Hey guys! Im just a beginner and im planning to get a new amp! I have a yamaha GA-15 amp. I dont gig very often! My first gig is coming up, on our school talents day. So if i get the peavey will i be able to connect the vypyr to the school amp? How do you guys gig if you dont have a processor?? Can electricians make A line out jack or somethin on the amp?? Those who own the amp or who know about the amp please help me! I have 1 more problem, i went to the local store to test the peavey Vypyr 15 with my yamaha eg 112c. The distortion was good, but i couldnt get the metal sound. Is this because of my guitar?? But then many people who have fender squire which sounds the same as yamaha get the metal sound. And it didnt sound as good as i heard on youtube.

yes its because of your guitar also there are tonnes of amp models in the vypyr you just cant plug your guitar in the vypyr select a twin reverb model and expect chugs out of it

aah fellow indian
no the electricians cant do that
and you gotta place the mic near the amps speaker and connect it to the p.a known as micing up

wait - didn't I just answer this in another thread? Was that you?


I almost reported you but i'm in a good mood. Don't create multiple threads on the same topic.


Hey dude he misspelled peavey in this thread. So he must have thought that people wouldn't reply or something.

How do we gig without a processor? The same way we did before processors were invented - you stick a mic in front of the amp. Even if you have a large amp it's wise to mike it up so the sound guy has some control over how loud you are in the mix.

Sorry i didnt do it on purpose. I had s spelling mistake in the title! so i created another 1. I cant figure out how to delete a post.
#11
Can you connect 40 watt stereo speakers on to the peavey through the microphone jack???
And if u mic up the amp wont the sound from the drums and all the sound near the amp play through the speakers??
#12
No.
Instrument mikes are close field mics. You stick them right up against the speaker grill. Not much else gets into them. Nothing that matters anyway.

You said from the microphone jack. You add speakers by plugging them into the extension speaker output on the back. It won't sound very good through stereo speakers anyway, even if they did all match up impedance-wise. Miking it up is the easiest and best solution. Let the PA do all the work.

thanks! Is there any problem if you turn up the volume really high on the peavey?? It starts vibrating!
#16
You guys are so lucky! everythings cheaper in U.S!! Its only 100$ in U.S. That is 4500 Indian rupees. Over here it costs 8 thousand rupees!
#17
Hey Guys! I played the peavey in the store here, and the clean volume very low! I put on maximum but still there wasnt much volume
#18
That's why you have to stick a mic in front of it.

Woah not loud enough? The Vypyr 15 is very loud, even when the volume is at 2! I'm sure it would be loud enough.

A Vyper 15 is very loud? Compared to what? A flea fart?

your vypyr may sound loud with the volume at 2 in your bedroom but that's probably because it's a small room. things sound a lot louder in smaller rooms than they really are.

the only way is to mic it up and let the PA do the work, because i doubt it'll cut through un-miked - imo this is less than optimal but it'll do the job..

the vypyr is pretty noisy when its in clean, it produces a zzzz sound. So when you mic it up wont that sound come out through the speakers?? Anyway to remove this noise without a noise suppressor

It should be plenty loud for bedroom playing.

There's usually always going to be a little noise coming from the amp. A noise gate might help. Is it really that annoying?

Not sure I agree with that. On some perhaps, but a good amp will be near silent by itself. (There may be exceptions, I've not tested it on every decent amp in existence, but it's been my experience as a general rule...)

Iicr, I read that there was a built in noise gate on the vypry. I'll check out the manual.

Yeah, a lot of people are having the same problem as you; not being able to get rid of the fizzyness or adjust the automatic noise gate. There might be updates that you could install to get rid of the noise.

Does Peavey Sound good with pedals?? How does it sound with boss ds 1?
#33
The peavey is a modeling amp so it probably wont take the ds1 too well. Try it.

A noisegate wont help unless its in the loop.
Idk if the vypyr 15 has a loop.

It's how it's always been done. Have a look at photos of any big professional gig. What do you see in front of the guitarist's cabinet? A microphone. If it's good enough for every professional guitarist on the planet don't you think it may work for you too?
The smallest amp I've ever gigged with is a 60W'er and I still always mike up the amp so the sound guy can have some control over my levels in the Front Of House mix. It's just how you do it.
