Overall, Its a good little amp that is perfect for the beginner to intermediate play or weekend jammer. The only thing I changed with mine was the speaker. I replace the stock Blue Marvel with an older Yahama 100w 12" speaker. Reason being is that my Vypyr was floor stock from GC and the Blue Marvel had an AWFUL rattle to it and was worn out due to the speaker cone being ripped around the edge. I blame the rip on the fact of it being a floor model and from taking extremely high volume abuse from every guitarist that walks in. Playing other Vypyr's around town this was not something that seemed to be an issue across the board.
Lots of cool effects to play with. They each sound okay but do not compare to a real dedicated pedal. The looper is cool if you take the time to figure it out not to mention buy the sanpera footswitch to actually activate it.
Good construction. Baffle rattles a bit when turned up really high but thats not until your ears start bleeding anyway. Which is another point...for only 30 watts this puppy is crazy loud. Bedroom level for my ears is on 1. Jamming volume is about 4 or 5. The volume knob goes up to 13. You fill in the gaps.
For $200 bucks and compared to a Line6 the Vypyr is fantastic.

The 30 I picked up is extremely loud but totally lacked any bass. Some say the speaker needs time to wear in but I swapped it with an eminence right away. The clean sounds are great. The distortion sounds good but are not overly usable for serious work. The sound breaks up when the volume starts to drop on sustained chords/notes. Could be a gate or DSP problem. Mine also had a high pitched feedback sound when using any distorted sounds (amps or pedals). With the eminence and my trusty POD XT Live this thing has become a decent little portable amp.

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

I've had this amp for quite some time now, and I have to say, this is quite the little monster. It has a wide array of customizable effects built into it. That's a bunch of pedals you won't have to buy. I would suggest actually reading the user's guide, it will be much easier to use. It's a lot louder than it looks too. The other guitarist in my band has a half stack, and my little Vypyr 30 can hold it's own against it. The only thing is, your saved effects are difficult to switch on stage and/or in a quick moment. I would suggest spending the money on the Sampera Footswitch that goes with this amp to make it easier to use. But overall. a fantastic machine and well worth the money.

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

    I got this as my first electric guitar amp. It has done an okay job, but I don't recommend it to everyone.
    It has a whole bunch of effects and stomp boxes that I thought would be pretty cool, but I only use about two of them now, and I use those rarely. If you really feel like you need that many effects, and don't have enough cash for an effects pedal, then this might be a good choice for you. I don't think that most of the effects work all that well though.
    Other things are that the tuner doesn't do a very good job, it's very hard to understand the parameters of the effects, and the tone isn't the best really.
    For most people, I would recommend something more like a small Fender or something.

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

    This is a great amp to start of with or if you been playing for years. Also has a headphone plug in so there would be not excuese of jamming out at night.
    hot sounds for classic music to metal. A lot more power than line6 spyder IV 30 watt.
    has a built in tuner and also a lot of effect to mess around with
    cant beat the price

    Not Impressed

    By Jarod Merle

    from Oklahoma

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

    I was an absolute beginner (at guitar at least, lots of other musical experience) when I bought this amp, and am still pretty much a novice. I figured that it would last me for at least a couple of years before I outgrew it, but that just wasn't the case. I find it very difficult to find a good tone, and those that are decent seem very noisy to me. If you have an ear for good tone, don't waste your money on this like I did; spend the extra for a small tube amp.
    Plenty of features, almost too many though. Most of the amp and effects models don't sound that great in my opinion. The tuner is useless and inaccurate, don't expect to rely on it.
    Quality seems fine, but not wonderful. I doubt it would hold up to much abuse.
    Wish that I had spent more and picked up a small tube amp instead (something I will be doing soon).

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

      The amp has great features and a quality sound. It
      loves to be played loud and you don't need to carry all those stomp boxes around.
      I wish there was an external feed, but placing a high quality mic in front that's insulated from stage sounds will do the trick. Besides, I once lost a good amp from a power surge by being
      plugged directly into a stage sound system.
      And get the foot switch as soon as possible. It makes this so much more fun and adds loads of features.

      I play alot heavy, crunchy style music and one of the amp pre sets is almost spot on for the sound I like. Great amp and super versital.
      ALOT of bang for your buck!
      Only had it for a month and no problems, the knob selectors seema little flimsy but work fine
      This thing has so many built in features it's crazy!

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

        i have a line 6 ax212 combo amp and its amazing and i just got this amp and it give it a run for the money and sound it gets super loud at 6 it has soo many diffrent opitions to use with it but the only problem some people have with modeling amps is not being able to use your stomp boxes and effects well you dont need those with this amp it has all that you could need. but i wish it had a external speaker output on it so i will get one put in on it so i can have a half stack with it. but as i digress its an amazing amp and you should get it. oh also the sanpera pedal is a must!

        INVESTIGATE CAREFULLY!

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

        I dont want to be completely one sided. I brought a student guitarist to a Store to buy a Line 6 Spider 3 15 watt. (For his budget this amp probably had the best tone and features in it's price range) I was introduced to the Peavey Vypyr by a sales rep.I liked the fact that it had a built in tuner on a 15 watt model and more storable user preset banks. It sounded pretty good in the store. However! the construction is comparable or even worse than a a behringer guitar amplifier. Try turning up the 15 watt to a respectable practice volume level. (meaning a level of 2 or 3) It sounds terrible and gets worse the more you turn it up. within one week it started to hiss, then the volume output went south (and no it was not a cable 3 quality cables were tried and tested). I was told that this amp was the answer to the line 6 spider 3 series. The Spider 3 is a MUCH better amp. The Peavey has since been returned and exchanged for the Spider 3 15w. Maybe this particular one was just a lemon. Maybe it's just a quality control issue. The concept of the amp itself is AWESOME. Why they would want to throw away a great idea to poor attention to QC tells me that they are out to make a quick buck, and dont really care about there long term reputation. I have had ALOT of trouble with Peavey solid state amps. I highly recommend that you go and try one and test it thoroughly! and make sure the store you buy it from has a great return policy. Who Knows YOU may just LOVE it, but investigate carefully!
