Open it up check the back of the switch.
if its disconnected or poorly connected re-solder it if that does not work, or you dont know how to; get a new switch
[you can easily get them at the Source or some electronics store]

    I believe these amps use a relay to actually switch the channels. The pushbutton switch should activate the relay and you should normally hear the relay click, if all else is quiet. Also the pushbutton switch must be pressed in to use the footswitch to switch channels.

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 have a Peavey Bandit 112 (one of the newer models but still quite old). I just bought a new pedal (Electro Harmonix OD Glove) and the Peavey is throwing out a loud interference when the pedal is on


If the amp is only doing this when the pedal is plugged in, there is either a problem with the pedal (try it with a different amp) or possibly you have plugged it in using a speaker cable (unshielded) rather than a guitar cable (shielded).

Peavey bandit 112


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?

I have a Peavey Bandit 112 amp that takes between five and ten minutes to warm up. It use to come on right away. any suggestions?


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.

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.
