Dear UG,

I went to GC today and tried out the Peavey Vypyr 15.
.
.
.
It was amazing. I couldn't believe it, you guys were right. I am incredibly sorry.

I especially like it on the Dual Rectifier channel, with the tube screamer effect on.

I am deeply sorry, and am going to pick this amp up shortly.

Love,
Big Xave.

P.S. Or should I hold out for the 30, that way its footswitch compatable?

Might as well get the 30 if you think you'd use it later...

I'd say save a bit more and get the 30.

get the 30 - bigger speaker so it sounds better, and the footswitch is really cool

well i have a 30 and it freaking loud i over power my drummer on 4

So the 75 isnt necessary. I've also played live with it which i dont recommend just becasue it is suppose to be a practice amp but its not to bad. Played 3 shows in 100 degree weather plus all the band practice in a garage that is around 90 degrees

It really good amp

I say hold out for a 30 incase you have money trouble later and have to wait for ever for a tube amp. Plus the pedal comes in handy and the 15 cant use the pedal.

The 15 actually can take a Sanpera footswitch, but it needs to be modded to do so.

Didn't you just get $600 or something? Why do you need to "hold out" for the 30 then? For that kind of money you could get the 60W tube version with almost enough money leftover to get a Sanpera II (In which case you could just buy the amp used).
#15
we just took in a nice used palomino v32 with your name on it dood. boost it with a bad monkey if you want, but its a nice beast as is.

do. not. delay...

cheeeeeeeeeeep!!!!!!!!!

yer in michigan, no taxes, no shipping...

if you make a thead asking about it, the deal is void.

It better be a tube 60 lol. Hell my Ampeg was $300 and its awesome (imo). Down the road it's going to be an amazing backup.

As for the v32, if TS likes the tones out of it, it would be a much better buy IMO. Especially cranked (but it sounds good at lower volumes too) it's going to do it's tone way better then the Vypyr.

Do you HAS to go new?

One thing I've learned from UG is that you can buy a bitchin' amp in the US on the used market. The Vypers are ok but if I had $600 in my skyrocket I'd be looking elsewhere.

Like hookers and cocaine?

lolno, seriously I would have my 5150/XXX if I had 6 billz. Still not sure if I want to go dark or bright. I like percussive tones, but I need a darker percussive tone?

Is that even possible?

Yeah amps are expensive here too. But if somebody sat say a Mesa 50 cal next to a Vyper and said you can have either for the same price, how bad would the Mesa have to be beat up before you'd choose the Vyper? It'd have to actually have flames leaping out the back threatening to start a bushfire before I would.

I'd love a flame-spouting Dual Rectifier, that would be seriously br00t4lz.
But I guess you Aussies don't like bushfires?

As I understand it bushfires are fairly frequent and nasty in Australia, but I don't know of any specific fires.

Spending your $600 on a vypyr=epic fail

It was amazing.


who the hell told you that?


and yea man, for 600 dollars, you could be looking at something alot better. i found a used laney vh100r for 650(retail for 1300), 100 watt, tube head, two channels, and itll probably get most of the tones a damn modeling amp can. point is, look used and you could probably find a pretty nice tube amp that will beat a vypyr any day. and if rectifier is what you like, i almost bought a used single rec for like 700 until someone beat me to it. youd only have to save 100 more dollars, plus if you find something used at GC, you can trade in even like a shitty pedal or something and get 15% off.


EDIT: coming from someone who also almost bought the vypyr tube, didnt, and never looked back. but yea like said above, if you like the sound that much, go for it, my advice is just look around ALOT, im just trying to help ya get something better for the price.

Nobody recommended him a vypyr for this budget...all his threads have had a budget of $200 or so...and at one point, hypothetically, $400. I can't keep up...but I'm sure just about every amp new or used in his budget was recommended at least once.

Quote by rocknrolldude43


So I guess that means everyone who's recommending the Vypyr in this thread must be idiots too, right?

Sure, better amps can be had for the price (used, mind you), but since the TS likes the sounds the Vypyr gives him, I see no reason why he shouldn't get it, even with $600 (hey, at least it's leagues better than the Spider and MG, right?). Furthermore, I doubt he'd want to be carrying around a shitload of pedals in the long run.

Please take your anti-Vypyr bullshit elsewhere and let the TS get whatever the **** he wants.

WTF is the point of posting on a forum if you don't want people to comment?
