heads on fire's review"It works for budgets and kids."

Peavey Bandit 112 (Sheffield Speaker)
80 watts (rms) into 8 ohms
100 watts (rms) into 4 ohms (with external speaker)
12" Sheffield speaker
Both High and Low gain inputs
2 channels
3 band passive EQ on both channels
Footswitchable boost with level control


This is a decent amp on a budget. It's loud enough to be heard in most band settings, and sounds ok. It is easy to dial in a working tone, and being a Peavey, it doesn't take a rocket surgery degree to make that happen. Peavey is known for making durable, affordable, and easy to use products, and this doesn't fail in those regards.


The sounds one can dial into this amp are decent. I sure was inspired as a kid, but I've owned and played much better, so now this amp is just alright to me. It's enough to be amplified in the same room as other instruments playing, and it has the ability to tailor one's sound with EQ, gain, and reverb, so it works in that regard. The best part about the sound of this amp is definitely the quality of the speaker - cleans are actually not bad. The dirty channel could use some work - more picky players will probably want to use an external dirt box.


The rating I'll give this is average. I've played enough amps now to know that there are way better products out there, but there are also way worse. One couldn't go wrong buying one of these for under $200, as long as one isn't the most discriminating tone ranger around. It doesn't sound amazing, but it is a workhorse, so it is a great product for anyone on a tight budget, or for a kid just starting to be in a band. The amp does the job, and is very durable, so it gets a 5 overall from me.

iamqman's review"Got the Sheffs"

Peavey Bandit 112 (Sheffield Speaker)
Peavey what a great company. They still continue to put out impressive products as competitive prices. This is another amp that caters to the masses with its low price and functinalty.

This amp is the basically with the Sheffield speakers. I believe some of them came with Blue Marvel speakers and this one simply came with the Sheffs. These are a British based voicing speakers which sounds more like a Celestion. A very popular speaker for many people.

This amp is called the transtube technology amp which basically means that it is still a solid state amp design but with an emulated tube tone. So basically what you get is an amp that is cheaper to produce and sell and still be able to sound a little bit better than a regular solid state amp. I have to say that it sound sound much fuller than a standard solid state amp.


Peavey Bandit 112 Features:
80 watts (rms) into 8 ohms
100 watts (rms) into 4 ohms (w/external speaker)
12" Sheffield 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


The tone will sound a tad more towards the British side since it has these Sheffield speakers installed.You can definitely tell in the sound and tone that this amp is still a solid state amp. You just can't emulate a tube tone and have the same feel and punch that a real tube does naturally.

However, this amp does take digital processing a step further in the right direction.
Any guitar sounds great with this amp. I like a nice Gibson Les Paul or another guitar with a humbucker pickup in it. Peavey amps I feel take humbuckers really well and smooths out some of that harsh high end that is naturally attributed to their tone. It sounds great with a Fender Stratocaster as well.


I would recommend this amp to anyone who needs a good amp for practice or jamming use. These particular model has been upgraded so you would have to score one of these on the used market. You can probably find one for just a little over $100 used. They do have a newer model which runs around the price of $370. Still not a bad price for a decent practice amp with some good tone.

Peavey Bandit 112 (Sheffield Speaker)
Peavey Bandit 112 amp transistors 80 watts made in USA.
HP Sheffield 12.
2 channels: clean / saturated with individual EQing.
Spring reverb / effects loop.
Transtube simulation.


Although comprehensive and super reliable, the clean channel possde a switch "bright" for a more slamming. The saturated channel possde supplmentaires the first two switches called "trash" for a more comprss and the second "gain" that brings more power.

Effects loop with switch for volume change.
Simulation Transtube 2 knobs: presence / pipes dynamic.


This amp possde clear sound rather nice the problem is that the equal is not really trsractive.
The channel is saturated East "metal" with a fairly flat and distortion comprss.
Not really my type, the potential crunch by measuring the pre-gain is not dgueu.

The reverb is cool and allows be dose gradually, which is not always the case according to the amps, so the good point above.
The lamp simulation bofbof ... a blast!


Together rather OGLA, perfect for budding musicos will play hard with his mates without breaking the bank.
The amp is solid and reliable, I gard more than 10 years without PPIN, just a little bomb contact for maintenance.
