I play music such as Avenged Sevenfold,System Of A Down and Green Day and will only be using the amp for home practice but I like a wide range of different sounds so will the 30 watt be enough or should I save some more money to get the 75 watt?

There's barely any difference in between the both, but the 75 has a USB out, and a power sponge. If you're just practicing at home, the extra 45 watts and the USB are not worth it. Go with the 30.

I currently use the 75 for home use and i love it, the power sponge gives it that turned up sound without actually being turned up.
And the USB makes it easy to record to your PC.

But if you don't need these things then you're probably better off with the 30

I'd say just get the 30. If you really need to record with it, you can just use the headphone output.

I have the vypyr 15 and it is PLENTY loud for bedroom practicing. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of the 30 or the 75, but for $100 bucks you can't go wrong

This. It's what I'm doing at the minute.
Though, if you're recording, I would recommend getting another way to do so. I will be hopefully fairly soon.

Stick with the 30. I honestly have no idea why you'd want a built in attenuator on a solid state amp...

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

In case you're too lazy to turn the volume down

I have the 15 as well but the extra stompbox selection and 12" speaker on the 30 make it worth the extra hundred. Also the 15 can't be updated and IIRC there was an update for the other models that corrected some issues with an overly agressive noise gate.

I have the 75 because I need it to compete with a drummer at practice, but the 30 is an absolutely incredible value, especially when you go used. You will be extremely hard pressed to find a better practice amp for ~$150.

if its just being used as a home practice, then get a 30 watt.
if you're going to use it as home practice, band, or gigs, get a 60 watt tube one.

I don't think you'd be able to update the 30 either surely since it has no usb?
Update via midi. Quote from the update instructions....

MIDI is not generally the best format for transferring large
firmware files, but in order to enable our VYPYR 30 customers to update their amp, we chose to use MIDI across the board.

I'm thinking about getting the 30W Vypyr for home practice (my microcube's distortion really doesn't cut it, even though the cleans are brilliant on it). Is the distortion good for both heavy and classic metal, and would you be able to notice a pickup change through it?
