    Greetings. I've recently picked up a Peavey Super Festival 800b in hopes to nail the DFA 1979 sound, and was disappointed to find that I purchased a 1974 and not a 1972 version with the insane distortion circuit that Jesse Keeler is known to use. Does anyone here know how to modify the circuit to the earlier version? And does anyone have the schematics from the earlier version? I can't seem to find them anywhere on the web. Thanks for the help in advance!

    Call my good friend at Peavey (601) 486-1124 (Anthony - Tell him Geri O sent ya....:D) and pose this question to him. He's the National service manager at the Peavey service center in Meridian. He may know where that schematic can be found.

    Be aware that oddly, some documents for older gear have come up missing or was never properly archived, for whatever reason.
