I was looking for a low cost amp with a few extra knobs & switches to play with and ran across the Vypyr series. The clean channel is great and the OD channel is crazy. The amp has a lot of power and anything past 2 with the OD enabled is too much for a small room. Great effects and stomp box selection. Chromatic tuner tunes my guitar lower than my Korg tuner (and it sounds good either way). You need the pedal add-on for the looper to work and the tap-tempo meter is just a blinking light, I was hoping it could make noise as well. Many great features in a small package that will give hours of fun to new owners.

I purchased this amp new and still in the box. I was surprised by all the effects built in and that turned out to be the reason I bought it. Out of the box, it blew me away. I played on it at home and at church. It seemed that no matter which guitar I plugged in, there was minor tweeking and it was amazing. The main drawback is in order to use the looper you have to get the spanera pedal that costs almost as much as the amp. Also note: a bunch of my friends bought this same amp and along with me, after 2-3 months the amp glitches and tends to freeze up. If you want an amp thats loud and has multiple effects, i recommend dishing out more cash for a new amp & effects pedal

FYI: You Need To Apply Firmware Updates

By Don Wilson

from San Antonio, TX

Comments about Peavey Vypyr 30 30W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

Amendment to my earlier review about the buzz/noise problem: Peavey has a firmware update that takes care of this issue. Be advised to purchase a USB to Midi cable when you buy this amp so you can apply the update. Retailers should made aware of this since it would probably head-off a lot of returns. Check out the Peavey website forum for details. Great amp. You just have to dig into the details to make sure you get correct performance.

best combo amp out there

By guitar freak

from chicago, il

Comments about Peavey Vypyr 30 30W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

first of all before you do anything read the manual. i didn't bother reading it until 3 months after i got the amp, and i found out i was missing out on most of the features. The effects are very versatile and easy to customize. its also helpful if u get the footpedal. There so many amps/effects that it would take thousands of dollers to copy this single amp. The only problem is that the sound gets kinda messy at high volumes. this is why they should make a head for this amp. instead of buying the 30w one buy the 75w cuz then you can plug this into a bigger cab to keep a clear sound with lots of volume.

It's Light. It's Loud. It's a Peavey!

By Screamin' Strings Gene

from Rosharon, Texas

Comments about Peavey Vypyr 30 30W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I have a 25 year old Peavey Renowned 100w(2x12) sitting around getting heavier every year. It just won't died. I am a 60 year old guitar flogger that needed something lighter to carry around but with power to compete with drums for those Ventures surf rock jams. This Vypyr 30 is perfect. It seems like a 30w today keeps up with the 100w of yesterday. The Vypyr's got 12 of this and 24 of that, but all I care about is the fully adjustable delay/echo with a touch of reverb. It's Perfect! Printing the manual from the CD was little bothersome, but at least I wasn't directed to a web site for it. If that's what it takes to keep product costs down, great!

This amp is beast

By Cameron DeFrances

from Meriden, CT

Comments about Peavey Vypyr 30 30W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I just bought this amp a few weeks ago at Gutiar center in Manchester, it was used, and I got it for $119 dollars. I was expecting to only get some small 15 watt amp, but luckily, this was there. I had heard some bad things about the Peavey amps, but the guy there convinced me to buy it, and I definitely approve of them now. The amp is great, It's got really nice clean tones and reverb, and has some great distortion modeiling abilities. I use it for practicing with my band and even at small gigs, it's loud enough. So to anyone looking to get a good amp on a budget, I'd reccomend this.

Beyond Amazing

By Joe

from Waconia, MN

Comments about Peavey Vypyr 30 30W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I got this amp for christmas last year and it has greatly changed my playing experiences. The Vypyr can be any amp you want it to be with the stompbox and effects. The customizable presets are great. However, if you play seriously it can be a pain to walk back to your amp to change settings while onstage, so I bought the Sanpera pedal and now I have nothing to complain about.

SWEET AMP!

Comments about Peavey Vypyr 30 30W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I bought this amp to have something to jam around the house with and I am blown away with how many options you have with it. I'll never need to buy another pedal again! Just get the Sanpera II footswitch and you'll fall in love with this amp! For the price and quality of this amp, you can't find a better deal!

By No name

from Dont have a house

Comments about Peavey Vypyr 30 30W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

THIS AMPLIFIER IS THE BEST amp i have ever bought as a practice amp (or small gig). The rumor about the amp sounding to electronic is not true. this amp has amazing sound and quality. When I jam with friends I have to leave the volume at half way up to level one to stay equal volume with my friends. The optional footswitch is another benefit to this amp because it triples the effects and stompboxes that you already have on the amp itself. the features are better than the other manufactures I used to buy from and is at a very(very!) good price. I recommend this amplifier to guitarists that have been playing for almost forever and for guitarists that just started the art last night. its affordable. durable. cheap. fun. and most of all, awsome.

This amp Rocks!

