Peavey Electronics is now shipping its Vypyr VIP line of modeling amps. The Vypyr VIP series are the world’s first amplifiers that contain electric guitar, bass guitar, and acoustic guitar models. With Peavey’s Variable Instrument Input, a single amp can provide amplification for all three instrument types.
Not only are players able to switch from an electric amp to a bass amp to an acoustic amp, they also have the ability to access instrument models. With the Vypyr VIP series, players can access realistic instrument simulations, allowing them to manipulate the sound of their electric guitar to mimic an acoustic guitar, a bass, a 12-string guitar, and more.
Using the combination of a powerful 32-bit, floating-point SHARC processor and patented TransTube analog circuitry, the Vypyr VIP series contains innovative technology to create the most diverse and best sounding modeling amplifiers available. The Vypyr VIPs feature new acoustically ported semi-closed back enclosures, which create an extremely full sound. Guitarists also have access to over 70 amp, instrument, stompbox models and rack style effects, allowing for endless creative options and a completely new range of tonal possibilities.
Te Vypyr VIP series includes Peavey's WYSIWYG interface, which allows the user to be able to identify the proper position of the encoders from preset to preset. In addition, one control can be used for multiple functions.
Vypyr’s recording capabilities, edit software, and store presets are easily accessible via the new USB bi-directional data and audio port. The Vypyr VIP series also includes a MIDI port for use with Sanpera foot controllers.
The Vypyr VIP series consists of three combos: the 20-Watt VIP 1, the 40-Watt VIP 2, and the 100-Watt VIP 3. Peavey’s PowerSponge variable power enables players to adjust the power output to suit any playing situation. The Vypyr VIP also contains convenient features like a built-in chromatic tuner, on-board looper with Sanpera pedal control, studio quality headphone out, and much more.
