Can anyone be patient and enlighten me on all those 90's Peavey Combos?
I keep seeing on my local "Craig List" Bandits with various color stripes (Red, Green, Grey) which I cant find info on whats different about them, also Envoys and Backstage models.
I miss having an Amp even though i'll probably only turn it on 1 day a week(if so), so I'm looking for something really cheap and these models keep appearing in all its different variations and 40-60-80 and even 120W versions... but they range from 40 to 100 euros (basically 50-120 dollars). Im getting really tempted but are all they very similar or not? I cant find that info online and unfortunately all the videos I keep getting are made when people still though that recording with a Webcam in 2004 was the way to go to "show sound"
Im not expecting deep and heavy Gain and I was also thinking in feeding them with VST's, basically using it as a big monitor
Like i said it will be something I will use very sparely and I'm not counting on high volumes, just want to have something other than Headphones and Hifi Monitor speakers to play from time to time.
Any info is appreciated.
You can get some pretty good tones from the red stripe bandits. Picture attached for ID purposes as I believe there was an 80s red stripe too which sounded crap.
It can cover a heck of a lot of ground and you can get them pretty cheap ~£50-80 here in the UK.
The envoy and backstage with the same aesthetic are pretty similar sounding amps but with crappier speakers and lower wattage obviously.
My old lead player had a bandit that could hang with a boosted JCM800 with ease.
Here are some better recorded clips than those you will find on youtube.
