Huge Thank you to contributors on this forum - Peavey 1.3K alive again.

Good evening all,

This is my first post here and my first amplifier repair. If it weren't for the details I found here on DIY Audio I would have missed critical bad parts and probably found them the hardest way by damaging new parts.

I revived my old Peavey 1.3k that has been sitting in a failed state for nearly a decade. I found that it failed big time as they tend to do it seems. I found and replaced nearly 55 parts across the drive and output boards. I have a bit more work to do on it, I have a few more electrolytic caps that I am going to replace just due to age but I did a low power test and found that I have clean audio on both and channels.

As I found discussed here, I am going to install an accessory fuse block to add fuses between the rectifiers and the output board to ideally prevent so much damage should an output transistor fail again.

Thank you to the contributors in this thread:
