The Bandit 112 amplifier is a member of Peavey's TransTube Series. A solid-state amp designed specifically to emulate the tones of tube amps, the Bandit 112 offers beginners and professionals the chance to experiment with a much broader range of sound than standard amplifiers. Understanding the amplifier specifications is a good place to begin learning about whether this model is for you.
The Bandit 112 offers those about to rock 80 watts of power driven through one 12-inch Blue Marvel speaker. Sound can be manipulated in numerous ways thanks to clean and lead channels, the latter of which provides ample distortion. Both channels offer passive equalisation on three bands and equalisation/gain voicing switches with three positions from which to choose. Channels can be accessed by an optional foot switch. A master switch on the panel provides a reverb and boost option while inputs include both a high and low gain 1/4-inch jack.
A greater range of sound reinforcement is available because of the addition of two switches on the front panel. The first switch is on the clean channel section and gives musicians the option of either a classic position for contemporary sound, a vintage position that emulates the sound of older amps and a warm switch for darker tones.
The second switch is found on the lead channel and gives musicians the chance to experiment with a modern position for gritty rock tones, a classic position for tube amp sounds with an emphasis on overdrive as well as a high gain position for those who use lower pre-gain settings but require a tighter response.
Rear Panel Specs
Rear panel specifications include an AC power inlet, the power switch, a 1/4-inch jack for headphones, an external speaker jack, effects loops jack and a remote switch jack. A special feature located on the rear of this amp is a three-position power level switch with 25, 50 and 100 per cent power level options. This feature is essentially a simulator of tube power amplifiers and gives musicians the opportunity to adjust their amp according to the size of a room.
Weight and Dimensions
Like many amplifiers, the Peavey Bandit 112 is constructed with quality sound in mind, not the convenience of easy portability. Weighing a stout 18.1kg., the Bandit might require the use of a dolly to move to the van. Unpacked dimensions are listed at a height of 21.38 inches, width of 23 inches and depth of 11.19 inches.
