Selling my rarely used- in studio only- Traynor Guitar Mate YGM3.
This is a cool, 70's all point to point tube amp ~ as it was built identically in every way possible to the original.
Read reviews. Get a vintage 70's amp without the vintage headaches (deteriorated wires, caps, 40 years of dust and scuzz) for same price-ish.
Looks new, works perfectly. And Yes, it's for sale
Hand Wired Vintage Re-Issue
Built for the player that refuses to compromise their sound, the Traynor Re-issue YGM3 recaptures the tone, warmth, feel and responsiveness of one of the classic guitar amplifiers of all time. Built using truly hand-wired point-to-point circuitry throughout, the Traynor YGM-3 uses only high-grade fiberglass insulated wire for all connections - no printed circuit boards or surface mount components are used.
Vintage Parts & Original Amp Specifications
Parts for the Traynor YGM3 Re-issue were sourced from the original suppliers and built to the original design specifications wherever possible. The paper bobbin transformers were recreated for the YGM3 by Hammond Canada, a source for Traynor parts since the '60s. Premium polypropylene capacitors, Switchcraft jacks and Accutronics reverb tanks are used today, just as they were in the '60s and '70s. The original supplier even painstakingly recreated the unique grille cloth used on the original YGM3 for the re-issue.
Vintage Tube Tremolo
A throw back to the day in age where almost every guitar amp had some iteration of a tremolo effect, the distinctive footswitchable YGM-3 amplitude bias tremolo can go from a swamp boogie to psychedelic with the turn of a knob, then dialed down for a truly unique and subtle jazz tone.
The Legendary Jensen Alnico Magnet Speaker
The Jensen P12Q Alnico magnet speaker produces the ultimate vintage guitar tone. A truly premium speaker made using a unique combination of Aluminum, Nickel & Cobalt, the three elements (AlNiCo) that gives the speaker its name. Designed to sound their best in a premium tone-box tube amplifier like the YGM-3, the 12-inch Jensen P12Q Alnico magnet speaker delivers warmth, character and a responsiveness ideal for that ultimate blues, jazz or classic rock sound.
