    My grandfather was given this amp as partial payment. I don't remember the whole story, I don't even know if this thing works. He Dosent play. He says it works, but almost all the pots are busted. It's got the Scorpion speakers still. What's it worth?
     
  2. Probably $100 if it works properly. I bought mine at a pawn shop for $38.

    add-> Sorry, I read too fast. With most of the knobs broken you're in the $50 range. Basically you are selling a speaker because the knobs on these are very difficult to replace.

    I can't just replace the pots?

    Call Peavey, see if they have them. They are likely the type that solder into the circuit board.

    I got this for $25. Beat to hell, all the pot shafts are broke. Still works.

    All the parts are still available if you decide to go that route. You could also pull the chassis and send it in for refurb.
     
  6. The main problem is that, even with proper repairs it's still just a $100 used amp. Given the cost of repairs and/or time, if you are keen on soldering on circuit boards, it's hard to see how you would come out ahead.
     
  7. You may have a bigger problem: if the pots were busted hard, they may have cracked the printed circuit board they're soldered to. Fixable also, but even more $.

    There comes a point where some things are not worth repairing. Unfortunately that amp may be past the point of economical repair.

    Well I am not supposed to tell you what it is worth unless you pay membership here, but even in mint working condition it would be worth maybe $200 if you got lucky and found the right buyer... so you can base it off that...

    Oh whoops. I still would like to know thoughts on the amp.

    You got my deal about the nail? Pretty rigged up, but it makes it so you can turn the pots. Mine has plastic pot shafts. If you try to drill in metal ones, the bit will probably grab it too hard, spin the pot around and break it, and maybe the circuit board along with it. Forgot to mention, only try that if you have plastic shafts and a sharp bit.
