    OK, so I come in for a rehearsal Sunday afternoon at church and our classical guitarist has his 64 ounce big gulp and salad sitting on my Two Rock Classic Reverb . . . . I need a cheap decent amp/lunch table.

    So, how's this Vyper ???? I just need a decent sounding "do it all" amp that I won't worry about. Amps like my TR are wasted in that venue.

    probably means V(Vypyr)-twin (amp) with something else (stomp box) in front. The Vypyr simulates using a classic amp design with a popular stomp box in front of it as well as adding tonnes of effects to that. I don't own but I've done my homework and wanna try one soon.

    I can think of about a million better ways of handling that situation than leaving an amp that you've invested that amount of money at home instead of playing it in front of an audience. C'mon now...the waste would be leaving a Two Rock at home while playing in front of an audience.

    What I've learned from sharing practice spaces is you should just put your amp in an ATA case and lock the case when you leave. For church stuff, if you want something more modest perhaps the Line 6 Flextones, or if you want all tube, try the Crate Palominos, they're like a poor man's AC30

    I agree, the church gig is only one of my playing gigs. Due to the way the two services flow, it is impossible to remove my amp from the stage without being disruptive until after the second service. The TR will get plenty of gig-time.

    Neither will you. You just needed a place to set your beverage and burrito just like his aize.

    I fooled around with the small $99 version. I guess it sounds OK for what it is. The alarming thing to me is the build quality. This thing made Behringer seem like boo-teek build quality!

    Why don't you get a blackheart for the church gig?

    I just don't understand the stupid name and cosmetics. Why produce a cutting edge amp and then target 12 Y/O's with it? If They took that Bat cape off of it I might be interested in the tube version.

    I plugged into a Vyper 75watt just for fun and I loved the thing. The 30 was "ok". I'm gonna go check out the Vyper Tube 60 with 2x6L6 power section and decide on it or the SS 75 watter. Great practice and grab-n-go amps. No head/cab/pedalboard to lug around to last minute jams anymore. I've been needing something for a while. 75 Watter is $299, Tube 60 is $449. Optional footswitch controllers are nice too.

    I've demoed the 75 watter twice and really liked the sounds... except the noise gate which is set to always be on.

    When Peavey decides to make this adjustable I'll purchase the 75 or the tube 60. If they don't address it and all the other bugs going on with these amps I'll pass.

    I like my Transformer just fine.

    Why not just put some bird spikes on the Two Rock?
