Vypyr PRO is not listed on Peavey site anymore. Not like it matters much...

Re: Boss Katana anyone?

Long time owner of Vypyr Tube 60. Traded it in for Katana head ~1yr ago, because couldn’t stand built-in noise gate choking notes at a bedroom level, and because of all the online hype around Katana. Both amps were used (Katana still is) on almost daily basis. In short, Katana is definitely not a le...

GC price drop on Vypyr Pro

Fwiw, GC lists new Vypro for $477 instead of regular $599. If you get 15% off coupon, which are almost always available, it will drop it to $405.

Re: Adding external speaker jack to vypry pro 100

I wonder if external output mod for Katana (just search for "Boss Katana speaker out mod") would work for Vypro, too.

Re: Vypyr Vip1 - USB recording help

So it's not possible to mix the backing track with the guitar sound in the USB output. Why would you even need to do it? You can hear backtrack while recording, and you can import backtrack into your DAW. After you have imported backtrack into your DAW, and recorded you guitar output, just sync the...

Re: Picked up used Tube 60 - Need Refresher

2 Kernel . I don't quite get your concern about the light show, if all works. But if it bothers you, then: If you turn up the amp without guitar cable plugged in, and not holding any preset buttons , is it on? It should be the case. I never tried to turn on the amp while holding of the presets 3 & 4...

Re: Tube 60 afterlife suggestions.

Vypro? Even well established Bandit is, as dalrymple says, "unicorn". Just out of curiosity I checked which GCs have Bandits in stock in 200mi radius from Austin. NONE. And there's exactly ONE GC in Houston having Vypro in stock. Stocking VIP2 is a very doubtful way to sell people on the Peavey brand.

Re: Tube 60 afterlife suggestions.

Small update: just realized that I have ancient Pandora PX4D at home, so plugged its headphone out into Vypyr aux in, and gave it a try. Works perfect. Reminded me how imperfect those old tech was, where each hi-gain note turned into a swarm of bees in 10 sec. Even though Vypyr is so-so in this sens...

j_fury68: I knew you'll suggest FX loop mod, remember those thread of yours. :) Great mod! But , really, what exactly is "1/8 aux in Jack leaves a bit to be desired" ? Is it a different signal path? Will have a degraded signal compared to (added by mod) FX in ? One small thing which sounds tempting ...

Tube 60 afterlife suggestions.

There're reasons I'm not fully satisfied by my tube 60, so decided to try a modeling amp (head) of another manufacturer. Now, if trade-in value for Vypyr would be super low - and it very well may be - what are the ways to re-use the Vypyr, given that I don't care for its DSP ? Obvious choice is to m...

Re: Why I haven't been around lateley

Very good point raised by OP. While I never owned 2nd gen Vypyr or Boss Katana, from youtube videos I absolutely prefer Vypyr tones, no contest. But when I inspected those amps in the local GC, Vypyr felt a cheap plastic Chinese toy, while Katana felt built like a tank. Btw, I'm sure Katana's are bu...

Re: Vypyr 60 Volume

I'm a former owner of a Vypyr 30 and am considering buying a used Vypyr Tube 60. I only play at home at bedroom volume levels though. Will the Tube 60 allow me to do this like my 30 did? Will I have to keep volume down to less than 1 to make it happen? If so, maybe I should just go with another 30,...

if you want some serious tones, get a Vypyr Pro. a bit more expensive
$300+ for me is "a hell lot more expensive", not "a bit more". :roll: Of course, this amp is on another level.
