hehe, no I am using firefox, the new version as well
why on earth does everyone f*ck up traynor amps by sending them to some guy to mod? they sound fuggin GREAT as they are...
I own a '66 100w marshall, a vintage 50w hiwatt, an ampeg V4B & a blackfaced SF twin reverb...and can attest that a stock traynor will go head to head with all of them. they are right up there with the best of the best.
my buddy has a YSR1 I have played through, it is a fantastic amp stock. the bias modulating tremolo is better than any other, including anything past a brown era fender. IMO
Agree on the Trem. I wouldnt want to take that baby out the circuit. Its the absolute best.As far as modyfying the YSR-1. I agree, its a great amp stock-really great with the right choice of cabinet for Classic rock sounds. Fortunately , I was able to get another Traynor-the YGL3A to keep bone stock.Like it or dont, many of the Traynors are generally considered platforms for mods.They are great, yes, but they were built to a price-point, and some of the work on the inside is pretty avevrage on the later amps like my YSR-1. No offence, but a stock 70's YSR1 Traynor sounding as good as a ' 66 Marshall Plexi?...doubt it. The YSR-1 amp can sound better than it is with Plexi/JTM mods, thats pretty much aa fact thats taken for granted, and why many informed people use these amps to modify. In this world, there are some things to be reverenced and left stock. If i had a 59 Bassman in nice shape, would I put on a three prong power chord? NO, I would like, run it through a power conditioner. The world needs a great vintage platform for Mods , so a poor man can have a vintage plexi at prices less than those super exotic and costly botique clones.Well, fortunately the world has it-Traynor amps!!I'm not knocking the stock YSR-1 by the way, as I said before, its a great amp, but I see no harm in doing something to these amps thats reversible down the road for any future owner.
