    I play through a 1980s era Peavey Mk. VI.

    I've had it for a couple years and am only starting to figure out how to dial in all the cool tones I like. Nothing super fancy about it either. Has the sliding EQ controls, high and low gain inputs, compression, compound chorus, etc. Got it for a steal too, paid $400 for it and three cabs. Sucker really roars when I want it to.

    Hard to say exactly.

    For reference here's my '73 F800B.


    Peavey keeps an *excellent* database of owners manuals, maybe worth a look.

    Here's the link:

    Good luck with your search! :)

    Hmm, that's a good one. Here's a pic of a Series 400, getting warmer? :confused::)


    And I'm not sure what exactly this one is called, but here it is anyway. :)


    Maybe you could check out some of these threads, someone there may have the model like the one you're looking for.

    What are the best amps Peavey ever made?

    I own the F8000B in my first post, the rest are just pics I found on the internets! ;)

    Hopefully if we can identify your old amp you'll be able to search for one similar on ebay or craigslist.

    If You have, or can borrow, a digital camera, it's just point and shoot really ;).

    In the close up or macro mode the results are satisfactory IMLE.
