The Vypyr VIP 1 Amplifier from Peavey is a 20-watt combo amp engineered for multiple instruments. It contains bass guitar, acoustic and electric guitar amplifier modes. Using the Variable Instrument Input, a single amp can provide amplification for a variety of instrument types. It allows the electric guitar player access to instrument models as well.
Using 32-bit, floating point SHARC processors and patented TransTube analog circuitry contributes to the versatile sound of this modeling amplifier. All VYPYR effects, amp models and parameter controls can be accessed via the amp itself, with no need to connect the amplifier to a computer. Peavey's WYSIWYG control surface quickly allows the user the ability to see and adjust the control position, without having to guess where the control is supposed to be, or having to manually adjust it. VYPYR's bi-directional USB data and audio port provide an easy way to record, connect to VYPYR software, store presets, get lessons, and practice to backing tracks while connected to your computer. This model improves upon the original VYPYR series, including more power, effects, amp models, Variable Instrument Input, instrument models, and more.
