I'm sure there is a thread in here somewhere involving these two amps.

I know a lot of you will say tube amp all the way, but that's not what I want. So I just wanna see ppls opinions on these two amps. I'm not sure wich one to get. I am an intermediate guitar player. No I don't plan on doing any serious gigging either. My music is more a hobby then anything. Plus I do want to pick up the pedal for either of these amps.

Just having a hard time deciding which one to get.

Peavey, I own the same amp you're talking about and I just got done practicing with my band. It has a good tone, plenty of built in effects, and I've had it over 2 years and it hasn't let me down yet.

Get a Vypyr tube 60. Best option.

I own a Line 6 III, and it's been good to me thus far. I'd say get a four, but I've never actually used a Peavey.

What's your style of music? My style ranges from Alice in Chains to more heavy like FFDP.

I've played both at different wattages, and the Peavy will give you better quality tone? But you have to worry replacing tubes, letting tubes warm up, whatever. While a Line 6 is less quality tone, but a wider variety of tone in a no-tubes package.

If you're a 1st or 2nd year guitarist, you wont hear the difference in quality anyway so, I'd go with the Line 6
How many guitar players does it take to change a light bulb?

Twelve. One to change the bulb and eleven to say they could do it better.

They're both solid state modeling amps?

Vypyr. 75% percent of the people that get a Spider regret not getting something better, like the Peavey.

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

I play a variety, a lot of clean stuff, Classic Rock such as Zeppelin, Cream, etc. and Progressive Metal. Pretty much everything, and I can always find a tone that works.

No ego-inflating quotes nor stupidly long signatures to be found here.

My vote would go to the Vypyr as well.


And seriosly, a Vypyr 60 is a great option, and you don't really need to worry about the tubes hardly at all, and they will make a difference. God forbid you let the tubes warm up for 60 seconds.

I've never yet found a Line 6 modeller I actually like as they all just sound far too digital and artificial. The Spider Valve was better but still far from ideal. The Vypyrs may not have the tone of a full valve amp but I was certainly impressed by what they could do. I'd agree that the Vypyr 60 hybrid amp would be a great choice instead of the 75w version unless you can't stretch that far but the 75w is still very good. To be honest though, if you're not really gigging, you might as well just get the Vypyr 30w and save some money as even that's bloody loud.

Vypyr is probably better. i have heard stuff like the line 6 effects sound really digital.
