Overview

With double the processing power, models and effects of competitive modeling amplifiers, the VYPYR dramatically redefines the power and scope of modern guitar amplification. VYPYR amplifiers are based on powerful 32-bit, floating-point SHARC processors that enable highly detailed, accurate modeling as well as vastly enhanced flexibility and features than ever before available in guitar amplification.

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 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.

Let's start with the best first. The sound this little amp has is amazing. I know everyone is different, but the VT60 has that full, rich tube sound I was looking for. I'm not a bells and whistles kind of guy, but this amp can generate some very cool sounds, and the best part is it's easy. The controls are the most user friendly and intuitive set up I have seen. I'm looking forward to trying it out with the sampera II pedal. I won't argue that you can find a better sounding amp, but your gonna pay thousands for it. Bottom line, for the money you won't find a better sounding amp with as many features. I own a lot Peavey gear, and the quality and craftsmanship on these amps is tops!

I have owned this amp for about a year and a half now so I have experience with this amp opposed to some one who just bought the amp and is all hyped about it. First off let me say this is amp is very, VERY, cheaply made and I have had to have it fixed not only once but twice in a one year period. I am not a gigging musician I only play at home and this amp was treated with the best care you could have. The first problem I had with the amp was after I owned it for about 6 months, and I was trying to turn it on but and it was not making any sound what so ever so I had to take my amp to some shady part of town in east cleveland to have it repaired. After leaving it there I got a call 3 weeks later saying it was fixed and shouldnt have any more problems. Well when I get home to try it out immediately I noticed that all the amp settings have been changed on the module. For example the amp says its 6105 but its really the xxx amp. Anyways I ignored that slight issue for the only problem was I had to re-learn the diffrent amps. The second time it broke I was playing clean electric stuff at a very low volume with head phones in (the volume never goes past 2)and when I went to switch to distortion I encountered the same problem as before, no sound. The diffrence this time was I had sound in all the clean channels but none of the dirty or distorted. So after flipping my amp on and off I finally got distortion sound back but it was very, very weak. I am now fed up with this amp and am taking it to guitar center tomorow to trade in for something else that is less of a pain then this. The sound quality was good at first, but proggresively got worse as time went on. The cleans always sounded good and still do but the distortion is TERRIBLE. I would not recomend this if you play any types of hard rock or heavy metal unless the only song your playing is planet caravan. This amp has some very nice features on it, almost like a line 6, but a line 6 is much more durable and better sounding than this amp. The reason I got this in the first place was the man at the local shop recomended it and it is a good amp for the first 3 months but after that time period everything starts to go down the tubes. The only reason I am giving this 2 stars is the cleans sound very nice but that is it. The quality and reliability of this product is extremely low and I would not recomend this amp to anybody.

Everything you'll ever need!

By Aaron

from Upper Marlboro, MD

Comments about Peavey VYPYR Tube 60 60W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I upgraded from a vypyr 30(which I thought was AMAZING) to this and i gotta say, it was veeeery well worth the investment. The usb interface was worth it alone, not to mention the tubes and the speaker out. I dont think there is sound that you cant get out of this amp. the cleans can be as bright or as milky as you want them to be, and the distortion can be as insane or mellow as u like it. the analog effects sound amazing, the digital ones are not as good but still great. bottom line GET THIS AMP!!!

You go buy this amp right now !

By Sal

Comments about Peavey VYPYR Tube 60 60W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

Wow so i have played this amp in the store many times and finally had the money to buy it. The best thing about it is the versatility you can get crystal clear cleans, crunch, overdrive, more overdrive, and hey! more overdrive. This amp defiantly has enough gain on tap no doubt. the only downside i find is you have to buy the sampera pedal to access the looper but overall awesome amp !

SWEET amp

By Marcus Shreddatoni

from Stalker, PA

Comments about Peavey VYPYR Tube 60 60W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

It might take you a little while to come up with the money, but I think its overall worth the money. Peavey has pretty much created the ultimate amp. I play a variety of genres and it suits all of them quite easily. Pros: -GREAT clean tone -INSANE overdrive tone -LOUD speaker Cons: -Really heavey (no suprise there) -Can freeze sometimes, but only happened like twice in the past 3 months. So not entirely reliable, but it won't just completely break like the 75 watt solid state vypyr. -You have to actually let it warm up for about a minute or two before playing. You just have to switch both switches in the front on, and if none of the lights on the front are on, you can check the tubes in the back, and if they are glowing yellow and blue, they're on. It will be only yellow if on standby mode too...just some tips there. So dont go back and return it if it doesnt work first time you turn it on. Just has to warm up, then you switch it off and then back on again. Common problem with all tube vypyrs. But who cares about warm up time, I can't stop playing when I'm plugged into this beast! I love it, and you are going love it too.

