Peavey Amp help...

So i have a Peavey Backstage Plus that i recently got from a pawn shop... which means no manual. my previous amp was a little 20 watt behringer, so it's a bit of a step up. but since i got it at a pawn shop... no manual or anything. so i' trying to figure 2 things out about it still - what's the 1/4 jack "PRE OUT PWR. IN" on the front nd the "FT. SW." 1/4 jack on the back for? and is there something special about the actual 1/4 inch jack on the front? cause it only works if the plug isn't pushed in all the way... TXH guys

Hi Kudos. PRE OUT. PWR IN socket is for connecting you to the mixing desk when playing live. FT.SW socket is for a footswitch that lets you change between channels, crunchy/ clean. Sounds like the retaining spring on your jack socket is a bit tired. Sometimes you can get away with gently bending the spring back in again. Make sure the mains is UN-PLUGGED before unscrewing socket from front panel. Once it's out, plug guitar lead into socket, and it should all make sense. HTH.

And welcome to Guitarsite. :)

the pedal sounds like fun... any idea as to what kind i would eed? thanks for the help!

The footswitch I have came with my Peavey Bandit 112.
Can't find a part number on it for reference, but it is a Peavey Remote Switch with two switches on it, one marked Select / Effects, the other, Reverb. Might be worth checking Peaveys' website for more info.
