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.

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
4.5 out of 5 (9 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Amazing amp - Unbelievable Price!"
Sound: The tones that this amp can generate are top notch. Everything from crystal clean to dirty blues to 80's metal to modern death metal. And it all sounds great. I've played Marshall and Carvin tube amps for 20 years, with a board full of pedals and they are now in retirement. You really can't believe the quality and range of the tones that an amp this relatively inexpensive can generate until you hear them. Nothing sounds digital or processed. Does it sound 'exactly' like a Dual Rec, or a Plexi? That's for your ears to decide, but they are pretty darn close...especially the Peavey models (6505, XXX, Classic). The important thing is that you can get all the tone you need, distorted or clean, from this thing. Feature: Just rating the amp alone, I have to ding it for a couple of things. (With the additional Sanpera II pedal, I'd give it a 9 or 10.) Having only 12 presets available in the amp itself is a handicap if you play a broad range of styles. Obviously, with the Sanpera II's 400 presets, that's not an issue. Basically, without the Sanpera pedal, the Vyper series is unusable in a live setting unless you don't change patches during songs. A simple "Up, Down, Reverb On/Off, Delay On/Off" pedal included with the amp would have been nice. I'd like to see more control over the effects than just two parameters. The built in and non-adjustable noise gate can be an issue. I personally haven't found it to be too much of a problem, but if you use your guitar's volume control a lot (which I don't) it can be. I found the USB recording-out to be not very quality. It was very thin and transmitted very little of the tone of the amp. I was a little disappointed by this, but it's not a big deal because the amp sounds so great. But don't expect the 'recording quality USB' touted by Peavey. (Although some folks have found it quite good. Maybe it was user error.) To use the looper, wah, or volume, you have to have the Sanpera pedal. It really unlocks this amp and is worth the $200. The amp has plenty to offer, but will be lacking for the live musician who needs to play more than one style. With the pedal, it's nearly perfect. Ease of Use: For a modeling amp, with this many features, it is VERY easy to use. After playing with it for about 15 minutes, I was good to go. Quality: Going from personal experience, I rate it high. I know there have been some problems with this line, but I haven't had one yet. I've been playing my amp 2-3 hours a day for almost a month now and had NO issues. Peavey has always built reliable gear. I think this line had some growing pains, which hopefully have been corrected. Value: You will be hard-pressed to find an amp at ANY price range that offers the tone and features of this one. But to get it for less than $700 is a steal. I have always been very picky about my tone, very partial to tube amps, and not a fan of modeling amps in general. I was in the market for a new amp after my gear was damaged in a fire. I had my heart set on a Dual-Rec or Peavey 6505. Money was not an issue, and I would have never even looked at the Vypyr amps except I heard someone playing one in the store. Once I started playing on it, I was sold. (I ordered it from Zzounds 'cuz the store didn't have the 120. Zzounds has been so great to deal with, that they now have a customer for life, but that's a different story.) Manufacturer Support: From my past dealings with Peavey, my current participation in the Peavey forums, and the couple of questions I've had about this amp, I have found Peavey's customer service to be second to none. Very friendly, helpful, and quick to respond. The Wow Factor: I personally HATE the 'fangs' on the amp. They can be easily removed with a few screws, but not a big fan. Peavey may be trying to appeal to a different crowd, and I know some people like them, so go figure. I would not have bought it on asthetics alone. But I don't care what it looks like...I care how it sounds...which is top-notch. Overall: Easily one of the three best amps I've owned in 20 years of playing. While you could pay 3x as much for a Marshall, or a Dual-Rec, they only do one thing well. This amp does many things well, sounds great, and has eliminated my need to tote a pedal board to my gigs. I bought it for the tone and versatility, and if it were ever stolen I'd definitely buy another one. No doubt. With the addition of the Sanpera II pedal, it may well be the perfect amp.

"The best amp to come out in a long time. Thanks Peavey!!!!!!!!!!!"
Sound: I have found the right amp. You can play any style of music you desire on this amp. You can play Lynyrd Skynyrd sweet home Alabama hit the pedal and then play 80s Round and Round by Ratt. It is clean and it is dirty. Love this thing 10 10 10 all the way. Peavey has out done all the other big boys again. Thanks Peavey you guys ROCK Feature: I gave it a ten even though you have to buy the pedal seperate because I would have spent the combined total for this amp if the pedal came in the box. I believe that it helps the guy who doesnt have the extra hundred bucks for the larger pedal to get this amp or may have the money in a month or two. Bottom Line Great Amp. Ease of Use: EASY>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Quality: Great>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Value: Great amp it is worth double. Manufacturer Support: Havent had to use support. Kind of a good thing dont ya think. The Wow Factor: Very nice and modern. Overall: I plan on keeping this amp till I die or it goes out. I dont wish for either, but I believe Id rather have to buy another amp.(another Viper of course)
Style of Music: all classic rock. 80s/70s
