So are the owners of the 15 watt Vypyr left out of the software upgrade loop? With no midi and no USB, I don't see a way to fix the low level noise, the faulty gate when using a tubescreamer as mentioned by Unbelievable in the post below, or the harsh treble response found on many of the models. I can live with the power up problem by not plugging my guitar in to start but the tubescreamer in front of the deluxe and other models is unusable at lower gain settings or with light picking, which is funny because the manual boosts "try combining a tubescreamer with a clean deluxe". Did anybody at Peavey try the tubescreamer with a deluxe before they approved of the production of these amps? Additionally, has anyone found that the chorus level is just way too much? Come on, with all that processing power, we get no choice for the level or mix of the chorus, as well phaser, etc? By the way, when trying the 75 watt I found both choruses to sound pretty much the same, and both way to much in the mix, with no way to turn it down, or up for that matter. The only controls are speed and depth and it sounds like the level was set by some 14 year-old kid at guitar center.
I basically love many of the sounds of this amp and the headphone out is really nice, one of the best I've heard. I know its only $99 bucks and I'm amazed at that, but really, is Peavey going to do something for the owners of the 15 watters? My only other choice is to return it and wait for the upgraded models, which is such a pain.
When the bugs are fixed, I'll be interested in the larger versions for live use. By the way, I'm a long time Peavey fan and have purchased many amps, guitars and PA gear in the past 30 years or so. I hope Peavey can work this out, I believe they will. But yikes, this is not good. I would really like to hear a response from Peavey about this, as I am sure others would. Thank you.
Do you even OWN a 15? I'm thinking no, because it doesn't even HAVE stompbox effects built in. Therefore, no tubescreamer. (response edited by moderator
The 15 watt Does have a tubescreamer, but it is located in the effects knob instead of the looper.
