I know you're not reading this to learn all about me but I think my experiences definitely add to the appeal of this amp & better explains why it kicks a. I play mostly metal/metalcore/djent/jazz stuff. I play an Agile Septor Elite 8 string with EMG 808s. I've been playing for 15+ years, I've owned all kinds of tube, solid state, & hybrid heads & combos. Some good, some not so good. I've been a die hard fan of Line 6 from the beginning. Despite the naysayers, they have a loyal following & for good reason. I've owned several Line 6 amps & I've been relying on my original red bean POD as my main practice/recording tool for at least the last 10 years. (I tried the newer HD version as well but it just wasn't for me) There's just something so right about the original & I've gotten so much praise over my tone over the years, thanks mostly to my POD. I will say Line 6 does metal exceptionally well & it's been my go-to since forever but I think it's finally met its match.

I'm genuinely astounded at the tones coming out of this amp. First things first, I've owned a block letter 5150 stack, a Valveking 100 stack, & a 6505+ 112 combo & I tell you what, this amp can get so close to those amps it's amazing! Not in terms of volume of course but the tonal dynamics, responsiveness, & overall sound, just WOW. The level of tonal quality & characteristics can be heard on all the other amp models too. It takes a lot to impress me & I'm impressed. It's the amp I never knew I needed so much. This amp, & frankly the entire Vypyr series, is a true diamond in the rough. Seriously, tone gurus, tube purists, & gear snobs alike need to set aside their biases & give this amp an honest chance. Trust me, I get the appeal of the "real deal amps" & they're amazing but, & maybe it's just me, why should I fork over stupid amounts of money for the genuine article when I can spend a fraction on something that sounds SO close? I'm over the phase of caring what others think of my gear, for me it's all about the tone &, to quote Metallica, nothing else matters. This thing is good for solo practice, band practice, & you can mic it on stage. Who cares that it's small & it's not an expensive boutique tube amp? I should also mention I'm a dad & husband & I work for a living so good deals like this are a godsend for me. Family is so much more important than gear so thank you Peavey for offering this kind of quality at such a small price.

I stumbled upon & purchased the original 15w Vypyr not too long ago & was so impressed with the tone it produced I sold it & got the updated/upgraded model. The difference between the 2...well the 20w is more powerful/louder of course, noticeably better overall build quality, an added 3/4 rear speaker enclosure (thank you! much tighter/deeper bass response!), addition of bass/acoustic modeling, the list just goes on & on as far as features go.

Guys I really believe Peavey is onto something here & I have no doubt that history will prove that I'm right. People are going to start taking notice, it's only a matter of time & I hope it helps change the whole dynamic for other amp manufacturers. You CAN give customers good tone & quality without asking for their soul &/or entire savings! Now that technology has come this far, it's obvious things in the industry are going to start changing & I'm proud to be part of that shift. I don't know about you guys but I've already spent enough money on gear! Thanks again Peavey, you deserve all the praise in the world & you'd be a fool not to purchase one of these amps. BUY THE AMP!

I bought this mainly as a bass practice amp for my wife, but I also wanted to use this for recording/practicing guitar and theremin. I started with the bass as that would be the amp's primary function and any time I hit a G (anywhere on the bass) the amp would rattle badly. Also, the low F - G# would rattle it as well. The only way to combat this was to turn the volume down on the bass.
I tried 2 basses, both with passive pickups. Same result. I had the master volume at 2, it just got worse if I cranked it up.

It was fine for guitar with a real hot gain as a default, but I couldn't get past the terrible bass response. I'm returning it.

It has a lot of cool features that should serve me well for many years to come. Very flexible in capability. It has more features than I will ever use, but who knows; maybe someday. This is my first amp. I looked at a lot of different brands and models of amps, and this is the one I chose.

      The best amp I've ever owned. Easy to use and comes with a DVD instruction manual but it's so easy to use its ready to play out of the box.if your looking for a few different sounds or styles of music it will more than likely fit them all. I haven't had the chance to use the bass function but the electric and acoustic are perfect. All around a great amp

        I really like this amp, though it can be a bit overwhelming at first. The instructions that come with it aren't the most thorough, but there are some good forums on the internet that get detailed in how to set the amp up for a specific sound.

          I bought this amp because i was looking for a cheap amp with a lot of features. This amp did not disappoint, it has a ton of features and lots of different sounds from clean to dirty. The ability to change and customize the tones by plugging it into the computer is great too, that way i can get just the perfect sound that i want. The only issue that i had with this amp was a loose solder that made it lose power, but it is an easy fix. All-in-all it is a great small amp with a LOT of volume and great tone.

            Could use a little more "thump" in bass settings, but a great amp for the money. Ideal for someone who has limited space and doesn't want multiple amps. That leaves more room for more guitars!

              This Amp Sounds great as a Bass Amp and helps my bottom end electric guitar sound like much more. I use it at home for jamming and demo recording. Only had it for 2 weeks but have not had any issues with the amp itself. Great price for my favorite modeling amp to date.
