    I've been rocking my DB800 for close to a year now. Its really more amp then i've even come close to needing live since i also run a DI, but its sure nice to know that the power is there. The loudest i've run it was gain and master around noon into my Ampeg 410HLF and standing infront of it was actually painful. Especially when kicking on a BMS through some fuzz haha. Most of the time i'm running gain at about noon and master at 9 oclock. Its a beast but i would like to try the yba200 through one of the traynor cabs for fun.
  9. Question in regards to Traynor Tubey goodness:

    Is it the same 'Traynor' company that makes the YBA200 that has made all the previous YBA heads?

    My YBA3 sounds pretty different than the YBA200 i tried in a store a few months ago.

    I was just wondering if it was a simmilar sittuation as, say Sunn, Kustom, or Acoustic where it's only the same in the name...

    FWIW: this is NOT a bash... i thought the YBA200 sounded awesome. Just different...

    Nice! Looks like it's in great shape. About two years ago, I snagged an identical amp for $450 on ebay. It was just about mint and was loaded with real Telefunken EL-34's. I sold it to some metalhead kid about six months later. I regret selling that more than any other piece of gear, by far. I only tried it on guitar, and not into a cab where I could crank it. I really wish I would have played it through a nice bass cab.
  11. They are the very same company.

    Yep. Same company. It has always belonged to Yorkville Sound and Long & McQuade. The designers are probably different though. They're very different animals with the YBA-200 being more hi-fi.
  13. Awesome! Good to know! Yeah, hi-fi is a good way of describing the YBA200. Awesome, just different!

    @Destructobot: i got mine for $450 as well!! We alllll have those "i shouldn't have sold it" stories.... :scowl:

    Indeed they are. :)

    The 'II I gigged with for years shut down only once: during blackout.
  16. Since we've started a new thread, here's a shot of me and my first YBA-3 and YC-810 in 1969.

    The amp and cabinet were made in 1967. I remember paying $300.00 for it used in late 1968, which was a lot of money at the time. Notice the original steel dolly. It came with a large wing nut that screwed into the center of the bottom of the cabinet to hold it in place. Later models used velcro to fasten the dolly to the cabinet.


    This is my current 1973 YBA-3 and YC-810 rig. The YBA-3 has been fully refurbished and all 8x10 speakers in the cabinet have been reconed. It's just like new again! Not bad for a 37 year old rig.

    absolutely sick rig, I'm in awe.
    that is the nicest 2x15 I've ever seen. I own a lot of Traynor stuff and I've never seen a cab like that. thanks for posting that.

    Believe it or not, I got the Monoblock and the cab off ebay last January - $400 for the pair! It was in the twin cities and the guy wouldn't ship it.
