[NAMM] Peavey debuts new Vypyr VIP Series amps

Peavey introduces the Vypyr Variable Instrument Performance series that contains Bass guitar, Acoustic guitar and Electric guitar amplifier models.

The Vypyr VIP amps feature Peavey’s Variable Instrument Input with which 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 allows the electric guitar player access to instrument models as well. Guitarists have access to over 50 amp, instrument and stompbox models as well as rack style effects

Peavey uses a combination of 32-bit, floating-point SHARC processors and patented TransTube analog circuitry to create the modeling amplifiers. A USB bi-directional data and audio port allows users to connect to a computer and record, access the Vypyr Edit software and store presets, get lessons, and practice to backing tracks. The Vypyr VIP series also includes a MIDI port for use with Sanpera foot controllers and firmware updates.

The Vypyr VIP series consists of three combos: the 20-Watt VIP 1, the 40-Watt VIP 2, and the 100-Watt VIP 3. With Peavey’s PowerSponge™ variable power, players can adjust the power output to suit any playing situation.
