For the third consecutive year, music-product retailers voted the innovative Peavey Vypyr Series modeling guitar amplifiers the Amplifier Line of the Year in Musical Merchandise Review (MMR) magazine’s annual Dealers’ Choice Awards.

“The Vypyr has become one of the best-selling guitar amplifier lines in the history of Peavey Electronics,” said Hartley Peavey, founder and CEO of Peavey Electronics Corporation. “The unique combination of patented analog and digital technologies in the Vypyr Series gives guitar players an amazing range of tones and versatility, with highly accurate models of classic amps and effects. We’re honored to once again earn our dealers’ resounding approval for our Vypyr Series.”

Peavey also won the Dealers’ Choice Award for Sound Reinforcement Line of the Year, an honor the company has received from retailers in four of the past six years for advancements in technology such as the Versarray line array loudspeaker system and more.
The Peavey Vypyr Series dramatically redefines the power and scope of modern guitar amplification. Vypyr amplifiers are based on powerful 32-bit, floating-point SHARC processors that enable highly detailed, accurate modeling as well as vastly enhanced flexibility and features than ever before available in guitar amplification.

Peavey Vypyr Series amplifiers feature up to 24 amp channel models—two channels of 12 popular amps for the first time anywhere—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.

The MMR Dealers’ Choice award joins a collection of other prestigious awards for Peavey’s Vypyr Series, including Product of the Year and Instrument Amp of the Year from the Music & Sound Retailer, and the Gold Award for Overall Value from Guitar World.
Peavey Vypyr amps are endorsed by hard rock and metal’s top guitar players, including Corey Beaulieu of Trivium, Matt Tuck of Bullet For My Valentine and Phil Demmel of Machine Head.

PEAVEY® 6505® PLUS 112 GUITAR AMPLIFIER VOTED ‘BEST NEW AMP OF 2010’

Musical-instrument retailers across North America voted the Peavey® 6505® Plus 112 guitar amp the Best New Instrument Amplifier of 2010 in the annual Music & Sound Awards, presented by the Music & Sound Retailer.
“The Peavey 6505 Series has earned its place in rock history as the guitar amplifiers of choice for an extensive range of top rock and country artists,” said Hartley Peavey, Founder and CEO of Peavey Electronics Corporation. “We took on the challenge of creating a 1×12 combo version of the full-size 6505 Plus amplifier that lived up to its high standards for tone, and we’re proud of the results. We’re honored that our dealers share our enthusiasm for the Peavey 6505 112 Plus combo.”
The Peavey 6505 artist roster includes contemporary metal stars such as Machine Head, Trivium, Bullet For My Valentine, and The Devil Wears Prada, rockers Ted Nugent and Black Stone Cherry, country artist Bo Garrett (Montgomery Gentry) and many more.
The Peavey 6505 Plus 112 combo harnesses the full gain and legendary tone of the Peavey 6505 Series into a 1×12, 60-watt combo-amp configuration for the first time. Five select 12AX7 preamp tubes and a pair of 6L6GC power-amp tubes provide the tonal foundation for the amplifier, while patented circuitry such as Peavey’s Resonance and Presence controls let players personalize its legendary tone. Both the Lead and Rhythm channels feature independent three-band EQ, pre/post gain controls and Presence and Resonance adjustment. The Rhythm channel also includes a footswitchable Crunch boost.
The 6505 Plus 112 combo also features the Peavey MSDI microphone-simulated direct interface, which eliminates the need for miking by allowing users to route the amp’s signal directly to a recording device or mixing console. Additional features include three-spring reverb, effects loop and external speaker outputs, plus a 12” Sheffield® loudspeaker in a sealed-back cabinet that creates maximum resonance and sound projection.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then.
