Question about Peavey Audio Players & Recorders

My amp won't play distortion.

I have a Peavey Transtube Series Bandit 112 amp for my electric guitar and I had it adjusted to play distortion until my 3 yr old son messed with all the knobs, now it won't play the way it did. I can't get it to distort at all and can't get it adjusted right. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Hello all you have to do is turn your master volume down to just barley on then turn your pre amp volume somwhere about 2:oclock depending on how much distortion you want ajust your volume on your guitar a little past halfway to give yourself some headroom in case you need to turn up some while you are playing! just think of it as your guitar is your first pre-amp then your amp is second preamp in line ,that is your over drive ,then the master volume is how loud you want the overall volume i hope this help's ya!

Can you repair a tear in a peavey guitar amp and will it affect the sound


I have to assume you're really meaning a tear in the speaker cone. If so, yes you can repair it if it's small and yes, it will affect the sound. Peavey Bandit amps have come with a few different speakers over the life of the name, but all will still be available either online or directly from Peavey's parts department. Here's the link-

I NEED TO REPALCE THE TRANSFORMER FRO MY BANDIT 112.


It is unlikely the transformer is bad, Some of these have a thermal fuse in the windings. Usually failed components overload the power supply and blow the main fuse.

I'm trying to get a crunchy metal sound from my peavey 112 bandit. What should I set my controls to?


Overdrive is the key to the crunchy metal sound. The only effect on that amp is reverb.
You may want to consider getting an overdrive pedal to get the sound you want.

Distortion on the lead channel is not working


The intergrated circuit is most likely gone out. Not much you can do, cost in repair is more than the amp. Check out the peavey vypyr, it's a great modeling amp for about $100.

I have a peavey bandit 112 transtube guitar amplifier. Ive had it for nearly 15 years, but over the last few its become quite noisy when turned on even if nothing is plugged into the input. This is on both...


This has several vacuum tubes and those are suspect. Take a pencil and tap the glass of the smaller tubes to look for noise changes. You may have to take off the tube metal shield to do this.
If you have got 15 years of life from the tubes that is great. Also suspect are electrolytic filter caps.
If you are not electronically adept, take it in for repair.
