Should I upgrade from my Spider III 15 to the Vypyr 30 as a practice amp? Or just wait for a nicer amp?

Honestly its up to you. It really depends on how much you like what you have and why you are looking to upgrade. If you really hate your current amp and you don't have a lot of money you can sell your spider and buy one of these, but in the long run you will probably want something better.

Well I'm not a hybrid expert but 1 power tube isn't going to do all that much imo. We'll see when they come out. Similar hybrids I hear it adds a bit of color to the sound. I doubt the 120 for example is strictly running off 1 power tube. There has to be some solid state power dump i would thingk but wtf do i know.

Hard to guess on what power tube it will be. The Valvekings for example use whatever so you get what you get. Most get Ruby tubes I believe. 2 of them.

Again, I doubt swapping one power tube on one of these amps would do much but idk. I am curious about the amp settings and the headphone and built in tuner. Seems like it could work for a lot of people. If you are wanting to get a Spider this may be a great alternative. As long as they displace MGs and Ravens I'm happy.

I think I will get one myself.
I believe 75watter seems better to me cause of the usb interface and the power sponge.
What would you do if you wanted a bedroom amp and lots of gain? Get the 75 watter with the attenuator? Or the 30 watter and low volumes?
Which one will have better sound at lower volumes?

They are both going to sound the same at a lower volumes.

With solid state amps you don't need to 'drive' the tubes to get that creamy sound, so that means you don't turn it up to make it sound better. The only thing the 75 watt is going to give you is it will be able to go louder without starting to clip.

I would go with the 30 and get the Sanpera I or II to play around with the looper and ease of using effects. It's really up to you though, I don't know how important the usb interface is to you, but the direct line out works fine for me(I started using a splitter so I can send a signal to the computer and use my headphones as a monitor so I don't have to deal with the delay)

Edit:
Well after looking I think I was wrong to assume these acted like regular SS amps. I still don't fully understand the need for a power sponge these... but hey maybe it does sound better cranked, mine sure doesn't...

I wish I knew more about the technology. Take what I say with a grain of salt, because I am just getting into this Transtube stuff. Good luck with the amp though

I played the 75 watt at GC today and I liked it a lot. No, not perfect, but it was good. Distortion was better than the cleans IMO. A bit confusing, however. But the pitch shifter effect made everything I played sound like 2 harmonized guitars. It was sweet.

Just curious, What did you find to be confusing?

Out of the box I had the controls figured out in a few minutes, but then again that was in the comfort of my home not a noisy guitar shop.

I think I'll get the Vypyr, and then in a couple years start saving for my dream amp

(Dsl 401 or Screamer 50)

Well, I was in an insulated room so the people at the store weren't bothering me :P

Anyway, it was just the push-pull knob stuff and how the high/mid/low controls seemed to add effects. I'm sure I could figure it out with a manual, or with more time. I only had a half hour with it. Not to mention, I've been feeling a little under-the-weather today and so my brain's a little slow today too. Been exhausted all day.

Ah, well when you click the "effect" knob it goes to edit mode, Pre and Low are used for parameter 1 and 2 of the effect, Mid and High are for Delay Controls, and Post is used for reverb. Click the "Effect" knob again to return to the eq.

I hear you though, its hard to concentrate on tweaking an amp when you don't feel well. I was just curious.

there could be other advantages to having the USB interface besides direct recording and bypassing sound card latencies. From what I hear, they will also be releasing firmware updates to the modeling, and incorporating some additional functionality with Reaper. I don't know if that would work without the USB interface.

Yeah, the cold is a bitch. Plus it's been storming all day (we have that tropical storm Fay here in Florida).
