  • 8 string? NO JOKE!!

    As reviewed by Cody Frye on 3/8/2014

    I know you're not reading this to learn all about me but I think my experiences definitely add to the appeal of this amp & better explains why it kicks a. I play mostly metal/metalcore/djent/jazz stuff. I play an Agile Septor Elite 8 string with EMG 808s. I've been playing for 15+ years, I've owned all kinds of tube, solid state, & hybrid heads & combos. Some good, some not so good. I've been a die hard fan of Line 6 from the beginning. Despite the naysayers, they have a loyal following & for good reason. I've owned several Line 6 amps & I've been relying on my original red bean POD as my main practice/recording tool for at least the last 10 years. (I tried the newer HD version as well but it just wasn't for me) There's just something so right about the original & I've gotten so much praise over my tone over the years, thanks mostly to my POD. I will say Line 6 does metal exceptionally well & it's been my go-to since forever but I think it's finally met its match. I'm genuinely astounded at the tones coming out of this amp. First things first, I've owned a block letter 5150 stack, a Valveking 100 stack, & a 6505+ 112 combo & I tell you what, this amp can get so close to those amps it's amazing! Not in terms of volume of course but the tonal dynamics, responsiveness, & overall sound, just WOW. The level of tonal quality & characteristics can be heard on all the other amp models too. It takes a lot to impress me & I'm impressed. It's the amp I never knew I needed so much. This amp, & frankly the entire Vypyr series, is a true diamond in the rough. Seriously, tone gurus, tube purists, & gear snobs alike need to set aside their biases & give this amp an honest chance. Trust me, I get the appeal of the "real deal amps" & they're amazing but, & maybe it's just me, why should I fork over stupid amounts of money for the genuine article when I can spend a fraction on something that sounds SO close? I'm over the phase of caring what others think of my gear, for me it's all about the tone &, to quote Metallica, nothing else matters. This thing is good for solo practice, band practice, & you can mic it on stage. Who cares that it's small & it's not an expensive boutique tube amp? I should also mention I'm a dad & husband & I work for a living so good deals like this are a godsend for me. Family is so much more important than gear so thank you Peavey for offering this kind of quality at such a small price. I stumbled upon & purchased the original 15w Vypyr not too long ago & was so impressed with the tone it produced I sold it & got the updated/upgraded model. The difference between the 2...well the 20w is more powerful/louder of course, noticeably better overall build quality, an added 3/4 rear speaker enclosure (thank you! much tighter/deeper bass response!), addition of bass/acoustic modeling, the list just goes on & on as far as features go. Guys I really believe Peavey is onto something here & I have no doubt that history will prove that I'm right. People are going to start taking notice, it's only a matter of time & I hope it helps change the whole dynamic for other amp manufacturers. You CAN give customers good tone & quality without asking for their soul &/or entire savings! Now that technology has come this far, it's obvious things in the industry are going to start changing & I'm proud to be part of that shift. I don't know about you guys but I've already spent enough money on gear! Thanks again Peavey, you deserve all the praise in the world & you'd be a fool not to purchase one of these amps. BUY THE AMP!

  • Fantastic amp, insane bargain for what you get.

    As reviewed by Chris Newell on 10/28/2013

    I can't believe this an is as inexpensive as it is. It really is the best solid state am I have ever played through. All of the amps and effects in this thing are perfectly modeled after the real things. I own a 6505+ and can vouch that the 6505+ model in the VIP1 sounds exactly like the real deal. The bass guitar and acoustic guitar models that can be used with an electric guitar sound genuine and not cheesy. They did a great job with that. The Vpyyr Edit software that you can download and use with this amp is great and makes fine tuning all of the settings and presets even easier than it already is on the amp itself. This amp also comes with Peavey's Revalver software. This amp is plenty loud for small performances and practicing with a band. It's lightweight and sounds fantastic!

  • Peavey vip 1

    As reviewed by JOHN DARLAND on 6/18/2013

    The sound this produces is amazing. I have the original vypyr and I loved it until I heard the vip. The vip 1 sounds real. You can tell peavey took their time with this one. The effects sound like they should. Every amp model has three channels, clean, lo gain and high gain. I play this everyday. The original vypyrr was great. I still have the 30 watt, but the vip blows it away. Again the sound is unreal. This sounds like your playing through a stack. I play rock and metal, mostly van halen and I can pull off amazing tones. I can get my sterling ax40 to sound identical to Eddie's balance tour tone. I have only had this amp for a month so I cannot comment on reliability.
