TraynorTraynor Reissue YGM-3$1,149.00Traynor Reissue YGM-3
Hand Wired Vintage Re-Issue Built for the player that refuses to compromise their sound, the Traynor Re-issue YGM-3 recaptures the tone, warmth, feel and responsiveness of one of the classic guitar amplifiers of all time. Built using truly hand-wired point-to-point circuitry throughout, the Traynor YGM-3 uses only high-grade fiberglass insulated wire for all connections - no printed circuit boards or surface mount components are used. Vintage Parts & Original Amp Specifications Parts for the Traynor YGM-3 Re-issue were sourced from the original suppliers and built to the original design specifications wherever possible. The paper bobbin transformers were recreated for the YGM-3 by Hammond Canada, a source for Traynor parts since the ‘60s. Premium polypropylene capacitors, Switchcraft jacks and Accutronics reverb tanks are used today, just as they were in the ‘60s and ‘70s. The original supplier even painstakingly recreated the unique grille cloth used on the original YGM-3 for the re-issue. Vintage Tube Tremolo A throw back to the day in age where almost every guitar amp had some iteration of a tremolo effect, the distinctive footswitchable YGM-3 amplitude bias tremolo can go from a swamp boogie to psychedelic with the turn of a knob, then dialed down for a truly unique and subtle jazz tone. The Legendary Jensen® Alnico Magnet Speaker The Jensen P12Q Alnico magnet speaker produces the ultimate vintage guitar tone. A truly premium speaker made using a unique combination of Aluminum, Nickel & Cobalt, the three elements (AlNiCo) that gives the speaker its name. Designed to sound their best in a premium tone-box tube amplifier like the YGM-3, the 12-inch Jensen P12Q Alnico magnet speaker delivers warmth, character and a responsiveness ideal for that ultimate blues, jazz or classic rock sound.

TraynorTraynor YCV20 WR Tube Guitar Amp$699.00Traynor YCV20 WR Tube Guitar Amp
Traynor Custom Valve 20WR answers the need for guitar players looking for superior sounding all-tube tone in a smaller, yet still feature loaded, lower powered, more manageable amplifier package. The Traynor Custom Valve 20WR is perfect for the studio or for any gig where 15 tube watts is more than enough power, but full functionality is required. Unlike competitive amplifiers in this class, the YCV20WR offers the discriminating player two discrete footswitchable channels with true independent gain and volume controls on each. A master three band EQ, effects loop (line output) as well as an internal spring reverb are all standard equipment. Additional controls include bright switch on the clean channel and boost switch on the lead channel. The Traynor Custom Valve 20WR ensures clean quiet operation by borrowing the same DC Filament and regulated power supply design as used in its big brothers, the Custom Valve 40 and Custom Valve 80's. The YCV20WR is a "Class A" power amplifier driven by three Sovtek 12AX7A's and two EL84's and features a Celestion "Greenback" G12M 12 speaker, for a truly classic tone. The internal gadgetry in this channel switching amp provides good flexibility, but makes it very easy to get a great tone. We challenge you to compare us to the competition. You will love the tone and instantly recognize the value of this amp. Features The YCV20WR is very much the same internally as our already popular YCV20. But unlike our vintage looking Traynor Custom Valve series which feature black vinyl covering, we have added Wine Red Nubtex and oatmeal grille to the already standard chromeplated corners. This combined with the Celestion Greenback speaker help give the YCV20WR a rich "boutique" look, sound and feel. The rear mounted control panel is easy to access, yet recessed for protection...
