Just pulled the trigger for a used "Cyclops" Bandit 112 for peanuts - A Guitar Center in Omaha, Nebraska, listed it $130 - $165 total after shipping and taxes! I know the MIC's aren't as well-loved as the MIA's, especially since Peavey as a company used to really push for "made-in-USA" before going back on their own values. But the new Chinese amps do have a few features worth noting - particularly the "Warm" clean channel voice, the speaker-cab emulated out, and (most importantly) a footswitchable 10db clean power boost - a Godsend for live applications. Doesn't hurt that I prefer the utilitarian look of these and the "silver stripes" to the plasticky looks of the "red stripes." Oh, and this will be the first Peavey Bandit I will have ever played (... yes, really). Of course, for that little dough, I plan on getting an inexpensive multi-effects pedal to throw in the loop for chorus, tremolo, and delay duties. More importantly, though, when I finally sell my Fender Mustang IV, I'm definitely going to look at swapping speakers. Less expensive options include the Eminence Legend or Texas Heat or the Celestion Seventy 80. I'm also halfway considering leaving the stock one in and trying my hand at building my own cab with a 15" Celestion Fullback. I can only imagine the meatiness of that classic Peavey crunch through a massive speaker... Any thoughts on what might be best?
