Peavey: Studio Pro 112
0

Price paid: $ 100

Purchased from: Craigslist

Sound — 9
Clean channel has a button for bright, it sounds good, especially on single coil. Great reverb, crank it all the way up and you get an awesome sound on the clean channel. On the lead channel, you have a gain button, and thrash button. Thrash is more fuzzy, gain has a lot of crunch. Keep both buttons off and you get a lighter gain, press them both you get well, a really muddy sound. I use a cheap strat with a bridge humbucker, clean sounds great on the single coils, lead is awesome with the humbucker.

Overall Impression — 9
Great for metal, even clean. You can't get as warm as a tube like a Fender, but its awesome. I'd buy it again if it was stolen.

Reliability & Durability — 9
Just got it, so I don't know. It was used, and it works. Its built like a tank, no BS on this sucker.

Features — 9
2 Channels, foot switchable if you have it. Its trans tube, no idea what that means, go look it up. High gain input and low gain input, FX send return. Speaker out, as if this wasn't loud enough already.

    thats a load of crap. the Peavey Bandit is agreat little workhorse they sound decent and dont break your pocketbook. I have been playing for 30 plus years and i love the bandits . and for tube amps one of teh best sounding i have ever played was the peavey VTM60.

    For a $100 amp you put all 9's? I guess a half stack would get solid 20's. How do these reviews get on here? Some beginner guitarists likely use reveiws as a reference for what they're looking at buying, so all 9's is misleading, at best.

    peaveys have some of the best tone for amps in their price range. I have a 6505+ half stack, and even though it doesnt sound as good as an orange or a mesa, it still has a good tone, and for the price you can't beat it.

    this amp suuuuucks its at the place my band jam, and when turned up loud with gain more than half way you get reallly bad feedback and it sounds unbelievably muddy. cleans aren't too bad but i've heard better

    The rating is about how the reviewer feels about the product. If he feels that it's a good product then he gives a 9. It depends on if you have some expectations what the product will be like and then you notice that the product is better/worse than you thought. I think that's how people rate the products. (And of course if you have no experience you may think that a crappy amp is great especially if you haven't tried another amps.)

    That's true, but there will be people looking through reveiws on guitar sites just like this, that don't know s**t about guitar amps, and read all 9's, go buy it, then realize a month later that they could have more amp for their money. Reviews are supposed to HELP people who don't know much about a product decide if the product is what they need. This amp is not deserving of the rating it got, and if nobody calls bulls**t, someone looking to this review as a reference may buy an amp they hate.

    giving it all 9's is all according to its price. for $100, it might sound awesome. There needs to be a different category for the value, like how good it is compared to other products in that price range.

    Guys, why won't one of you just grab this amp in shop or whatever, test it, and give it appriopriate marks? It would be much easier than to argue if the OP review sucks or not...

    Sorry fot the crap review guys, it not as good as I stated, I've had more experience now and see there are much better amps. I still like it, but its definitely not a 9.
