    That's unusual: Mini practice combo hosting a 200w amp (!) and offering 1/4" speaker out for an external cab (!!).

    SB106_PR.
    From description:

    At an unbelievable 9 by 12-inches and weighing in under 15 lbs, the 200-watt Traynor SB106 combo uses a studio monitor quality 6.5-inch speaker in its solid plywood and metal cabinet to deliver unmatched tone for close monitoring on controlled stages. Fully featured for professional bass players needing a small, lightweight but powerful amplifier solution, the SB106 offers both Passive and Active ¼-inch Instrument Inputs, selectable Pre or Post EQ XLR DI Output for direct connect to front-of-house mixer and an additional ¼-inch Speaker Output to drive an additional extension cabinet when necessary (4-ohm minimum).

    Built with the practicing musician in mind, the Traynor SB106’s rear mounted ¼-inch headphone jack defeats the internal speaker for private rehearsal. An 1/8th-inch TRS Auxiliary In jack also on the rear of the amp allows direct connection to any music source making the SB106 your ideal practice companion.

    The same goes for Carvin...

    I've been using the head from this combo, an SB200H, for several months now as a practice amp and it's a wonderful amp. Can't say enough good about it and hope the new cab does it justice. Ken

    BTW, for someone wanting to use the SB200H head independently and keeping it safe the Gator Cases "G-Mixerbag 0909" fits it perfectly: http://www.gatorcases.com/p/210122-2270/g-mixerbag-0909

    They do have distribution in the EU, France, CR and Italy. I'm in New York (Upstate) and there are no stocking dealers near me either. Traynor Amps

  6. I'll be moving in the not-so-distant future and I have a keyboard which I've had in its case for most of time I've been at our house. This amp may become my keyboard amp (I was going with the small Ampeg). Pricing will likely win this battle.

    That looks like their SB200H amp inside.

    I like it! I can see this being useful on wedding gigs. Should be enough for the cocktail hour and then plunk it on top of a larger cab for the reception.Knowing Traynor it should be resonably priced too. My only wishes would be 1/4 aux in instead of 1/8 and speaker bypass so it would be possible to get the full 200 watts to another cab.

    edit: didn't see hifibass's post before my posting this. I wish they had of made it so the head could slide out and unplug from the 6.5" speaker.

    Interesting ... did they have anything new in the way of cabinets?

    SB200H owner manual has been updated with some SB106 info. Looking at the block diagram, seems that the internal speaker is bypassed when you plug another cab, meaning you get the 200W out.

    Haven't seen any announcements...yet. NAMM hasn't started, they might keep some surprises for the show...

    While it doesn't look like the head slides out, the speaker unplugs when you use an external cab according to the block diagram I found in the updated SB200H Owner's Manual.

    That is interesting and makes it a bit more versatile.

    I would like to see an 800 watt amp (latest icepower) released and re-release of their 112 neo.

  17. I always keep a 2x10 at home so having SB200H might be come in useful. But now I see this combo's likely to be more expensive the Ampeg 20-25 watt amp (the 108?) I was thinking of getting at around $120 Cdn. I'll have a wait and see attitude.
     
  18. I like it! Now, if they'd just make a version of the Neo 115 with vintage cosmetics and grill cloth, I'd be happy.

    Well, international shipping is expensive in Europe, even for stuff that would just go on a truck and be driven on the road.
    So "buying blind" aside, importing this will unfortunately not be a cost efficient move.

    I think the Ampeg vs. Traynor question is a bit "apples vs. oranges". 200 watts built by Traynor in Canada (with a two year transferable factory warranty) vs. 20 watts built by ??? in China (warranty not stated in Owners Manual, says "call us"). They're selling "remanufactured replacement speakers" for the Ampeg on eBay for $18.50...... Not confidence inspiring even for a $99 amp.
