Peavey has good rep for making excellent products. This amp is definitely one of them. With the exception of the plastic corners on the amp and the packaging. The plastic corners are so cheaply made and so brittle. So far, I am on my second amp (awaiting a third exchange from Musician's Friend). The first amp arrived with 4 out of 8 corners broken. The second amp arrived with 3 out of 8 corners broken. Just to give an example of how cheap and brittle the corners are: I was dusting the top of my amp with my hand and one of the plastic corners broke. I was screwing on one of the plastic corners and it disintegrated as the screw got tighter.

I realize that these plastic corners are cosmetic, but still, Peavey needs to step up their quality. I wouldn't be surprised if these amps left the factory already cracked on the plastic corners from the screws.

does a lot of things, but does none of them well. Cheap amp, cheap sound. This is not an amp I would use on a gig, too complicated even with the pedal. If you want a pro amp, stay away from this one. I bought it for studio use and it does not even do that well. It just sounds cheesy. But what did I expect for the price.

Every thing sounds cheesy, effects, amp models, all of it. And as far as playing bass thru this thing, FORGET ABOUT IT.....

The only thing that sounds decent is the acoustic guitar settings. And they are just that; decent, not great.

It's a lot of fun

Comments about Peavey VYPYR VIP 2 40W 1x12 Guitar Modeling Combo Amp:

I'm not a professional musician, nor do I have plans to be. I have played guitar and other fretted instruments for some time, and have some experience with cheap practice amps. This little guy is great fun, and should work perfectly when I'm playing music with my friends for fun, though probably not for a live performance at anything bigger than a house party or coffee shop. I have no intention of playing live, so no worries for me. The effects are a lot of fun (I can make my a/e mandolin sound pretty epic) and its loud enough to cut through my buddy's heavy drumming. Its not great for bass at high volume, sounds/feels like it will rattle apart or blow the speaker, or both. Also has a weird echo on most settings when I mute. Not the greatest sound reproduction when playing acoustic, but its decent and a lot cheaper than most quality acoustic guitar amps out there. Plus it has a lot of extra little things that you can do that just make it a great deal of fun, and practical for someone like me who plays lots of different instruments and styles with friends in a very not-professional(at all)-type setting. Overall very satisfied. *NOTE* Despite purchasing new, it came with one corner protector crumbled and a very small blemish on the top. Very minor, hard to notice and doesn't affect performance / doesn't really matter, but these are things that make me think "blemished/dent & scratch/floor model." Again, all things considered I'm a happy picker.

    Comments about Peavey VYPYR VIP 2 40W 1x12 Guitar Modeling Combo Amp:

    Was overall impressed with this amp. I already own the older gen Vypyr15 so I was already familiar with the controls etc. There is an improvement in sound quality overall, but where this amp really shines is the ORANGE CHANNEL of each model... the clean and dirty are both great, but the medium gain channels are really warm, very articulate, and even though I have not heard the Tube equivalents of ALL the models, only some, the sounds are amazing. The acoustic models are beautiful also, was very surprised. I was rather disappointed with the 7string and Baritone models (a feature I was eager to use). Like another reviewer I find there to be a chorus like effect that cant be turned off or down that envelopes the model, making those two lower tuning simulations unusable. But overall, the quality and sound still destroy the competition at this price point by far. The edit software is a nice bonus, very cool. I am a happy customer

    Very disapointed with this amp. Hard to setup and sound is not what is advertised. I would not recommend this amp.
    I would return to Musicians Friend but the shipping and restocking fee would cost too much.

      Comments about Peavey VYPYR VIP 2 40W 1x12 Guitar Modeling Combo Amp:

      I LOVE THIS AMPLIFIER. THE ONLY 2 DOWNSIDES TO IT IS VERY LIMITED WITHOUT THE SANPERA-I AND SANPERA-II. THE OTHRER IS SOME OF THE STOMPBOX EFFECTS DOES NOT HAVE A QUALITY THAT I EXPETED FOR AN AMPLIFIER. 12 STRINGS, SUCKS. 7 STRINGS, TOO MUCH LOW AND BASS, I TRY ALMOST EVERY TUNE I CAN GET FROM IT BUT OH WELL. AS OF THE EFFECTS, PRE-GAIN, POST GAIN AND IN BETWEEN ALL, VERY WELL BALANCE. AS OF THE ACOUSTIC SECTION, DUDE! IT'S BEAUTIFUL! SO LIMITED BUT IT'S VERY BEAUTFIUL. ELECTRIC QUALITY GIVE ME A BIG SURPRISE. I AM A ROCKER/METAL FAN HERE AND I AM PICKY ABOUT MY SOUNDS.

