Jerald's review"Great tube tone using Transtube technology!"

Peavey Vypyr 75
Got this amp for a portable solution as it only weighs 38 lbs. Seen You Tube clips of people playing Metal and it sounded amazing! Peavey went over the top with this amp as far as their amps (Peavey) they moddeled. Priceless as it has the XXX, JSX, and Krank amps that are no longer made! 6505+ matched perfectly w/ you tube clips of 5150's too! Cons= I don't like the other amps moddled ( Marshall, Bad Cat, Vox AC, ect. Effects are ok but not amazing but adequate. Stompboxes are usefull. USB recording is a great addition!!! Amazing practice amp overall is the point and really does sound like a tube amp in it's sweet spot. Won a lot of awards in 20091

King Loudness's review"Great jamming amp"

Peavey Vypyr 75
The Peavey Vypyr 75 is one of the more mid sized amps in the recent line of Vypyr amps from the company. It is packed chalk FULL of cool features that kids today are ridiculously lucky to have in a $350 amp. It features 11 amp models with 2 channels each, several different effects (both in stomp box and rack effects form... there are two different blocks of effects to choose from), a separate delay and reverb section, and the ability to dial in tones from Fender clean to Diezel or Mesa grind all at the twist of a few knobs. It's a solid state 75 watt amp with all the same features as its smaller brethren but it also has the power sponge control which acts sort of like an attenuator and gives a bit more of a tube like sag and feel, especially to the lower gain models.


This amp can be a bit much to take in at first glance but it's a fairly easy to understand interface, especially if you're a guitar player already. The layout is basically a modeled version of a typical amp/effects rig. Your stompbox effects come first in the chain, followed by your preamp adjustments (amp models). Then this is followed by your effects, and then adjustment of power amp items (essentially your EQ controls of bass, middle, treble) and then finally a master volume to get whatever output level you desire. It's a great interface and sounds wonderful once dialed in with some great presets from clean to high gain.


This amp is great for many different sounds from clean to high gain. While it lacks the general tube feel of the high dollar amps it's emulating, I really can't expect much better tone out of such a moderately priced amp that is packed full of so much. It covers a wide variety of different tones and sounds great at all them. Some of the high gain sounds a bit compressed for my liking but for a beginner I'm sure it is just cool to have so many flavours of distortion tone available, plus all the cool effects built right in. I really like some of the low to mid gain sounds like the AC30 and Badcat with the gain turned right up as it gives a more natural tube like sound than the higher gain Mesa/Diezel/Krank models do. This is true with all the Vypyr amps to me, even the actual tube ones.


All in all I think the Peavey Vypyr 75 is a FANTASTIC bargain for the $350 new that they cost. It's really quite mind boggling to think that such a moderately sized and fairly inexpensive amp can sound this good with a wide variety of sound emulators. It's definitely my go-to recommendation for a good jamming amp as there is simple no better bang for your buck than the Peavey Vypyr series.

iamqman's review"Sweet modeling amp!"

Peavey Vypyr 75
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. 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 $300, which is a steal of a price for what this amp can do. 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.

Jerdl's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)"More than honorable"

Peavey Vypyr 75
The Vypyr 75 is a modeling amp 75Watts. Level connectivity, Front:
-Jack input for guitar
Auxiliary-input to import an electronic metronome or backing track
-Headphone output to listen with headphones (the HP Bypass)

At the rear, there are twelve one can take a strange ... which is simply a MIDI manufacturer (malheuresement. ..) to connect the pedal to the amp Samper, optional.

The amp has a HP 12 "Blue Marvel. Personally it is more than respectable, provide for those who work on land that is not wood or who want more low frequency during their tour in a board Walnut (in the area you prefer) because the event is not at all covered.

Level settings, there is food and drink, but in the overall effects are very honorable, I come back later. As against a missing Loop, available only with the pedal Samper.


The configuration is clearly not easy for a beginner if you do not shop for someone to show you how it works: in fact there a lot of adjusting knobs (10 exactly) some of which are "clickable" to access has options such as setting StompBox (The simulations of effects pre-amp) or passage Clean / Lead. But after hours pass, we understand how it works.

For the manual, prefer English, flee the French version of Google-based translation, however only in pdf.

In terms of sound, it is the same. It's a modeling amp, it can not be ultra easy to configure what ... but its being done.


I use an Ibanez RG Prestige 2620 equipped with Dimarzio. Clearly intended for the metal, it can be used as a can and other Vintage crunch, the Clean is not too bad but hey, it's not excellent.

Playing Opeth, From experimental and other Satriani, the amp is perfect. Lead channels, even though they may look a all, offers a good definition throughout. The cleans are a bit down personally. But overall, it is generally good.

The amp has two modes of stacking effects, Ormis Reverb and Delay are separated and used simultaneously with the other two effects (and that's pretty good):

A pre-amplifier mode, which simulates a StompBox effects pedal Effect very well transcribed, Auto Wah, Flanger, Phaser, Chorus, Fuzz ... all parameters.

A-mode on top after the simulation of the sound, and therefore much less convincing, except maybe the rotary speaker, and other effects such as Octaver and Pitch Shifter. Be aware that this mode allows to use the effects pedal: Pitch Shifter mode, the pedal can work as an effects pedal. This is also where you will find the Looper.

There are two modifier volume, pre-gain and post gain. Post a gain for refining the main volume knob, which you can quickly break down a drum if you have the misfortune to think once want to test the amp up, ie 13/13 (yes, 13 positions !). The 75 watts you will feel them. I think that 3 / 10 you should easily exceed 80dB in a room of 30m ². No worries about sound to a room or outdoors.

There is also Powerpong function, which simulates more or less a tube amp. It filled his role more or less, I personally put it at 100%, if I fall I find the sound rather flat.

And the gate? Bah ... Y 'is not (it is already included passively in the amp but I must say that even if it is not transcendent, the background noise is relatively muted.


I've had two years now, and I am sure.

Caution still the default software and pure hardware, such as from the output Headphone sound comes out very average, the ultra annoying bugs that occur randomly and when you turn the amp (stuck on one mode) even though it can often happen.

I tested a micro cube before, but ... wanting more diversity and not having a well defined line at the base, I do not regret the choice.

Plus: The big bank model, the effects of quality StompBox, the Reverb and Delay that are also quality, optional pedal board I strongly Samper.

The least: The software bugs during startup of the same amp, Headphone output, which prohibits more or less recording via computer music jack 3.5 ... out the microphone in front of the amp! Complexity to set the amp at first.

Otherwise, at this price, you'd think that modeling is honorable for an amp. Add to that the effects like Flanger StompBox or phases that are quality and you have an amp / effects with a very good value for money, as long as you want to skip if you do computer music no microphone recorder.
