Peavey XR600 amp oscillation

    I am working on a PV xr 600 mixer amp that has two amplifier channels
    on the same board. I replaced smoked and shorted components and the
    amp does work but it clips early and oscillates on the negative swing
    of the wave form at about -20 volts driving an 8 ohm load. Funny
    thing is the waveform is perfect if I touch the heatsink that mounts
    one the driver transistors. There is also no trace of oscillation with
    no load.
    Any one have experience with this??

    No help on the problem but, if you need the schematic, all I need is an
    email addy and I'll fire it off to you.

    I worked on a peavey power amp that had blown output transistors - replaced
    the output trannies and the trannies in the previous stage - but output was
    very low on one channel - turned out there was a small signal transistor
    blown that was causing the output limiting circuit to cut in

    hope this helps
