New Amp yay!


Recommended Posts

Just took delivery of my new shiny amp  :D

Peavey vypyr VIP 3


First impressions, very nice, got it for an absolute steal £130 second hand, not a mark on it, some dust but that's it.


Firmware needed updated and got a quick look at the editing process for PC, looks very nice... complicated but heh  :D

The pre-sets are a bit, hmm good but maybe over the top on some effects, lots of reverb and wah when it could have been a bit more subtle, nothing that can't be changed.


The amp itself seems very good, better than I expected, it can handle electric, bass and acoustic guitars as well as violins banjos etc. lol


The power sponge really works, you can attenuate it down to 1 watt and throw a tube screamer on it, sounds really good at low volumes.


It doesn't weigh to much (I needed the wife to bring it upstairs) so it's easily transportable. 


Overall very happy with it   :D

Grats, I was thinking of a vypyr for my first amp but ended up with a Blackstar HT1. I thought 1 watt of power would be really quiet by my god I was wrong. I've no idea how loud that 100w amp is!
