Hello. Tonight I am heading down to Guitar Center to trade in my dreaded Spider III 15 Watt for a new practice amp.

Which one is better, a Vypyr 15 or a Cube 15?

The Vypyr has a lot of effects (Most of which I don't need) and has gain knobs, yet the Cube has less effects but has distortion/overdrive models that would be easier to control.

Which one is generally better and more versatile?

*If you are going to suggest something else, keep it at $100, I don't have any more money I can spend, I need this amp asap.

If you're going the GC tonight, just play them both and decide for yourself...

most around here seem to prefer the vypyr.. doesn't matter. use your own ears.

One advantage of the Vypyr is that it's easy to upgrade the speaker to a 10". I did with mine and there's plenty of room in the cab. It's a great little amp. Never played the Cube.

The Cube 15 has nearly no effects. The Vypyr hands down on this one. You get more for your money.

+1, but the Vypyr 30 is more useful IMO. It has a 12" speaker, can be updated and can be controlled by a sanpera. It also has stompboxes!

The stompboxes suck, I only ever use fuzz and that is rarely, the tubescreamer sounds terrible and the Vypyr 15 has the tubescream on effects anyway.

Epiphone Les Paul Standard
Peavey Vypyr 30
DW Collector's 3 pc drums
Mapex Black panther snare
Sabian AAX/Zildjian K cymbals.

I only use a few of them but i use them 'cause they tend to be subtler than the rack effects.

I say Vypyr, but try them before you choose anything.

I bought the Vypyr, and love it.

Any tones you guys found on it that you want to tell me about?
