A New Breed of Bandit
by Wayne Asher from Trinity, TXWhen I first received this amp, I wanted to return it. I was expecting it to sound like the old, 80's Peavey amp sound and this is quite different (I had the old Teal Stripe version years ago). Howeve... read more [+]r, after getting past the learning curve, I discovered the beauty of this amp. It has plenty of power and the transtube sound is far advanced from a 90's Studio 112 I have. Bottom line, this thing sounds great. I have a 335 style Epi Dot, a Tele with rail style mini humbuckers, and an Ibanez SZR 520 and they all sound great on this amp. One caveat; it is a very bright amp, but I can adjust for that with pedals if I need to (depending on the room and stage acoustics). I even put in a scorpion speaker and there's no noticeable difference, which means the stock Blue Marvel speaker is surprisingly full-sounding and comparable to the Scorpions I have used for many years.

To sum it up, this amp sounds great, sounds like a tube amp to all but perhaps the most discriminating expert, but is a lightweight package that doesn't require the maintenance of a tube amp. It has a ton of sonic options and sounds great with a variety of guitars. If the footswitch had indicator LED's, it would be perfect. close [-]

First of all I want to compliment the wonderful service that my Wife and received from Sweetwater on a few other purchases as... read more [+] well. The Staff is pro all the way!
Now about the Bandit:
I have been a fan of Peavey gear for close to 30 years. I'm a lead guitar picker in a classic country/variety band that performs all around Minnesota, Wisconsin and beyond. I am really enjoying the great tone from the Bandit! From the first time that I unpacked the amp and plugged in my Tele (without any additional effects/pedals) the tone was absolutely awesome! I have now used this amp on stage at about a dozen shows and I'm lovin' it more each time! Even my Wife who is the lead singer in our band has commented about the great tone that this amp delivers!
I have experienced nothing but great things from every single Peavey product that I have purchased over the years. I would highly recommend the Peavey Bandit to any player of any playing level, plus you simply cannot go wrong with the price!
One final note...our steel/lead guitar player commented while we were getting ready for a show at the Minnesota State Fair saying "You've got the amp that I want, what great tone"! close [-]
by Frank from Aztec, N.M.Ive had mine for 12 years, it has the best tones for live applications. ive tried other heads n cabs, marshall fender crate line 6 etc.... but nothing has come close

Peavey Bandit 112
by Wiley from West Yellowstone, MT USAI don't have much experience with amps. I still have a lot to learn about setting them up. For what I need, this is the perfect amp. I just use it to jam and practice.

I think it wa... read more [+]s misnamed. True, this amp could steal the show with it's superb, tube like quality output; but, it gives more than it takes!
80 watts is probably a bit too much for the living room jam session. The power level switch is a big plus for this application. Now, I can use the amp in different settings!
I love it! close [-]
