Vypyr 3 case corners (plastic feet)

Post by Joel » Wed Jun 24, 2020 4:51 pm

I just received my vypyr 3 amp and 5 out of 8 of the plastic corners/feet are broken. Anyone know where I can order replacements? Preferably metal so they don't break again???
Thanks!

I had the same issue several years ago when I bought mine.
Sad to see that they haven't fixed it.
I got replacements from Peavey, I carefully opened up the mounting holes a bit and did not tighten the screws down all the way.
Seems to be better if not perfect.
I couldn't find metal replacements, let me know if you do.
Cool amp though.

I used my VIP 2 for a couple months as a gigging amp (connected to a 2x12 cab). A couple of trips in the equipment trailer and the corners disintegrated. I replaced all of them with metal corners.
