Peavey Backstage 30 - on-off switch - UK

Post by Douglas » Thu Aug 11, 2022 4:56 am


I’m looking to replace a switch that has gone faulty on an amp it is an on – off switch with four soldered prongs.

Written on the side of the switch is;

2A 250V AC-DC
4A 125V AC-DC

Can you suggest a replacement from anywhere in the UK please

I do not know about UK specific, but there is a place in Europe that Roger listed who may have it. See RS Components (Europe).

If that switch is not totally dead but just not working correctly try unplugging the amp and spraying some contact cleaner inside it and working it a few times. Might have to do it more than once.

If it has to be replaced that switch is nothing special. You already have the voltage and amp values, measure the hole its mounted in. Check with any shop that sells electronic parts. Vacuum Cleaner repair shops usually carry a variety of toggle and rocker switches.
