A transistor amplifier with a simulated pre-amplification and amplification tube.

Headphone output.
Boost and change the channel controlled by pedals.

Selector tonalitéVintage / Classic / Warm canal Clair.
Dial tone Classic / Modern / High Gain on the Lead channel.
Clean: Volume, Low, Mid, High;
Lead: Pre Gain, Low, Mid, High, Post gain;
Reverb
Boost
In short, very complete!

UTILIZATION

- The configuration is it simple?
Easy and very effective!

- Gets it easy to sound good?
One branch, and it sounds live!

Very important: I was looking for an amp compact enough, not super heavy and fairly balance the gain and volume for group play. Well, I'm thrilled!

SOUNDS

- Will it fit your style of music?
Yes, especially since it is quite versatile!

- With what (s) guitar (s) / low (s) or effect (s) do you play?
PRS Se and SG Faded. Not necessarily have to put a noise gate ... The effects go pretty well otherwise.

- What kind of sound you get and with what settings ("crystalline", "bold ",....)?
So my opinion will be on a test done with a flat EQ:
Clean channel first:
* Vintage: we get a sound enough lens, which is sharp enough thought has barely an "acoustic simulator" Perfect for funk, ska.
* Classic: a well loaded with fat, round bass without abusing either! always very clean with a real heat, which fully respect the grain of the guitar ...
* Warm: the same but with a little more gain and bass, great for jazz.
Lead channel:
* Classic sounds very marshall plexi with a gain limited to play the rhythmic many rock 'n' roll! AC / DC powaaa!
* Modern: Sounds very high gain, I would say mesa correct! and therefore gain a crazy and perfect for metal!
* High gain: the classic but with a channel gain much more unusual and much larger! (Marshall, therefore, if this coup jcm).
These three selections are all very successful and the simulation lamp and rather convincing.

The reverb is normal ... What a reverb! I have not tested the boost and direct out for recording.

OVERALL OPINION

- How long have you use it?
I just buy it!

- What is so special that you like most and least?
+: Power, weight (10kg) and size, sonnorité, versatility, and it looks pretty solid.
-: No master, no effects loop, no speaker output ... For my part, I do not need! and then the bandit 112 has it all!

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
Oulala! I have owned:
randall rg50tc: distortion of ouff! breath too much, too heavy, too big and not super clean;
Tiny terror: very good but not 2em clean channel.
I tested:
Vox valtronix: not bad but not quite "pure" for my taste!
Line 6 Spider Valve: all quite light, but it's too good line 6 Down Pillow and too gadget!
Super Champ XD: not bad but not for the distortion!
Peavey Classic 30: Well ... even great but not enough to gain and too clean lens
Marshall jcm 401: heavy and not much spitting over heads!
roland cube 60: simulation too synthetic (I'm last?)
fender frontman 212: fun but it's not that I seek.

- How would you rate the quality / price?
To the extent that the simulation of lights is great, the settings are effective, it can be used in concert or repeated ... it costs only € 190 + € 20 for the footswitch and paid over € 600 for an amp, and yes the value for money is simply HUGE!

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...
With experience, I would do so, pending a mesa at 3000 €: p
