OVERVIEW

Technologically advanced and affordable guitar modeling amplifier.

With double the processing power, models and effects of competitive modeling amplifiers, the VYPYR dramatically redefines the power and scope of modern guitar amplification. VYPYR amplifiers are based on powerful 32-bit, floating-point SHARC processors that enable highly detailed, accurate modeling as well as vastly enhanced flexibility and features than ever before available in guitar amplification.

Featuring 24 amp channel models--both the clean and distorted channels of 12 popular amps for the first time anywhere--plus 11 editable preamp "stomp box" effects and 11 editable post-amp "rack" effects with dual-parameter control. Players can use up to five effects simultaneously. When used with the optional Peavey Sanpera foot controller, the possibilities further expand from 12 in-amp presets to 400 programmable presets, with an on-board looper and more. The VYPYR amp also acts as its own computer audio interface, with a built-in studio-quality USB 2.0 output on most models that is recognized by computers as an audio device. The entire six-model VYPYR Series features the easy-to-use Peavey WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) interface.

FEATURES
  • 75 watts
  • 4 channels with 3-band EQ, master volume and pre- and post-gain controls

It's a gamble. You can have an excellent rig-in-one, or you can be teased and disapointed. If you're a beginner. i would recommend getting a Fender Mustang III. If you're an experienced player, I would recommend saving a little more and getting a 22w 1X12 bugera tube amp.
This amp has plenty of effects to play with, even the same effect in different places in the signal path for different tonal and responsive qualities. It has plenty of amp models, much more than a Line 6 Spider or Fender Mustang. The arrangement of the signal path is better than any other modeling amp I've used. And having the delay seperate (with the reverb) is such a nice touch.
The sound quality is Superb. The distortion sounds very organic and the frequency response range is massive. Especially impressive low end. The effects quality doesnt sound as digital as a line 6, about the same quality as a mustang, although less editable. It is quicker to dial in a good usable sound though. The build is fairly sturdy, I took the plastic "fangs" off mine and it looks better. You can always put them back if you need to sell it or something. Overall, a great quality amp, decent for gigs and practices. You'll definitely find many sounds you'll love. The only problem with mine and a few others is that it just stopped working after about a year. I beleive it's a blown fuse, which would be a very quick and easy replacement but here's problem 2: no access to the fuse through the back panel. You have to get inside and find out that its soldered to the circuit board, and then void all warranties you might have had. I would much rather pay an extra $50 for better parts and construction. Peavey really cut back on this one. It's a shame because it's such an excellent amp.
If they didnt have the issues that they have, it would be such a steal. Although editing software would be nice to have.

Simply put, stay away from this one. Save your pennies and find something else and save yourself some time and tears.
I purchased the Vypyr 75 in June of 2010. 4 months later, it developed an annoying high-pitched squeal on the high-gain channels. I had it shipped back for warranty work and three weeks later it was back to normal. Fast forward 4 months, the squeal returns along with some other annoying issues such as no sound from time to time and the need to shut off/turn back on several times to get it working again. Shipped back again in July of 2011. Upon return, it only took about 2 months for the squeal to rear its head again along with the Sanpera pedal no longer working. So ONCE AGAIN, its heading back to Peavey for repair.

While I did like many of the different amp sounds and effects, I too have found that this amp doesn't seem to get any louder past a certain point. Since I play in a band, this has proven to be troublesome on more than one occasion as you can imagine. Factor in the lack of product reliability, this has proven to be a bad purchase, period.

So, my advise is save your money to buy something better. The Fender Mustang amps have all the features of the Peavey Vypyr line and appear to be much more reliable. The bottom line is that the Vypyr line is cheaply made, shoddy, and un-reliable.
As mentioned before, heading for its third warranty repair. That should say enough about the lack of quality here.
For $300, it has a lot of bells and whistles. Too bad the overall package and execution isn't consistent. You're getting what you pay for.

Vypyr is a must have amplifier!

