    Played one today. Liked how it sounded. I like blues (SRV'sh like stuff and others), country, southern rock. How would that amp do? Played a Strat through it, had good Clapton'sh tone to it.

    It will do great ! I've got the silver stripe Bandit, and I think it is one of the most under rated amps there is. They can do pretty much anything.

    I bought one of these as my first "real" amp back the summer of '87 when I was 14 and saved every penny of my first job. They work really well with the Saturation low (around 2-3) and an overdrive pedal. Completely workable amp.

    Bandit 65s and Special 130s were, still are absolute beasts of versatility. I’ve used them with any number of guitars for classic rock, contemporary (for then) and classic country, name it.

    Some of the best guitar sounds I ever achieved were a tele or strat into an Ibanez UE405, with a BlueTube II preamp in the effect’s loop...output to the line in return of said Peavey (or a pair for monster stereo)...
