When it comes to amp modeling I hate the sound of these things. The don't sound real and they don't feel like an actual tube amp. This amp sound just about as close to a real tube as you are going to get. Plus this thing just sound incredible for being a solid state amp. The tone is massive and enormous.

What I like about the Peavey Vypyr is the ability to control 400 presets with the foot switch. Incredible versatility and ability to play on just about any song or genre.

Just an awesome amplifier. This is a great practice amp and also a solid jamming amp. The tones I get from this amp are so powerful and thick that it makes you want to run out and start recording. I particularly like the 6505 setting, which sounds awesome.

If you are into metal tones and the lead that are fast and huge in the bottom end and midrange then this is a great amplifier for you. I like this amp with a Les Paul or other humbucking style pickup. Since most of these amp models are geared around heavy distortion and grind.


I would give this amp a rating of 10 if it had a speaker simulator output for direct recording or going direct into the house PA system or mixer. I am wondering how the USB works with the output selected for recording, but it would be nice to have an actually line out like the higher end Peavey amps do. If it had that operation then this would be about the most perfect beginner amp or practice amp.

At new these amps come in at around $400, which is a steal of a price for what this amp can do and having two 12 inch speakers inside.. I would recommend this amp to anyone who need a goo practice amp or jamming amp then is on sort of a budget. Or if you have kid who wants to learn the guitar than this is a great amp to start out on.
