Blue

tried out the 50 Blue at my local store and decided then and there it was the amp for me!
Great tube sound for blues and classic heavy rock, nice looking built like a tank and Canadian made to boot!
I tried out various other tube amps and prefered the 50 Blue to any of them for the money.
They seem to be getting good reviews too and if they are built like the Traynors of old,they will last a lifetime.:rockon2:

We get a fair amount of Yorkville equipment and other brand name gear as product placement in our business. On various weekends I've tried out the 50 Blue and came away quite impressed.. also tried the 20 Red model... good amps. I hope to get my hands on either model soon. I think they do quite well for rock and blues applications. I too consider the build quality to be decent; do you know otherwise for a fact, CocoTone?

I was a Mountain Music in Hamilton a week ago and they had the new traynors there.An employee was playing it and it sounded awesome.They were impressed and so was I.Real vintage looking

The colors are vintage, the two rows of knobs sort of spoils it. I'm looking forward to hearing it, I'll be in Hamilton next week, where is mountain music (i'm guessing its on the mountain, but that's a pretty big area...)

Mountain Music.705 Mohawk rd east Hamilton.First time there and I got lost!Its on the mountain.Zdogma you are right,those 2 knob rows are kinda funky.Took a while to sink in that it was a traynor,thought it was a peavey or some booteek amp.Get a map of the area and you will be fine.

I think he's referring to this new one, not the Blue:

I havent tried it out yet, or seen one in the guitar shop.
Yep, that's the one...I really like the look of the blue the best, but I trust the guy running my local L&M, and he says the new one will be worth the wait. I like the idea of the expander, which apparently gives a pretty good acoustic simulation on top of an already-great clean/dirty line-up. I hope that when they finally get them I can A/B the YCS against the YCV.

One of the most important and desirable features about that amp is it switchable class. You're gonna be able to really drive that in A Class and that will prolly sound fantastic!
Of course swicthable class amps are usually more expensive.

You aren't giving us much to go on,I am sure others like myself would like you to elaborate on your comments.

Thanks,

Well, if your looking for first hand proof, I don't have any. Its just a hunch.
I have read that there are reliability probs with some of the other models, and they seem to show up used quite a bit already. I do know, that the ones I have tried cannot hold a candle to my old Traynors, with good glass and speakers, plus the reliability factor is a known quantity with the vintage beasts. The new trannies cannot compare with the old Hammond iron either.
I am old school, so sue me.
