The Traynor Custom Valve 20WR answers the need for guitar players looking for superior sounding all-tube tone in a smaller, yet still feature loaded, lower-powered amplifier.

The Traynor Custom Valve 20WR is perfect for the studio or for any gig where 15 tube watts is more than enough power, but full functionality is required. Unlike competitive amplifiers in this class, the YCV20WR offers the discriminating player two discrete footswitchable channels with true independent gain and volume controls on each channel. A master three band EQ, effects loop, as well as an internal spring reverb are all standard equipment. Additional controls include bright switch on the clean channel and boost switch on the lead channel.

The YCV20WR is a “Class A” power amplifier driven by three 12AX7A’s and two EL84’s and features a Celestion “Greenback” G12M 12 speaker for classic tone.
