I own the Vypyr 75 the VIP 2 and now the VIP 3. I am particular about sound and feel. I own tube amps. I have more than 7 modeling amps. If you like metal such as Pink Floyd, Satriani, Steve Vai,Van Halen Toto, Boston, Gary Moore, all of 80s Metal, this is the amp for you. The included Triple x amp is the best articulate and balanced metal sound I have used. The 6534 is the fattest lead tone I have ever used. The Twin is darn good and with chorus and compression it does a fabulous 12 string. The Acoustic amps are great and the acoustic SIM is exceptional. Most metal factory presets are set too hot in g.It really sounds like a top of the line tube amp cranked except that the sweet spot stays sweet and the bass stays tight. TUBE AMPS GET FLUBBY BASS WHEN CRANKED. This amp has booming power and sounds more like 60 watts, not 40 watts, like it is rated and it is very light and portable. Sounds like the VIP 3 but half the volume. The best for smooth distortion and cutting edge tube response. Better than tubes in my opinion. Tubes fluctuate with room temperature and overheat when cranked then clearity becomes compressed. The VIP 3 is of course the choice for a live band but the VIP 2 is loud enough if you Mic it. I visit my local store GC and this is my choice to audition guitars. It always gets a flabbergasted look from store clerks and customers. I have sold many of these VIP s just by playing them in the store. The VIP series is the most versatile and easy to use amp ever. The Free Peavy software editor Librarian makes it very easy to save as many patches as you wish but you can save any type of 24 patches in the amp. Trust me that this is enough but those tweaker that need more get the VIP 3 since it has 400 user editable pay he's and runs on the same software. The Acoustic amp SIM is really good for acoustic and the AC SIM is very good. The impedance is perfectly adjusted for Acoustic. Consider the VIP 3 if you need it in a band otherwise it is a great amp.

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:

      This is the greatest amp i have ever used hands down. I have tried it all, marshall, mesa boogie, fender, peavey, you name it. Ive heard and tested all popular amps and guitars and this amp beats em in versatility and tone and sometimes i feel even in volume as i cant seem to get it past 6 without almost vomiting from the shear vibrations and noise factor. Used to have a half stack 100 watt and cranked it past 7 and it was only half as loud as this, bareable even.

      Technology has come a long way. This is the pinnacle. Best of the best

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

        I already have the Fender Mustang II combo amp but i was wanting to try out another 40 watt combo amp so i picked up this Peavey Vypyr VIP-2 and so far i really like it. Just as LOUD as the mustang and alot of different presets and tones to chose from. I like that you can also use it with a bass and acoustic guitar. The only thing i don't like is that you need to buy the Sanpera foot pedal to access the looper. But i already knew that going in and i plan on buying it. Plus i think the Fender Fuse software that comes with the Mustang is better. But this is a solid practice amp that could also be used at small venues. So what one is better? Seriously, both are pretty much equal you cannot go wrong with either one for the price.

          I fixed the rattling by drilling two additional screw to the back of the amp. Sounds great now.
          It could also be fixed by using silicone adhesive to stop rattle.

              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.

                  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.
