The perfect amp for multi-instrumentalists

No more having to take multiple amps to a gig so that you can play different instruments. No more having to put up with so-so tones if you only use one amp. The multi-instrument-friendly Peavey Vypyr VIP (Variable Instrument Performance) 1 modeling amp contains models of electric, acoustic, and bass amplifiers. The new Variable Instrument Input changes the gain structure and input sensitivity based on what instrument you use. The entire Vypry VIP series also features the easy-to-use Peavey WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) interface. No more guessing where your knobs are set when you switch presets; each knob is surrounded by LEDs that indicate their setting.

Versatile effects for professional sounds

The fully loaded Vypyr VIP 1 features 20 effects with parameter controls. Effects include chorus, wah, compression, compression/chorus, flanger, octaver, tremolo, rotary speaker, reverb, and delay with tap tempo. The built-in tuner helps you keep in-tune with a quick glance at your amp.

Heart of the Vypyr

Peavey Vypyr VIP 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. The Vypyr VIP amps also give you great, controllable tone, thanks to Peavey's TransTube technology in the preamp and power amp sections.

Built-in USB interface for recording

The Peavey Vypyr VIP 1 modeling 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. Just fire up your favorite recording software and start laying down tracks. You can also use it to edit presets via the Vypyr Edit Graphic User Interface or to install firmware updates.

  • Innovative modeling amplifier design for use with electric guitar, acoustic guitar, and bass

  • Built-in instrument modeling including acoustic guitar and bass
  • 20 watts of power - perfect for rehearsal, recording, and small venues

Great loud amp

Im a bass player and I bought this amp for practice when the guitar player comes over this thing sounds great . I dont know about country or jazz but rock or metal I love it it has me playing guitar sounds incredible! It keeps up with my Hartke bass stack on 4 for practice . I havent played too much with controls I have at one setting its great. The tuner works good too! I tryed plugging my bass in it wont get very loud obviously!! If you need something for band practice this is it has AV input too to play along !

Great amp for the money

Great amp for the price and it sounds phenomenal. I was blown away at all the different sounds I could get out of it. Yes it can be very loud. Enough to make your neighbors complain. I usually keep it between 2 and 3. No more than 3. Nice little investment. Great for garage bands and small venues or just practicing (at a low volume) in your bedroom.
Music background: Bassist, electric guitar and keyboards.

A lot of bang for the buck.

With only 20W of power it still will blow you out of the room, and others out of the Love the memory features, kind of like, set it and forget it. With inputs for electric, acoustic and bass guitar you won't have to change amp's if you change guitar's. The customer support at Sweetwater is great and Norb gave me advice that helped me select a pick-up for my acoustic guitar that proved to be just what I needed.

Peavey Vypyr Vip 1

Supprised of the power in a small amp.I personally can use this amp in a small to medium venue with no problem.Lots of volume for 20 watts.The electric and acoustic settings work great for me and the amp models are great. I have not had to mic the amp yet but im sure it would work great. Easy to transport and actually more than I expected in a small inexpensive amp!

My New Peavey Vypyr VIP 1 Cranks it out !

I really did not expect this much amp for what I paid. This little bugger can Crank It Out with the tube amps of the same caliber. I use it almost every day since I got it and I am learning something new to do with it every time I use it. I can't imagine myself needing anymore amp for quite awhile since I am basically a beginner guitarist. I am really glad I got it !
