With the Vypyr you won't need the DS-1 at all. They're god-awful stock pedals anyway. Kurt's DS-1 was modded to hell and back and it was also a proper vintage one, which were quite good. The $50 difference in price is peanuts for the difference in quality. The Vypyr Tubes are probably the best entry level modellers out there.


Modellers take most pedals fine, but you have to use them smartly. They hate overdrives and boosts, for instance, though you wouldn't need one since you have access to higher gain models anyway. I had no problems running fuzzes or distortions through my old VT15, but it hated ODs, and you have to run all pedals on the clean channel.

With the vypyr you can use the Sanpera I and II pedals, they give you a lot of space for more presets, give you one or two expression pedals and lets you access the looper function.
But i think buying one now will surpass your budget? :question:
Sanpera II new is 230 ( http://www.guitarcenter.com/Peavey-...XGP&cagpspn=pla ), and about 183 used ( http://www.musiciansfriend.com/ampl...?condition=used ).

These wont work with the smaller 15W vypyr

Get the Peavey Vypyr Tube 60.
it will sound better than any other amp you've listed so far, combined.

That Tele is a good choice as well. I quite like it. You can also swap the pickups later on.

Do yourself a favor and skip the DS-1. Pedals will not work well with the Vypyr amp, I have experience.

If you can't afford the Peavey Sanpera 2 footswitch then go for the Sanpera 1. it will let you switch between effects and clean/distortion.

To answer your question about pickups:

Single Coil pickups have one coil, or magnet with a wire around it. Properties of these include:
-thinner sound
-don't handle high gain very well
-they have a sort of "spanky" sound
-They emit more static noise than humbuckers (hence the name hum-bucker)

Humbuckers, or Humbucking pickups have two magnets wound together. this eliminates a lot of static noise. Some properties include:
-fatter sound
-less "spank"
-handle high gain (distortion) much better than single coils
-far less noise

hope that helps.

oh, a quick guideline to grunge players and their tones:
Nirvana - high gain, lower midrange (but not scooped), more bass, more treble, humbuckers
Pearl Jam - lower gain, more a classic rock-y tone, medium treble, medium-high midrange, lower or medium bass, and singlecoils for lead (Mike McCready) and humcuckers for rhythm (Stone Gossard)
Alice in Chains - high gain, medium midrange, more treble, medium bass, humcuckers
Soundgarden - Medium/high gain (depends on the song), higher treble, medium mids, and medium to lower bass, humcuckers

alrightt cool thanks guys glad I came to these forums

I will be getting that telecaster!!

and I might get the peavy vypyr tube 60 if I could if im not pushing on the price but if not sooner or later I will get that amp because honestly seen some reviews looks AWESOME! and seems I could crank it

but if not I might just get the peavey vypyr 15w 1x8 as a temporary amp and probably will get the tube amp in like a month or two

I will take other suggestions if anyone else has any other suggestions

but so far I will be getting the tele and either the 15w vypyr or the 60w amp if I could get away with the price

AND THANKS ALOT for the settings if I want to play nirvana alice in chains that will help ALOT thanks man!!!

Don't waste money on the 15w Vypyr if you plan to upgrade man. You will lose money that way.

Get an AXL gigbag. It's what I have for my Cort and it's a decent bag for pretty cheap too. I use it because it's easier to transport like that (it fits between my drummers legs) when I'm driving us to band practices/gigs.

Modelers have everything built inside. They have all the distortion sounds and effects you need. They are designed not to need any pedals. Vypyrs even have modeled distortion pedals built in. I bet you'll prefer the built in distortion sounds of Vypyr to the sound you are getting with DS1. I know it's cool to have a pedal but it's not necessary and you'll notice that it might be a waste of money.

That's assuming he has a significant ammount of money to begin with. Also I stand by my fender strat/old line 6 recomendation. They completly slay the viper in every concievable way.

uh.

the flextone is on par.

And you want him to get a strat? For grunge, mainly nirvana? no. He also says he prefers the Tele shape.

the peavey bandit will do the deed, but really dude you're throwing your money away. I understand finding a job at 15 is difficult (i did it last year) but you are going to lose money if you buy an amp and then the Vypyr Tube 60.

If anything, just ask for the guitar and then the rest of the money in cash, mow a lawn of two and buy the Tube 60.
it does not make sense to throw your money away, however eager you may be to get a new amp.

yes you can order used items from guitar center and have them shipped to you.

Don't get the Fender Frontman, Peavey Bandit, or Marshall MG (not that u have mentioned it, but it's a popular amp in your price range). Either Vypyr is a good choice, though the others are right when they want you to get the tube version. Just save up and get it, then work on your skill and be assured that you have an amp you won't outgrow.

Asking about Fender vs Peavey is pointless. A Frontman isn't really a Fender, it's a cheap crappy solid state Chinese amp that just happens to have a Fender badge.

You have to talk about particular amps, not brands. Peavey make all sorts of amps, some suitable for grunge, some not. Same with Fender.

Get the Vyper Tube 60. Stop looking at Frontmans, they're complete crap.
