Traynor Guitar Amplifiers, Boutique Valve Amps

Traynor Tube Guitar Amplifiers

Traynor Guitar Amplifiers are vintage or classic styled all tube guitar amplifiers. Established in 1963, Traynor guitar amplifiers were first designed by Peter Traynor, a music shop repairman. Traynor developed a bass guitar amplifier that he called the Traynor Dynabass. By the end of 1963, Traynor was selling the Dynabass amps along with matching speaker cabinets. In 1964, the Dynabass became the “Bass Master”. In 1965 the  YGA-1 (a 45 watt amp head) and the YGM-1 (a 1×12 20 watt tube combo) were created. Full production of these amps began in 1966, and the release of new models continued until the 70s. In 1976, Peter Traynor left the Company and the Traynor brand would be slowly phased out. Traynor guitar amplifiers were reintroduction in 2000 and in 2011 the YCV40 model was launched. Traynor guitar amplifiers are now manufactured in Pickering, Canada. These Boutique Valve Amps are not mass produced are not well known outside of the US.
