Product Description

VYPYR® X3 Guitar Modeling Amp
Peavey Electronics introduced the original VYPYR guitar amplifier in 2008. This game changing amplifier launched many industry firsts, such as first guitar amplifier to have on-board USB, stompbox presets, looper, 5 effect simultaneous operation, and TransTube®, Peavey's revolutionary analog/digital hybrid technology. In 2012 Peavey raised the bar again with the VYPYR VIP, the world's first Variable Instrument Performance amp. This was the first amplifier designed for use with electric, bass, and acoustic guitar. Additionally, Peavey was the first company to introduce instrument models to an already feature-packed amplifier.

Now continuing the tradition of innovation and excellence, Peavey launches the VYPYR X modeling amplifier. This latest evolution of the groundbreaking VYPYR series features updated styling, superior cabinet design for premier acoustic performance, and improved TransTube® technology. The new VYPYR X3 also features Bluetooth® remote control and audio streaming in. Now users can stream backing tracks into the amplifier and control all settings via iOS remote app control.

VYPYR X3 Amplifier

Analog Distortion

Each VYPYR X is equipped with Peavey's exclusive TransTube® technology. This true anal0og distortion not only sounds better, it leaves the amplifier's processing power dedicated to the effects, allowing the VYPYR X to run up to 5 effects simultaneously. When playing live nothing "cuts through the mix" like a VYPYR. Many modeling amps simply can't be heard in a live setting because of their poor digital distortion and practice amp EQ. TransTube® technology is designed analog to emulate real tubes, and sits perfectly in the mix in a live environment.

Variable Instrument Input

Thanks to our revolutionary cabinet design and world class processing, users can switch from electric guitar to bass or acoustic on the same amplifier. One amp for all of your performance needs.

Instrument Models

Make your electric sound like an acoustic or bass guitar, or on the VYPYR X3 up to 10 different instrument models.

Bluetooth® VYPYR® X Control

Control your VYPYR X2 remotely with on-board Bluetooth wireless remote control via Peavey's exclusive VYPYR control app for iOS and Android devices. Now change and store all your favorite presets remotely. Stream audio in, play to your favorite backing tracks, or just sit back and enjoy streaming your favorite music.

X3 WYSIWYG Interface


WYSIWYG Interface

Another Peavey original, the WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) interface allows users to identify the position of the knobs with a glance at the amp. When a modeling amp changes presets the settings on the knobs change with it; however, on most amps the position of the knob no longer corresponds with the actual setting.

This can cause confusion and mistakes that result in random, unwanted outcomes. With the VYPYR, the LEDs around the knob always indicate what position it is in relative to the current preset. Simply a better solution.

Amp Accessible Operation

Many competitors claim their amps have multiple effects and models, but most of them are not fully functional without the use of external software. With the VYPYR X you can access ANY of the features of the amp, right from the front of the amp itself or with the use of a footswitch in the case of the looper. This is a key advantage found on all VYPYR X amplifiers.

VYPYR X3 Amp Operations

No hooking up a computer in order to edit your favorite preset or swap out an effect, you can do it right from the amplifier itself.

Packed with Amplifiers & Effects
The VYPYR is packed with amplifiers & effects so you don't need to buy them one at a time. Purchased individually the amps and effects iin the VYPYR amp could cost well over $50,000. Our VYPYR series is an unbelievable value. VYPYRs use the same technology found in stompbox pedals that cost almost as much as a VYPYR for a single effect.

For the same amount of money, the Peavey VYPYR X3 gives you 26 effects in addition to 10 instrument models and 36 amplifier models.

This is a great gigging amp

What is your opinion of this product?

Not only does this have a boat load of effects and models, they sound great and it sounds like a REAL amp. There is nothing thin or digital sounding about this amp. It has great tones and a full sound that are not limited by some processor in the amp. Very tubish. Take some time to learn the Sanpera foot switch and you have a whole bag of tricks ready for anything.

Subject: Pedal compatibility
Discussion: Would this be compatible with a crybaby wah? Peavey Response: It would be, but why when you have a wah wah on the unit and all you will need is the controller?

Subject: Pedal compatibility
Discussion: Is there a list of compatible pedals for the X3? Or will any work? Peavey Response: The Sanpera™ II Foot Controller would be compatible with the VYPYR X3 Modeling Amp.
