Peavey Introduces Nano Vypyr Modeling Guitar Amp

Peavey has packed 11 amp models and 35 effects combinations into its new Nano Vypyr, a portable modeling guitar amp that can be powered by AC adapter or batteries.

The amp 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 bass, mid, treble and gain controls to adjust the tones of each model. The preamp section is based on Peavey’s analog TransTube technology, while the power section is lightweight class D.

The amplifier 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 35 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 and headphone output.
