1975 Traynor YBA-3 Custom Special


Traynor Custom Special amps don't show up quite as often, so I grabbed this one as soon as I saw it. This one is rated between 100 - 150 watts and is easily louder than my YGL-3A head. The transformers are also usable as boat anchors. This is a 1975 model, so it has a master volume which allows a lot of distortion to be dialed in. With all of the EQ options, it can be made to sound very similar to a 100 watt Marshall.
