Step 1. Contact Peavey customer service and buy the new pot.
Step 2. Disassemble the amp to get to the pot. Typically this is the hard part.
Step 3. Remove the old pot. A trick may help here: I sometimes cut the legs of the old pot with a Dremel cutting disc, then I can desolder and remove the old leg remnants one at a time. The printed circuit traces are somewhat delicate so I don't want to try to remove three legs at once. I use desoldering braid, from Parts Express. Other folks use solder suckers.
Step 4: Solder in the new pot.
Step 5: Reassemble.
This is exactly what I would write - excellent post...
FWIW, I've repaired a few amps in similar circumstances - including amps by Peavey, G-K, and Ampeg... I have a very good pair of flush cutting mini diagonal cutters, and usually have better luck cutting the legs with those rather than a dremel/cutoff wheel setup, but have done that too...
