I'm thinking of buying an used Peavey Stereo Chorus 212 (Made in USA, 1994) for 260 Euros.
Anyone who owns it or knows it, please help me:
1. Is it worth that price? YES!
2. How loud is it? I also have a Peavey Bandit 112 at home, is Stereo Chorus twice as loud? Technically yes it will be at least twice as loud. You have twice the available power as the Bandit (if I remember correctly the Bandit is 65W) and twice the number of speakers. It is a long drawn out explanation if you want it I can give that to you next time.
3. How can I use my BOSS ME-8 multiefect unit since it has no send/return efects loop? I've read that the in/out holes in the back of this amp can be used as an effects loop, but I don't understand how. I have never used the Preamp out/Power amp ins on the back of the amp, because the amp effects were enough for me. How they are set up is this...Channel 1 is preamp out (dry) and power amp in, Channel 2 is preamp out (mixed) and power amp in.
4. How heavy is it (weight)? It is heavey like all 212 combos I have ever handled. I think my Fender Twin Reverb is a bit heavier.
This is not a Peavey issue, it's that you are not using the ME8 as it was intended. When in doubt, check the manual.Bellzemos wrote:I connected my BOSS ME-8 via my Bandit's effect loop (send/return) but I wasn't pleased with the result. The harmonist effect (intelligent pitch shifting) was all muddy and weird - unusable. If I connect it before the amp (guitar -> ME-8 -> Bandit) then it sounds great. I also tried it with another amp (Fender Frontman) and got the same resoult.
Can you tell me why is that so and what can be done?
