Bandit-
Pros: Built like a tank, lots of volume, okay tone
Cons: it's a solid state amp and all SS amps suck...just kidding. Really, it isn't quite at par with some other SS amps out there.

VK:
Pros: Good OD, well-built
Cons: Unlike most tube amps, the tone gets worse when you've got it running really loud. I don't like the clean channel, though some might.

By high-gain I don't mean stupid stuff. I just mean styles like Motley Crue or Iron Maiden

Bandit-Volume, sturdy, versatile.
VK-tubes but no tone.

You could get $1000 custom made pickups hand wired with Eric Johnsons pubic hair, and they'd still sound pretty bad through a ****ty solid state practice amp.

No, when I tried the 112 combo at Tom Lees out (sound proof rooms FTW!!), it sounded alot better at higher volumes (i need earplugs O.o).
That doesn't even make sense - "the tone goes down" - wtf?

Seriously, the ValveKing eats the "bandit" for breakfast.

Alright. Granted, in this case, the valveking is probably the better amp. Peavey's transtube series is highly underrated, though. They're good stuff.

Also, the valveking isn't great stock. If you have another $150 to invest in tubes/speakers, then you can have yourself a real nice amp. Otherwise, it's very mediocre.

For practice, I'd rather save some money and take a transtube bandit.
