"I've used Traynor all my life for the tone and the dependability, and it's the versatility of YCS100H that really does it for me. It's like having three amps in one. You can go from ultra-clean to heavy distortion with the push of a button. This makes it an incredibly powerful tool for the sessions I do, and on stage with my own band."
