Re: Disconnecting Spring Reverb? Bias Mod? Peavey VK100
Yes, just disconnect the RCA cables to disconnect the reverb function.
As for the bias mod, are you planning on running KT66s or 5881s or something? The Peavey is fixed bias, and biased on the warmer side so that you are less likely to blow power tubes and have more even wear on the tubes. Be sure to discharge the capacitors before working on everything, and familiarize yourself without the layout of the wiring diagram before doing something like a mod like that. It would be very easy to adjust the pot too cold and blow tubes/burn out a screen grid resistor, or worse, fry your transformer.
