Winter NAMM: Peavey Introduces Vypyr 30 Head & Mini Stack
ANAHEIM, Calif. (NAMM exhibit #5740, Hall B) — Peavey proudly announces the new Vypyr 30 Head and Mini Stack, giving guitar players two new ways to get the award-winning tones and advanced technology of the Peavey Vypyr Series.
The Vypyr 30 Head features 24 amp channel models—two channels of 12 popular amps for the first time anywhere—plus 11 editable preamp 'stomp box' effects and 11 editable post-amp 'rack' effects with dual-parameter control. The Vypyr 30 Mini Stack includes the full-featured Vypyr 30 Head plus two specially voiced enclosures loaded with one 12' Blue Marvel loudspeaker each.
With twice the processing power, models and effects of competitive modeling amplifiers, the Vypyr Series dramatically redefines the power and scope of modern guitar amplification. Vypyr amplifiers are built on powerful 32-bit, floating-point SHARC processors that enable vastly enhanced flexibility and features than ever before available in guitar amplification. Peavey's patented, analog TransTube circuitry creates the amp models' overdrive tones, so all 32 bits of processing powerare devoted to creating highly detailed, accurate models of the amps and effects.
The Peavey Vypyr Series has won prestigious awards for its tone and technology, including Product of the Year and Instrument Amp of the Year from the Music Sound Retailer; the Gold Award for Overall Value from Guitar World; and Amp Line of the Year two years in a row from Musical Merchandise Review.
Peavey Vypyr amps are endorsed by hard rock's top guitar players, including Corey Beaulieu of Trivium, Matt Tuck of Bullet For My Valentine and Phil Demmel of Machine Head.
Amplifier models included in the Vypyr Tube 120 Head include Peavey 6505, JSX, Triple XXX and Classic Series models, as well as B-Kat, Brit, Plxi, Dlx, Twn, Dzl, K-Stein and Rec models. Preamp stomp-box models include TubeScrm, XR Wild, X Boost, Fuzz, BC Chorus, Analog Phase, Analog Phase, Auto Wah, Squeeze, MOG and Ring Modulator, while rack effect models include Tremolo, Chorus, Envelope Filter, Slap Back, Flanger, Octaver, Phaser, Rotary Speaker, Reverse, Pitch Shifter and Looper.
The new Peavey Vypyr 30 Head and Vypyr 30 Mini Stack will be available from authorized Peavey retailers in Q1 2010.
