Hi guys ive decided to buy a peavey vypyr 30. Is it too loud for bedroom practice or should I get the 15w version?

I play a 50 watt tube amp for bedroom practice. It has a volume knob for a reason. Virtually any amp can be used for a bedroom, don't worry about it. I'd even get the Vypyr tube 60 if I could afford.

you will be fine.

within my sight i see 970 watts worth of tube amps. 200 of SS bass, and i have more in the back... i get along plenty fine.

bottom line, volumes knobs exist for a reason.

As long as you don't turn the volume all the way up you'll be fine. One thing SS amps have over tubes is you can put them really low, like at 1 or even less, and they sound fine. You don't need to crank them to get all out of them(and usually they sound worse the higher the volumes).


Good choice on an amp though. I'm planning on ordering the vip2 40 watt next week.

Actually this has nothing to do with tubes or transistors.

It's a misconception originated from the misconception that tube amps sound "better" at higher volumes, when in reality this is either referring to the distortion caused by overdriving the power section which is pleasurable to a lot of people, or the fact that our ears like stuff at higher volume in general.

The myth started with "tube amps sound better at higher volumes" and ended up with "SS amps don't sound better at higher volumes so they sound the same at all volume levels, hence they sound better than tube amps at lower volumes".

But it's only a misconception really - if an amp sounds better than another amp at higher volumes, then it will sound better at lower volumes as well, all other things (cab, speakers...) being equal.

TS get the 30w version.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

I have a 30w vypyr and it worked fine for bedroom practice. Just setting the master volume low works, but if you really need to be quiet, it has a headphone out too

This. I have a Vypyr 30 and a 6505+ 112 converted into a head. The 6505+ is 60 watts. When running them into the same cab, (Vypyr set to the 6505 model) the real thing sounds better at all volume levels, by quite a bit. That's not to say the Vypyr sounds bad, it's just not comparable to the real thing. Also, the Vyp does sound better when I turn it up a bit, just like my 6505 does.

I think the reason they both sound better when turned up has a lot more to do with the cab/speakers filling in the sound better, rather than anything happening in the tubes/circuitry.

The key to the Vypyr 30W is to turn the POST GAIN DOWN. The default settings always had it cranked which made the volume knob very, very touchy and LOUD. Turn the Post down and the master up a little.
