Peavey Vypyr — Pat, I’d like to buy a vowel please…

Got this amp used on Craigslist for a pretty good price (I think).  Tried it out for a couple of minutes the other day just to make sure everything works.  It seems to have a lot of sounds in it.  It’s a very, very light amp — perfect to carry around.  Tonight will be the big test — going to try using it to give a lesson.  We’re working on Back in Black (AC/DC).  So I’ll be trying to dialing in some classic, Marshall stack like distortion with some nice overtones.  It’s got to sound decent with power chords, full chords, and blues licks.  So we’ll see.  Sure beats lugging around an amp and a huge pedal board.
