Love my gen 1 Vypyr 75 but it's never worked well at all w/ my Sanpea 1 pedal (connects 10% of the time & even then sporadically) Anyone think a firmware update will help (it's currently 1.5.8)? Amp works great otherwise. Found a vypyr firmware history that lists 1.6.6 but Peavey's psge only goes up to 1.5.9

Dont do it. Your sanpera problem is more likely the dang multi pin plug, not firmware. It is annoying when the pedal is not functioning. Buy a new cable. Most likely culprit. I've gone through 5 of them in a decade. They get hinky.

Firmware swaps in Vypyrs can leave the amp dead. Dont do it. If it works in every other way, DO NOT UPDATE THE FIRMWARE. You will not solve the pedal issue and could kill the amp.

Try some Deoxit on the cable, and plug and unplug a few times, both ends. I own a 75 that went thru all the firmware updates and even a back level or two. It has been rock solid thru all all. But as Dalrymple notes, others have not been as successful. There are some solid recommendations on firmware level in the Tips/Tracks/FAQs topic.
