The Celestion Vintage30 loaded Traynor YCS412 has been designed from the ground up to be the perfect companion for the Traynor YCS100 all-tube guitar head. Solid birch plywood speaker cabinet construction delivers unmatched tone and ensures a long rattle-free life, even when played at the volumes this cabinet is expected to produce night after night. Built for the road, the North American made YCS412 has an all-metal grille to protect the speakers, integrated all metal bar handles and removable casters.
A versatile wiring scheme allows the Traynor YCS412 to operate at 4 or 16 ohms mono, or as a 2 x 8-ohm stereo configuration for use with any stereo guitar preamp / power amp combination.
Made famous in the 60's and 70's, Traynor Tube Amps were a hit among both professional and hobby guitarists, and were known for their affordability and great tone. And they were tough as nails!! Legends abound about co-founder Pete Traynor's rigorous Quality Control measures that, at times, involved dropping things from the factory roof¦ if it didn't survive the fall and still work after, it wasn't up to spec and had to be reworked some more. The legends are true, and although Traynor doesn't make a habit of throwing guitar amps off of the roof anymore, they still build them to that high level of standards.
The runaway hit that is the Traynor Custom Valve series sent engineers back to the drawing board to answer the demands of devoted followers¦ users who demand the high quality tone, construction and affordable price synonymous with the Traynor name. They stepped up to the challenge and answered the call with the Traynor Custom Special series.
The Custom Special series made things bigger and louder. For one it features the first 4x12" speaker cabinet that Traynor has made since 1973, not to mention being the first three channel, 100-watt all tube guitar amp that they have ever produced. Not for the meek of heart, the Custom Special series can run the gamut from crystal clear rhythms to heavy crunching leads, Classic Rock to Modern Hi-Gain Metal and everything in between.
But does it go to 11?
Designed by musicians for musicians, Traynor Custom Special amplifiers are built for maximum versatility but are still simple to operate. It's always easy to get a great tone from a Traynor amp, and with the Custom Special series, they made it even easier by moving the controls to the front and adding an array of tone sculpting options like "Scoop", "Bright" and "Modern" voicing switches, "Resonance" and "Presence" controls, and yes, with the addition of a Solo Boost knob, these amps truly do go to 11. On the YCS100 alone there are no less than 9 different voicing switches, separate Reverb and effects loop level controls on all 3 channels, global Resonance and Presence controls and a user definable Solo Boost control that brings the amp to 11¦ on all 3 channels no less!!
The DynaSound direct headphone and line level DI output makes the amp sound much more like a miked cabinet for recording. DynaSound speaker simulation is on both the XLR direct line output and the stereo headphone output for a more authentic headphone tone. Placing the amp in Standby mode will silence the output to the speaker cabinets, while keeping the headphone jack active for silent practice or silent direct recording.
The Custom Special series is up to the tough standards set out by Pete in 1963, marrying those high quality standards, familiar vintage style logo, and "chicken beak" knobs with more modern features like tough, all-metal grilles, bar handles, corners, removable casters, black Nubtex covering, all plywood construction, and of course comes with Traynor's famous two-year (even if you break it!)* transferable warranty.
