L'avis de King Loudness (contenu en anglais)"Great jamming amp"
Getting a good sound out of this amp is pretty easy. Peavey gear has a fairly intuitive interface that is able to be dialed in for a whole host of sounds by any player. The channels are laid out in typical fashion with gain, volume and EQ controls. As well, there are voicing switches on the front panel that alter the tonal structure of the amp by giving it a more vintage or more modern voice. The transtube technology is really something cool... It does indeed make the amp sound, and FEEL more like a higher powered tube rig with more sponginess and compression to bring out natural overtones in the sound. Awesome.
The Bandit 112 is one of those amps that sounds excellent with a whole variety of guitars and tonal styles. The clean channel is very nice and pristine. It's a bit flat sounding at times and lacks a bit of the sparkle I like in a clean tone but for a solid state tone it's pretty good for sure. I like it as well when hit with more gain or a boost pedal for a gutsy and crisp blues tone. The drive tones are great too. Whether you're doing classic arena rock or modern thrash metal, this amp has a very clear and defined tone that at times really does sound like a decent tube rig. The voicing switches really come in handy here to alter the tone to different levels and types of gain structure. Props to Peavey, this is an admirable sounding rig for sure.
All in all I think the Peavey Bandit 112 is a fantastic solid state jamming amp with a great layout, cool looks and some very tubelike tones within. The parts used could be better but for an amp of this price it can be overlooked. At about $350 new these amps are a great buy for anyone who needs a high wattage combo for jamming or gig situations that sounds like the tube amps costing a lot more!

This is the updated model and not much has changed in the way of tone. Any guitar sounds great with this amp. I like a nice Gibson Les Paul or another guitar with a humbucker pickup in it. Peavey amps I feel take humbuckers really well and smooths out some of that harsh high end that is naturally attributed to their tone. It sounds great with a Fender Stratocaster as well. You can definitely tell in the sound and tone that this amp is still a solid state amp. You just can't emulate a tube tone and have the same feel and punch that a real tube does naturally. However, this amp does take digital processing a step further in the right direction.
At new these amps come in at around $330, which is a great price for this amp. I would recommend this amp to anyone who needs a good amp for practice or jamming use. These particular model has been upgraded so you would have to score one of these on the used market.

L'avis de iamqman (contenu en anglais)"Much better than the last"
This amp is called the transtube technology amp which basically means that it is still a solid state amp design but with an emulated tube tone. So basically what you get is an amp that is cheaper to produce and sell and still be able to sound a little bit better than a regular solid state amp. I have to say that it sound sound much fuller than a standard solid state amp.

I personally like the sound of the Blue Marvel speaker compared to the Sheffield. The Sheffield doesn't compliment the tone of the amp as well as the Blue Marvel. I am glad they made the switch in the newest edition of this amp.
I would recommend this amp to anyone who needs a good amp for practice or jamming use. At new you can find these amps for right around $330, which isn't bad for decent sounding two channel amplifier.
