I was looking around my local pawn shop the other day and found a used Peavey Bandit 112 for around $100, and I reckon it's a good deal.(I've yet to try it out though)

It's one of the older models, so I was just wondering if anybody here had some experience with it.How much of a difference is there between it and the newer ones? I've looked around for some sound clips/reviews, and I'm impressed by what I've seen so far. Just looking for some opinions on it.

If it works, for $100 I would buy it.

I bought one in 2003 and had it for 4 or 5 years.

Its a good practice amp good for jamming with a band etc, even some smaller gigs But be warned once you crank it loud, it does sound pretty bad.

But for $100 I would take it as long as nothings broken.

Did you turn the T-Dynamics up? Mine sounds a little bit harsh but it's bearable cranked, better than any other SS I've heard anyway.

Thanks guys, I'll be sure to check if the thing works

I don't really care how loud the thing gets, as long as the thing can be heard over drums. If the need ever arises, I'll hook it up to a P.A. system or something to that extent. I'm really just looking for good tone.

Well this thing is loud enough to cover drums. It keeps up with my lead guitarists 200W Randall with ease. So yeah don't worry about how loud it gets especially if they use PA systems at the places your gigging.

Thats funny this thread came up, I was just going thru my garage and found my old bandit 112 with sheffield speakers. Well its going to be my main practice amp for now, I dont know why I ever put it away.

I had mine for ages, and it served me very well. Definitely one of the best SS combos on the market, I would definitely snatch it up. The distortion channel is great, and the clean channel is pretty fair too.
