Question about Music
I have a Peavey Bandit 112 amp and the switch between the clean and lead channels does not seem to do anything. It always sounds like it is on the clean channel whether it is set on clean or lead. Any ideas on what might be wrong?
Have you tried using a foot pedal? Are you sure it is switching (green light turns red, etc?). On the lead channel are you turning up the gain all the way and the volume down?

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.

Take it for repair immediately as there is something that is thermally sensitive and it may cause worse damage with continued use. The problem is LIKELY a broken solder joint. Depending on where it is, it could cause damage to the power amp portion. It OFTEN is at one of the leads to a volume control and those USUALLY don't cause damage, but one can't be sure till it is repaired. These broken joints oxidize and then eventually warm and punch through and the device starts working. You MIGHT want to try wiggling the controls to see if one brings the unit on immediately showing itself as the culprit.

SOURCE: hi ive just bought a peavey bandit 112 solo series s/n 9A03997859 but im new to these amps im trying to get a nice rock sound but it keeps making a funny not very nice sound every now and then wat cou
Here is a link to the manual for this unit, it shows a few settings and explains the controls for you pretty well, like this "transtube" feature. You will never get the sound of those you listen to on albums or radio unless you use a lot of expensive equipment but you can get a pretty good imitation of it if you get the hang of the controls.
