Ok, I've had this amp for awhile and can say it's awesome. That being said, there are two things I've noticed. The first thing is that this is a 40 watt amp, yet the Vypyr 30 seems to be louder. At least at lower volumes. If you put both amps at 2 or 3, the Vypyr 30 is louder. Weird, but no big deal as this 40 watter is still plenty loud enough. The second issue is a sound issue, and, as we all know, sound is subjective to each individual. Anyway, I noticed much more bass from this amp than the Vypyr 30. This is fine at low volumes, but when you start to turn it up it starts to drown out the mids and treble, becoming "boomy" and a bit muddy, at least to my ears. This disappointed me. I then decided to "unport" the amp by taking the back off of it. I have to say IMHO this amp sounds awesome now, much more clear than it did before. It still has more bass than the Vypyr 30 and, since Peavey added compression to the distortion as the volume increases, this thing sounds very close to the amps being modeled, closer than the Vypyr 30 does. It now sounds good when turning it up loud. I would imagine if you use the amp with a bass you would want to put the back back on, but for guitar it's perfect! Of course, this is my opinion, yours may vary, but if you have this amp and find it to be bass heavy and lacking in clarity try "unporting" it as I did, it may make the difference for you.

does a lot of things, but does none of them well. Cheap amp, cheap sound. This is not an amp I would use on a gig, too complicated even with the pedal. If you want a pro amp, stay away from this one. I bought it for studio use and it does not even do that well. It just sounds cheesy. But what did I expect for the price.

Every thing sounds cheesy, effects, amp models, all of it. And as far as playing bass thru this thing, FORGET ABOUT IT.....

The only thing that sounds decent is the acoustic guitar settings. And they are just that; decent, not great.

Comments about Peavey VYPYR VIP 2 40W 1x12 Guitar Modeling Combo Amp:

Used amp rarely, sat in closet most of the time. Had to send it back to peavey twice in less than 3 years of owning. First time was within months of buying, no audio, faulty ribbon cable. Second time 6505 amp simulators were farting out way over modulating with no way to adjust, control knobs useless,, obvious fail, updated software version with no change. They replaced the sound board, been fine since then. Bought sanpera I footswitch for live gigs. Cable too short and split second audio delay when switching channels. Other than that, works for gigs and jam sessions for the price.

    Comments about Peavey VYPYR VIP 2 40W 1x12 Guitar Modeling Combo Amp:

    This is the greatest amp i have ever used hands down. I have tried it all, marshall, mesa boogie, fender, peavey, you name it. Ive heard and tested all popular amps and guitars and this amp beats em in versatility and tone and sometimes i feel even in volume as i cant seem to get it past 6 without almost vomiting from the shear vibrations and noise factor. Used to have a half stack 100 watt and cranked it past 7 and it was only half as loud as this, bareable even.

    Technology has come a long way. This is the pinnacle. Best of the best

    Comments about Peavey VYPYR VIP 2 40W 1x12 Guitar Modeling Combo Amp:

    I bought this amp for practice and use on a worship stage. I must say there is nothing I need that the Peavey Vypyr VIP2 combined with the Sanpera 2 foot controller [sold separately] doesn't deliver. For a modelling amp, the sound quality is really amazing from such a small package. Notwithstanding the numerous odd effects and simulations that I never plan to use, the tones cover everything from jazz, to country, to metal extremely well. However, I will say that the learning curve is rather steep for this rig. Almost every button has at least two separate functions. The amp has multiple modes and learning to use the multitude of features offered took time and patience. I would also say that the foot controller is essential for live performances. It unlocks the built-in looper for practice and bank/effect foot selectability live. The Sanpera 2 also includes an L.E.D. display which allows for user-defined naming of presets and at-a-glance determination of almost everything else . MSRP for the Sanpera 2 is actually slightly higher than for the amp itself.

      Comments about Peavey VYPYR VIP 2 40W 1x12 Guitar Modeling Combo Amp:

      I already have the Fender Mustang II combo amp but i was wanting to try out another 40 watt combo amp so i picked up this Peavey Vypyr VIP-2 and so far i really like it. Just as LOUD as the mustang and alot of different presets and tones to chose from. I like that you can also use it with a bass and acoustic guitar. The only thing i don't like is that you need to buy the Sanpera foot pedal to access the looper. But i already knew that going in and i plan on buying it. Plus i think the Fender Fuse software that comes with the Mustang is better. But this is a solid practice amp that could also be used at small venues. So what one is better? Seriously, both are pretty much equal you cannot go wrong with either one for the price.

        Comments about Peavey VYPYR VIP 2 40W 1x12 Guitar Modeling Combo Amp:

        As others stated, you need the foot pedal to really do anything while playing live. They don't say that anywhere in their descriptions.

        Also, when changing between amps, there is a noticeable difference in the loudness. If you use one of the green amp setups (acoustic), I have to change the master volume from 1.5 to 10 to compensate. That is a big problem. So, it's ok considering it is cheap. Not so good that you have to buy a pedal to get everything to work, and the discrepancies in volume between modes is terrible.

                Amps and effects Sound great to me.You dont actually have to have the Senpera foot controller to use this live, it is quite controllable as far as changing presets is concerned with a simple midi controller like a "midi mouse." You can program up to 16 presets and recall them in this fashion.

                    My son and I just use this at home with a Les Paul, and the sound is truly amazing- anything from crystal clear acoustic tones to rib-cracking grunge and the heaviest metal tones are available, not to mention the different effects you can then program into it. Just tinkering with all of the different modeling capabilities is a blast, and the ability to play and hear some of the most famous amps in history is really cool, too- almost educational. And it was really fairly easy to use and figure out all of the different capabilities this thing has. And it is powerful! In the house, we normally set the volume around 1 - 1.5, and it is loud! I have no doubt you could use this amp on stage with no problem..
