The perfect amp for multi-instrumentalists

No more having to take multiple amps to a gig so 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) 2 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 Vypyr 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 2 features 25 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. The Vypyr VIP 2 goes into new territory by offering instrument models. Turn your electric guitar into an acoustic, 12-string, resonator, 7-string, bass, baritone guitar, and more.

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 2 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.

Fantastic Amp

I was thinking about purchasing the Fender 40 watt acoustic amp since a friend of mine had one and he really liked it and it does sound good. But then I ran across the Vypyr ViP 2 here at Sweetwater and for just $20 bucks more I could get several amps in one including a bass amp. I'm not dissapointed. This is a fantastic amp for the money. I'm not a great guitarist and will never use many of the electric amps that are on it but the bass amps and the acoustic amps alone are worth the money. And the fact that I can change the settings if I want to and save them is a big plus. I play Ukulele and a ubass more than I do guitar and this amp makes my baritones sound like a different instrument. I plan on getting the footswitch later in order to inhance it's use even further. There are several things on it that I will never use but if you are into using your MP3 player and heavy metal or other types of electric guitar as well as acoustic, this amp is for you. I highly recommend it.
Music background: Guitar, Ukulele, piano, keyboards / country/folk/gospel

Nice Amp

This is a pretty great amp. Gets pretty loud and I've already tried it with all three options (acoustic, electric, bass). Sounds clean and I like the effect options on it too. Definitely recommend. Arrived in great time and was easy to just plug in and play. Will use in the future at small gigs.


Great little amp. Surprisingly loud and is very good at emulating classic amps. You might want either footswitch to facilitate changing tones on the fly. For the money, totally satisfied.
Music background: Semi-pro for 40+ years

Cool Amp

This is a cool amp. It even makes my $125 dollar Epiphone Les Paul sound good. If you are looking for an amp that has stompboxes, effects and 10 instrument models this is the one!
Music background: Hobbyist


Its just amazing. i purchased it so i could use guitar and bass on the same amp, with the added bonus of some sound effects. the worst thing is that you get lost playing with the sounds and dont get practice in.
Music background: lifelong hobby

Sweetwater Advice

Trent Jones

The Vypyr series is one of the best investments I've made. Its preamp processing and effects sound incredible, and the aux in function lets me plug up my cell phone to practice with tracks playing right through the speaker. The amp is also durable and capable for live production - especially with the Sanpera 2 footswitch controller, which gives me volume control and a wammy pedal.

Peavey Vypyr VIP 2 Amp

The Vypyr's TransTube engine pretty easily belted out solid approximations of the Classic's tone. There was sparkle to spare in clean mode and a very tube-like sense of pick dynamics, and the amp was very responsive to pickup changes....
