Traynor Delivers North American Made All-Tube Combo

June 29, 2011
imgTraynor Amps introduces the all new Traynor YGL1 15-watt all-tube 1x12 combo. Designed to be the ideal tone monster combo for stage and studio, the YGL1 enters the market at a price point unheard of for a North American made all tube combo.

Simple Gain, Bass, Mid, Treble and Master controls make it easy to dial in that perfect tube sound. The three stage mode switch makes the YGL1 one of the most versatile small tube amps in this class.

Built for affordability but not lacking in features, the YGL1 includes the popular USA/Brit/Pure switch found on the increasingly popular Traynor DarkHorse. This mode switch actually relocates the tone stack relative to the gain, giving the YGL1 either a crisp ‘American’ style tube amp tone for clarity and definition (USA) or with a grittier, more ‘spongy’ ‘British’ flavor associated with the great UK amps of the 60s and 70s ( Brit mode).

The third option is a "Pure" mode which bypasses the tone stack entirely, delivering a mid and overall gain boost allowing for the most direct signal path possible between your fingers and the speaker.

The Traynor YGL1 is made in Canada using a solid plywood cabinet construction and a single 12-inch Celestion Greenback speaker.

YGL1 – MSRP (Canada) $699 CDN
YGL1 – MSRP (USA) $849 USD
