    This month I am really excited to feature the Peavey VYPYR amp series. This amp is awesome, and has everything you need to start rocking built right in.


    This amp comes in several different sizes, has 4 storage banks for your presets, and has just about every stomp box you can think of built right in to the unit. With all of these great options there is literally no sound you can’t make.


      Now for your size options. This amp comes in a 15, 30, 75, 100 watt standard and even in a 60 and 120  watt tube model.


      It really is a great amp that can do just about anything you want it to. Which makes it great for a person who is just starting out that doesn’t want to invest all the money in stomp boxes, or even the vet. Player who just wants to carry around less gear!


      Peavey really outdid themselves this time by not only producing a great amp, but by also making a control pedal specifically for this series. It comes in a single or double pedal and could be one of the easiest-to-learn pedals I have ever used.

    Peavey proudly introduces its new VYPYR® Series modeling guitar amplifiers, the most technologically advanced and affordable guitar modeling amplifiers available. 

    With double the processing power, models and effects of competitive modeling amplifiers, the VYPYR Series dramatically redefines the power and scope of modern guitar amplification. VYPYR amplifiers are based on a combination of powerful 32-bit, floating-point SHARC processors and patented TransTube analog circuitry. 

    Featuring 24 amp channel models—both the clean and distorted channels of 12 popular amps for the first time anywhere—plus 11 editable preamp “stomp box” effects and 11 editable post-amp “rack” effects with dual-parameter control. Players can use up to five effects simultaneously. When used with the optional Peavey Sanpera™ II foot controller, the possibilities further expand from 12 in-amp presets to 400 programmable presets, with an on-board looper and more. 

    The VYPYR also acts as its own computer audio interface, with a built-in studio-quality USB 2.0 output on most models that is recognized by computers as an audio device. The entire six-model VYPYR Series features the easy-to-use Peavey WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) interface.
