Traynor Unleashes the Custom Special Half Stack

- Press Release

Yorkville Sound creates a new flagship amp for the Traynor line of guitar amps with the introduction of the Custom Special 100 Head and YCS412 cabinet.

The YCS100’s true three-channel architecture offers full control of each and every channel. No shared EQ’s or pseudo ‘channels’ here. Every channel on the Traynor YCS100 Custom Special Head has individual gain and volume controls, a full three band EQ, boost level and its own effects return and reverb settings.

Powered by four EL34EH’s the Traynor YCS100 has two user switchable power levels, a true 100-watt class-AB mode, and a more manageable 30-watt class-A configuration ideal for recording or rehearsal. Four 12AX7A’s make up the all tube pre-amp stage. To ensure maximum versatility, the Traynor YCS100 has an in-line pre-amp send / power amp return for in-line effects, and a side chain effects send with individual effects return level controls for every channel.

The YCS100’s master section includes a Master Volume, Presence and Resonance controls. The unique Resonance control, first introduced on the Traynor YBA200 all tube bass head, allows the player to dial in the exact amount of bass response from their rig that they want to hear.

Innovative features like speaker compensated XLR Direct output and Headphone jack ensure maximum versatility, a solid plywood cabinet construction with all-metal chassis protects the Traynor YCS100’s tubes and wiring, ensuring years of road-readiness and unmatched reliability. A master ‘lead boost’ button (the fourth stomp on the custom four-button footswitch) controls an overall master lead boost level that kicks any channels up for solos, as well as instant access to any channel with a single step… no more tap dancing for a live sound.

The Companion Cabinet – Traynor YCS412 - The Celestion loaded Traynor YCS412 has been designed from the ground up to be the perfect companion for the Traynor YCS100 all-tube guitar head. Solid birch plywood cabinet construction delivers unmatched tone and ensures a long rattle-free life. Built for the road, the North American made YCS412 has an all-metal grille to protect the speakers, integrated all metal bar handles and removable casters.
