Peavey Vypyr X1 Modeling Guitar Combo Amplifier (20 Watts, 1x8")

Don't settle for just one amplifier sound! Perfect for beginners, the Vypyr X1 is loaded with analog distortion and 12 effects to help you find your voice.

Peavey continues a tradition of innovation and excellence with the VYPYR X1 modeling amplifier. This latest evolution of the groundbreaking VYPYR series features updated styling, superior cabinet design and acoustic performance, and improved TransTube technology.

Peavey Electronics introduced the original VYPYR guitar amplifier in 2008. This game changing amplifier launched many industry firsts, such as first guitar amplifier to have on-board USB, stompbox presets, looper, 5 effect simultaneous operation, and TransTube/digital hybrid technology. In 2012 Peavey raised the bar again with the VYPYR VIP, the world's first Variable Instrument Performance amp. For the first time one amplifier could be used for electric, bass, and acoustic guitar. In addition, for the first time ever we introduced instrument models to an already feature-packed amplifier.

All VYPYRs feature:

Analog distortion
Each VYPYR X is equipped with Peavey's exclusive TransTube technology. This true analog distortion not only sounds better, it leaves the amplifier's processing power dedicated to the effects, allowing the VYPYR X to run up to 5 effects simultaneously. When playing live nothing "cuts through the mix" like a VYPYR. Many modeling amps simply can't be heard in a live setting because of their poor digital distortion and practice amp EQ. TransTube technology is designed to emulate real tubes, and sits perfectly in the mix in a live environment.

Variable Instrument Input
Thanks to our revolutionary read more cabinet design and world class processing, users can switch from electric guitar to bass or acoustic on the same amplifier. One amp for all of your performance needs.

Its way louder than I expected. We don't turn it up past 3. The distortion sounds great. The amp modules sound great. For metal and grunge which my daughter plays its fantastic. I used the acoustic channel for jazz ukulele and it sounds great as well.
Its odd they make you choose a rating for manufacturer support seeing as I imaging you would only contact them if you had an issue with your new item and zZounds didn't resolve it
