I have owned this amp for years and the sound seems to be getting better with age. This amp and speaker have a loose bottom that some adjust for this with the EQ. It is impressive to have two channels in an amp this size (three if you count the boost). It is super portable and rather loud compared to it's size. Sounds great at low vol or wide open. Some feel that a 15 watt amp like this is just a pratice amp but this amp is great for giging in small clubs. All I can tell you is I'm continueing to enjoy this amp and if it broke tomorrow, I'm looking for another one. Good job Traynor

The good: the wine red version of this amp is simply gorgeous to look at. And nice features like channel switching and effects loop, which 15-watt competitors lacked.The bad: Overall tone is flat and lifeless. Overdrive channel produces un-harmonic and buzzy tones. Other users recommend changing tubes and/or speaker. I don't think one should have to change the tubes on a new amp to get a good tone. I had high hopes for this amp but decided it had to be returned.

Warm up!

By Telemonade

from Indianapolis, IN

This is a great little amp. Plenty of punch and midrange, especially with the mids cranked. When backed down, it can do a decent job of mimicking a fender-style scooped amp. When I first plugged into this amp, I was not sold. It was muddy and grainy. I forgot one major rule to tube amps- LET IT WARM UP. After the tubes start cooking a little bit, the depth comes in. It is a very solid and versatile amp. One thing that comes to mind is the jack of all trades, master of none. You can play tons of different genres with this amp, but it doesn't perfect any genre in my opinion. If this is your first tube amp, I say go for it. If you want an amp that isn't a fender copy, vox copy, marshall copy etc, go for it. Don't be afraid to really fine tune the EQ. And also don't be afraid to stick a tube screamer in front of it!

This is a killer amp

By Traynor Man

from Texas

See all my reviews

I purchased this a few weeks ago. I wish I had bought it long ago. This thing is amazing! I can tweak my guitar to get some of the best sounds I have ever had. I bought this to play in a rock band. It has not trouble rising above it all. The chime quality is wonderful. The bass and even the Mids are also fantastic. I have it hooked to an extension speaker that is in a Roland amp and it really widens and makes the sound so full. Great amp.

Trouble with Traynor

By Bluedog

from Indianapolis

I bought one of these looking for a small tube amp for recording and small rooms. When it arrived it sounded horrible. Nothing helped. I had to ship it back to Traynor and it was six weeks before I got it back. It sounds better now, but if you are looking for an amp with a boutique sound, this isn't it. It sounds like a $300 solid state amp. A few mods by a qualified tech and it could sound great. The design people at Traynor missed the mark.

Traynor 20 WR

By bryan@62

from virginia

See all my reviews

This trynor is a must have in any guitar players assortment of amps and axes. The tone is awesome, the power kicks a** but you could play slow blues or a soulful Sade song with her too. It sings like no tomorrow and if you got the tweed tolex the look can't be beat either. Remeber to use the second channel if you got a powerful guitar, or any thing really with hot pickups. I just got a RD reissue and those dirty fingers are the most powerful humbuckers this old hippie ever heard. At first I was only using channel 1 and it did get a little too muddy for my taste too easily. Channel 2 on the other hand seems to give you more control over the sound, or the power of the sound. Awesome amp, really just fabulous. Bryan

GREAT AMP

By Steven

Ask me a question

Traynor makes some of the best tube amps in the world and this is no exception. My only regret is they took out the Celestion Greendak and put in a celestion sound...hence the less tham perfect markings. If you can get your hans on one on these with a greenback you will have the ULTIMATE tube amp. With a celestion 30 you've got a really great amp.

cool rocker

By clamboy

from Japan

If you like Sovtek output tubes, this amp is a ten. It sounds fantastic and the flexibility is remarkable, due in no small part to the greenback speaker. If, however, like me you prefer a NOS tube compliment, be prepared to partially disassemble this box. In order to replace the power tubes the front grille and speaker must be removed. Not a big deal if you

Great recording and practice amp!

By FusionThang

from Atlanta, GA

See all my reviews

First off, I play jazz and fusion. I'm not looking for a lot of distortion. Just warmth and texture in an amp. After lugging my unbelievably heavy Boogie Mk. to jams and rehearsals, I decided I needed something lighter to practice with. I looked at the Blues Juniors, but I have had back luck with them in the past with rattles and hums (hmmm, good cd title...). Anyway, I did some research and kept reading good things about these amps. I was not disappointed. Great tone, very warm. I use the channel 1 mainly as a boost with slight amounts of gain, as it is pretty harsh. However, channel 2 is beautiful! This amp has made me play more, it's that good. I did put JJ tubes in it as I had read others do, and I'll have to admit, it did sound better. And as to the claims of "quiet" operation...well, it's not bad but it sure has a little hum in the background. Not bad though. I love this amp. I've already started recording with it. If the club is the right size, I'll be gigging with it too. I love the Boogie and its headroom, but this amp has got a certain character that is infectious. You can't go wrong with this amp!

Found It

By northtown712

from Sioux City, Ia

See all my reviews

I have had Fender HotRod Deluxe ( I did like it but it blew my ears off), Blues Jr (A little too brittle),Randall (little flat), Line 6 30W (too digital), and several marshalls.... I like the sound of David Gilmour and Mark Knopfler...I just couldn't find the right one... until this baby... I love it...and am so very happy with it... I was surprised to find a standby switch on it.... I don't use the lead channel 1 much but when I got it I wasn't expecting it to sound any better than the blues jr.. Wrong.. it is way sweeter... It does record nice.. The red looks more like a piece of fine furniture... I don't like the way it looks on line but in person it humbles me. Great Job Traynor... I'll keep this for a long time. The box was in BAD shape when I got it but flawless in my Home.

This is by far the best 15W Combo

By Joey-HVh.x

from Philadelphia

See all my reviews

Sold my Pro Junior and Vintage Princeton and had money left over after the traynoe purchase. This amplifier is the best small combo for around $500. No 60 cycle hum and great tone.
