    All my gear is in my basement, last week we had a flood. My sons Bronco bass (short scale) was on a stand and water got in the input jack and to the bridge. Some of the screws are a bit rusty and thereis a small crack in the body. Nothing major, it seems to play fine, for now.
    next...my Broncos 40 amp got water inside it and on the speaker. I haven't plugged it in yet (hoping it will dry).
    Third....my Peavey Grind was in it's case....which was floating on top of the water and seems to be completely dry.
    Any advice on what I should do/replace? Insurance isn't touching this.

    Leave the amp out in the sun for a few days. If you can remove the head from the chassis and open it up it will help dry it out. If it wasn't plugged into the wall it's probably ok. Any speakers that were soaked may need to be replaced though.