PICK THIS AMP!!!!

By Jack Nickleson

from New York, New York

Comments about Peavey VYPYR Tube 60 60W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

This is a wonderful amp, it's loud, has a good clean sound, and has PLENTY of distortion for you metal-heads out there. This amp will play anything from blues to hardcore metal; if you want to HEAR what this thing will do, go to youtube and search peavey vypyr tube, then click on the thirteen minute video. It doesn't show all the effects but it shows you what you can DO with all the effects. Get the sanpera II pedal while you're at it!!!

EXCELLENT!!!

By Robert

from Beaverton, OR

Comments about Peavey VYPYR Tube 60 60W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I ordered this amp a few weeks ago as it was not in stock at my local store (bought without testdriving it), and it is everything all the other reveiws say it is. It is very quite in a good way--most settings have no hum or buzz when not picking strings, and the others mainly the high overdrive settings it is minimal. That was the issue with my last amp as it was a cheapie. Of course it cranks louder than i would ever need. This tube amp is the way to go--way better than the solid-state amps that sell for just a few bucks less. This amp will even sound like that if that is what you need and you have the unique tube sound if that is what you want --best of both in one. Get it. nuff said.

very good but...

By andy

from rolla mo

Comments about Peavey VYPYR Tube 60 60W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I bought this amp about 3 months ago and have had a lot of time to mess around with it. When I went to the store I told the guy I wanted something to keep up with a garage band set up without having to turn it up past half. When shredding the amp will do this, but as soon as you try and run it clean it won't keep up at all. Overall a good amp with a nice tube sound, I just won't talk to the same sales person again.

SWEEETNESS!!!!

By Peaveylover60W

from Detroit, MI

Comments about Peavey VYPYR Tube 60 60W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I've been saving up for this amp all summer and finally got it a couple weeks ago; and all I can say is WOW! This amp comes with a 12" speaker so you don't have to worry about not being able to turn it up loud, 12 amp models with both clean and distorted channels, 11 stompbox effects which take the place of expensive footpedals, AND 11 sweet sounding digital effects!!! You can also edit the stomboxes and effects, so you can get the perfect sound everytime! Also, there's 12 preset banks, so when you get that perfect sound you can save it to the amp; that way you don't have to turn every dial to get another sound. And when you get the sanpera II pedal, you get to save 400 sounds. You can check out my review for it, just look for the name.

Not so great at all!!

By Chris

from Hattiesburg, MS

Comments about Peavey VYPYR Tube 60 60W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I thought this amp was going to be an amazing amp, but was dissapointed. The SFX are pretty cool that you can use, but if your looking for distortion, this is not the amp you should get. The distortion presets are so terrible i'm using an Ibanez Stompbox pedal instead of the presets. And you cant even adjust the "low, mids and highs" on the clean settings so you can't get the most out of pedals either. If you dont have a cab with this, DONT BUY IT!!

Great amp !

By Jeff S

from Huntington Beach, CA

Comments about Peavey VYPYR Tube 60 60W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I've owned the Vypyr T60 for about 3 weeks and my Gibson SG and me love it. Getting great warm, full sounds with many of the amp models using no effects. Nice distortion and sustain. Still playing with it to optimize the settings for different songs but easy to dial in great sounds right out of the box. Digital delay, chorus, flanger all sound great. Previously, I was playing through a Carvin amp with a Blues driver pedal and find the Peavey to be so much better. Having the sanpera footwitch seems like a must if out gigging.

pretty sweet

By jake

from MA

Comments about Peavey VYPYR Tube 60 60W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

This is a pretty cool amp, but i do kinda have a hard time dialing in the settings. If i want to play a certain song, it takes me a while to get a solid tone. Overall though, it is a trustworthy amp and sounds alive. The tubes take over the sound and make each persons style of playing stand out like it should. Blew all my b-day money on this thing, but it was worth it.

