Huge midrange output for the rabid rocker!
The Traynor YCV80Q Custom Valve 4x10 Combo Amp makes your music come alive in the studio or on stage as only a tube amp can. Nothing matches the rich, creamy distortion and complex harmonics of all-tube output. With its complement of 4 - 5881s in the power stage and 3 - 12AX7s in the preamp wedded to a quartet of 10" Celestion Tube 10 speakers, the honk and scronk are awe-inspiring. A Scoop switch on the lead channel adds body while an Expander switch on the clean channel opens up a range of crystalline rhythm tones. The included footswitch toggles channels and activates boost.Traynor's DynaSound direct output gives the combo the sound of a miked cab for studio work. Speaker simulation on the XLR direct and headphone outputs. A speaker defeat switch is handy for silent direct recording or practice. The parallel effects loop with separate trim pots offers greater effects control while a series effects loop gives you signal path flexibility. Vintage Traynor looks with the classic front-mounted logo on a rugged vinyl-clad plywood cab with chrome corners. The Traynor YCV80Q has a recessed rear control panel that's easily accessed while staying out of harm's way.

This amp came with 4x12ax7 Sovtek preamp tubes and 4xsSovtek 5881 power amp tubes. I was happy with the sound, but could not believe the difference that a tube changeout made on this amp.I had one of the power tubes leak, so rather than just replace one, I figured I would go for it. I put in 3xTungSol 12ax7's on the pre and 4xJJ Tesla 6l6gc on the power end. I thought I had bought a new amp and forgot, but no, I looked at it and it was the same Traynor, but sounded twice as good with the new tubes. Very smooth almost Marshall like with my 79 Les Paul Stadard. So folks if you are going to replace tubes I find this combo is dynamite.
After owning Marshall DSL401, Line6 spyder, and Fender Deville, I have finally found the "right" amp. I decided to let my ears to the choosing and not the name on the amp. The clean channel is awesomley clear and quiet and the distortion has a wide range of sounds depending on how you adjust the gain/master/volume dials. Only things I would add to make it better would be the scoop/boost buttons. They are very tiny and difficult to find in dim light. I also would like them to be on the footswitch. (I am thinking of adding a few parts and wiring out the switches to a footswitch.) I play a 79LesPaul Standard and a Parker Nitefly Mojo. Both guitars have requested that I keep this amp.....
This amp has incredible clean tones and a very versatile drive channel. With the mid scoop you can get a very wide range of tones. The clean channel can not be touched. Awesome value. If you're looking at the peavey classics or fender hot rods and reissues, don't bother. This amp is far superior in quality and versatility. You'll get that 5150 type distortion to the fender sparkling clean tones. Add casters and you're rolling.
Well I gave value a 3 only because musicians friend is ripping you i off. I bought my 4X10 80 watt through a local dealer for about 680 as well as a jackson dkmg for the same which is now fender owned and priced up. Business is business i suppose. Anyways i play and listen to mainly death metal and surprising this amp works great for that as well as almost anything else in range. Low tunings may give the impressions of blown speakers in small spaces but the celestions it came with have lasted me a few years now. Not to mention the 10s work great for the lower sound. Distortion features are pretty simple but you can find some heavy tones for sure. Clean is unmatched in my eyes. Reverb works great on both lead and clean tones. I suggest buying this amp in one form or another although they dont make heads i bought the 4x10 to combine with a cab and achieve quite a powerstack.
I bought this amp slightly used and didn't know much about it but I know when I first started playing it I couldn't believe how great it sounded! I play anything from honky tonk to blues or hard rock and this amp does them all! I've owned about 30 tube amps and right now I currently have about 6 including fenders and two rocks and a Marshall plexi, and this thing holds its own! The controls for this amp really work great and the and features of a brightness and expander, scoop and boost buttons make this amp a versatile tone machine! Especially the expander switch. I don't know whats in a expander but it makes the tone so rich and spanky every amp should come with one!! I play this live now instead of my fender deluxe or my bandmaster, I can't believe I like this amp better in a live setting!! It's crazy this amp ain't 3 grand!! I love the amp with a telecaster playing any kind of country it nails any country tone out there! If you can get ahold of one of these buy it up!! I never heard anything but good about traynor but now after playing one I'm a believer!!
