Peavey Vypyr 15W OR Line 6 Spider IV 15W

I know quite a lot about the Vypyr but nothing at all about Line 6... except everyone seems to hate them :/

Just wanted to know which is best because they are around the same price.
Will be used as a practice amp for metalcore... but also Rockschool grade pieces.

i have both the vypyr and the line 6 and the vypyr is WAY better

the line 6 distortion is horrible

Honestly I wouldn't get either, I think with a little work you could find something better.

I've used a Vyper once and it was okay, and (Well, this may seem a little biased) I still seem to find that a Roland Cube is the best modeling amp, in terms of distortion.

Just don't get the Spider, distortions are terribly digital, very bland.

A Vyper would be an okay choice though.

Okay - how about the Roland Cube 15X?

How does that compare to the others? It's basically the same price.
#7
I actually feel the Vypers are weak in the gain/distortion area. And honestly, both sound very digital and that's just because it's the nature of a modeling amp. Though I've never tried a Roland cube, which I've heard nothing but good reviews about.

Having played both, the Vypyr is simply MUCH better than the Spider. More amp models, more effects, more effects at once, more processing power, MUCH better (as in 100x better) distortion, the list goes on. Get the Vypyr.

Unless you are playing live, don't listen to the elitists who say you need a tube amp. You don't, especially when the Vypyr emulates a tube amp so closely, AND at low volumes (something a tube amp can't do without ridiculously low wattage)

see: 6505 model on the Vypyr. It sounds extremely close to the real thing thanks to Peavey's trans-tube technology, and it's just one of the 24 amp models on an amp that costs 100-200 dollars rather than 1000-1800 dollars.

Have fun with your Vypyr!

I said in terms of distortion for a reason :P

Vox's are nice.

I own a vypyr 60 and love it, it's my main gig amp now. Put the vl502 in the closet for now

The Line 6 isn't as bad as people make out... I think they both beat the Roland hands-down on uber br00talz distortion, but different people prefer different things. Play them both and see which you prefer.

Nah, a Vetta will blow it out of the water.

But TS, out of those two I'd go for the Vypyr.

A Vetta or a Flextone.


And yes, the Vypyr kicks the Spider's ass eight ways to next sunday.

I would choose a Cube over both the Vypr, Spider and ADVT's in every wattage BUT the 15 ones. I don't know if the 15X is any different from the old 15's but the old ones didn't have the modelling which made them so good.

Imo if you can get a Cube 30.

Well, it's technically only a preamp so......

Shhh... Don't tell anyone!

It still owns the Valvetronix. Despite the fact that it costs almost 10x more...
