Once again Peavey Electronics revolutionizes the modeling amp industry. Introducing the world's first Variable Instrument Performance amplifier, the VYPYR V.I.P. The world's first amp that contains Bass guitar, Acoustic guitar and Electric guitar amplifier models. Now for the first time ever using our Variable Instrument Input 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, for the first time ever in an amplifier in this category, allows the electric guitar player access to instrument models as well. Using appropriate technology, Peavey uses a combination of powerful 32-bit, floating point SHARC processors and patented Transtube analog circuitry to create the best sounding modeling amplifiers available. Nothing sounds as good as a VYPYR. All VYPYR effects, amp models and parameter controls can be accessed via the amp itself, with no need to hook the amplifier to a computer. Peavey's WYSIWYG control surface quickly allows the user the ability to see and adjust the control position, no guessing where the control is supposed to be, or having to manually move it to where it should be preset to preset. VYPYRs new USB bi-directional data and audio port provides and easy way to record, and or connect to our VYPYR software and store presets, get lessons, and practice to backing tracks while connected to your computer. All of the revolutionary features from the original VYPYR series now even better. More power, more effects, more amp models, Variable Instrument Input, instrument models, and more make this the ultimate amplifier.

Amazing Modeling Amp Incredible Value


This little amp can do anything the other modeling amps can in this price range and quite a bit above this range. I needed a modeling amp for practice when I'm not using my tube amp, I wish I would have known about this years ago, I wouldn't have bought a bass practice amp as this replaces it, along with all of my pedals (except for a wah) this cleans up my space, gets rid of the clutter and costs a fraction of what it costs to buy a dozen effect pedals, the effects of this thing are great, even bass emulation if you want it, and it's a great emulator. The real bottom line is I don't feel like the cut any corners with this amp, I can't believe they aren't asking more for this.




Great amp


I haven't figured out all the bells and whistles yet but I love this amp.

Perfect amp for beginners or advanced.


I have owned this amp for a little over 5 months now. After reading reviews of the old Vypyr line I couldn't resist checking this one out. My friends, family, and I were all very impressed by all of the selections/sound you can get out of it. It has every effect you need to get started or just play around with. It is a modeling amp, but it does a wonderful job mimicking the other amps. It is LOUD!! I have never heard an amp thats only 20 watts put out so much sound. I keep it just below "1" and you can still hear it throughout my 1200 square foot apartment. I plan on using this amp for both practice and amateur recording at my fresh built home studio. I could see where this guitar would have a very valid place in a small-moderately sized venue. The reason why I checked "Professional Recording" is due to what I have read about preferences for low watt amps when recording. You CAN NOT beat the versitility of this tiny but powerful amplifier. You can even play bass, and acoustics through it. Great product.
