What's up UG. I bought a Peavey Vypyr 75 a couple days ago and I've been playing it half the time since. It's a really sweet amp, but I think it might be too big for me. It's my second amp, my first being a (dare I say it) Spider 3 15 . I'm mostly a bedroom player and sometimes I jam with a couple buddies. What I'm wondering is how does the Vypyr 30 compare to the 75? Would it be worth it to send back the 75 and order a 30?
Pffft, who cares?
Drop Z is where it's at.

In what way is it to big? Taking up to much room, or just too loud? Cause if it's too loud, just try playing quieter?

It doesn't actually take up too much space, but the loudest I've played it is barely over 1.

Well, like said before, if you are playing with a drummer, the 75w will be much better.

But if you are having trouble with volume and you are barely turning the thing up, then why not consider a lower wattage tube amp?

But that would depend on a few things, whether or not you want a bunch of effects, or multiple channels.

Otherwise, I would say jump all over the JCA20c, they are on sale on MF for only 300usd

i'd say keep the 75. the 30 is still VERY loud (i can barely play with it over 1) and the 75 has more features. plus, if u play with a drummer, the 75 might be better

No, This is a very excellent amp. Just invest in a pair of good headphones if its too loud for bedroom use :p

Doesn't the 75W have the power sponge feature?

Yea I just feel like it's useless to have an amp that goes to 13 and only play on 1.

Why? You still use most of the features of the amp.

Eh, I think I'm just gonna keep the 75. Who knows, maybe I'll even find a drummer to jam with.

The difference in power (30 vs 75 watts) is very small. Best case you are looking at around a 4 decibel difference in output. That isn't very much. So if the only reason you were going to trade amplifiers was power output, I personally would just keep the 75

Eh, between the headphone jack and the powersponge, surely you shouldn't have that tough of a time managing its volume.

If it was me I would keep it. Heck, I play my DSL 100 in the house a lot, volume usually around 4 - 6. Can't do that when other people are around though.

Do you have a wireless system/reaaaaly long cable?

My ears start to explode around 3-4 with my amp.

I have a couple of 20ft cables, so I can stretch a long ways. Ya, if I was in the room, my ears would explode. I have to use ear plugs sometimes too.

It doesn’t actually do enough to make the big amps practice friendly. It’s not really surprising—Peavy doesn’t seem like the kind of company that hires anybody who understands what “low volume” actually means

Well, I guess I'm not the only one with this... Problem? It really is a cool amp with all the stompboxes and effects built right in. Especially as an upgrade from a Spider.
