    So here's what I found this amp to sound like I wanted ... very simple:
    an old 31 band eq (purchased € 30 on ebay!) in the effects loop!

    Since that, I get all that sings to me.
    Attenuation too shrill treble, bass highlighting originally surphasées.
    I will now retrieve me a good little analog compressor
    might as well get a sound very balanced and personalized

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    For 1 years.
    I love the surprises that reserves this device when combined with 2/3 adequate effects.
    A lot of amps
    This one has a character of its own.
    I love and do not want to part with it.
    Yes, it's a good value T

    SONORITS

    The sound is very good as is (a heat lamps!) But actually in lead ... in a metal register / extreme, has a little drool in the bass.
    So I connect a mono equalizer 31 bands in the effects loop and ... DEADLY !!!
    By transferring / mitigating certain frequencies in the low, we get something frankly excellent!
    We must also think to buy a compression pedal .... but good, is obvious.
    I prefer the sounds: once galis all! This is awesome.
    This amp does not blow !!

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I use it for 2 months
    with external equalizer, is happiness. My problem is transportation (22kg amp + guitar + eq + + effects pedals ...)
    It is for this reason that I spare myself. I resell for a simple emulator crankset.
    I tried more expensive 3X lamps amps, 30X more breath, 300X more fragile for a questionable sound.
    EXCELLENT quality price ratio
    Yes, I repeat that choice but then delivered bundled with Fenwick!

    Have been playing in bands since the early 70's back when tubes were the standard. This amp is built like a tank and still sounds like tubes without the fragile involved. Reminds me of the Duce and Mace sound that so many of us wanted on stage.

    Unit was used and purchased for $150 on an online auction. Got this amp to replace an older Roland cube 100.

    T-O-N-E - The warmth of a tube in solid state unit. The footswitch works well and the "dirty" channel has different settings on top of the normal post/pre options on most amps

    Heavy beyond a doubt as it is a high watt amp, but I guess that's why bands have roadies - lol. Could of used some sliding feet on the sides like some other......

    Built like a tank and it is made for roadwork. Careful on the knobs when moving though. The repair involved makes you want to cry just to change a knob. Manfacturing is not always user friendly afterwards.

    As usual, Peavey guitar amps give some of the best sound for the buck!

    I bought this amp with my godin guitar and got a sweet deal on it (somthing like $400 CAN before taxes). I bought it from Murch Music in Ontarion, Canada after having it reocomended to me from a friend. 80/100 watt.

    This is an amzing amp, sounds great with tons of different guitars and any style of music, has lots of different sounds and settings to play with and amazing distortion.

    Nothing really, abit heavy and bulky, could use a head phone jack...but who needs that when you can just piss of the neighbors with the amzing volume this amp puts out for a 80 watt.

    Only had it for 4 months...no problems seems well built and everything seems in a good place. The pedal has a cheap feal......

    Amazing amp for the money and size. Good for anything and everything. I have no doubt that this amp could blow away any other amp in its price range and size with its superior sound quality and settings. Now go out and buy one so you can go show it off.

    i do not have this amp yet but i will be getting it soon. i will be getting it from my local music store called mac's music store. it is a very good priced amp at only £200 second hand.

    it is a very good quality amp and the sheffield speaker gives out good overdriven sound and a nice clean sound. the reverb is very good for lots of differnt styles. you could use this amp for probably any stule of music from blues to rock and to metal i think that the best feature of this amp is the thrash distortion setting.

    very well built good strong design.

    so all i can say is that it is a bloody good amp.

    Bought this amp new in Australia for A$799.

    I wanted a tube sounding solid state amp which didn't cost a fortune. It has a good range of sounds and the clean channel is really Vox/Fenderish (I know for a fact, as I have an old AC30 on loan which I have to return) Goodby tubes (unless someone gives me a lot of cash, and I would still keep the Peavey)

    A pity its made in China, but most electronic components come out of there anyway, regardless of what amp you buy. Stil, thats why the price is so great. The speaker has no label on it and I think it might be a weak point (I fitted an old JBL 2130 and it sounds brilliant).

    Channel switching on footswitch is obvious and should be audibly smoother.

