i got rid of my 6505+ head for that reason - it had three volume settings:
0 .... no sound
0-0.75 .... home level
anything past 0.75 .... STADIUM LEVELS!!!!

i replaced it with a XXX head that has a much more linear volume.


the home usable range on the Vyper Pro for me is below 1 on the volume knob. if i breathe on the knob a little, my extreme volume level warning siren (wife) goes off.
The amp software does not effect (Control) the master volume. Does your guitar have active pickups, The vypyr's were designed for passive pickups. The pre gain is volume before the preamp and the post gain is volume after the preamp. The master is volume for the power amp. It's sounds like you like to max the pre and or post gain. You can use the sponge ( see manual ) to control clean or distortion at lower volume settings. Try experimenting with the pre and post gain and the sponge. If you have active pickups turn down the volume on the guitar.
Also if you have sanpera The pedal controls the volume between 0 and the number you set on the master volume. The information I gave works for me. I set the master at 5 and let the presets take care of All other settings.

thank-you.

it sounds like i need to lower my post gains .... still trying to get familiar with this sucker.

i was using post gain to adjust levels of the amps - for example if i wanted a little more 3120 to come through than 6534 on a 2-amp patch, i would adjust the 3120 post gain a little higher ...

No, you are on the right track with post gain and mixing amps. You want more of one then increase post gain or decrease the other amps post gain. There does exist a master volume for the preset in the deep edit menu. This is separate from the master on the front of the amp.

Do you have the Sanpera Pro? The left pedal defaults to a volume control, and works great! I run my Power Sponge anywhere between 50-100%, and my Master Volume at 2.25...then I just use the volume pedal to bring it down to bedroom levels.

Warlock is correct. That will fix it. Go into the master volume in the deep editing mode and set as desired.

So you are referring to the master volume in the deep edit menu or the main amp volume on the front panel?

Since the amp is Transtube, as you turn it up, it will break up accordingly, just like a tube amp. The PowerSponge addresses this by reducing the available power to the power amp section, so you can turn the master on the front up to where you want it and then use the PowerSponge on the back to lower the amp to whatever level you need, all the way down to 1% power!

Hi Everybody,

New member here! Just ordered my Vypyr PRO + Sanpera PRO Saturday and anxiously awaiting shipment. Like some of you have mentioned, I can't find one in any of the "big music box" stores - they appear to always be "in stock by order only."

Will be putting my VIP 3 and Sanpera II up for sale on CL. Probably will take a beating!

I'm a spoiled studio guitarist (and an occasional gigging one) that leans toward clean or lightly overdriven tones (think Walter Becker, John Scofield, even SRV) but sometimes also needs access to very saturated crunchy ones.

I see that the focus of this amp are primarily heavy rock and metal tones, so I'd be really appreciative if someone posted a link to a video (or audio only) in-depth review of cleaner tones, using predominantly single coil equipped guitars, like strats, teles, P90 camp, even 335.

I have to say that the Michael Smith clean tones using the red AT200 didn't excite me a bit. They lacked character and weight of a real tube amp.
I'd also like to know if there's any emulation of a nylon guitar tone and how good it is.

I own a bunch of guitars of all sorts (more than a dozen, including a Variax Standard in which I put Mojotone Quietcoil PU's and added series PU switching) and several amps, all of which tube ones, modified to the bone.

This latest Peavey modelling amp offers an amazing range of possibilities and I'd buy it in a wink if it nailed the sound I have in my head! With so much effort by everyone at Peavey, why not take the extra step and add some more informative in-depth reviews that would benefit less common guitar players?


Have you looked at Willy Booger's review on YouTube?

They have an ad in August issue of Premier Guitar featuring the Pro. They're getting it out there slowly but surely.

Do they sell outside US? Here in Brazil I can't find them, neither VIPs. Bought my VIP 2 from an independent importer.
Peavey should do more marketing in here... It is difficult to see even a Bandit in the stores...
