Peavey Bandit 112 Transtube

Rack Mountable:


This is my pretty well as-new Peavey Bandit 112 Transtube. It is one of the last USA built bandits with the metal corners. Power is 80 watts into the 8 ohm internal Sheffield speaker which is very efficient so it goes extremely load. With another 8 ohm speaker plugged in it’s even louder at 100 watts. I compared the Sheffield speaker to my EVM12L and was astonished at its performance; it matches the volume and frequency range of the EVM12L for guitar work. There are 2 inputs (high and low impedance) with channel switching on the front panel or via foot-switch. There’s three band eq on each channel and global presence plus (real spring) reverb which is very nice as reverb on low settings and quite interesting as a sort of modulation/reverb on high settings. There’s a global Transtube pot that adds valve simulation as it is turned. The clean tones are really good for a non-valve amplifier with generous bass and clear treble that is not too piercing. The distortion channel is really good and lives up to the Transtube reputation well. There are buttons for bright and gain/thrash on the distortion channel. The distortion channel can produce that saturated harmonic filled tone that still defies digital reproduction. There’s loads of connectivity with effects loop, pre-out and main in, extension speaker out and foot-switch in (I have the foots witch, also in excellent condition).

Many say this was the best Bandit which is why I hunted one down. I bought it from an older man who bought it as new old stock about 2 years ago and found it to be too loud for his family. I've had it in my home studio and everyone who’s played it is amazed at the range of sounds it can produce. It’s in mint condition and could be taken for new – I've agonised over selling this because it’s the best all-round amp I have. I have many amps and combos, mainly valve and I wanted something for holidays and general use but this Bandit is in such good condition that I can’t use it as my ‘take it anywhere’ combo so I've now got a really compact combo with 10 inch speaker for chucking in the car and playing away from home. As I've also recently acquired a new semi boutique valve amp I simply have to sell something. This is quite a collector’s piece, especially in this condition. Note that despite many references to Transtube, this is not a valve amplifier but it is about as close as you can get in tone.

Due to size and weight it must be collection only from the KT3 area. Cash is preferred but I could also take a PayPal payment if necessary. I will not post or courier this item. A trial before bidding is possible and recommended; please message me if this is of interest. There is no reserve.

Thanks for reading all this, I'll try to check for questions daily and respond as soon 

as possible.
