    I tried a sweet sounding old Traynor the other day. The Guitar Mate - see more info here http://www.traynoramps.com/products.asp?type=11&cat=66&id=393

    Anyone else digging the tones of these little amps? It's actually pretty big for only 20 watts, but it's not very loud.

    This amp is on consignment in a local store.

    Features
    Dual inputs, volume, bass, treble, reverb, tremolo intensity and speed controls, 12" guitar speaker
    Approximate Serial Number
    0250 to 0600s = 1966 to 1969
    Years Made
    1966 - 1969

    Great amps. Main downside is they are quite big and heavy - that contributes to one of the upsides, which is they're extremely robust. With the combination of being relatively undervalued and not well known by the general public, they're great amps if you have to leave them unattended for a while, as they don't disappear like a Marshall or Fender might.

    Great amps. I have two.

    What are they asking for the amp?

    And is it true that Camrose used to be Umea, Sweden? Continental drift is getting WAY out of hand.

    A great simple point to point amp for modding IMO.

    I have a '69...I didn't really like the tone stock. It was too bright for me and didn't have a great gain tone when pushed (the stock Marsland speaker sounds particularly awful)

    But a big point to point mod/overhaul from James Peters, and replacing the speaker with an MC90, has turned this Traynor into the best sounding combo amp I've ever played through...it's my #1 for sure, has been for years now.