Cant handle loud volumes

By The Dr.

from Mich

Comments about Peavey VYPYR Tube 60 60W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I really wanted too buy the Peavey over the Spider Valve as the price is near half but my goodness the only decent amp models were the 5150 and a couple cleans and the effects completely sucked the tube tone right out of it at anything over 1/4 master volume. I dont know what stock speaker is in it but it was muddy,lost and undefined in comparison too their competitor tube modeler amp by Line6 and Bogner The Spider Valve MKII. I wonder if the Peavey Windsor power amp that I assume is used in the TubeV's is the best choice. Very un tube like imo and Ive owned and played lots of Tube Traynors,Marshalls,Boogie,Peavey,Fender,etc....

5 Stars for the Vypyr 60

By Al Blumensheid

from Marion

Comments about Peavey VYPYR Tube 60 60W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I tried the amp out in the store, and loved it. When I got it home, it sounded even better. The tuner puked on the first amp (floor model), so I brought it back to GC and they quickly got me another one, no questions asked. The new one took a little while for the tubes to break in and the speaker to soften up. I�ۡ���ve been a guitarist for 40 years and have played on just about every kind of amp you can imagine. Trust me, you won�ۡ���t be disappointed with the Vypyr 60�ۡ��_it�ۡ���s a keeper. Be prepared to get a good workout, because this thing is HEAVY! I also bought the 2 year full replacement since it�ۡ���s a new breed of amp from Peavey. I highly recommend you buy it from a dealer like Guitar Center, just in case something goes wrong with it.

Disturbingly Good Amp!

By Michael

from McCalla, AL

Comments about Peavey VYPYR Tube 60 60W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I was GC yesterday and was looking for a good amp that would gets some pretty good distortion. I tested Marshall, Line6, and Peavey, and found that I liked Peavey best. Out of the Peaveys I liked this one even more than some of the more pricey ones! With my Digitech "Weapon" pedal it is utterly amazing! I cant turn the volume past 1 without making my whole room shake! One the back of the amp there is an output jack so you can hook it directly to a cabinet and the amp will act as your head! Almost forgot I was using the Ibanez RG4EXFM1, which I also recommend! Disturbed Forever Ten Thousand Fists in the Air!

Electric WOW!!

By Ted Gygax

from bowie, md

Comments about Peavey VYPYR Tube 60 60W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I just bought an American Deluxe Fender Strat and this Peavey Tube AMP from GC. I cannot believe how many sounds you can get out of this AMP. Just select a AMP, select a stomp box, and select a effect and your screaming. I was going mad the first night I played with it because I did not read the DVD Manual. "That Is A Must"! After reading the DVD, the light bulb turns on and so do the sounds. The preset sounds are great. I have been making up my own and it is very easy to save them. This AMP is a very clean sounding and can crank more than most folks will ever need. I also plugged in my Taylor Acoustic and WOW was I having fun. I need to get the petal, because switching sounds can be very painful. The only things I don't like about this AMP is the tuner is a little touchy and you need to pause a little on each string. The effects, amp, and stomp box knob controls are also hard to read. Peavey should of used a white color. All in all I highly recommend this AMP.

Doesn't get better than this

By Sam S

from Marinette WI

Comments about Peavey VYPYR Tube 60 60W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

This thing is incredible. I wasn't expecting all that much for an amp (not to mention a tube amp) at this price range, but i was very pleasantly surprised. There's almost no sound you can't get out of this thing (assuming you have the proper guitar for the job). Anything from super heavy metal to light, crisp clean tones. My personal favorite is it's crunch sound. Although it can be tricky to find (hint: B-Kat amp + tube screamer) once you find it it's an instant love affair. The headphone sound is better than I had expected. Don't get me wrong, it's still much nicer to just crank the amp up and play normally, but some people don't have the luxury of doing that. Another note: THIS THING IS LOUD. I've used another 60w amp before, and this one has to be at least 50% louder. If I put the volume at 3, the whole house is shaking. At 13, I have a feeling my eardrums would pop. Cons? I don't really have anything bad to say so far. AT FIRST I didn't like the sound of a lot of the effects, but over time you come to realize that some effects just aren't made to go with some amp models ( or effects). Once you come to realize that, you begin to see how nice this amp really is. One final note: If you get this amp, get one of the Sanpera footpedals...JUST DO IT.
