Default Peavey EVH 5150 .

And since the owner installed a bias pot i wonder if the owner tried to do a mod on this amp to where it can use EL34s... If theyve done that ...it would explain why the amp isnt working . i mean it uses 6L6s , but there is a mod to configure this amp to use EL34s. Apparently the pot that was installed to set the bias has to use a 15 ohm resister along with a 5 ohm resister all connected to the pot . But for EL34s the screen resisters needed to be changed to 1k and pin one on the EL34 tubes needs to be grounded to pin 8 or to ground. I will check all of this tomorrow and call the customer on the mod. Because no wonder the amp wouldnt work if is in fact been modded to except EL34S.

it's more of a question as to whether or not there is any voltage there or not rather then exact quantity.
