    Just wanted to share which Traynor small block combo I decided on which is the SB115. I got a really good deal on a used one for 385 cad which works out to about 290 us. Should be here mid next week and will post results as I plan on running my Mesa Subway Preamp pedal into the aux input. It's the closest I can get on a budget to a real subway d800. I was able to noodle around in the store on a new one and man I can't wait. Had Input gain and master volume maxed out and could not believe this thing sounded like it wasn't even breaking a sweat..No mud,no harsh just clean awesome sound and tone.It is really, I mean really loud and sure it can keep its place in a rock band setting at jam or even small medium sized gigs no problem.Cheers and have a great weekend TB!!

    image. View attachment 1047640 View attachment 1047640 I received my sb115 today and plugged in via aux in with a 1/4" TS X 1/4" TS and sounded fantastic. I plugged in through the amp passive input with Mesa subway pedal and without as well and sounded ok but it def sounds best through aux in for sure.After noodling a bit I found my 1/4"TS cable a bit jonky must be loose wire so the only other cable I have atm was a XLR female X 1/4" TS so I plugged it from preamp out to aux in and works like a charm. I am so happy and although the Traynor sb115 internal preamp is actually quite clean the Mesa subway sounds more natural and articulate so I am far beyond impressed and very happy with the new setup. Now the hunt still continues for a nice drive pedal to accommodate the Mesa subway. @agedhorse thank you so much for your input on helping me get to where I am. Cheers!