      FAVORITE AMPLIFIERS AND EFFECTS ON THE PEAVVEY VIP-II WOULD HAVE TO BE THE BRITISH WITH A LITTLE DELAY AND A GOOD KICK OF REVERB. I WILL RECOMMEND THIS TO A FIREND. DO TO THIS AMPLIFIER I AM WILING TO SPEND A LITTLE EXTRA FOR THE SANPERA 2 TO SEE IT'S FULL POTENTIAL. EVEN THOUGH, IT'S A CHEAP WAY FOR SPENDING MONEY ON A LIMITED SOURCE TO BUY THE EXTENTION FOR IT BUT I AM EXTREMELY HAPPY FOR WHAT I HAVE.
      HOPE THIS IS GOOD FOR YOU TO DECIDE.
      IF YOU LIKE ROCK AND METAL. I RECOMMNED THOSE BANDS FOR SURE!

      Comments about Peavey VYPYR VIP 2 40W 1x12 Guitar Modeling Combo Amp:

      I have found this to be a very versatile practice amp. It sounds good at low volume and with the editing capabilities there hasn't been a guitar sound I haven't been able to imitate. Does it sound as good as some more expensive amps? No, but for this price and what I use it for I have been very happy with it. The only trouble I've had with it is it doesn't want to connect to my PC to use as an interface. I am eager to get the Sanpera 2 foot controller that works with this amp, too bad the pedal is more expensive than the amp, and used pedals seem to be hard to find.
      I purchased this as a restock item and one corner bracket was cracked, a common problem, but unimportant. It took me 3 days after buying the amp to even notice it.

      I would give this amp 4.5/5 stars.

      I play for fun and none of my buddys play music but with my drum machine and looper it is like having a band. I think if you are wanting to learn to play this amp is great. I will never use all the options but it may be great to have once I become a better player.

        The amp is reasonably priced but is incomplete without the optional pedal. No way the looper functions without an additional purchase which you aren't aware of until you read the manual that comes with it. Clean and punchy sound.

          Comments about Peavey VYPYR VIP 2 40W 1x12 Guitar Modeling Combo Amp:

          This is a mostly a copy of my VIP-3 review but applies here, if you choose wisely matching your musical knowledge and skill you will be happy. The VIP 2 is much more user friendly overall so unless you have a vast knowledge of effects boxes and amps you are in for a lot of trial and error. Called Peavey, was told that the possibilities were so vast there was not really any documentation of effects settings that were pre-programed into the amp available. There is not any listing of what the various effects boxes are or what they do. The VIP-1 & VIP-2 when you select a input function you only see the amps and boxes that relate to that input, not so with the VIP-3. Electric, Acoustic or Bass you are presented with the same list of amps and boxes. So unless you are quite knowledgeable or are just a good enough musician where you like to experiment, I would suggest seriously consider the VIP-2 it is much more user friendly. I returned the VIP-3 and bought the VIP-2 much happier even if I though after reimbursing the shipping cost and paying to ship the VIP-3 back the end cost of my VIP-2 was almost the same as the VIP-3. All of the VIP amps are excellent amps but make you choice carefully, weigh you needs and experience. The rating value is a hard choice, if you chose the correct VIP for you knowledge and skill lever, it will be excellent. In my case since I had know idea what most of the effects boxes and amps were and Peavey could not provide me with that information the amp left a lot to be desired. In the manual most of the amps have a brief description in the VIP-2 section but the VIP-3 ads a few more that are not in the manual at all. I repeat make your choice carefully, if you choose the right model for your needs you will be a happy musician. Unless you are sure you absolutely need the 100Watts, buy the VIP 2, Notice when you watch the demos on Peavey's site they show mostly the VIP-2 not the VIP-3, something to think about.
