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.

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

      I am a 53 year old newbie. Just got my Epi Les Paul Standard about two months ago. Was playing through an old 10 watt practice amp. My wife bought me this for Christmas. It has been an adventure in exploring new sounds and techniques. Learning how to play doesnt mean it has to be boring.

      There is an amazing array of amps/functions to choose from. All coming from a beautiful sounding amp. My only complaint is that even with the volume on 1 it is still a little loud. I play at home so I do have to be considerate of others. Plugging in headphones is an option.

      Next decision is whether or not to buy the stomp pedal. I think until I learn to play better I will wait.

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

          The cabinet on unit I bought resonated/vibrated very loudly on any notes below 'A' even at very modest volume settings.
          Modelling is limited to 2 options for Bass.
          Many of the effects are either not available or not well suited to Bass.
          IMO Peavey has oversold the functionality for multi-instrument use.

            Really love this amp it has a lot of features, and versatility, just got it and I am still figuring out all of its ins and outs.Planning on pairing it with one of the sanpera pedals. I can plug in either my guitar or my bass and it sounds great either way. I really like the 7string setting on it.I use it the most.Overall really enjoy it.

              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.

                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.

                  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.
