As the Power Supply on my 1967 Selmer is starting to pack up I decided I needed to get something to use whilst it goes for repairs. It had to be Tube, a bit more modern, but simple. Not too worried about Modern Hi Gain sounds as I don't need them live.
After a conversation with my friend Irene Ketikidi she told me she had an amp for sale and, as we're friends, she would sell it to me for a slight reduction in her original asking price! This was her main Live Amp until she got an Endorsee deal with Orange, so this thing has travelled to more places than a lot of people have!!
So, on Wednesday, I travelled up to London to go get it and here it is:-
It's a Traynor YCV 40, Handbuilt in Toronto, Canada. It sounds great, really bright cleans and Crunch and takes nicely to having the Gain turned up. The Clean Channel works really well when driven with my old Zoom Stomps, especially the Hyper-Lead.
Sound-wise it's very similar to an old Fender Twin that I used to use years ago!!
Here's a random YT clip of one:-

I just heard about this and thought it looks like quite a good 'Space saving' solution! Hopefully I'll get one to play with in a couple of weeks!
What do you guys think?

....that I haven't been around for a week or so?
Well I'll tell you where I was anyway. I got asked at very, very short notice to go Tech/Roadie/Sound Desk for a friends band on a small Tour.
They did 1 show in each Country a day! We went to France, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland. I also got to meet up with my older Bro who lives and works in Zurich!
Very tiring but really good fun. It reminded me that I need to get out and play more as I miss that feeling of a Live Show!!
