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.

Peavy Vvpyr 20w amp

Got this for my son. We consider him a prodigy. He plays guitar, bass, drums and learning piano. But this Amp just has a very clear sound and the on board effects are just what he likes. This is build for using all guitars bad and Acoustic as well. He has used it for his acoustic and it's sound is very warm and inviting. We have a friend who works for Eminece speakers who make soesjersvfor peavy and we are very impressed with what was delivered here. I highly recommend this for beginners or seasoned players.

Review of Sweetwater & Vypyr VIP 1

1) Customer service and support; one of the very best I have ever dealt with. Have no issues/problems recommending you to others and would highly advise others to deal with you. 2) Regarding the amp itself; note the last time I played is more then 45 plus years, (ya I know, I'm old but rock n roll never dies). Still learning how to use it (my days go back to the 45's and 33 1/3 days). A lot has changed since then. Only issue to date was installing the download "Vypyr Edit Graphic User Interface". Luckily, I had great support and assistance from the Peavey forum group. In closing; originally I was going to purchase a basic amp for about $30.00. Glad I spent the additional $$$. Will update this review.

Vypyr VIP 1 review

I purchased the Vypyr VIP 1 as a practice amp. I had heard that it was't loud enough. Not true, I have never had to more than crack the volume control. Will it fill a large auditorium or noisy bar? I don't know. But I doubt it was intended for that. It is solid and very nice construction. Like all Peavey equipment it is made to last. The options it gives are unlimited. The sound is clear a bright with great definition. It is a digital amp not a tube amp. I have always liked the full, often warm and rich sound of a tube amp but for a solid state amp, this seems to provide a sound close as could be hoped for when you choose the correct setting. The options are nearly unlimited. I have used Peavey equipment in live performance venues for over 30 years and it has never let me down.
