50 Watt All-tube Guitar Combo – Black


The Traynor YCV50B is another variation on our popular YCV 12″ based combos, but this particular amp enjoys getting dirty. Originally released as the YCV50Blue, this recent revamp of the amp is a dark and menacing all-black tolex combo with black grille cloth to boot. Hand selected EL34 power tubes are the key to the YCV50B’s gritty identity, and the tone of the all-tube circuitry is enhance with the addition of a Master Volume and a single Celestion™ Vintage 30 speaker.

The three basic tones (clean, crunch and overdrive) are easily defined and are there even at low levels thanks to the Master volume control. The voicing of the lead channel has been tweaked to provide a darker “British” tone, a natural evolution for an amp powered by EL34s as this complements the tubes’ natural tonal characteristics. The clean channel’s performance has been tailored more along classic, rich-sounding North American lines.
