K4

This product is no longer available.
Background:
In the 1970s, Yorkville Sound was the first company we know of to design and build dedicated keyboard amplification. That was their ground-breaking "RVS" line. Since then their introduction of the Traynor Bloc-100K in the early 1980s, Stage 100K in the later 80s and a succession of influential models since then has established Yorkville as a premier innovator in this field. The Traynor K series makes this amply clear.

K4 Details:
The Canadian-built Traynor K4 is an advanced, extremely versatile stereo keyboard amplifier capable of delivering a wide and varied tone pallet at high stage volume levels. Flagship of the Traynor K series, the K4 uses three separate integrated amplifiers to deliver true stereo separation of the mid and high frequencies with the added bottom end of a separate 200-Watt low-frequency amplifier driving a 12-inch woofer.

A pair of 50 watt amplifiers powers 4.5-inch midrange and 2.5-inch high-frequency drivers mounted in stereo pairs on an angled front baffle. This variation of the 2.1 speaker configuration allows a stereo image to be amply felt onstage.

One of the most versatile amplifiers of its kind, the K4 offers four channels and a switch-selectable choice of tube or solid-state input stages. The tube circuit uses a pair of 12AX7As for adding warmth and smoothness to the often-sterile sound of modern digital keyboards. Thanks to Lead Level and OD Trim controls, you can create natural tube compression and recreate the subtle dynamics that can't be properly emulated by most of today's digital workstations. For greater effect, this preset can be footswitched in and out.

The crisp, clean solid-state input stage is ideal for those times when precise definition of acoustic samples or instruments is required.

Versatile inputs allow two stereo sources to be connected to Channel One, while an additional stereo source or a microphone can be connected to Channel Two. Channel Three can handle an additional stereo keyboard or any other source including MP3 player or laptop where additional EQ control isn't required. Channels One and Two have separate 3-band EQ's for tone shaping, while Channel One offers an additional 5-position Voicing circuit with four presets - Studio, Live, Piano & Organ - plus an Off setting.

An indepenant fourth stereo input channel with its own Gain control can be found on the rear panel of the K4. It directly feeds the power amp section, bypassing the Line Out and Master volume. This versatile feature allows an external click track, drum monitor mix or monitor feed from the PA or recording console to be played through the K4 as if it were a monitor and without being in the audience or recorded mix.

Built for the rigors of the road, the Traynor K4 is manufactured using a solid, void-free plywood cabinet construction and an all-metal grille to protect the high quality speaker components.

I play electronic drums, and over the years have tried different amps for them. The K4 is by far the best one I've used, as it can handle the low frequency bass at a high volume. It's great even on stage at small to medium size venues. Great amp!

I used this amp for my Hammond XK-1. I've been buying amps for keyboards for 45 years and this one is simply the best keyboard amp I ever owned. I no longer play professionally but I wish I had had this amp years ago. Cheers on a fine piece of engineering.

Currently renting it. Was hoping I could use the left/mono input for my piano, and my pads on the other two right channels, and then send two separate lines out via the xlr's to the FOH. Unfortunately the left channel just sends whatever is in it to both L and R outs. Id rather have two separate outs because in a big room who really cares about stereo?

I am a rock guitarist who also uses a guitar synth unit. I was looking for an amp with as flat a response as possible and needed extreme versatility ... this is the amp! This amp can singe eyebrows in the front seats or be used for personal monitoring on large stages. It was important to me that what i hear coming from the amp was represented as precisely as possible in the FOH. It has a downcurve starting about 80 hz which is easily compensated for. As for the stereo effect, to those who are dissing, what do you expect as the left and right are so close together? In the FOH it will be large, don't worry, it's still useful for writing your patches and still it fattens up the depth fairly well. It's truly a great amp, i love it. BTW, ya it's a little heavy, but it will give your arms a little exercise lol!

As a monitor, It just doesn't fill that stereo requirement, maybe because the channels are sharing a woofer. It is also very very harsh sounding and is VERY heavy. I rented it twice but have moved to using two EP10 powered PA speakers on either side. Now THAT is stereo!

I always played thru monitors, With this unit you have all the controls its pretty well laid out. And for the extra money (larger unit) its worth it, I played outside in Large venue in basement rehearsal and it still sounds good, plenty of headroom, Being a Bass player myself,this unit as a well thought out frequency range, You play a drum machine and you think the drummer is actually in the box!! I play my piano thru it and sounds lovely my Synth and the low end kick ass! And with all it's input no need for a mixer anymore. Overall I'm very happy, A little heavy but my Bass amps were always heavier, But that's the price you pay for a good sounding amps totally recommend it.

Had one, traded it, but planning to get another one soon. Excellent sound reproduction, crisp and clean! Great stereo separation for stereo keyboards etc! Only issue is it's a little heavy to carry around, but the dual carry handles really help. This is an excellent amp for small gigs and rooms. I even used it for a school dance for about 100 kids, no problem at all!

Very happy. Finally the band is asking ME to turn down. It has a great stereo sound, and the smiles of appreciation you get from band mates when they hear the swirling stereo image is worth the price of admission. It has held up for 3 years now with no signs of letting up. Highly recommended.
