I Love the Peavy Bandit It's a beautiful amp to start, loud enough to cut even with a very powerful drummer

I used to play on a Peavy Bandit and I didn't like it. Very cold clean sound. That's why I wanted to buy a tube amp. But it was loud, for sure smile.gif But as loud as a 15W tube amp.

I'm Sure you didn't played it long enough to dig in an find a good setting, Is the most versatile non tube/transtube amp I've ever heard, the vintage setting was very warm and fat ideal for soloing...right now I don't remember I Liked the clean channel, anyway it's a matter of taste

I have a Peavey Bandit 112 w/ Transitube Technology.

It's garbage. Straight up trash. I can't get any sounds I like out of it and it sounds like there's a sock or something over the speaker. The overdriven stuff sounds sterile and muffled, the clean stuff is very "cold" that's a good word for it.

For clarification, mine looks like this:



and it's a decent practice amp, I guess, but the tone lacks horribly next to it's tube brethren. I paid 300$ for it in '97. I'm hoping your bandit is a different make, because I can't imagine anything pleasing coming through that speaker.

I've tried the newer model, it had some nice vintage sounding emulations drive, but clean is too dark and muddy. Don't like it.

It's not the one in the picture, as I said there are 3 different version
The first is the one I've tried, the latter is the original...it's better, a really beautiful sounding amp

Since you're in Europe you owe it to yourself to look at the Laney VC30, 30 watts class A all tube, more than enough to cut through in your genre. Great amp and great value over there. You might also want a digitech bad monkey overdrive to push some more gain, very nice OD for a very nice price.

If the VC30 is over budget then don't be afraid to go used, ebay ftw. Or just save up. Anyways go ahead and try it at a store.

Thanks JVM - i don't use that channel for ages - unacceptable hum is one of the reasons yes. Do you notice any difference in your tone from using the NS-2? I have been considering getting one.
Currently I use pedals or Boss GT-8 patches for my drive tones.
Thanks very much for the input biggrin.gif


There might be a slight difference but if there is I can't detect it. It sounds really great IMO. You will still get a small amount of hum when you really crank it, but it's definitely reasonable. I say go for it tongue.gif

One thing I have to agree on is, buy now thinking of the future. I don't know how hard it is to unload amps where you live but here where I live I have had so many little amp's over the years and couldn't sell them. There are so many used amps on the market nobody wants them anymore, especially with the influx of line 6 and new fenders that can be had with effects onboard. Trade in's are almost exstinct because they know they will not sell over new amps at lower prices. Go with your ears and some common sense and you'll be fine. Only you know what is really loud enough for what you are doing venue wise and only you know what sound your after. Good luck


Edit-personally the Line 6 tube amp's by bogner are sick, 40 watt model is deafening and can be played for practice also
