i picked up a used Bandit 112 Transtube today at the local Guitar Center and it looks nothing like the models being sold today. is there a site where i can decode the serial number? the number is
10655043.

by the way...........this thing sounds amazing. best sounding solid state amplifier i've ever owned. i even like it more than my Tech21. it isnt quite so flexible as the Tech21 but it has a fantastic clean tone, a good thing since 95% of the time i play it clean.

Don't have amp database sadly. But, can post a picture and we'll be able to give you a year range.

black grille cloth, big Peavey badge top/center of the speaker grille, it appears to be silver painted plastic and it's the old style logo. there is a brushed aluminum strip around 1/2-3/4" wide and has the functions for the knobs underneath each knob3 pairs of round grey push buttons from left to right their functions are : first pair (upper) bright (lower) channel. second pair (upper) thrash (lower) gain 3rd pair (upper) EFX level (lower) resonance and according to the badging is was made in the USA with an Sheffield 1230 speaker.

I like it even more than i do my Crate V18 class a tube amplifier. this Bandit 112 LOOKS like it just came out of the box and it's loud enough to strip all the hair off a dog and small children :lol:

If your trying to "decode" the date....by opening (you may have to remove the chasis from the cabinet) it up you will most likely find hand written dates inside. Only piece of Peavey gear I've owned that didn't have this was a 5150 cab. Ironically i own two and one did have a hand written date inside.
