What is your overall opinion of this product?
The Vypyr amps have been the best at modeling several years. The tone is unbelievable. I own the 30 the 75 and the Vip ll.The vip is a nice do it all amp. The clean tones are great and the heavy tones are unmatched. Vip series added an acoustic si.ulator that is superior in tonal quality and it allows you to play it through a simulated acoustic amp. Very Nice. I think it sounds superior onstage with no feedback worries to a real acoustic. The XXX amp is my preferred amp and it is the replacement of the JSX Satriani amp. The tone starts out as sounding perfect with flat settings and has a wide range of tone. Side by side the old Vypyr series is brighter through the Blue Marvel Speaker and it sounds great at lower levels. The vip speaker is smoother tailored hi and low end definition and sounds better at louder levels. Both sound great recording and line out to a PA. My wish is for Peavy to add XLR outs and stereo fx as others suggested. But a standard vocal mic sounds great and 40 watts is as loud as an amp should be if stage volume is under control. The amp should have a more affordable pedal is my only complaint. My remedy was to create a preset that sounds identical to the output of the guitar unaffected and use a multi pedal when quick changes are a must. Still awesome and gets a 5 out of 5 from me especially for the addition of great acoustic sounds.
