I had both a red stripe Bandit and Studio Pro. I still have the SP but I have always regretted selling the Bandit. It was loud and clean and with the resonance switch set to loose, I found that the clean channel could sound a lot like my cranked Blues Deluxe. I've never found another SS amp that could do that, not my Studio Pro nor my Katana 100. Best of all was that it took pedals extremely well. I sure miss that amp.
