Peavey Nano Vypyr Portable Guitar Amp

The Peavey Nano Vypyr portable guitar amp advances the tones and technology of the award-winning Vypyr Series in a compact modeling guitar amp that can be powered by AC adapter or four D batteries.  This 15-watt amp houses a 6 ½” loudspeaker in a 10″ cube enclosure engineered with a sophisticated, true transmission line porting system that greatly enhances bass response, sound projection and volume.

Peavey has packed 11 amp models and 32 effects combinations into the new Nano Vypyr, the ultimate grab-and-go, portable modeling guitar amplifier.

The Nano Vypyr features 11 exclusive analog amp models—two clean models, two overdrive models, two rock models, two metal models, two lead models and one acoustic model—plus global bass, mid, treble and gain controls to adjust the tones of each model. The amplifier also has a built-in DSP section that includes chorus, wah, compression, compression/chorus, flanger, octaver, tremolo, rotary speaker, reverb, and delay with tap tempo, with 32 possible combinations. An effects control knob adjusts multiple parameters for each effect at once, while the optional expression pedal gives users real-time parameter control over the effects.

Additional features include a microphone input with level, chromatic tuner, auxiliary input, headphone output, adjustable handle, and strap buttons on each side for grab-and-go playing.

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.

The Peavey Nano Vypyr battery powered or AC guitar amp will be available from Andy’s Music in Q1 2010. Visit for more information.

New Peavey Bass Speaker Enclosures

Four all-new Peavey bass speaker enclosures have been introduced for the award-winning, USA-made VB™ Series. The new VB-215™, VB-115™, VB-410™ and VB-210™ are designed to accompany the all-tube Peavey VB-3™ bass amplifier, winner of Bass Player‘s prestigious Editor Award.

The Peavey VB-215 and VB-115 feature Peavey’s legendary Black Widow® loudspeakers, which produce classic bass tone with excellent power handling and punch. Both cabs are vented to allow full expression of the low frequencies. The VB-215 also has heavy-duty casters on the rear bottom to provide easy transport, plus a convenient pull-bar handle on the top rear. Built-in skid rails on the back protect the enclosure from the abuse of constant load-in and load-out road use.

The VB-410 and VB-210 showcase Peavey’s specially designed 10″ ceramic-magnet loudspeakers, as well as a dynamic horn tweeter with level control. All Peavey VB Series bass enclosures are constructed with premium-grade 12mm Baltic birch plywood, extensively braced and covered in a durable polyurethane Hammer Head™ finish.

Pro bass players such as Michael Anthony (Chickenfoot), Zakk Sandler (Black Tide), Jon Lawhon (Black Stone Cherry), Eric Taylor (Saving Abel) and Randy Armstrong (Red) use the Peavey VB Series.

The Peavey VB-215, VB-115, VB-410 and VB-210 bass cabinets will be available in Q1 2010 from Andy’s Music. For more information, call 251-633-8944, or visit
