    Any one know where I can get a schematic for a Peavey Ultra 120 Amp?

    Yes, but you have to pay for 'em. I don't know if I want the amp, so I'm not really willing to pay... just hoping someone had one or knew where I could find them (for free)

    What's wrong with it?
     
  5. I think he is being like me and wants to see how it works before be buys it:)

    I do it too and compare the designs to see who else has a comparable signal path. Then shop according to price.

    Very lengthy process, but I have fun looking at and messing with "guts".

    Me too. In this case, there is a block diagram at the Peavey website, showing a largely solid state amp with a handful of tube gain stages.

    Really? Should be all tube, except for the silly built-in distortion effects. From what I can glean from other forums and websites, it's the successor to the butcher, peavey's answer to the JCM 800. I just wanted to see what I was getting into if I bought the thing.
     
  8. Some boast tube gain this tube gain that... When you pick up a schematic and see that it has gone through 12 transistors and a processing chip, I don't care how many tubes are in it - It is still solid state in my mind.

    Is that bad? No! Just make an informed buying decision based upon what the thing really does. Helps to alleviate frustration when buying stuff over net that you have never heard before.

    I completely agree. That's why I wanted the schematic, to see if the signal is processed through any kind of silicon, and if it is, to see if there is a way to remove it from the circuit.

    I hope it's generally the same as the butcher, because those things make a silverface twin reverb look like the space shuttle! There must be about 50 components in the whole thing!

    Looks like I was mistaken.

    Yeah, I found that earlier... why the hell can't they just print the bloody schematic?! Not like the good old days, I have some Bogen manuals that are right to the point, tell you everything you need to know.

    Back in the 80's, Peavey still sent out schemo's for free.

    They have quite a few listed for free on their website, but if what what you want isn't on the website, you gotta pay, and wait for them to mail it to you.
