Hey guys so im thinking about getting a peavey ultra 112 soon and i just have a few questions. What types of tones will a be able to get out of this thing considering i cant really try it out before it get it. Will i be able to get that 80s metal crunch like Metallica but still have nice cleans (with pedals of course). I also want to know if i will be able to get that 80s hard rock tone like guns and acdc. Just wondering what you guys think on that one.

Thanks

The crunch channel should be able to get all of those tones. Here's a good clean demo

Oh alright does that really matter getting an older amp? And also i would like to know your guys opinion on the peavey bandit 112 do you guys think that would be a better choice for the music listed above

as long as you get the channel switcher with the amp then you won't really need to use pedals to get the distortion sound. the clean channel is good but not say fender good. the crunch and ultra channels share the same eq but have separate volume and gain. no problem getting an 80s metal sound as that is pretty much what they were designed to do. using an overdrive helps tighten up the sound when needed as well. way better than a bandit no contest. and yes I own an Ultra 212

I own a Ultra plus 4x10 currently being turned
into a head. Ultras will eat a bandit up.

Hm alright well looks like im going with an ultra. And sense you guys have them are they pedal friendly or no?
#9
Yes, they take pedals just fine. First thing to spend money on would be tubes, not pedals. Fill the preamp with JJ's.

+1 just put new jj's in mine. World of difference.
And I run multiple pedals. Handles them all great.

For the preamp Ecc83 or the 5751 for a combo (the gold pin versions IMO are not worth the extra money)
Their 6L6 tubes are fine also you may want to check out their KT66 if you have the room in the amp

I have good luck with

www.eurotubes.com $82.50 for a complete JJ retube for the 60 watt Ultra

http://www.dougstubes.com/ is the way to go, IMO.

I guess you just have to try different stores and see what works for you.
