so the peavey transtube bandit 112 is NOT a tube amplifier or give some info of what it sounds like if you could. also is it a hybrid or full solid?
#2
It's all solid state. "transtube" is a gimmicky word peavy came up with to sell more units.

That's the kind of amp I have and I like it. It sounds decent, and it's reasonably priced.
#6
what do you guys think about the line 6 spider valve 40 watt combo amp? its all tube very resonable price that i could afford
#7
Don't know about the Line 6 but the peavey's not bad. I got an older model on craigslist for $120. For that money it's a good deal. In my opinion it does alot but nothiing exeptionally well. For how much they cost it's a decent amp.

I've heard many bad things about Line 6 amps, and I tried one out before I bought my Bandit 112. The Peavey is a better product in my opinion. Cleans are alright, but it sounds great dirty.
#11
i want honest answer, dont just repeat what other people say and agree with them, even tho you havent even played a line 6.
#12
the Line 6 spider valve is not all tube, it just uses a tube power amp designed by Bogner. It's definitely not as bad as the regular spiders and i would buy it over the bandit.

TS, how much money do you have to work with? what the biggest city closest to you? are you willing to buy used gear?

Im looking fro a nice tube amp thats 600 bucks or below, one that can play nice 80's metallica and megadeth those nice metal hardrock tones. but i want to know of other brands besides th e typical marshall, peavey, vox etc... ive already checked out a few any suggestions?
#17
The Spider Valve is by no means a regular Spider. It's actually really great.

But, unless you're looking for tones of versatility, I'd skip it and look for a nice used all tube amp for those thrash tones.

Again, what's your nearest big city?
