Peavey's Vypyr X1 combo amplifier, available at , packs an impressive set of features into a portable 20-watt package. This multi-instrumental modeling amp is designed for electric, acoustic and bass guitars, providing a versatile solution for any guitarist. Featuring Peavey's acclaimed TransTube analog distortion technology, the Vypyr X1 delivers authentic tube-amp tone in a rugged, lightweight enclosure. This is an innovative amp with built-in stompbox effects, instrument models and more.

TransTube Technology Emulates Tube Tone

The Vypyr X1 is equipped with Peavey's exclusive TransTube technology, which emulates the warm distortion of tube amplifiers. This true analog distortion not only provides rich, natural overdrive, but also leaves the amp's digital processing power dedicated to effects. As a result, the Vypyr X1 can run up to five effects simultaneously without compromising tone. TransTube technology helps the Vypyr X1 cut through in live settings where other modeling amps fall short due to their poor digital distortion and limited EQ.

Variable Instrument Input Accommodates Any Guitar

Thanks to its advanced cabinet design and powerful onboard processing, the Vypyr X1 allows you to switch between electric, acoustic and bass guitars using the same amp. Whether recording at home or gigging on stage, the Vypyr X1 is a versatile solution for all your guitar needs.

Packed With 36 Amp Models and 12 Effects

The Vypyr X1 includes 36 amp models and 12 stompbox effects, providing an array of tones without requiring expensive individual pedals. Amp models include classic Fenders, Marshalls and Voxes, as well as modern high-gain amps. Effects include overdrive, distortion, chorus, flanger, phaser, tremolo, delay and reverb. With the touch of a button, you can transform the Vypyr X1 into the amplifier and effects setup of your dreams.

Simple, Intuitive Controls

Despite its powerful performance, the Vypyr X1 is designed to be simple to operate. Its WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) interface includes LEDs around each knob to indicate its position relative to the current preset, eliminating confusion when switching between amp models and effects. All features, including the built-in looper, can be accessed directly from the amp's front panel without connecting to external software. The Vypyr X1 gives you pro-level tone and flexibility in an amp that's as straightforward as it is capable.
