The Traynor Custom Valve 50blue (YCV50blue) is the latest addition to the all-tube guitar amp line. Originally designed only as a limited edition run, the demand for this re-voiced (and much heavier sounding) guitar amp forced Traynor to add it to the line for 2005.
The Custom Valve 50blue has been tweaked and tuned to be a much 'darker, Brit-sounding' guitar amplifier. Unlike the rest of the Custom Valve line, the YCV50blue is powered by EL34s in the power stage, giving it a little more 'attitude' than the 5881 (6L6) tubes used in the YCV40s and 80's.
Three Sovtek 12AX7WA dual triode preamp tubes provide real tube front-end overdrive in the Custom Valve 50blue. The presence control typically seen on other amps in the Custom Valve line has been removed from the YCV50blue and replaced with a new master volume control, giving the player more flexibility with the clean channel, and the ability to drive both lead and clean channels harder at a more livable playing volume.
The look of the Traynor Custom Valve 50blue has been changed to reflect its new attitude with an all new dark blue Nubtex finish and all-black hardware on the solid plywood cabinet. A full metal grille under the jet-black grillecloth protects the 12-inch Celestion Vintage30 speaker.
Like all amplifiers in the Traynor Custom Valve line, it's covered by Yorkville's standard two-year (even if you break it!) transferable warranty.
