Peavey Vypyr 30 Guitar Amp Review


I just recently bought a Peavey Vypyr 30 guitar amp and I have to say it is much better than I thought it would be. When I first started playing the amp in my home the first thing I noticed was the thin digital sound. I have to admit initially I was a little let down and discouraged. It seems though the Vypyr 30 is like a fine bottle of wine ( more on that in a moment). Right out of the box I soon learned just how loud this amp is………Trust me it is enough to get my wife screaming and the dog barking, both asking me to turn it down . I was really surprised just how much bone jarring crunch this amp was capable of when adjusted correctly.  Speaking of adjustments, the EQ  (Low – Mid – High) is very sensitive and to really appreciate it you have to make slow turns and take a listen. At first I didn't think much of it until I took the time to slow down and open my ears. The Vypyr is loaded with a single 12 in. 8 ohm “Blue Marvel” Speaker ( the same speaker the current Peavey Bandit 112 uses) that just seems to get better with every use.

Now to the fine wine comment. (It just gets better with age). I have used the Peavey Vypyr 30 for little over one month now and have noticed that thin digital sound has faded leaving a  warmer rich tone ! Others have had the same experience I noticed from forum statements. Most attribute this from the breaking in or settling in of the speaker. I personally don't know, I do know the more I use it the better it sounds.
Anyone who tells you that the Peavey Vypyr 30 is a beginner amp or practice amp, they are full of shit. This little amp can hold it own with no problems, and I absolutely love it.
