I have an opportunity to bag one of these old beasts (also called the Teal Stripe series) after looking for a while, as I'm into the late 80's / early 90's solid state old school death metal sound, for which I'll be using pedals (Boss HM-2 / HM-3 / MT-2) with the amp.

The amp is in another state, and in order to get a courier to pick it up, I need the dimensions (weight / height / length / width )

I searched this info online, but cannot find it for that model of amp, including the online version of the original manual (link below for reference: https://peavey.com/manuals/80301112.pdf

Does anyone here own one of these series of Bandit, or know anywhere else I can find this info? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

No idea on the dimensions but for what it's worth - that amp kicks fucking ass and you chose wisely. :metal:

I make mine 21.4kg in weight (tried for pounds on the luggage scale, but the readout fluctuated too wildly, sorry), 22 inches wide, 11.5 inches in depth at the slightly wider base, and 19 inches in height allowing for the handle.

And for reference, 21.4kg is 47.18 pounds.

Thanks man, the weight in kg was actually what I needed as I'm in Oz.:yesway: :metal:
Ah, gotcha. Since he gave the dimensions in inches and not in centimeters and tried pounds before kilograms, I assumed you were in the US. Oh well. :lol: All's well that ends well and all. Hope the amp kicks ass. :metal:

It's dafter than that: I gave the dimensions in inches because the amp is US made, with the enclosure clearly in those units, and I thought having the weight next to that in metric was really silly! :)

UPDATE - After starting this thread a little while back, I am updating it with a new technical enquiry re: the same Teal Stripe Peavey Bandit amp (Note - I intended to update the thread title but could find no way to do that)

It has been a bumpy ride since the amp arrived sadly. Right off, there were problems with loud crackling / popping noises at times, and sometimes the sound was also cutting out.

I took the amp to a local authorised Peavey service agent I know, who did some repairs (resolder PCB and replaced faulty capacitor). I got a partial refund from the pawnbroker store who sold the amp to me.

The problem that remains is that my Bandit's Overdrive (Lead) channel puts out nowhere near as much distortion as it should, I gotta use a boost pedal, otherwise it sounds more like a Fender.

Other owners of Teal stripe Bandits suggested it may be a faulty gain pot, but all the pots were cleaned when the amp was serviced. The amp is back at the repair shop, but any thoughts on what the problem may be would be of help.

Following my previous post, here is a photo of the actual amp. Note that this Bandit has the flat silver panels on the sides, which is a less common version than the common Teal Stripe Bandit with the double column silver panels, which has me thinking that my Bandit is an early version of the Teal Stripe series.
