Hey There!
I bought a peavey vypyr 15 last week and its awesome. I have a BOSS DS-1 lying around here and is it possible to use it with the peavey. If i am able to fine a really good clean channel, will it work? And I might buy a MulitFX pedal in the future so will it work well with the peavey? Or will it work better on other SS amps? I played my Boss Ds1 with a guyatone SS amp today at my friends place and it was awesome. So help me out!
Im not financially capable of buying a tube amp!
Thanks!

Are you asking us because you're afraid something will break if you plug it in? Otherwise the obvious answer is try it and let us know how it works. If you have a multifx you should try plugging into the aux input.

pics of the amp or you bought a marshall mg
a bit of advice google how to eq it'l help you
and ya take any amp's clean channel annnnd plug the ds1 in there it wont damage your amp like at all

...... any pedals over the vypyr is a waste of money...... if you REALLY love the amp and want a multi fx then just buy one of the sanpera pedals because everything u'll find in an mfx is already on board.

also, its a digital modeling amp, though it is possible and safe to use a pedal with it, its gonna sound like shit for the most part

2 things.

As a general rule, modellers don't like pedals. But why not start by trying it instead of asking UG?

Secondly, you already have a Peavey Vypyr, why buy a mfx pedal? You've got one built into your amp.

A Sanpera won't work - they only work with the 30W and up models.

The Vypyr sounds way better than the DS-1 on its own.

For all those who don't believe I have a peavey vypyr, I've uploaded a few pictures of em.
OK now the reason I dont care if the DS -1 sucks on it. All i wanna know is if it will take multiFX well because I believe multi effects pedals have more quality as compared to the peavey. I tested a multieffects pedal, the zoom gfx 3 on a crappy stranger amp and it kicked ass! I couldn't compare it with the vypyr I have now. I wont be able to test that pedal on the vypyr because the owner is not here. He moved to some other city which is a little far away.

No, an MFX won't work well with your Vypyr. Mostly because that amp doesn't have an FX loop, but also because modeling amps just don't sound too great with fx. There's too much digital confliction going on.

Ok so when I do get a new amp, which one should i get? Do multiFX pedals work better on tube amps than it does on Solid State amps?

yeah, usually, unless it's a keyboard amp.
And what would your budget be?

Not necessarily. It's not that they "work" better, but tube amps will 90% just straight up sound better. The most important thing with a multi fx though is that you're using an analog amp, whether that be solid state or tube, as long as it doesn't have digital modeling in it, and that that amp has an FX loop. Check both of those things, and the MFX will be able to work to it's potential, as it's designed to.
