"Best bang for $200"

I bought my Vyper 2 this year. I wanted a practice amp with stomp box effects and a bunch of amp models and distortion. I was shocked by the precision and tone from every amp model. I played my Les Paul, Fender Strat and Ibanez RG7420 through it and got to hear what I've been missing all these years. From clean to metal it holds it's own. The tone can keep up my brothers drums. The effects are amazing. The AUX in is great for jamming along with your favorite songs. The headphone jack works great. You can hear everything loud and clear. Amazing. I play a lot of punk, hair metal, speed and thrash, rock, blues and some classical pieces I transposed to guitar. It nails it. I totally recommend the Sanpera pedal. With it you are unstoppable. I played a 5 string bass through it and it sounds awesome. I haven't tried an acoustic. I probably never will. Acoustic guitar is too limiting. It's a great recording tool as well. Here's an example of how good it sounds. I plugged my phone into the AUX and played the Misfits Walk Among Us, dialed in a good dirty punk sound and played along with my Les Paul. It was so precie that I couldn't differentiate between the song and myself! That's amazing. I be had this amp since February this year and still have a ways to go before I be learned how to use all of its capabilities. Buy from zZounds. They are awesome. Best online music store there is. The payment plan is the best. No hastle, free shipping and great customer service. Don't forget the Sanpera pedal. One more thing. I am a huge Eddie Van Halen fan. I dialed in the Brown Sound almost to a tee. I'm also a big George Lynch fan. I get his sounds as well. I use Seymour SH6's and TB6's in the bridge of all my guitars. Have since the 80's. They sound awesome through this amp. My 7 string tunded down a whole step sounds amazing. Buy one. You won't be sorry.
Been playing for about 40 years. Was semi pro in the 80's. Now I play for fun.
Misfits, Exploited, Rancid, Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, LA Guns, Motley Crew, Dokken, Ratt, Korn, Slipknot, the list goes on. I