By Rowboat

from Vergennes, VT

Comments about Peavey Vypyr 30 30W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I got this amp about 5 months ago. I play through a Schecter with EMG 81T/89 and this amp screams. First of all, its very loud for its size, I play at around 3-4 and its plenty loud for the room. Second, this is probably the most versatile amp out there. You can play anything from Funk to Nu Metal. It is packed with 24 different effects and stompboxes, there being a knob for both. There are also 12 amp models, including the fender twin and the Marshall Plexi. Each amp has an overdriven mode as well. You can get a pretty decent overdrive sound out of certain models. For metal, you have the Peavey 6505 and the Satch signature, and mixed with the tubescreamer stompbox, this amp really screams. You can get a really good high-gain metal sound from those combos. One thing to add though, is that you will definetely need a noise gate/suppressor of some kind, because any high-gain on this amp feeds back and screeches ALOT. This amp is actually alot bigger than it looks in the picture too. There is a big storage space in back for cables and whatever else. It also comes with reverb and delay, which are pretty good. If you buy the Sanpera 1 pedal, you have the option of accessing the 12 changeable presets more easily, along with a universal wah, and a short looper as well. There is a built in tuner in the amp, which isnt very good, so I dont recommend relying on it.For the effects/stompboxes, you can hone your tone by pushing the respective knob once, and using the gain/bass knobs to control your eq, etc. The clean tone is not the best in the world, which is why I gave it a 4, but other than that, its totally a 5, with the exception of the tuner. If you play multiple styles of music, and dont want to sell your house for the effects, then this is DEFINETELY for you. It doesnt cost hundreds of dollars either, its actually very affordable. This is a great amp. Check one out, youll be suprised.

this amp is a beast

By tim

from southbridge,ma

Comments about Peavey Vypyr 30 30W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

This amp is amazing. It gives you many different combos and the it gets even better if you by the sanpera foot switch to go with it. You can get any where from a classic rock sound to a straight up metal/hardcore overdrive. The thing i like the most about it is its not that big but it can crank. When I practice with my band I only have it on 2 or 3 and it can go up to 13. I highly suggest this amp if are looking for an cheaper amp that is still good.

Definately Amazing

By Xan

from Arnold, MO

Comments about Peavey Vypyr 30 30W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I picked up this amp after going in with 3 in mind. Didn't even bother looking at the other two. This amp won me over before a quarter of the features were even made known. And has yet to let me down. The only issue is the lack of USB support that is available on the 75W. Very Awesome Amp.

Feel the Bite of the Vypyr

By Ferret

from Midland, Michigan

Comments about Peavey Vypyr 30 30W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I purchased this amp a few days ago and I must say Dang this thing is amazing. It has various effects that sound great. Clean channels are amazing and the OD channels are mind blowing. The Vypyr 30 sounds amazing and you can get some downright wicked tones out of it. I will enjoy this amp for years to come.

Great Amp

By Jannie Kile

from Brooklyn Park, Mn

Comments about Peavey Vypyr 30 30W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

This is a good buy. Great sounding amp, effects are fabulous. The only thing is that the lights for the tuner can drive you nuts especially if you have a locking trem. Tuner is not really reliable, but it does get you in the ballpark. Also, if you have the amp sitting on the floor, you cant see the low e light up on the tuner.

Best amp I have owned

By bmeeks24

from Olive Branch, MS

Comments about Peavey Vypyr 30 30W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I have had everything from Roland to Marshall, ADA, ART, Line 6 - you name it. I was a long time hater on Peavey in the 80's. All power and no soul. But man have I converted. I played with the 15W at the store and for the price couldn't resist for a practice amp. After I fell in love with the meat on a little 15 I decided to go up and try something new for my live sound. The 30 was perfect. The variety of sounds and ease of programming are awesome. I eagerly await desktop editing software, but not a show stopper. The 75 is too loud for anything but big-room/live sound. The 30 is great. Blues to all metal - all are dead on and easy to dial in. Sanpera a must for live shows.

Huge sound, Small pricetag.

By Adrian

from Concord, CA

Comments about Peavey Vypyr 30 30W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I bought this amp a few days ago. Online it looked kinda small but when they took it out of the back stockroom it was huge. It took up most of my backseat. It sounds humongous and I love the different tones. It is solid state but it feels like a tube amp there is so much presence. I find myself playing on the other side of the room from it when it is on 3. I also purchased the Sanpera 2 foot controller. That addition takes it to a whole new level. This is buy far the best amp I have ever owned. If you are thinking about buying it, Do it!! It's the best modeling amp out there for the money.

Great Amp!

By Chris

from Spokane, WA

Comments about Peavey Vypyr 30 30W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I was really excited to get one of these out and finally play on it. I have to say this is one of the most awesome amps I have owned before. The tones are incredible, especially when you consider this is a solid state amp. Harmonics are solid, amp models and effects are great. Only bad harping on this would have to come in two places...The learning curve that comes with this amp and that the software is a little shaky.
