Yes but alot of people don't need 100 watts. They must see a market for it. Its got to be cheaper than the bigger head.

Tony...
Speaking of cheaper has anyone noticed how much difference there is is in price between USA stores and Canada. Musicians Buy is selling the YCS50 for $699 shipping in. I am going this weekend to Sault Michigan a 15 minute drive to look at one. He wants $680 which includes the Michigan sales tax. The dealer here wants MSRP $999 and didn't seem willing to budge. The Canadian doller is worth more. Why is a Canadian Amp cheaper in the States???

After I started this thread, I went and bought a YCV50BLUE without ever getting a chance to try out the YCS50-just too impatient to wait I guess! BUT...I can't imagine needing anything other than my Blue-I just love it-so far it does everything I need it to. Now I'm saving up for the 1x12 extension cab to go with it.

Yah like he said!:rockon2:

The more I play it the easier it gets, haven't had to skip work yet:smile:
I just bought one for my son but it has a problem with internal feedback. With the gain on the distorted channel set about half way it starts to squeal. I called Traynor and they confirmed that there is a problem with the circuit board in these amps. The board can be contaminated and the signal bleeds over to another trace. I am going to send it back and they are going to rework the circuit board. He mentioned that it is a high gain amp and it will feedback but the gain etc. has to be pretty well maxed before this should happen. He also said it will sound much better after the repair, hard to imagine because right now it sounds awesome. Maybe something to watch out for.

My dealer told there had been a recall his first shipment was turned around in shipping and sent back for repairs, maybe yours got missed.

Mine will feedback but only if the gain is cranked while the channel volume is up high as well.

Well it's been back for a while now and all the problems were taken care of. They even paid all the shipping. No more squealing with the gain cranked. And the amp is noticeably cleaner now.

I had a YCS50 for about a month and took it back. Great amp but I could not dial in a clean tone I liked. I posted a long review in a thread on it.

Thanks for the info Tarl and I did read it all !
I'm very interested in the YCS50 and while tone evaluation is subjective, the info you brought is interesting. I've tried one about two weeks ago but not for very long (about 20 minutes). Did'nt have the time to test everything, mainly the 15 watts option, but found the clean up to my taste !

My sons and I tried out a YCS 50H a couple of weeks ago. Wanted REALLY badly to love it, but did not. Might have been the cab we were thru at L&M but it sounded like a blanket over the amp, no matter how long we tweaked it or how loud we turned it. My son complained of similar on our YCV50 on the drive channel with boost engaged, tho I never heard the problem myself - but it was clearly the case on this YCS. No sale.

I recently traded our YCV50 but only because we need something a little more modern sounding at home. Otherwise, it's been an excellent amp and I would highly recommend one to anyone.

I bought the YCS50H about a month ago, There are a lot of options on this head... I replaced the power and preamptubes with JJKT77 power tubes and JJECC83s on V1, tung-sol 12AX7 new production on V2 and PI. sounds amazing!!! I run it through a 4x12 with WGS veteran 30 and 2x12 with WGS veteran 30's... also I'll be trying Tung-sol EL34B power tubes to improve the cleans. This is the kind of amp to have to spend sometime trying different settings to get the sweet spot to your liking.
