Would a ibanez s520ex sound good on a peavey bandit 112, even though the bandit is SS and the guitar got active pups?
s520ex has passive pickups when stock.
The pups look like actives because of their covers, but they're in fact passive. They are pretty decent, I'd like to add.
so to answer the question, sure, itd sound ok but theres no reason not to get a tube combo amp.
