Peavey VYPYR VIP 1 20W 1×8 Guitar Modeling Combo Amp
The Peavey VYPYR VIP 1 20W 1×8 Guitar Modeling Combo Amp is the world’s first Variable Instrument Performance amplifier. It has amp models for electric, acoustic, and bass guitars. Peavey uses a combination of 32-bit, floating point SHARC processors and patented Transtube® analog circuitry to create their modeling amplifiers. All of the VYPYR effects, amp models and parameter controls can be accessed from the control panel on the front of the amp so there is no need to connect it to a computer. The VYPYR does feature a new USB bi-directional data and audio port, however, for recording or to connect to VYPYR software to store presets, get lessons, or practice to backing tracks while connected to your computer.
The 20-watt amp features a specially voiced eight-inch modeling speaker and the cabinet features an acoustically ported semi-closed back. The amp comes loaded with 16 presets covering a wide range of tones. There are 36 on-board amp models, including six bass amp models and six acoustic amp models. There are 25 effects and up to four can be used simultaneously.
The Peavey VYPYR features an Enhanced Chromatic Tuner, Tap tempo, and an onboard Looper. It features Aux, MP3, and CD input, and studio quality headphone output. Many features and effects (such as the Looper) can be opened or expanded by using an optional footswitch.
