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 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.
