Anyone think the traynor yba200 is ugly?

  1. Nice! I bet it looks even better in real life though, especially on a dark stage.

    Nah, they look very cool in a retro-industrial sort of way.

    I jammed through a friend's YBA200 rig. Great tube style growl and warmth, and it seemed quite loud for 200 rms. I'd like to buy one, but I still have a moratorium on buying new gear.

    :hyper: :help: :hyper:

    Nice! That is the first I've had both that quote and my carpet thrown back to me in the same sentance. I am impressed! :D

    Hey Tom, I clicked your link to check out your Blog (Gear For Sale) and was prompted for a password. Obviously I don't know it, so I had to use my task manager to abort my IE session entirely just to get off your page since I was stuck there on the password screen and couldn't close it or anything.

    So anyway.... thanks for making me lose the post I was about to put up (I usually run multiple windows at a time). I'll not make the mistake of checking out your gear for sale again. :bag:

    Wow, that is the first I have heard of this happening. I am sorry about that. I'll look into why that happened. It shouldn't have! Has anyone else every had this problem with my blog?

    Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Again, I apologize.

    Tom.

    The Traynor looks fine. I agree about the Mesa, on the other hand. Its dog-ugly! Luckily it sounds great and hides in a case when not in use.

    It's look reminds me of the Kern 1p-177 (i think that's right)....

    The grey facing and chicken knobs do it methinks.

    Didn't you know that "the 3rd rule of improving your amp's tone" is to make sure it looks cool? Everyone thinks a cool looking amp sounds better.

    "The 5th rule of improving your amps tone" is to put a boutique brand name on it and charge TONS of money for it. Then everyone will REALLY think it sounds great. :p
