I can't decide between the two, I checked both out at GC and it was so damn loud in there because of some dickwad playing a spider 3 so loud right next to me I couldn't hear much. (This kid didn't even know how to play either) Anyways, I got the chance to try the vox VT30 (brand new model! 22 amp models + tons of other things) and hardly a peavey vypyr (I think i got a hold of the 15w.)

Both create great sound but the vypyr was hard to figure out and really get a feel for in 15 minutes.

I'm going to be playing mainly: Rush, Boston, GnR, possible Zeppelin, metallica, pantera, and some other metal. For the most part though, classic rock.

I'd like to be able to use a exclusive pedal (I.E. sanpera footpedal) but I don't know of a vox one.

Can anyone help me decide???

If it's out of those 2, Vox. Given that you want to play some metal, though, may I suggest a Roland Cube?

The new Vox VT series amps are quite nice. If you want to play heavier stuff and need the amp to take a pedal or two the Vypyr is most definately the way to go. I love my Vypyr, it's a very good amp full of quality useable tones.

I vote for the Vypyr 30 (I've got one and it's great). It does take longer than 15 minutes to figure it out but after you figure out how everything works it's a really good amp. I plan on getting a Sanpera pedal for mine too but they have been delayed again. Now they say 12-26-08 will be the release date.

I'd go for the peavey envoy. 45 watt... power of a 75 watt. Transtube. Although the vyper is transtube it sounds digital as hell. I hate modeling amps.

Unless you get the hybrid version. Then I say go for the hybrid! But I wouldnt go for the solid state vyper.

VOX has the VFS5 foot switch, which allows users to turn effects on/off, switch between presets, and other cool things while playing.

VOX has an awesome lead and an amazing clean sound, while the Vypyr dominates in terms of a rhythm amp. So for your kinds of music, I reccomend the VOX. One thing, though, is that I use the VOX and my friend uses the Vypyr, and they really sound good together.

Vox wins classic rock and even hard rock. Vypyr wins metal.

I've never liked the VT series. Some people love them but it's really an opinion thing. Vyper is better IMO
I hate my sig
