|Following its launch at Winter NAMM Show 2010, Anaheim, Peavey took the latest addition to the VYPYR modeling amplifier series, the Tube 120H Head and matching VYPYR 412 loudspeaker enclosure to Musikmesse Frankfurt 2010, Germany. The VYPYR Tube 120H Head utilizes a four-6L6GC tube power amp styled after the Peavey 6505. VYPYR amplifiers are based on 32-bit, floating-point SHARC processors that enable detailed, accurate modeling.|
The VYPYR Tube 120H Head features 24 amp channel models —clean and distorted channels of 12 popular amps— plus 11 editable preamp 'stomp box' effects and 11 editable post-amp 'rack' effects with dual-parameter control, global reverb and global delay. Players can add the optional Peavey Sanpera II foot controller to activate the on-board looper and expand the amp’s 12 built-in presets to 400 programmable presets, with up to five simultaneous effects.
Amplifier models included in the VYPYR Tube 120 Head include Peavey 6505, JSX, Triple XXX and Classic Series models, as well as B-Kat, Brit, Plxi, Dlx, Twn, Dzl, K-Stein and Rec models. Preamp stomp-box models include TubeScrm, XR Wild, X Boost, Fuzz, BC Chorus, Analog Phase, Auto Wah, Squeeze, MOG and Ring Modulator, while rack effect models include Tremolo, Chorus, Envelope Filter, Slap Back, Flanger, Octaver, Phaser, Rotary Speaker, Reverse, Pitch Shifter and Looper.
The VYPYR also acts as its own computer audio interface, with a built-in studio-quality USB 2.0 output that is recognized by computers as an audio device.
The new Peavey 412 Slant EX loudspeaker enclosure is specially tuned to the VYPYR Tube 120H with 300 watts max power handling at 16 ohms.
