Hey, I currently have a Peavey Vypyr 15W, which I have no plans of getting rid of. I also have a Roland Micro Cube, which I use to play through DI Boxes at my church. I Don't gig anywhere else, and that isn't any factor of what I should buy right now.

Im looking for something more versatile, and saw the Digitech Pedal. Is that any good? And can I play it directly through a cab? I also thought of a Blackstar HT-1, and buying a couple pedals to go with it, but not sure.

You cannot play the RP255 into a cab. You need some kind of amp. The lastest RP multifx are very good.

Would the RP255 sound good out of my Peavey Vypyr? Or would it be worth getting a small (1 to 5W) tube amp with only volume control?

Yes it would be worth getting a 5 watt tube amp. You can try it with the Vypyr but I don't think it will be great. You could try using a direct amp (no modeling) and then stick to stompboxes for distortion, while using a clean channel on the Vypyr. Or plugging into the aux in of the Vypyr.

Is Peavey Vypyr a modelling amp? Multi-effects and moddeling amps don't work well together. Well... at least my RP355 and Spider 3 sure seem to hate each-other.

A tube amp and individual stompboxes will surely give you a good tone.

          I have had the RP255 since xmas, and i really like it, i eater play it through my home stereo speakers which are mission M32i's. or my Krank rev Jr 20w. through my M32i's it sounds really nice, on any of the settings be in clean, distorted or crazy FXs. but though my amp other then the reverb, delay, flange etc... it sounds like arse, the distortions are not very good IMO, when played though a amp on the clean settings.

          I also use it for recording you can have a listen here.

          I run my RP into a tube amp that's pretty bright. I select the DI (Direct) on the amp models and use the RP stompboxes for distortion. It sounds great.

          Well, Kustom Defender 5H Head looks nice (and cheap ;P). If I get that with a 1x12 cab would I be looking at a nice setup for home as well? Or is this little amp a little too cheap? :/

          Also why dont you sell the two practice amps you already have, then with that money and your saved cash buy a 2nd hand Fender HRD or Blues Jnr? they would take your POD/RP brilliantly as well as sound great on their own.

          If the 255 is anything like the 250 it kind of sucks. I have the RP250 and don't care for the digitally sounding tones at all, at least for overdrive/distortion.

          Yeah the HD POD is way out of my price range... and yeah I'm ok with "digital" sounding stuff, as long as its not absolutely HORRIBLE, and I know it isnt. As long as it will sound as good or better than my Peavey Vypyr I will be more than happy.
