      This is probably the best "bang-fer-yer-buck" practice amp. As an adult (spelled "Old Guy") learning electric guitar I can choose any type-of -amp, and any-effect whatsoever. (In fact the "Phaser" operates more effectively than any analog stomp box!!)
      Since I won't be turning up the volume with a pipe wrench, or banging it against a wall, or dropping it down the stairs, it should last ME quite a while.
      (I did get the 2-YR warranty just in case I want to!)
      You get everything!! Stomp box effects, it emmulates every popular amp model, 4 preset buttons that work like on an FM radio,knobs that came off a star trek set, upholstered in synthetic "water buffalo". All this and when you turn it on, before you plug in the input, the thing gets bored and puts on a light show for something to do!
      IMPORTANT: This unit 1.) will not accept ANY pedals.You gotta use the knobs!
      2.) Has NO USB PORT
      The top strap was mounted slightly off. (Big Deal!! Its a practice amp!! I HAVE a screwdriver!!) Some guys don't like the "vypyr teeth" on the grill. (So What?! It's removable!)
      This thing has only one drawback...it's probably too complicated to figure out for those guys that drink brawndo through a crazy straw!

      I'm in Iraq, I needed a small versatile amp to practice quietly in my room. The high gain sounds on the metal amps are really good if you leave them on the red (hi-gain) channel, on the green channel they sound fake and hollow, garbage. The clean sounds on the other side are good if you leave them in the green (clean) channel, the red channel sounds like the green channel on the other side. So basically there is no in between, you can go high gain on one side or clean on the other and it sounds good if you stick to that. The effects are lousy except the delay. The chorus, octaver and pitch shifter are so bad I hope someone got fired over them. And to top it all off the amp got stuck in headphone mode about a week ago so I can only play with headphones. Cheap construction and effects. I'm a peavey loyalist and I was upset over my buy. I bought a Vox VT15, I'll see how that works.

          Comments about Peavey Vypyr 15 15W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp:

          I have been playing guitar for over 15 years. I bought this amp because of it's versatility and because I like to play a lot of different styles of music. I love to play blues, Santana, metal, and hard rock. This amp does it all. It lacks the stompbox effects in all of the other models, and it does not have the usb out for the audio interface. But if you are looking for a practice amp this is it. I can get a Pantera sound, a Santana sound, a Clapton blues or a Stevie blues, anything I want. It's loud enough to play in my church or small gigs if you mike it, but the best value in the line up is the 60 watt tube version by far. Best amp for under 100 out there.

          Best Practice Amp for the Money

            Comments about Peavey Vypyr 15 15W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp:

            Wanted a practice amp that would satisfy just a few needs. A good distortion sound, a good clean sound, easy to use, and sounds decent at very low volumes. Got very spoiled by my 5150 combo; nothing sounds quite as good to my ears, but the thing is louder than bombs; can't practice with that in my apartment. Tried a bit of stuff: vox vt20+, blackstar ht-1r, and a digitech rp-255 through a couple of different small combos. Trying to play through all of them was like squeezing blood from a stone; just couldn't get the tone or feel out of any of them no matter how hard I tried. Enter the vypyr 15. It's remarkable how good it sounds, even at its lowest levels. The combination of saturation, clarity, and balls is quite surprising. Even the cleans have a nice kick. I'm not saying to go gig with the thing, but for practicing, you can't beat it. The harmonics are there with the distortions, as well as the sustain; the mesa emulation actually has more sustain than a real mesa funny enough. The cleans are really nice as well. It's not just a metal amp. Dialing in medium-gain tones is quite easy as well, just try the twin and plexi settings on the overdrive setting or clean with the tube screamer (or both). Not bad... It actually has a surprising amount of low end as well, which I think is generally a concern for amps this size. I actually had to turn the bass down for most of the presets when I initially got it; it's that fat-sounding. The effects are decent, good enough for practice, that's what I would yet again like to stress this amp should be for. I don't think anything is going to be a replacement for your favorite tube amp; at least, not for me. For practice, I don't think you're going to find anything better. Great sounds at bedroom-friendly levels, easy to use, and very affordable. I'm finally enjoying playing guitar at home again...

            Not bad for the price. It is really loud concidering it is only a 15 watt solid state. There are much better options out there, but this one isnt bad. After years of being a professional musician, I was able to dial in a god sound for Heavy metal, and I was also able to get a nice clean sound. The amp models sound nothing like the actual amps they are modelled after. I would reccomend something like a Roland Cube over this any day

                  I bought this amp because I was interested in the 6505+ sound. I was shocked to hear the "Mega" sound that this small combo deliver's. Some may not care for this amp, but only if you don't have the right pickups. I have a Line6 spider IV 75 and this combo amp has a more 'real tube' sound compared to the digital output from the spider. Now that I think about it, I should've bought the Peavey over the Line6.

                  I love this amp! This thing is very loud and perfect for the bedroom rocker! It has plenty of knobs and setting to keep even the best guitarist busy for awhile. There is a learning curve to this amp and mine didn't come with a book? Anyway for the price you cannot beat this amp. It is great for the metal tones. If you are looking for bluesy tones go with a Fender Mustang.

                  Comments about Peavey Vypyr 15 15W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp:

                  Everything about the vypyr 15 is easy to use , I spend more time playing know than trying to dial in a sound with a mustang amp. Simply put this amp makes me want to play alot more mustang amps get boring real quick. My music style is blue grass to rock and roll and metal. The VYPYR 15 does it all, my experience with the mustang line of amps really dissapointed me I bought the vypyr 15 to give that line of amps a test drive cause i want to get a much bigger amp and a hundred dollars is not going to kill me. With that being said im not going to get a bigger amp cause that amp does it all. Its pretty loud and its all i need i dont play live or even play with anyone so it fills my needs 100%. IN THIS CASE LESS IS MORE!!!!
                  Everything one needs to create excellent guitar sound, love the way you can quickly change your sound.
                  Not sure if it would handle being gigged with, great for home enviroment.The wood they used is what gives this amp a sense of cheapness about it, but as soon as you start playing through it you simply are blown away and you forget about it.But me i like to look at it too and thats wheen i notice it.
                  Ive owned a mustang i and still have mustang ii I simply dont use it anymore since i bought this amp.

                  Love this amp. It is legit!
                  You can get endless amounts of different sounds out of this amp! It is practically an amp and a pedal all in one.
                  Great Sound!
                  Can't go wrong for the price.