    Pretty well-built. It is not a lightweight, and should hold up to abuse like any Peavey I have had.

    Bang for buck -can't beat it..not perfect but better and more versatile tube sound and EQ- than my Tech 21 Trademark 60 -which is also a top quality amp. Clean channel close to a vintage Vox.
    I would suggest fitting a Celestion or JBL speaker to this amp to make it sound as good as just about anything going around. After 30 years of gigging, I am ready to embrace new technology and I think the tube argument is really up in the clouds..If you think its not as warm as tubes, then have a couple of more beers and try again.

    After comparing all the specs I could find on the web, and hearing all the different amps I could, I decided to purchase the Peavey Bandit 112 from The Whitehouse of Music in West Bend, WI because it was hands-down the best amp of the type I was looking for. I paid $350.00 for it. What a bargain !!

    This little amp does it all. It has two channels (footswitchable) that have low, mid, and high EQ adjustment (don't find that on many amps) but it also has a "modern" and "vintage" setting that adjusts the overall voicing of the clean channel. This is very nice. The lead channel has the same feature but also adds a high gain voicing. You can push this channel WAY over the top. Whatever crunch......

This is very nice. The lead channel has the same feature but also adds a high gain voicing. You can push this channel WAY over the top. Whatever crunch you want, this amp's got it!! The last thing I like is the T Dynamics setting on the power amp. It is described as a power level control (I thought is was like master volume) but it is really a compressor. You can dial-in just the right amount of compression you need.

    Stand-alone, the amp is very quiet. When I connect my Peavey UltraVerb II, DigiTech GNX1, or t.c. electronic M-ONE XL to the effects loop there is a noticable rise in the power amp noise, BUT, having the effects inserted this way keeps that noise level constant, cranking-up the input volume doesn't mean even more noise from the effects.
    All-in-all, I have no dislikes. I'm very pleased with this amp!

    It's light in weight and seems to be built well. I haven't dropped it down the basement stairs (yet) but I expect it would live to play another day.

    The bottom line is if you're looking for a nice little combo amp both for playing at home and out gigging, don't look any further. This is your amp !! Just buy one, you won't be disappointed.

    I bought this amp at daddy's junky music. I paid $350.00 for it. It's a great amp. You can get all kinds of sounds from country/blues-rock/metal.

    Looks and features are great. Loud and from what the sales people told me it's the absolute best in the price range.

    Nothing

    Well built

    I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good amp to practice on in private or for band practice

    I acquired this Guitar Amplifier from Steve's Music, in downtown Ottawa. The unit was a rather cheap price for 800$ for 300 watts, I tested it in the store and I found it to my liking.

    I liked this unit because the channel switching was very convenient and the different tones of distortion and clean channels was also useful. I also liked the Bandit 112 because it had a very clean sound and gave a lot of variety for different tastes in guitar playing.

    Although this amplifier was great and there wasn't much I didn't like, there was a slight ringing sound after i played with it for awhile, the ringing sound went away after but I found that if you played it for too long it get's testy and......

    Although this amplifier was great and there wasn't much I didn't like, there was a slight ringing sound after i played with it for awhile, the ringing sound went away after but I found that if you played it for too long it get's testy and starts making strange noises. Don't let the ringing sound keep you from purchasing the unit, other than that ringing sound it was a superb sounding item, and nothing's perfect anyways.

    The construction and quality of this unit were very satisfactory, the stubby squared figure with the hard plastic corners gave it a very durable surface, the leather exterior of it was also a great addition to this amazing piece of work.

    In closing I thought that the Bandit 112 is a great amplifie for any performing guitarists of a small crowd. I would highly recommend this unit over any of the other Bandit models, made by Peavey.

    I bought this thang at Bailey Brothers Music in B'ham for 399 i believe. THey threw in a strap and 20 foot chord, so if you figure that in, i paid about 365 for it.


    This amp really has some punch. It sounds great, and has namy quickly switched built in effects. I am starting to think tha ti dont need after markey pedals for distortion and such.


    Hrmm, so far i like it. There is nothing to complain about.

    This amp is LOUD and sounds good when LOUD. Lots of knobs to have fun with and find your sound. Once again Good clean LOUD amp.
