Peavey Vypyr VIP-3 Guitar Amplifier

Once again Peavey Electronics revolutionizes the modeling amp industry. Introducing the world's first Variable Instrument Performance amplifier, the VYPYR VIP-3. The world's first amp that contains Bass guitar, Acoustic guitar and Electric guitar amplifier models. Now for the first time ever using our Variable Instrument Input a single amp can provide amplification for a variety of instrument types. Not only does the amplifier morph from a bass amp to an acoustic amp, to an electric amp. It also, for the first time ever in an amplifier in this category, allows the electric guitar player access to instrument models as well.

See the VYPYR VIP-3 in action with this video from Peavey:


Using appropriate technology, Peavey uses a combination of powerful 32-bit, floating point SHARC processors and patented Transtube analog circuitry to create the best sounding modeling amplifiers available. Nothing sounds as good as a VYPYR. All VYPYR effects, amp models and parameter controls can be accessed via the amp itself, with no need to hook the amplifier to a computer. Peavey's WYSIWYG control surface quickly allows the user the ability to see and adjust the control position, no guessing where the control is supposed to be, or having to manually move it to where it should be preset to preset.

VYPYRs USB bi-directional data and audio port provides and easy way to record, and or connect to our VYPYR software and store presets, get lessons, and practice to backing tracks while connected to your computer. All of the revolutionary features from the original VYPYR series now even better. More power, more effects, more amp models, Variable Instrument Input, instrument models, and more make this the ultimate amplifier.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (6 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great for the price "
Sound: The sound quality for bass is instantly enjoyable and very easy to tweek and mod if need be, so you can have your tone ready with a little effort. The guitar isn't as easy to dial in, but it's definitely doable. Once you find it, you'll be very pleased. Feature: Everything this amp offers is useful, but there's no line out, which is annoying, but not deal breaking. It comes with an instruction cd and manual, which you'll need because there's a lot to learn about this amp. All in all though, it's a great amount of features for the price. Ease of Use: The ease of use is pretty good once you learn your product. Some people are great at plugging in amd jamming away, but this amp takes a little more figuring out beforehand, but once you learn what it can do and how to edit the channels, it's a breeze. Quality: It's a fairly well made amp. Haven't really had an issue, but it's only left my house twice, so it's hard to tell. For what I use it for though, it's great. Value: This is probably the best aspect of this amp. For 300 bucks you get, essentially, 3 amps. In which you have, essentially, 30 amps a piece. You do the math. And at 100 watts. Come on, the value is insane... Manufacturer Support: Haven't had to deal with peavey yet, probably never will. Have been using their stuff since I was a kid and haven't had a problem yet. The Wow Factor: Just everything you can do with this amp. Basically all you could do to improve on it would be make it a 2x12 combo and give it a line out. Other than that it's a great investment if you like to just jam. Overall: Bought this to use for a solo project so I wouldn't have to buy 2 different amps. Have to say the tone shocked me, peavey really nailed the bass tones on this one and once I played around on it for a while I got a pretty gnarly guitar tone out of it too. The effects are pretty fun to play around with, but since I play a lot of black metal, I don't really use them, but just having the option is good enough for me for the price. Now my only complaint is that there's no line out. Which means no hooking up to a bigger cab when you want to jam with drums. Still holds up pretty well, but not quite where I need it. All in all though, you can't beat the quality for the price. Between this and my grind bass, I may never use anything, but peavey...

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Modeling Beast!"
Overall: Fist off, the analog modeling of the 6505 and 6534 amps are spot on and sound enormous! I was very skeptical until a friend got a VIP 1 and I got to hear it. A month later I bought the VIP 3 from zZounds when my Randall tube combo bit the dust. You must have the Sanpera 2 in order to get the most out of this amp, but there really does almost anything you need. The only downsides that I find with the amp is (1) the encoder knobs do not feel very sturdy so be careful with them and (2) the effects do not have a level control, but with that said, the effects are set at a good overall level and sound good with cleans yet don't sound bad with a heavy gain sound as some can. Another feature that is awesome is the power soak. Again I was skeptical as to whether this feature would work as I hoped but it does. It gives the volume much more play at low volumes but you can make it VERY loud when needed. Enjoy!
Style of Music: mostly metal with a bit of prog rock/metal also
