Hey im o=looking for a new little pratice amp to buy around 100 bucks. Im not sure whether to get the LIne6 III 15w or the Peavey Vypyr 15w.
Im looking for sound like avenged sevenfold and stuff like that...

My current gear is Epi LP standard, fenderfrontman 15w (the beginner amp that every1 gets to start off), and Metal muff with Overdrive.

So can anyone tell me which one i should get or suggest another one? PLEASE DONT BASH THAT Avenged Sevenfold SUCKS, IDC WHAT YOUR OPINIONS ARE : )

Vypyr 15
/thread

IF you have some more money you should buy the Vypyr 30 + sanpera II footswitch for more options.....
and you dont need the muff if you are buying the vypyr, it has plenty of amp models that blows away the muff........

o ok well i bought the metal muff since the distortion on the frontman sucked n didnt last long. Thanks on the imput, im on peavey.com right now looking at all the vypyr series and they look really promising
#5
the peavy vyper seems to get a good liking compared to the line 6 but you should try both and get the one you like most
#6
i think that your metal muff should suffice until you can afford a non-modeling amp. just my two cents

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

The Vypyr is alot better than the Spider. If you can get the Vypyr 30 it has more effects, it's compatible with the Sanpera pedals Peavey makes for the Vypyr series (except the 15), the 30 is updatable and the 15 is not and the 30 has a 12 inch speaker that sounds better than the 8 inch speaker in the 15.

+1... Not to mention the 8" speaker isn't even a Blue Marvel (not a bad speaker but not too great either), it's some junk they made.

The Vypyrs pretty good, although you might get some buzzy vibrating sound with palm mutes, well mine does.
#10
The Vypyr 15's 8" speaker is pretty lame, but the cab is big enough to easily accommodate a 10". I upgraded mine to a 10". But the 30 is a better deal. I got the 15 for it's small size and light weight.

try em both out and find out for yourself. Your not going to get a non-biased answer regarding spiders on this forum. Spiders tend to distort and the speakers blurp when cranked to high volumes. They also do not take pedals well at all. Not even a eq pedal will work on a spider 3. I have not tried the vyper but most seem to like it and some do not. Either way your getting a 15 watt amp so neither are going to sound all that great. You should save up some more money and buy some mid-range gear.

I'm trying to get a Vypyr 30 myself with a Sanpera I. One thing that isn't always clear is that the Vypyr15 DOESN'T come with stompbox models, only amp and rack effects. As someone else mentioned it doesn't have the MIDI port either, so you can update the software or use a pedal. Get the 30.

^^ I have the 150 and I love it. it sounds really great. but it overheats if you play too long.

guys, the TS is looking for a little 15 watt modeling amp. to practice with. and if he wants a 15 watt amp, then volume may be an issue in his house or apartment. otherwise, anyone would get a higher wattage amp.

I've never used a vypyr, but everyone here seems to love them. But I love line 6 stuff too. I think you'll be happy either way.

Just to comment, higher wattage =/= better tone.

Get the Vypyr. I've got the 15 watter and it sounds great. It has way more amp models than the Spider, more effects (you can run 3 at one time as opposed to 1 on the Spider), and it doesn't sound very digital. The only thing I don't like about it is that you can't use a footswitch with it.
