Je suis un bloke - pardonez ma francais mal! :tongue:Ti-Ron said:I got a Peavey Bandit 112 for about 5 years, but since I change my music and tone taste alot ! I'm looking for something more warm and creamy, I love the old dirty sound of a tube amp but I don't relly know what to choose. I heard about the new traynor, but I want to know if it's a good deal (Custom valve 50 blue). I read a couple of reviews and I read mostly all the threads on this forum and nobody talk about the sound. I wanna something for blues and rock !
Thank you for your help !
P.S. I'm a frog so my english is not perfect, sorry !
I suggest you look for an OLD tube amp, like an old Traynor. They are still reasonably priced and good value for the money. Their circuits were very similar to blackface Fender amps. They sound very good when cranked up to 8 or more on the volume knob and really sound good with a boost pedal!
After you've had it for a while you can take it to a good tech and he can easily and quickly modify the circuit for you to suit your style better. Since these amps were hand wired he can do this easily in less time, which means a lower price to you!
Perhaps the very best model to look for is the YGM3. This is a single 12" speaker combo using a pair of EL84's for maybe 30 watts. Since the cabinet is large enough to get good efficiency from the speaker this is a LOUD 30watts!
Replace the speaker with a modern Eminence or Weber that has better efficiency and the amp will easily keep up with many 50 watt amps.
In a concert situation just mike it through the PA.
