Peavey Bandit 112's TransTube Does Make a Difference

The Peavey Bandit 112 offers plenty of punch from 80 watts running through a bold 12-inch Blue Marvel speaker, while an external speaker jack lets you connect to a bigger cab if necessary. Two footswitchable channels with independent EQ, TDynamics, presence, and resonance controls, as well as reverb and a footswitchable effects loop provide great utility at any type of gig. Modern or vintage voicing on the clean channel and high-gain, modern, or vintage voicing on the lead channel add huge amounts of instant tonal variation.

Peavey Bandit 112 Features:
  • 80 watts into 8 ohms
  • 12" Blue Marvel speaker
  • High and low gain inputs
  • TransTube tube emulation circuitry
  • Footswitchable clean and lead channels (footswitch not included)
  • 3-band passive EQ on each channel
  • 3-position EQ/gain voicing switch on each channel
  • Reverb with level control
  • Footswitchable boost with level control
  • 1/4" stereo speaker simulated direct out jack with level control

Built like a cinderblock sounds like a twin

Superclean sounds, great distortion via boss blues driver. Loud very loud built like a cinderblock, Best amp under $500 period I have the matching extension cabinet killer . If you add an extension cabinet make sure it's a 8 olm to match amp speaker. Peavey 95 bandit. USA made. Never had any kind of problem lots of use, New ones are made in China still a great amp for $$$$$

the bandit came today and took it out of the box and cranked up with a fender,ibanez,les paul and a martin acoustic electric. it did not sound like the old models, it didn"t sound like the older models . it didn't need to. was very pleased with what i was hearing. it is a keeper!!!!

Bandit 112

Been gigging just about every weekend since 2008 with one of these. No complaints. Picked up another one at a pawnshop for a spare but I've had no problems with the original one I purchased. Gets a great useable guitar sound at pretty much any volume. I like tube amps as much as the next person but they always have a "sweet spot" that's either too loud or lost in the onstage mix. No such issue with this amp. For what its worth my settings are: Lead channel (I don't use the clean channel), classic voicing, gain at 7, mids ALL THE WAY UP, treble at 4, bass somewhere between 7 and all the way up (if I have the amp off the ground, I dime the bass), Reverb at noon AND the Boost is always on and set around noon (with the boost on, you get more of a tube like punch/response) Rear panel: damping set to "tight" and power at 50%. I use a strat with HSS pickup configuration. I can use the guitar volume to clean up with the single coils and let it rip on the humbucker. These are just my settings, may not work for everyone but I'm happy with the consistency. I get to the gig, adjust volume and bass knobs and I'm ready to go. Great classic rock sound!

A New Breed of Bandit

When 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). However, 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.

Peavey Bandit 112

I recently purchased the Peavey Bandit 112 from Sweetwater. First of all I want to compliment the wonderful service that my Wife and received from Sweetwater on a few other purchases as 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"!
