Product Description

Featuring 24 amp channel models -- both the clean and distorted channels of 12 popular amps for the first time anywhere -- plus 11 editable preamp "stomp box" effects and 11 editable post-amp "rack" effects with dual-parameter control. Players can use up to five effects simultaneously. When used with the optional Peavey Sanpera foot controller, the possibilities further expand from 12 in-amp presets to 400 programmable presets, with an on-board looper and more. The Vypyr also acts as its own computer audio interface, with a built-in studio-quality USB 2.0 output on most models that is recognized by computers as an audio device. The entire six-model Vypyr Series features the easy-to-use Peavey WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) interface.

Part of the Vypyr Series

Peavey proudly introduces its new Vypyr Series modeling guitar amplifiers, the most technologically advanced and affordable guitar modeling amplifiers available.

With double the processing power, models and effects of competitive modeling amplifiers, the Vypyr Series dramatically redefines the power and scope of modern guitar amplification. Vypyr amplifiers are based on a combination of powerful 32-bit, floating-point SHARC processors and patented TransTube analog circuitry.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (18 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "To sum up this amplifier is well worth the price I paid for it. I love the versatility and the feature set of it."
Sound: I love this amp. I was going to get the Valve King because it is so versatile. It even sounds good when you plug in an acoustic guitar. The Vypyr is even better. I use the Twin setting with a little reverb and chorus, and it sounds like the Fishman I just sold. When I plug in my electrics, I can get almost any sound I want, from super clean to insane. I play a lot of blues and I love the sound of BB King's Lucille. I was able to dial in the sound with minimal fuss. I don't use the higher distortion amps like JSX, 6505, and DZL, but they are there when I need them. Feature: My dealer threw in a Sanpera I pedal with the deal. I would have liked to have the Sanpera II, but this one does most of what I want. You can definitely use the looper with it. I don't know about the quality of materials used. So far so good. Least useful features are the multitude of rack effects. I only use a handful of them. I wish it had a speaker jack in the back (don't think I'll ever be needing that though). Ease of Use: See the comments above in the first section. The interface is extremely intuitive. I only wish the letters were larger, but I feel that soon I will learn all the settings by heart and not have to refer to the manual so much. There is a learning curve to learn all the features of this amp, especially the pedal. The manual is adequate, but wish it had some settings for some set-ups used by artists. Quality: I would give this amp a 7 because I don't know how road-worthy this amp is. I have had amps in the past that were bullet-proof, like my Bad Kat and Mesa Boogie Mark V. This one looks a bit flimsey in some respects. I haven't had it long enough to tell how gig worthy it is, and I'm not really a road warrior. It seems like this amp would be better for studio work than live gigs, but who knows? I would definitely have a backup amp available. Value: When you think about what you get for about 500 bucks, it astounds me. Modeling amps are dime a dozen now days. This one has a built-in USB interface to talk to your computer, which you would have to spend at least a hundred or so for one. (It really works on both my PC and my Mac too). It also has a headphone jack which I absolutely need in my apartment. And a jack for my iPod to play along with the real artists. Manufacturer Support: I have contacted the company once by email, and they were prompt with their answer. The Wow Factor: This is a sexy product for sure, but I would not lust for it. It is just an amp with amplifies a guitar signal. It did solve some technical problems for me with my setup. Overall: This could be the last amp I ever own, but if something better comes along, who knows? It definitely fits the bill right now.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Peavey Vyper 100 Watt 2-12 Solid State Combo Review"
Sound: The whole point of a modeling amp is to get the amp to sound like another amp. This Vypyr does that thanks to a new 32 bit floating point risc processor called Sharc, and the patented Trans Tube technology created by Peavey. You can get everything from some really great clean tones from a Fender Wwin or Recto to the apocalypse end of time distortion of a JSX or K-Stein. It's all here. The Vypyr doesn't try to model every amp ever made. Just the "clean" and "distortion" channels of 12 all time great amps. This make the amp extremely versatile. Feature: I'd like to see an output to connect another cabinet. Also, an FX Loop. If this amp had those two features, it'd get a 9 or 10. But because it doesn't have it doesn't mean that this amp will not get your through a big gig. It's loud enough to cause stars to fall from the sky, and you can use up to 5 of the built in effects simultaneously. Ease of Use: What you see is what you get. WYSIWYG. Can't get much easier than that. Quality: Haven't had a single issue with the amp. Works perfect everytime I turn it on. Value: For the money - the most bang for the buck for an amp that has built in effects. Also, there is a tube version of these amps. An all tube H&K Switchblade is 3 times the price of the Vypyr. Manufacturer Support: Haven't had to use support so it gets a 5 (in the middle). Can't say one way or the other how support service is, which should say something about the quality of the amp. The Wow Factor: This amp is perfect for recording directly to DAW. It's also a great amp to gig with. The "light show" when you turn it on is kinda sexy in the dark. Overall: I'll keep this amp for a while. It's the perfect "weekend warrior" amp to take to local gigs. It'll hang with the "big dog" tubies out there. My bandmate has an original Peavey 5150 200 Watt all tube 2-12 combo and this amp hangs right up there with it wide open. Do use ear plugs if you play that loud, because you can suffer permanent hearing loss.....what did you say?
