I have $300 and I'm going to get myself a Vypyr soon, and I was wondering if I should get a 30W or 75W. If I get the 75W, I get the benefit of volume, and it has a USB port for inexpensive recording. But, then I realized that if I get the 30W I would have enough money for the footswitch/volume pedal. So, I've got a little dilemma for myself. What should I buy?...?

ummm do you plan on doing any recording? if not then go with the 30

You'd get the benefit of volume, but you'd lose the benefit of hearing, using all 75 watts. That number is impractical for almost anybody.

... With a tube preamp... Probably doesn't do much to the volume, though.

I've got a 50W Princeton Chorus and I don't put it past 2 for practice, never past 6 in a band setting. 30W is plenty. If you like the sound, go for it.

The Vypyr 60w are the tube preamp ones.

I was checking out a Viper today, the 60 watt version. I think it's a great amp and I'll probably buy it, but I'd like to know if there's anyone here who can tell me if you can change the effect patches via either the midi input or the USB port. No one at the music shop could tell me...

Let me clarify...when I said "via midi input" I meant as with using an external midi sequencer instead of the optional foot pedal.

they dont have a tube preamp and if they did it wouldnt do anything anyway....

The V-60 has tubes in both - 12AX7 for the pre-amp and 6L6's in the power section...
makes for a sweet sound....

Just keep saving your money man and get something better. The Vyper's don't really sound all that great. They aren't that much better than the line6, which means they kinda suck.

Volume shouldn't be an issue. The 30 is louder than you might think. If you're gonna record the 75 would probably be better for you. Play both of them and see what you think.

In my experience, the 75 is less annoyingly middy than the 30. Plus, because the speaker cab is damned big, I could probably close the back and get one hell of a bass response.

...No. Get out. The Spider is really not worth getting in any form. The Vypyr is the SAME price, and they sound THAT much better.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Get the 30. You're not going to probably ever need to crank it that loud anyway. Keep in mind if you're planning on gigging with it that you can get it mic'd. The footswitch will be much more beneficial in my opinion.
