Although originally designed as a bass head, the Traynor YBA-1 rapidly became the voice of guitar players looking for massive tone and drive from their amp throughout the 60s and 70s. The new limited edition 50th Anniversary 40-watt all-tube Traynor YBA-1 Tribute head is owes its heritage and tone to the original while being updated for a whole new generation of guitar players.
The four separate inputs have been designed with varying input sensitivities allowing for radically different tones from each. By design, Channel One inputs deliver higher gain and drive than the darker and warmer Channel Two inputs. Each pair of inputs have their own highly responsive volume controls, and inputs can be stacked to allow both inputs to be blended simultaneously for that massive vintage drive tone.
Four master tone controls (Treble, Bass, High and Low Range Expanders) make it easy to dial in the perfect sound. While 'Treble' and 'Bass' act as traditional tone controls, the Range Expanders function more as 'Mid' and 'Presence' Controls.
An output attenuator located on the back of the head allows the Traynor YBA-1 Tribute Head to be tamed for use in studio, rehearsal hall or smaller stages. Five level settings (at 40, 20, 10, 5 and 2.5 watts) allow the master level to be controlled while leaving the characteristic tone of the amp relatively unchanged.
