HIGH GAIN INPUT (1)
I
Used for most electric guitars. It is 6 dB louder than the Low Gain input.
LOW GAIN INPUT (2)
Provided for instruments that have extremely high outputs, which can result in overdriving (distorting) the High Gain
input. If both inputs are used simultaneously, the output levels are the same (both are Low Gain).
PRE GAIN (3)
Controls the input volume level of the amplifier.
PRE-EQ PATCH JACKS (4)
Provided for connecting external effects devices into the signal path. To patch an effects device, connect the send jack to
the input of the device. Connect the output of the device to the return jack. High-quality shielded cables should be used for
these connections.
OPERATION NOTE:
Volume pedals may be patched in at this point; pedal output should be patched into “return”, and “send” should be
patched into pedal input. Instrument should connect directly to high or low gain inputs when volume pedal is connected in
this configuration
LOW EQ (5)
An active tone control (shelving type, +/- 15 dB) that varies the low frequency range. CAUTION: Excessive low frequency
boost causes greater power consumption and increases possibility of speaker damage.
MID EQ (6)
A passive tone control that adjusts mid frequencies.
SHIFT (7)
Shifts and selects the frequencies at which the Mid control operates.
HIGH EQ (8)
An active tone control (peak/notch type, +/- 15 dB) that varies the high frequency range.
PRESENCE (ACTIVE) (9)
An active tone control (+I5 dB) that varies the extreme high frequency range. 0 to +15 boost (increase).
SENSITIVITY (10)
Controls the overall volume level of the amplifier. The final level adjustment should be made after the desired sound has
been achieved.
EFFECTS PATCH 1 (11)
Provided for connecting external effects devices into the signal path. To patch an effects device, connect the send jack to
the input of the device. Connect the output of the device to the return jack. High-quality shielded cables should be used for
these connections.
EFFECTS PATCH 2 (12)
Provided for connecting external effects devices into the signal path. To patch an effects device, connect the send jack to
the input of the device. Connect the output of the device to the return jack. High-quality shielded cables should be used for
these connections.
REVERB (13)
Reverberation is an echo effect. Rotate clockwise to increase the effect. Remote footswitch can control On/Off.
PILOT LIGHT LED (14)
Illuminates when AC power is being supplied to the amp.
GROUND SWITCH (15)
Three position rocker-type switch which, in most applications, should be operated in its center or zero position. There
may be some situations when audible hum and/or noise will come from the loudspeaker. If this situation arises, position
the ground switch to either positive or negative (+ or -) or until the noise is minimized. NOTE: Should the noise problem
continue, consult your Authorized Peavey Dealer, the Peavey Factory, or a qualified service technician. THE GROUND
SWITCH IS NOT FUNCTIONAL ON 220/240 VOLT MODELS.
POWER SWITCH (16)
Depress the switch to the “On” position. The red pilot light (LED) will illuminate indicating power is being supplied to the
unit.

Prices, features and specifications are subject to change without notice.
LINE CORD (17)
(120V products only)
For your safety, we have incorporated a 3-wire line (mains) cable with proper grounding facilities. It is not advisable to
remove the ground pin under any circumstances. If it is necessary to use the equipment without proper grounding
facilities, suitable grounding adaptors should be used. Less noise and greatly reduced shock hazard exists when the unit
is operated with the proper grounded receptacles.
SPEAKER JACK (18)
Provided for connection of internal and/or external speakers. Minimum total impedance is 4 ohms.
BALANCED LINE OUT (19)
Provides 600 ohm, transformer balanced signal to be used as “direct” patch into mixing consoles, tape recorders, etc. The
signal at this point has been frequency compensated for low noise operation.
PREAMP OUT/POWER AMP IN (20)
These jacks are provided for in-line patching of effects devices. To patch an effects unit, connect the Preamp Output to the
Input of the device. Next, connect the output of the device to the Power Amp Input (high-quality shielded cables must be
used for these connections). The Preamp Output can also be used to route the amplified signal to a mixing console, tape
recorder, etc. Connect the Preamp Output, using a shielded cable, to an input of the tape recorder, mixer, etc. This patch
does not affect the operation of the amplifier. NOTE: The preamp output level is approximately 1 volt RMS and is of
relatively low impedance (600 ohms). Any effects device used in this effects loop must be capable of receiving 1 volt input
and providing 1 volt output in order to properly drive the power amp. The Power Amp Input has an internal switch which
disconnects the internal preamp.
FOOTSWITCH JACK (21)
Provided for connection of the supplied remote footswitch. Footswitch is used to defeat reverb, post effects loop 1, and
post effects loop 2.
