I've seen a lot of praise here for Peavey Transtube amps, and when I saw a Teal stripe Envoy 110 for a silly price at my local Cash Converter I just couldn't resist. You folks were right as usual. What an amp! Rich, articulate, loud, responsive etc. and they are so solidly built. What superb value. Even Bandits can still be had for crazy prices in the UK. That was a couple of weeks ago, I'm now officially addicted. I don't need another amp, but a Silver stripe Studio pro 112 came up on ebay last week, and I picked it up yesterday. The 12 inch speaker adds a bit more depth to the sound, and the effects loop will be useful, but really the Envoy has everything I need, but I've got the Studio pro for those bigger gigs. Total cost for 2 gig and recording ready amps £73. Less than a decent night out! I'm an experienced player, and I've been through the valves / SS thing, and bought a fair few of each over the years. This amp makes that debate irrelevant - it's just a very good amp. It makes me play better. One thing that surprised me, well two things, is that it seems to respond very quickly. Don't know the physics of this, but I can play fast lead passages better. The other is that I can hear more detail in delay and modulation tails and repeats. I found this very surprising. I can't make any sense of the gain channel on either amp though. It's no big deal I'm mainly a 'clean' player anyway, and use pedals for more gain. Does anyone know what the 'pull through' switch on the Envoy is supposed to do?
