Well I went into the music store today and tried a peavy bandit 112. And the distortion was killer. The clean was ok. I just wanted to know what are your thoughts on this amp

I used to have a Bandit 112 and I absolutely loved it. Mind you,it was before the Transtube models.I haven't had much experience with those so I can't offer any solid advice other than to get one of the older ones. The distortion was awesome but the clean channel left alot to be desired. To me it was a great amp but everyone has their own preferences.

Provided its the transtube series, i say stick with it. The distortion is pretty good, although its hard to tweak it to get it perfect - well for me anyways. But i don't see the problem with it. Better than a MG at least..

How much?

If you like it, buy it!

I've got one and I can't fault it for the price. The next time I'm in the market for an amp etc I'd look at a peavy first just on the strength of the bandit.....
#15
Well, I tried it out, and I quite liked it. I also heard a lot of good things about it, considering it's solid state...
If you like it, go for it.

I played a Bandit Transtube for about 6 years. Despite having traded it in towards a 5150, and subsequently bought my El Diablo, I still miss that amp. 2 years after getting rid of it, I will still say that it's easily one of, if not THE best solid state combo I've ever had the pleasure of plugging into.

In terms of TRUE features (not talking about substandard digital effects, multi-amp modelling, etc..), it's about as versatile and 'pro' as you can possibly get with even comparable SS / hybrid amps costing twice as much. This amp has everything a home, studio, or gigging musician could possibly need. It has enough different voicings (2 clean, 3 distorted) to suit any style of music, and enough inputs, outputs, loops, etc to fill any need.

The only down side is that the clean channel is a little bland. It's not bad, and it doesn't distort or anything like that, but doesn't seem as 'lively' as other amps. Although that's a shortcoming that's easily remedied with a chorus pedal either in front of the amp or in the loop.

Thanks for the input. But this thing is solid state? I thought it was one of those hybrids. Cuz it does have the "T" Dynamics that really helps the sound.

100% solid state. The T-Dynamics is a control that's meant to emulate the effect of tube dynamics. Essentially, turning up this setting at lower volumes give more simulated 'power amp growl' to the tone. In my experience, it was best to start with the amp at a low volume (post at about 1) and the T-Dynamics at about 70%. As you increase the amp volume, you decrease the T-Dynamics proportionally to the increase in volume to maintain the same tone at higher levels.

I've heard quite a few stories of them breaking down. As far as sound goes though, they sound pretty good for a SS amp. Can't go wrong for the price...unless of course it farts out on you.

In my experience with Peavey - and I (ab)used Peavey for many years - they're built like tanks and will take incredible amounts of punishment and still operate flawlessly.
