I know much has been said about the Peavey Bandit 65 over the years.....some good, some bad. I picked one up off CL a week or so ago, for a price cheaper than a used lawn chair. In all my years of playing, I've seen and heard them many times, but never had a yearn for one. I've always been very attached to my Special 130 amps to cover my SS needs and regarded the Bandit 65 as a "lesser" amp. Cosmetically, it was very obvious this amp had seen many miles of road/touring use and abuse. But, when I got it home and fired it up, I was totally blown away by its tone and power. I've been playing on this amp all week long now, and have run every one of my electrics thru it, looking for a weak spot, tone-wise....but I can't find it. Somewhere, in its long life of existence (it's an '82 according to the serial number), the "tone elves" came along and blew some magic tone dust in it. Anyone else with similar Bandit 65 experience?
