    I thought so too Dave, but I have only been able to find a user manual for
    download. It's not desperately important. Just one of my mate who runs the
    shop's customers, who wants a jack putting on the back panel to take out
    signal just ahead of the master vol. I just wanted to have a quick look at
    exactly how it was configured around that bit of the circuit, just to see
    what I was dealing with impedance wise etc.

    A freebie download would be a great thing, but Peavey sells their schematics for
    only $2.50 US... seems a pittance if it can save you an hour or two of circuit
    tracing. I've bought several schematics from them.. they are very friendly and
    ship immediately.
    Their service folks are quite easy to talk to as well... if you don't mind the
    phone charges, give them a call and they will prolly be glad to chat for a few
    minutes.

    Cheers!!!

    and how good are their schematics? are we talking about reprints ,
    copies that you can hardly make out or what?

    cause, it would be nice to know where I could do a clear print of a
    PDF at an economical cost. I tried a couple of outfits and they take
    you for a ride with schematics that are hardly readable and sometimes
    incomplete, or they are not the service schematics but only the
    single fold that you some times find in user books.

    OK, thanks all anyway. As I said, not sweating it, more for interest really.
    I dare say that my mate is probably actually a dealer, and could get the
    service info direct here in the UK, if it turned out to actually be needed.
    As he is a biggish shop selling nothing but instruments and amplification,
    he is a dealer for most common makes, and we don't usually have trouble
    getting service info for anything that we have in for repair. I haven't even
    pulled the chassis out of the box yet, but I'm not expecting anything
    elaborate. It's only a single speaker half-size cab. Not much more than a
    practice amp really ...

    I see that you're wanting to get a tap off pre master volume control?
    You can probably just pull it off the outer tags of the pot via a
    capacitor - but you knew that already :^)

    That was my thought, Ron. It's slightly more complicated than that in that
    he would like a screwdriver-slot level pot on the back for the new output,
    as well, which is why I just wanted to have a quick squint at the resistor
    values around the area, to pick a suitable value pot that's not going to
    compromise anything that's already going on there. I'm sure it will all be
    apparent when I pull it to bits and have a shufty. Thanks for your interest.

    Peavey's schematics are full sized, high quality prints. Not copies, nor
    reduced to the point of illegibility. They are usually on 11X17 (high quality)
    paper, on multiple sheets if the circuitry is too complex to get onto a single
    sheet. I have a couple schematics on 8.5X11 paper of some very simple
    equipment. I have to say that I've only bought schematics for solid-state
    equipment, which is significantly more complex than tubed equipment.
    When I received the first schematic that I bought from them, I was amazed by the
    quality. I don't hesitate to order from them if I even remotely think I'll need
    a schematic. If you buy from Peavey, you will NOT be disappointed.
    Yes, it would be nice to be able to download a PDF, but I think you'd be more
    disappointed with that than with a paper print.

    No, I'm not affiliated with Peavey.. . just a satisfied customer.
    Cheers!!!