- Was this a gift?:
I love this amp! I got it a few weeks ago, and can't believe the value. I play a lot of blues and classic rock, and this amp fits the bill perfectly. All the classic "Brit" and "Tweed" sounds. Very high quality, too. I only wish the "expander", "brightness, and "mid cut" buttons were foot-switchable. Oh, well. Nothing's perfect... but this comes very close.
great clean tone and distorted flexibility and response. the class A watts really shine through. would expect to pay twice as much.
This amp is way better than I expected. The scoop is nice for metal. not nu-metal. Very warm sound.Recommended.
I've owned this amp for about 4 years and it has been my "everything amp". As a guitarist if you're in a cover band and need many different great sounds, this is a good start. The clean is terrific, and you can dial in overdrive to huge amounts of distortion. The expander on the clean sounds great. The thing is a tank and that means its heavy but that also means you can drop it on its head out of the back of a van and it still works, I know, that's what I did. My only complaint is that it's boost button isn't adjustable it pushes you into some serious gain and volume, don't think it's like having a 3 channel amp. This amp for the money is a fantastic value. I've had many compliments from musicians on the sound of this thing.
I owned a deville 212 and loved it but wanted to buy a stack. I sold my deville but the stack I bought didn't work properly and I returned it so I bought the Traynor. The store had the 212 but I wanted to try the 410. I wish now I bought the 212. The 410 is not nearly as loud as my deville was. The 212's impeadence allows more power the speakers. All in all the amps good but I'd buy the 212.
Bought the amp 8 months ago and am very happy with it. The clean channel's awesome tube tone alone is worth its price. The dirty channel isn't as good as the clean, but still is very good. Features are A plus and the 4x10 Celestions sound awesome. Most versatile amp I have seen anywhere.
The best amplifier I have ever owned. I haved owned vintage twin reveverbs , a 64 Vibroluxe, Marshalls, Sunn, you name it. Nothing comes alive on stage or studio like this one. Some amps may have a few more bells and whistles but bar none my traynor burns them all. My Rhythm guitar player heard mine bought one the next day. at least five other guitar players i know have bought new Traynors since they heard mine. No matter what style you play do it on a Traynor!
I purchased the YCV80Q about 3 months ago. The 1st one had a problem. It started making crackling sounds. Even when there was nothing plugged into it and it was doing it on both channels. So I called Yorkville and told them my problem. They said that it sounded like a bad solder joint and sent me a new amp to my home and a shipping label to send the other one back. It didn't cost me a cent. the 2nd amp works great! Yorkville is very easy to work with, I highly recommend them. They really do stand behind their product. I have been playing guitar for 38 years and have owned a lot of guitars and amps. The YCV80Q is one of the best sounding amps that I have ever owned. It has plenty of power and the clean channel has fantastic tone. I play Blues and Rock and this amp is perfect for any sound that I want. If you are looking for a GREAT tube amp, try them all but before you buy be sure that you try out the YCV80Q. You won't be disappointed. If I ever lost mine I would definitely buy another one.
The good; sound, looks vintage, price.The Bad; heavy, i would replace the celestion speakers but there still good.The Ugly: This is my 3rd one as they keep malfunctioning but i was told it was recalled and should be fine now.
I recently purchased my Traynor YCV80Q Custom Valve 4x10 Combo and it is just amazing. The crystal clear clean tones I get blow fender products away. I used to own the Fender Hot Rod Deville 212 but once I played the traynor I traded up. The distortion is pretty good, I would recommend a boss distortion pedal with this.
This traynor amp can kill all those other tube amp.Clean = CrystalCrunch/Distortion = Perfect for anything even nu-metal
This is by far the best amplifier in the 4x10 format out there. Period. It has an unbeatable warranty, and built like a tank. Tones are fantastic. You will be very pleased with the drive channel. Both channels have independent eq's. Clean can't be touched. Has a very wide range of tonal possibilities and built with quality components. Compared to the Peavey classic, fender concert reverb, twin and bassman. Can't touch this amp. Buy it.
I have had this amp for about 6 months now, and love it. It made my Squier Strat sound like a good guitar. And it makes my BC Rich Warlock sound incredible. The clean channel is really clear and sounds great when I hook up my Boss Metal Zone pedal into it for a heavy distortion. The Distortion channel is really nice and is everything you want in a distortion channel on a tube amp. Not to mention Traynors warranty "Even if you break it" policy. Let the drunkeness roll. The guy I got mine off is kickin himself in the #$@ now, as he has had nothing but problems with his new Fender amp. 80W has never been so loud! Well worth whatever you pay for it.
This is a great amp. It's beauty is in it's simplicity of operation. This amp doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles, but it does offer classic all valve tone.
