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) 3 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 3 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 in tuner helps you keep in tune with a quick glance at your amp. The Vypyr VIP 3 goes into new territory by offering instrument models. Turn your electric guitar into an acoustic, a 12-string, a resonator, a 7-string, a bass, a 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 3 modeling amp also acts as its own computer audio interface, with a built-in, studio-quality USB 3.0 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.

nice amp

love it best amp for the price out there

Great Amp

This amp is much much better sounding than I thought it would be. Great tone and feel and has lots of effects and amp models. And for $299, you can't beat the value. I think I could have gone with the 40 or 60 amp version but too late now. Great all around deal!

Great amp

I have used this amp almost daily for three years and still love it. I have programmed my banks by what I will play. I have only had one issue with the preset knob. For some reason the repair shop and Peavey could not get the right part for it but after month got it back and good as new. I mainly play in church now and have programmed my first 20 presets for covering the Contemporary Christian music from Casting Crowns to Third day for both electric and acoustic guitar. Then my next 60 patches are for classic rock and rock from Boston to Def Leppard. I have let other guitar players at church try both my electric and acoustic patches with their guitars and they were really impressed with the sound coming out of the amp. One guy was so impressed he went and bought his own VIP3 and loves it. I have tried the new Vypyr Pro 100 and it was pretty good but they do not have any acoustic amp models anymore which is why I am not considering buying it. To me this a great amp to use for church worship as if you play both electric and acoustic you can use a/b pedal to plug both guitars in and switch to the preset for which guitar you are using. The trans tube technology in these amps is awesome and they do sound and play similar to a tube amp. The only negative things about this amps are no line out(not sure why Peavey did not include one) and the cabinet quality is not the greatest plus the plastic amp corners they use are a joke. If you looking for amp to cover main styles of music and the ability to play both acoustic and electric guitars then this is the one to have. To me this amp is a steal at $300.

Super Amp!

This amp is fantastic! It has grteat sounds and plenty of power for what I need (small performances). The name Peavey has been around for a long time for a good reason...
