Hey I need some help, so right now i own a Peavey Vypyr 60w w/ tubes. Its pretty good... but too powerful for my house, i always have the volume turned to like 1, plus i dont think i need all the effects and stuff. So, I need some suggestions on a new amp ( and maybe some pedals), I play alot of metal ( BMTH, Asking Alexandria, Miss May I, Job For A Cowboy) but I also like to just jam around with some light distortion or a good clean sound. So what should I get?!?! Thanks!

You could get a small practice amp for home, but I would not suggest selling your current amp. It's power will be very useful with a band. And if you are perfectly happy with the Vypyr, you don't have to use the effects. They're optional.

what's your budget? where on earth are you? markets vary. read the stickied thread by 311zosovhjh? this will get more productive for you.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

I'd say keep the amp and get something along the lines of a metal muff to play on the clean channel.

Don't think they were thinking logically when they suggested a pedal for a modeling amp.

Actually.... what do you want TS? Do you want a downgrade of power? In which case I'd just suggest you lower the channel volume.

Another tube amp won't really help much, the Blackstar HT5 will probably half your volume, but since you're already on 1, that won't help much.

Marshall MS2.

It would be quieter...
It's an opinion. It's subjective. And I'm right, anyway.

TS, you're not going to get a better amp for the metal that you like to play that sounds better or is any quieter than the Vypyr. On top of that, unlike other tube amps commonly used for metal, the Vypyr actually can get very quiet, and sounds good at extremely low volumes.

Keep the Vypyr. Better to have volume/headroom and not need it than need/want it and not have it.

What's with all the metal muff suggestions lately? It's not a very good pedal.

Well my other thought was one of these...

I first sam them in the mid 1990s. Nearly bought one for novelty value. Plus I chug down a fair few Marly reds a day.

hah. my uncle's got one of those.

anyways, I'd get a 15 or 30 watt Vypyr or something. But keep your current amp if you ever plan on being in a band. 60 watts will reach over the drums easy (my 65 does.)

I can vouch for the 15 watt vypyr being great. But it's oddly light.

Heh.. modeling amps..
#17
this is probably a pathetic question since its my amp... but can ANY pedal work with my amp?? i tried using one pedal and it would not work. I didnt know if the onboard effects would mess with it or what? Thanks again... haha
#18
all pedals should work with your amp.

just set it to a clean setting with no effects and use the pedals.

what pedal didn't work? did it have power? were you plugged into it?

what's the problem?

okay thanks, thats what i figured. it was a danelectro chorus pedal i had laying around, i had a 9V powering it, maybe it was a bad battery, and haha yeah i was plugged in im not that bad haha

hey well i had to ask.

They can work, they just won't sound so good.
