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.

Peavey Vypyr Modeling Guitar Amplifiers

The Peavey VYPYR modeling guitar amplifiers – Vypyr 15, Vypyr 30, Vypyr 75 – are some of the most technologically advanced and affordable guitar modeling amplifiers available. The Vypyr guitar amps have double the processing power and effects of competitive modeling amplifiers. These new Peavey modeling guitar amps dramatically redefine the power and scope of modern guitar amplification. VYPYR amplifiers are based on a combination of powerful 32-bit, floating-point SHARC processors and patented TransTube analog circuitry. 

When used with the optional Peavey Sanpera™ II foot controller, the possibilities further expand from 12 in-amp presets to 400 programmable presets, with an on-board looper and more. 

Peavey VYPYR modeling guitar amps also act as their own computer audio interface, with a built-in studio-quality USB 2.0 output on most models. The entire six-model VYPYR Series features the easy-to-use Peavey WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) interface.
