Orange AD200 MK3 or Trayor yba300

  1. So after months of reseaching tube bass heads it comes down to 2 the Orange AD200 or the Traynor yba300.
    I play mostly punk rock and hardcore in my bands but enjoy a range of styles I need something with headroom but also something that can get gritty

    Voice your opinions tell me your thoughts oh wise people

    In my opinion: The Orange is more settled to one tone, the traynor has a wider range of tones.
     
  3. The yba 300 has more headroom but might have a less attractive distortion.

    By the way: the track(s) in my signature are recorded through a Traynor YBA-300 - One channel post-Preamp DI and a microphone in front my Ashdown ABM 410

    I say out of the two I would go with the Orange as it gets some good grit in the tone and sound amazing for punk/hardcore style
     
  6. Easy really.
    Versatility - power, clean headroom, powerful eq, nice drive, - TRAYNOR YBA300
    Less versatile but great at its 'thing'
    - less power, less clean headroom, great overdrive- ORANGE AD200

    +1 Yup.

    And might I add, if you are considering those two heads, I suggest you also throw the Fender SB300 into the equation. :cool:
     
  8. Yeah I have looked at the super bassman but the orange and traynor are more in my price range
