Overview

This North American built all-tube 200W bass amp head stays true to its vintage roots. The YBA200 is a fan-cooled 200W all-tube bass head powered by four Sovtek 6550WE power tubes amplifying the 2 Sovtek 12AX7A and one 12AU7 that make up the preamp section. In true Traynor tradition, there are no semiconductors in the signal path, glass epoxy circuit boards, solid plywood box construction, solid component selection and an all-metal chassis ensure years of unmatched reliability. Traynor covers the YBA200 with a 2-year unlimited warranty.

Basic controls you'd expect to see appear on the front panel of any high-end bass amp include input gain, master volume control and a 3-band master EQ section. You'll also see innovative new tone shaping features like Scoop, 'Range', and 'Resonance'.

The Scoop knob sweeps from a flat frequency response to a mid-frequency dip at 400 Hz and can be completely bypassed from a separate front panel on/off switch. The Range control shifts the overall tone shape and general tonal characteristics of the master EQ section of the amp.

The unique Resonance Control, when used with a high quality and responsive loudspeaker enclosure, like the Traynor YBX1510, allows the player to dial in the exact bass response desired. It's easy to get any sound from a tight and punchy tone to a looser, more 'vintage-tube' sound with the Traynor YBA200. The Resonance control actually controls the damping factor of the amplifier's output stage, and allows the player to take full advantage of the tone of the loudspeaker enclosure.

The use of toroidal transformers reduces the weight of the YBA200 to less than 41 pounds, much lighter than many other all-tube high-power bass amps in this class.

The YBA200 has high and low level 1/4-inch inputs, a 1" tuner output with a switchable mute function that mutes the entire rig and kills the DI output when tuning. The front panel mounted XLR D.I. output has a one-touch ground lift, a 20dB pad and is switchable pre or post EQ.

The Traynor Bass amps take their place among the vintage Traynor, with the familiar black vinyl covering and black metal corners, all plywood construction, and a classic front-mounted Traynor logo, just like on their guitar counterparts, the Traynor Custom Valve Series. And of course they come with Yorkville's famous 2-year (even if you break it!)* transferable warranty

As the desire for real tube tone continues to grow among bassists, Yorkville responds to the demand by re-introducing Canadian-made Traynor Tube Amplifiers!

Made famous in the 60's and 70's, Traynor Tube Amps were a hit among both professional and hobby bass players, and were known for their affordability and great tone. And, they were tough as nails!!

To relaunch the popular Traynor bass amplifier line is a fan-cooled 200-watt all-tube bass head, the YBA200. Powered by four Sovtek 6550WE power tubes amplifying the two Sovtek 12AX7A and one 12AU7 that make up the preamp section. In true Traynor tradition, there are no semiconductors in the signal path.

In addition to the famous Traynor 'Scoop' control, two unique tone-shaping controls appear on the YBA200, making it one of the most versatile bass amplifiers in its class.

The Range control shifts the overall tone shape and general tonal characteristics of the master EQ section of the amp. The completely new Resonance Control, when used with a high quality and responsive loudspeaker enclosure like the Traynor YBX1510, allows the player to dial in the exact bass response from their rig that they want to hear from their amplifier. It's easy to get any sound from a tight and punchy tone to a looser, more 'vintage-tube' sound with the Traynor YBA200. The Resonance control actually controls the damping factor of the amplifier's output stage, and allows the player to take full advantage of the tone of his loudspeaker enclosure.

The YBA200 has high and low level 1/4" inputs, a 1/4" tuner output with a switchable mute function that mutes the entire rig and kills the DI output when tuning. The front panel mounted XLR D.I. output has a one-touch ground lift, a 20dB pad and is switchable pre or post EQ.

To compliment the retro look and sound is the 400-watt Traynor YBX1510 bass enclosure, the perfect mate to the YBA200 bass head. The YBX1510 is loaded with a compression driver, a single 15-inch and two 10-inch speakers, custom designed by Eminence specifically for this cabinet. - Designed and tuned as a complete unit, the YBX1510 delivers more tone than any separate two-ten cabinet stacked with a single 15-inch box can provide. The YBX1510 has two separate ported chambers in its enclosure; each tuned to compliment each other while taking specific advantage of their individual component's strengths.

The YBX1510's two-ten section with the compression driver delivers clarity, definition and the majority of the bottom end, while the single 15-inch driver provides punch and low-mid presence. The compression driver has an L-pad volume control so as much or as little of the high frequency driver can be dialed in as required.

The Traynor Bass amps take their place among the vintage Traynor with the familiar black vinyl covering and black metal corners, all plywood construction, and a classic front-mounted Traynor logo, just like on their guitar counterparts, the Traynor Custom Valve Series. And of course they come with Yorkville's famous two-year (even if you break it!)* transferable warranty.
