My last thread was asking what amp to buy, but I wanna be sure on this one. I'm thinking about the Peavey Vypyr 60. Buuuuuut, i know that some amps work better with some guitars and some amps guive guitars a ****y sound. My question is if this amp http://www.salaomozart.com/store/index.php?pag=product_info&cPath=107_117_135_178&products_id=2974 is going to give a good sound to my Gibson Les Paul Studio Limited Edition (you know what i mean). :C

TL;DR: Will a Gibson Les Paul have a good sound with the Peavey Vypyr 60?

No, it won't. Save up for an amp that will do it justice.

its not gonna make a ****y sound. the Vypyrs are great amps, especially the hybrid models.

Of course 90% of the people here will be on the tube bandwagon and tell you that anything without tubes would suck. True, tube amps are great, but if your not gigging (lots of people are gigging with the SS Vypyrs now,) and want an unbelievable amount of versatility, TRY BEFORE YOU BUY

Those hybrids are not even out yet (60 and 120). Supposedly they were having some kind of issue. Not sure what. I'd read up on them over on peavey's web site in forum section.

To Horlicks point.

Go away tube bandwagon... jeez...

TS, generally a good guitar will sound better on any amp than a bad guitar, but a Gibson through a modeling amp just isn't worth it. Especially because the LP studio isn't even much better than an epiphone LP standard.

you would get a better sound from an epiphone les paul standard and a marshall jcm 800, or any good tube amp...depending on your style.

edit: nvm, I didnt know it was the tube version...

It is a tube modelling amp, and I really think it will sound nice judging by the quality of the SS Vypyrs. You won't get better for 250 euros. BUT as always, try it out with your guitar and see if YOU like it.

it's pretty much tube, although most classify it as hybrid (containing tube & SS circuitry)

There is no "bandwagon" about it. Tube amps in general are better sounding than SS, and almost ALWAYS respond better to changes in dynamics and pick attack.

But if you want a cheap amp, the Vypyrs are the way to go.

Ok, thanks. I'll try it first. ^^

yeah, I asked your location to gauge if there might be places to look for used gear. You will be hard pressed to try one until they come out. Some of us have been waiting about 4 months to try one. I wasn't super impressed with the 2 that I tried (30 and 75) and on one of them we couldn't figure out how to turn off the delay. Lot's of people like them so I'm not going to say they suck until I can spend more time them.

The tube hybrids have 1 preamp tube. The rest is Transtube. 2 power tubes I think on 60 and 4 on 120. Go check out The Only Vypyr Thread too.

yeah, i had the same problem when i played one. It has so many extra effects and features that it seems a bit complicated but as soon as you get the time to go over it and really mess with it, it becomes an awesome amp

I felt the same way at first. I don't know why Peavey has the delay turned on already the first time the amp is turned on. To turn the delay off press either the Stompbox knob or the Effects knob. Either one will put the amp into edit mode. When the amp is in edit mode the mid & high knobs work the delay. Turn the delay down or off then press either the Stompbox knob or the Effects knob (whichever one you pressed before) and that puts the amp back into normal mode. It might sound a little complicated but it's easy after you play with it for a few minutes. They are pretty good after you learn how to operate all the features. Some people try them for 5 minutes and say they suck because they don't know how to operate them. And like the Valve Kings the Vypyrs sound alot better with a speaker upgrade. Peavey needs to stop cheapin' out on their speakers.

My friend plays a Gibson SG into a Vypyr and it sounds pretty good IMO. Go for it.

Its not really a tube bandwagon dude. Theres a reason tube amps sound better. People don't just say that for the hell of it. how many bands tour with tube amps and how many tour with solid state amps? Sure you can name a few that play vettas... but mostly tube amps. Nothing can beat the warm sound of a tube amp. It's natural and tone wise digital just can't mess with it. The vypyr is an alright practice amp but if this guy is asking if he'll have some kindof great tone... the answer is no. Do you want a good practice amp? Then yes. But it's not so much that some amps sound better with different guitars... its all about style and preference.

It's really not so much of a bandwagon, as much as most of us realize that playing a $1500 guitar through a $400 amp is a waste. It's almost as bad as somebody going out with $300 to buy their first setup, and spending $150 on Monster Cables.

OK. Cool Zakk. I'll try that next time I'm there. Of course the GC dude just stood there and scratched his head and started pushing puttons which didn't help. I do remember the Edit button being on the whole time, i couldn't figure out how to turn it off. I think next time i'll ask for the manual.

I had to show a couple of guys at my local music shop how to operate them too.
