So I'm told the Traynor yba-3 is a secret of sorts. I've read it was actually the bassis for the ampeg SVT design. This traynor amp was apperantly "snuck down" to the states by some guy (the name escapes me) and given to ampeg to copy. I've read that ampeg in a sense just made it more powerful! It's supposed to be an amazing machine conservatively rated at a little more than a 100W. They say it's 2/3rds the SVT in volume and weight, like a mini SVT. I thought I would also indulge you in a neat little recording tool. The little 15W fender pro junior can give you a really great tone. It's all tube with only a tone knob, but can give a great tone and grind! Very clear and pleasing to the ears. Any other secrets out there?
