peavey amps

Peavey Electronics latest evolution of the VYPYR design includes three new models with updated styling, enhanced acoustic performance, and improved TransTube analog/digital hybrid technology.

The VYPYR X Series carries on the tradition of the pioneering VYPYR guitar amplifier, circa 2008, which remedied common problems with modeling amps. Many modeling amps simply can't be heard in a live setting because of their poor digital distortions and practice amp EQ. Peavey's exclusive TransTube technology, improved in the new VYPYR X Series provides the solution with true analog distortion that emulates real tubes. This not only sounds better but leaves the amplifiers processing power dedicated to the effects. As a result, VYPYR X amps can run up to five effects simultaneously, sitting perfectly in the mix in a live environment.

The feature-packed VYPYR X Series amplifiers each arrive with 12 stompbox effects with dual parameter control and an on-board looper accessed through the optional Sanpera footswitch. The custom cabinet is designed for optimal low-end response with a semi-open back design providing enhanced volume and tone. Each VYPYR X amp comes equipped with 36 on-board amp modes, including 6 acoustic and 6 bass amp models; universal delay and reverb; a custom-voiced heavy-duty speaker; a 3.5 mm aux in for connecting audio sources; and a headphone jack. The top-of-the-line VYPYR X3 delivers 100 Watts RMS, over 400 amp-accessible presets, and a LED screen for ease of setup and preset identification.

Retail Pricing: Vypyr X1 $199.99 USD, Vypyr X2 $299.99 USD, Vypyr X3 $399.99 USD.

We’re almost finished with the aging process on our project guitar. Let’s work on the fretboard, nut, and truss rod cover, and prepare the headstock for the last hurrah.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.

Diatonic sequences are powerful tools. Here’s how to use them wisely.



• Understand how to map out the neck in seven positions.
• Learn to combine legato and picking to create long phrases.
• Develop a smooth attack—even at high speeds.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