By muzzy steve

from Detroit Rock City

Comments about Peavey Vypyr 75 75W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I have a 6505+ 1/2 stack that I use live, and needed a practice amp I could use to rehearse, because I didn't want to carry my stage rig all over the place in my car 2 times a week. I was sceptical because I'm a tube snob, but I also didn't want to have to ever re-tube my practice amp. All I can say is Holy Cow! If you haven't played the Vypyr at volume, you have to do it. It's not enough to just plug in at the store and check it out at 1/10th of the volume. When you really open it up, somehow it still sounds and feels like a tube amp. I OWN and play a real 6505, and the 6505 setting on the Vypyr is really darn close!!!

Wicked Awesome

Comments about Peavey Vypyr 75 75W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

A world of guitar tones, effects, and features rolled into one well built box of awesomeness. It's got everything you'd ever need as a hobby musician, and it's tough enough to take on stage. I don't think anyone could be disappointed with this amp.
The Peavey VYPYR 75 is loaded with features. Between the amp models, rack effects, pedal effects, EQ settings, and everything else included, you have virtually every guitar sound imaginable at your fingertips. I have owned mine for a year, and I've just scratched the surface of what it can do. It would take months of continuous playing to experiment with all of the combinations available. The regular 75 is a solid state model, but it can crank out some convincing tube-like sounds. The "Power Sponge" feature is a nice feature for getting a a great full tone at practice room levels. If you're interested in recording, the USB port on the larger models is a cool feature as well. One of my favorite features is the ability to save 12 of your favorite settings, and going back to any of them with the push of a button. The onboard tuner is a handy feature as well.
There are no corners cut with the VYPYR Series. They are well built, loaded with features and functions, and crank out amazing sound.
I haven't tryed every modeling amp available, but I can't imagine anything better that's anywhere remotely close to this price range.

Great Effects

By TheGlassEffect

from Bloomington, IL

Comments about Peavey Vypyr 75 75W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I have owned the Peavey Vypyr 75W for about 2 years, so naturally I believe it is an excellent amp. The effects come in plenty, and the tone is outstanding--the distortions are meant to model tube amps, so the sound that it puts out sounds a lot like the tube amp, but is lacking the tube warmth. This amp can literally sound like anything. It will satisfy anyones playing style and will work great with any guitar. Here are the downfalls-This amp is not very reliable. The computer inside sometimes freezes and will either do one of the following: not produce and sound, halfass the sound youre trying to get, freeze up and chop the sound you are playing, or completely shut off and blows the fuse. All of these have occured to me, and yes, I was playing live. These occurances happened within the first year I've owned the amp, and it sort of solved itself.Overall, this amp is worth the 300 bucks. You could even take the amp and turn it into an effects processor and preamp for a better tube amp; which is what I plan to do. If you do purchase this, make sure you play it enough to where you know the amp like the back of your hand, so if something goes wrong, you can fix it.Also, the fuse is really hard to get to: it's inside the actual amplifier itself, no external accessibility.

Comments about Peavey Vypyr 75 75W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I have spent tons of money on amps. Went down the isles at the store looking to plug into one of my premium amps to test a new guitar. Every Isle was packed except the Pevey. So I plugged into this one. Holy crap! This amp is awesome expecially considering the size and price. I bought it. I have seen a few negitive reviews here but every time I plug into it it performs flawless.

Don't bother

By Ropski

Comments about Peavey Vypyr 75 75W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I bought this amp about a year ago. You can get some decent sounds out of it, and it is very loud. But if the volume knob worked any better it would be a 90 year old man with ED. It has a pretty limited tone, OK distortion, horrible reverb and echo. It has cool effects, but other than that this amp sounds worse than my 15watt crate going through a Ibanez Smashbox. Literally. The input sometimes just cuts out, picks up radio stations, or just buzzes and crunches for no reason whatsoever. Do not bother buying this amp.Overall if you are able to spend more money on an amp, DO IT. I would never ever buy this amp again let alone recommend it.
