Traynor recreates the classic cathode bias amp tone in the 30-watt YGL2 all-tube two-channel combo.

Classic Tone
Traynor YGL2 uses 1 12-inch Celestion Vintage 30 speaker and hand-selected EL84 tubes configured in a proven Class-A amplifier design to deliver a truly classic amp tone. Ideal for stage or studio, the YGL2 is built to meet the need of the discerning guitarist in search of a classic, yet versatile guitar amp.

Maximum Versatility
The Traynor YGL2 offers clean and overdrive channels with separate level controls, master volume and a simple bass / mid / treble tone stack.
A Mode switch relocates the tone stack relative to the gain stage, giving the YGL2 either a crisp 'American' style tube amp tone for clarity and definition (USA mode) or a grittier, more 'spongy' 'British' flavor associated with the great UK amps of the 60s and 70s ( Brit mode).

Additional Tone Shaping
The Vintage / Modern switch on the Traynor YGL2 offers additional tone shaping that offers the player a choice between a truly classic 'vintage' tube drive or a more aggressive scooped guitar tone for the guitarist seeking a more modern guitar sound.

Unmatched Reliability
The Traynor YGL2 combo is made in Canada using solid plywood cabinet construction, heavy gauge steel chassis, high quality pots and jacks.

waiting so long to get one of these. I've had a variety of tube amps and for some reason didn't get one of these even though i loved the sound when trying one at the store. Tones of tonal options, plenty of omph for small to medium (or larger) venues, takes pedals better than any other amp I've owned. I realize maybe there are better amps for pedals, but I haven't owned or tried one. This amp kills it for blues and rock.

Purchased in Oct 13, full sound and tone with loads of versatility. First unit had some power fluctuations, amp replaced and works great. I play in the clean channel 85% of the time but it can kick out the dirty stuff when asked.

This amp sound amazing. The clean tones are crisp. The gain is great. Unfortunately they use cheap pre amp tubes. I've owned this amp for over a year and I already, twice had to replace the pre amp tubes. I recommend not using the stock pre amp tubes.

Simply the best sounding amp I've ever owned. Very easy to dial in. Excellent reverb, amazing cleans and a dynamite overdrive channel. The Vintage/Modern switch on channel 2 and the Brit/USA switch on channel 1 make this a very versatile amp. It has a series effects loop and takes pedals extremely well. This amp has some serious tone. It is built like a tank with a great warranty to back it up. I sold my Boogie because there is no need for it anymore..yes its that good!

recently got this amp because the first amp I got from Long and McQuade (Fender Deville 410 red october) I just could not get a good sound out of with my pedalboard setup so I traded it in for this and could not be happier. It takes dirt pedals very well and sounds amazing cranked.. also a very loud amp , 3 out of 12 on the volume control at my band rehearsal against my other guitarists Deville 410 which has twice the wattage and 3 more speakers and my Traynor was louder then the deville and cut through more and we rehearse LOUD. Overall amazing amp for the price, sturdy as anything just remember to click on the modern switch to get some more low end unless you want a trebly overdriven vox/fender sound. Only gripe with this amp is the tubes in the back are in the open and could get damaged if you are not careful

Great sounding amp. I use it with a Dr. Z attenuator to get power-tube umph, this beast is versatile! Everything from a nice on-the-edge-of-breakup clean to tight crunch. Quite reminiscent of a Vox AC-30, this takes pedals very well (I use three different Fulltone pedals for tone and drive) and the effects loop works beautifully with my digital effects (Digitech RP 1000 for delays, chorus, tremolo, big Jeff Beck reverb). It takes a while to dial-in your tone, but it is well worth the time. Very responsive to touch, pedals and guitar volume control, very woody tone with a Strat. Maybe not your best bet for high-gain thrash sounds, but it does everything else - great country "gank", beautiful bluesy singing tones, and it does a fantastic classic English mid-push aunch. Great amp, great value!

Most versatile amp I've ever had. Real spring reverb and a pretty amazing gain channel plus a couple cool switches to play with on the clean channel. It really is a very simple yet toughly designed amp. Loud but layered and crystal clear. For the price, I'd say this may be one of the best amps out there. Only con I see is the second input so 9/10 otherwise.
