The first guitar amp for the new generation of Traynors is the Custom Valve 40
(YCV40). Real tube overdrive is provided by three Sovtek 12AX7WA dual triode
preamp tubes while real tube power is provided by two Sovtek 5881WXT beam
power tubes. The internal gadgetry in this channel switching amp provides
good flexibility, but makes it very easy to get a great tone. The
combination of the tube power and the Celestion Red Label speaker is
magical. The three basic tones (clean, crunch and overdrive) are easily
defined. With great tone at low levels, and shine and punch at full tilt,
the Custom Valve 40 is already receiving rave reviews. We challenge you to
compare us to the competition. You'll love the tone and instantly recognize
Although signal-to-noise is not normally a specification that is discussed
where guitar amplifiers are concerned, the ultra-quiet Custom Valve 40 makes
it an issue. Experienced professional users will appreciate the
auto-matching tube circuit that maintains bias balance as tubes age ensuring
hum free performance. Also, the DC filaments on the preamp tubes that all
but eliminate hum. Listen carefully. Although the YCV40 has a tremendous
amount of gain it remains virtually hum free.
The unique "nouveau-retro" packaging of this amp makes it perfect for the
leading edge or historical enthusiasts. Though the look is very fresh, the
Custom Valve 40 stays true to the original Traynor line with black
vinyl-covering, chrome plated corners, all plywood construction, and a
classic front-mounted Traynor logo. The rear mounted control panel is easy
to access, yet recessed for protection. And the warranty? Yorkville's
standard two year (even if you break it!) transferable warranty*. The one
that made Traynor famous in the sixties.
* Warranty valid in Canada & United States only.
