Yorkville YCV80Q Traynor Custom Valve Series Tube Guitar Amps
With the Custom Valve 40 already getting rave reviews in the all-tube combo amp market, Traynor has responded to the demand by expanding the Custom Valve guitar amp line with the addition of the 4x10” Celestion™ loaded Custom Valve 80Q (YCV80Q) combo.
Designed and manufactured by Yorkville Sound, the new amplifiers offer more power and new, exciting features while maintaining the reliability and value Traynor users expect.
Two new tone-shaping controls give players unprecedented tonal variety for nearly any vintage tube tone. A 'Scoop' switch on the lead channel adds body for much heavier leads while the 'Expander' switch equalizes certain frequencies on the clean channel to create crystal clear new rhythm sounds – often simulating an acoustic-like tone from an electric guitar.
Traynor's new DynaSound direct output makes the amp sound much more like a mic'd cabinet for recording. DynaSound speaker simulation is on both the XLR direct line output and the stereo headphone for a more authentic headphone tone. A speaker defeat switch is provided for silent practice or silent direct recording.
A parallel effects loop with separate input and output trim pots for better overall effects control and a series effects loop (or loop through) between the tube pre-amp and tube power stage give the performer more flexibility over the signal path than found on other amplifiers.
The Custom Valve 80Q is vintage Traynor with black vinyl covering and chrome-plated corners, all plywood construction, and a classic front-mounted Traynor logo. The rear mounted control panel is easy to access, yet recessed for protection.
Traynor Custom Valve guitar amplifiers are distributed exclusively in the USA and Canada by Yorkville Sound and are covered under Yorkville's standard two year (even if you break it!) transferable warranty.* The same warranty that Traynor was famous for in the sixties.
* Warranty valid in U.S. and Canada only.
