Item Reviews for: Peavey Vypyr Tube 60 Guitar Combo Amplifier  -  PEV VYPYRTUBE60 LIST

Extremely versatile, nails every tone. Won't go back to solid state Line6 products.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I haven't packed it around much, but no issues so far. I think it's only "locked up" on me once in the 2 years I've owned it, and never mid-song. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Owned for 2 years, no problems. I've cranked it up well over half during rehearsals and it still sounds awesome. I play in a rock/metal band with another guitar, bass, and drum set and was able to get enough volume with the tone remaining clear and undistorted. General Your general opinion of this product. I mostly use a Les Paul Studio when I play through it. All of the amp models sound terrific and very true to the original. Surprising amount of volume from such a small amp. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Effects are easy to maniupulate and having 2 controllable parameters is very cool. I owned a spider II before this and it only had 1 controllable parameter, rendering the effects nearly useless. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Big difference between the solid state and tube. I was able to test them side by side and the warmth of tube is obvious. Definitely worth the extra cash. Clean channels are clearer, distortion is warmer, pinch harmonics really snap out. Very clear, very punctuated. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Nothing special. Doesn't look bad. Action How was the action out of the box? N/A

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Build wise, it's like a tank. Very heavy too. I only have a few dings in the tolex so far. I've had to replace the fuse and when I did, I also replaced the tubes though I kept them as spares. Reliability How has it stood up over time? This has locked up on me a few times as the Vypyr line in general is known for. The fuse blew once as well and it sort of "browned out" on me prior to the fuse blowing. Being that it has digital effects, the software can crash and lock it up sometimes. General Your general opinion of this product. I've owned this for almost 2 years now. I've practived with it and played out with it. It gets the job done and does it well. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? N/A Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? With all the different models of amps and effects built into this, you can get just about anything. I build patches specifically for songs. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? the amp looks great. There is storage in the back of the cabinet as well which is a plus. I keep extra fuses, a USB cable, MIDI to USB converter, and some spare AUX and GUITAR cables. Action How was the action out of the box? N/A
