    I'm looking at a Yorkville BassMaster 100. From what I can tell this is the older style (just looking at the pics). Looks like the newer ones have more of a metallic grid covering the speakers, this one more of a black mesh.

    Anybody have any experience with these amps? Any opinions? I've found some reviews of other Yorkville amps but not this one.

    I've tried all of the Yorkvilles and owned a couple. Still own the Yorkville 50 that is my second amp at home for teaching.

    The 100 has more power obviously and a 15" speaker so it sounds louder and a bit deeper. But it's not a gigging amo if you need to play with loud guitars and drums in any sizeable room. Go to the Traynor 200 or bigger for that. For the price and what it is the Yorkville 100 is a good amp. It'd be nice for playing with an acoustc group and at home practice or maybe practice with a rock group in a very small rehearsal room. Yorkvilles are very reliable too.
  3. I have one and it's great I use it with my band (a 4 piece metal thing) and I can here myself pretty well over the guitars, drums and PA but I haven't tried it live yet

    Good solid amps. The older ones with blue carpet have black mesh metal speaker grilles. The last generation of them have the silver metallic 'grid' covering the speaker. Actually they no longer make Yorkville Bassmaster amps, they are now called Traynor Dynabass & are pretty similar. And yes, if you want to gig/jam get the 200w version.
