I have a Peavey Classic 30 combo amp (tubed). There's a channel switch button on the amp that is meant to toggle between the clean and distortion channels. However when I attempt to toggle from clean to distorted, I get no distortion. The tone stays clean. I've had the amp for about 5 years now and it used to work with no problems. How can I get the amp to properly switch to the distortion channel? Is it something I can do myself, or will I need to take it to a music shop
With a couple of my smaller Peaveys, the amp. switch works in conjunction with the footswitch. When the amp. switch is 'on', the footswitch will then toggle between clean/dirty. You may have inadvertently switched the footswitch, which you may or may not usually use.Check the instructions (downloads available) before doing anything drastic. Do not swear at it - amps are very sensitive ...
