Made famous in the 60s and 70s, Traynor Tube Amps were a hit among both professional and hobby guitarists, and were known for their affordability and great tone.
The Traynor Custom Valve 15Blue answers the need for guitar players looking for superior sounding all-tube tone in a smaller, yet still feature loaded, lower powered, more manageable amplifier package. Following in the footsteps of its "blue" brother, the Custom Valve 50Blue, which is based on the YCV40WR, the YCV15Blue is based on of the extremely popular YCV20WR. Featuring a darker "British" voicing and a blue Nubtex finish, don't be fooled by it's subtle demeanor and wattage, this little amp was born to rock, and rock loudly.
The Traynor Custom Valve 15Blue is perfect for the studio or for any gig where 15 tube watts is more than enough power, but full functionality is required. Unlike competitive amplifiers in this class, the YCV15Blue offers the discriminating player two discrete footswitchable channels with true independent gain and volume controls on each. A master three band EQ, effects loop (line output) as well as an internal spring reverb are all standard equipment. Additional controls include bright switch on the clean channel and boost switch on the lead channel.
The YVC15Blue ensures clean quiet operation by borrowing the same DC Filament and regulated power supply design as used in its big brothers, the Custom Valve 40 and Custom Valve 80's. The YCV15Blue is a 'Class A' power amplifier is driven by three 12AX7A's and two EL84's.
An all plywood enclosure and cloth wrapped heavy gauge perforated grille ensure years of trouble free performance. The YCV15Blue is fully loaded with professional features such as an external speaker jack with internal speaker defeat switch, tube compensated headphone and DI outputs and a long Accutronics™ dual spring reverb tank.
The internal gadgetry in this channel switching amp provides good flexibility, but makes it very easy to get a great tone. We challenge you to compare us to the competition. You will love the tone and instantly recognize the value of this amp.
