I saw some videos of them, seemed pretty nice for what they are...

but I recommend checking out what shops have used. I just got a great peavy classic 30 for less than a bandit used (paid $350 for it), and its a tube amp.

but if you can't find it, or want something quieter (I can't go up past 2, else I might get evicted) then the bandit is fine too I guess.

unlike what many people say, you can sound good on a SS amp, and if you suck, a great tube amp won't make you better. :P.

haha, I didnt think you did. I was just putting that out there because I honestly don't think solid state is the worst in the world if you can't afford better...

I almost couldn't, and got lucky with a used amp :P.

to be honest, it s a lot easier to crank heavy distortion at low volumes on SS amps, so that might be for you anyway.

Peavey Bandits are good sounding amps with enough distortion to satisfy anyone short of all-out metal players. They also sound great at low volumes. I have a Peavey Backstage Plus I bought new in 1984 and its still kicking. I love tubes, but to me (others may disagree) they are the next best thing.

Okay i think this amp is Great. for what it is it has nice cleans not bright not sparkley but pretty flat in general and it has good bass response. it conforms to a distortion pedal very nicely.

the lead chanel has a nice classic rock sound and the distortion chanell is "good enough" better than most stock distortion ive found, if you have a distion pedal it will sound better ..way better. the lead chanell is nice for hi gain soloing.

the amp is LOUD AS HELL too! it is louder then some of the 2X12 amps ive heard and it doesent break up at hi volume levels.


if you are looking for an affordable all purpose amp that is loud this is the amp for you. NO it is not a halfstack NO it doesent come too close NO it doesent have tubes in it but it is the next best thing. you might want to buy the 212 because it will defenently sound better and last you longer.
