    My amps reverb just stopped working. When I turn it up it gets just static and I can't hear the guitar. I was thinking it may be the pot? Any other ideas.

    Is this your peavey?

    In all serious, crank the reverb to halfway or 3/4 and give it a firm thump/kick. If it makes a huge "SPPPPPRRRRROOOOIIIINNNNGGGGG" sound then its your preamp....if it doesn't then there's a dodgy connection between preamp and spring unit.

    Don't do it too hard though. With about the same force you'd apply to tamp down an awkward Ikea flatpack shelf, say. :D

    I just did it and no sproing sound, just the hum.

    Can this be moved to the gear forum please?
