With the Custom Valve 40 already getting rave reviews in the all-tube combo
amp market, Traynor has responded to the demand by expanding the Custom
Valve guitar amp line with the addition of the 2x12 Celestion loaded combo
Custom Valve 80 (YCV80).
Designed and manufactured by Yorkville Sound, the new amplifiers offer more
power and new, exciting features while maintaining the reliability and value
Traynor users expect.
Two new tone-shaping controls give players unprecedented tonal variety for
nearly any vintage tube tone. A 'Scoop' switch on the lead channel adds body
for much heavier leads while the 'Expander' switch equalizes certain
frequencies on the clean channel to create crystal clear new rhythm sounds
often simulating an acoustic-like tone from an electric guitar.
Traynor's new DynaSound direct output makes the amp sound much more like a
mic'd cabinet for recording. DynaSound speaker simulation is on both the XLR
direct line output and the stereo headphone for a more authentic headphone
tone. A speaker defeat switch is provided for silent practice or silent
A parallel effects loop with separate input and output trim pots for better
overall effects control and a series effects loop (or loop through) between
the tube pre-amp and tube power stage give the performer more flexibility
over the signal path than found on other amplifiers.
The Custom Valve 80 is vintage Traynor with black vinyl covering and
chrome-plated corners, all plywood construction, and a classic front-mounted
Traynor logo. The rear mounted control panel is easy to access, yet recessed
