortably enough, it was plugged into the 8 ohm jack when I got it (oh shit). Anyone to help me start troubleshooting this? Obviously I am not an expert, but I can read schematics, solder and have a general idea of whats going on in there. Thanks and any advice is appreciated.

    You either posted this somewhere else here, or maybe over at Peavey. Wherever it was I already responded there and me and my can of beer don't feel like repeating at the moment, so go look at the other place. I left a few suggestions.

    That's cool. I have been a drummer for 35 years, so I have heard most of them!

    Gotta have a little fun with the serious stuff or the serious stuff is....well to serious!

    Drumdood Thanks

    Your the bomb!! Just glad you understood where I was coming from on that post and I meant only for a good time.

    Link to the other thread on the other site for us to go and read there too. That would be cool too. I really just wanted to read more about where you had posted about this amp. Good luck!

    P.S. As a drummer I bet those jokes are even funnier! My drummer would have never tried to help me fix an amp!! So you must be the best drummer ever!!
