What a killer little practice amp! This amp has a very good tone for being an amp modeler and enough features that will having you playing for hours. You actually might be spending too much time tweaking then actually playing so this could be a bad thing. Either way this is a nice bang for your buck all around effects and amp modeling amp.

SOUNDS

This is an all encompassing amp that you only need a guitar and cable and you are set. It is a nice amp for those starting out playing on the the electric guitar and mom or dad don't want to shell out too much money just yet.

Compared to the solid state Vypyr series this amp has a lot more dynamic range and punch to the tone. Not a bad or good thing just a personal taste thing. The tone has more girth and tube feel obviously with the added power tubes.

I like this amp with a humbucking pickup style guitar. Since this amp is sort of modeled after some of Peavey's more high gain amps it is only fitting to play it with a guitar that can cut some of the hum and noise out. Plus the increase of gain with the humbuckers is essential when playing in the XXX mode of this amp.

OVERALL OPINION

At new these amps come in at around $450, which is a steal if you ask me. For what you get and the options to explore this amp is just killer for the price. You couldn't find a better sounding amp or something even close to the price of this amp. Peavey are masters at keeping decent enough tone in a rather nice price point.

I highly recommend this amp to anyone thinking of getting a practice amp and doesn't want to shell out a ton of money to get. Just need a cable and guitar and you will be good to go.
