Yorkville: Bass Combos
DynaBass 400 – 400-watt Tube Pre / 1x15, tweeter
Unmatched versatility and solid tone are ensured by the
Traynor DynaBass 400’s combination of tube and
solid-state topographies in the signal path. Built for the
player that may need to unleash a more aggressive bass tone, the
DynaBass 400 offers the ability to add subtle tube warmth
or full on tube drive to a clean bass tone on demand.
A separate parallel tube overdrive circuit with an innovative
''''wet / dry'''' balance control that allows the perfect blend
of overdriven signal to clean bass tone, from 100% drive to
pristine and anywhere in between. This allows as much growl or
as little “tube warmth” as required to be incorporated into your
sound while maintaining a clean central tone to maintain
definition and clarity.
A switchable limiter and a compressor circuit with user
definable threshold control have been added to the tube input
circuit as well.
The five-band EQ, with a semi-parametric sweepable mid, and a
continuously variable Scoop* control
offers one of the most versatile tone stacks found on a bass
*The Scoop function sweeps from a flat
frequency response to a mid-frequency dip at 300 Hz. As you
increase beyond the 1/2-way point on the control you begin to
boost both the top end and bottom end to your tone, in addition
to further reducing the midrange level.
The DynaBass 400 bass combo offers a front panel wet /
dry control for the effects return, footswitchable tube
overdrive, footswitchable effects return and a pre / post
selectable XLR balanced Tube DI output. Speakon™ and 1/4-inch
extension speaker outputs have been added for the addition of an
external bass cabinet.
A front panel tuner / mute switch kills the signal to the
amplifier (and DI output) for silent tuning with the front panel
mounted 1/4" tuner out jack.
