I currently have a Vox VT40+ and really do not like it at all. Before that I had a Crate VFX that sounded great.

In the $400 price range, is a Peavey Vypyr Tube 60 a good choice? Does it have a tube sound? (My old Crate VFX had tube sound, but the Vox doesnt at all)

I cant find anywhere to test the Vypyr 60 out so I resorted to asking online...

I play mostly alternative/rock/some metal.

Thanks for any help

it seems that its hard to get a peavey vypyr tube 60, unless you use like ebay or something. you can get a used one for about $380. im also looking to get one in a week or two.

It's one heck of an amp. I absolutely love mine. I have a Vox AD30VT-XL, which I pulled out the other day, and it doesn't hold a candle to the Vypyr. I got mine (with the Sanpera II) for $350, so I'm sure you can find one sub-$400.

Get the Vypyr. You won't regret it.

thanks, im reading about it everywhere and it looks really great for what i need.... I've seen them cheap on craigslist but they sell right away.

I might just end up buying it new. The one thing that sucks is the pedal for it costs another $100+. Looks really cool to have.

You may just have to troll CL for a while. If you can get the amp cheaper, then you've got a foot up on getting the pedal (which, by the way, is almost useless to me--I only use mine once a week for band practice). Try searching areas other than the one your in. For example, I live in the Space Coast, but I had to search north of Orlando (two hours away--which did not show up on my initial scan of the Space Coast) to find my Vypyr. It was worth the drive.

If versatility is your game, there really is no better amp in the price range (or even a bit above, for that matter).

I definitely like my Vypyr 60 better. Some would say that for low-mid gain stuff the Vox's are better but I don't know. The Vypyr 60 is just such a joy. I have a mid gain'ish clip called 'Vypyr 60 - Brit' or something like that and shredkev has a bunch of great Vypyr 60 clips on youtube.

Do it!
