The Traynor YCV50B is another variation on our popular YCV 12″ based combos, but this particular amp enjoys getting dirty. Originally released as the YCV50Blue, this recent revamp of the amp is a dark and menacing all-black tolex combo with black grille cloth to boot. Hand selected EL34 power tubes are the key to the YCV50B’s gritty identity, and the tone of the all-tube circuitry is enhance with the addition of a Master Volume and a single Celestion™ Vintage 30 speaker.
