I had a 1x12", sold it to a buddy and got another one.  The build quality is very solid.  I currently have a Mesa/EV speaker in mine and it sounds great.  Will get more in the future.

Okay, eat your hearts out, guys.

I was at the Denton Flea Market yesterday and I found an old Traynor YBA-1 "Bass-Master" 50 watt tube head, in perfect shape - for $20!!

The sound is similar to the Marshall JT45.  Great for guitar or bass.  They're currently going for $400 to $600 on ebay.





God, I love garage sales and flea markets.

COOL amp Harvey!!

When I hitch hiked back from Florida at 18 years old, I landed back in my home town and landed a gig playing in my first country band. I plugged straight into a Traynor 50 watt tube head and a 2x12 box. NOTHING on the floor for a year. It sounded great! I love those. Mine looked different than that though.

NICE. 20 bucks!! Cool Cool  Cool  Cool

The early YBA-1's had chicken head knobs which were later replaced with siver insert knobs.  I don't recall seeing one with the red knobs or red nameplate, but I think it was a standard model.

Used it last week and it was perfect for the sound I wanted.  Alex plans to use it this week for some of his sessions.

You guys got me beat, I found this little Yamaha GA-10 practice amp for $10. It didn't work when I got it, but I found a couple of loose wires and replaced a missing fuse, and now it works just great. 10 watts, and a nice little Yamaha speaker. It's loud enough to tick off the neighbors, but also can put out a nice clean sound.   It may not be the deal of the century, but hey, it's a nice little practice amp for $10, and okay for me. I still need to get some new knobs for it, but that's just peanuts.

I got this guitar at the same time, and I really like it. The guitar was extra.

BTW - I'll check out that 906. The e609 black-face is a favorite of mine for guitar cabs, but they're getting really hard to find now.

-Lance



Dude!
shhhhhhh.
no they are terrible and everyone should send them to me for proper disposal.

Seriously, I remember when the first E609 came out and everyone talked smack about it being "no MD409". It was a bit more expensive at first, but 6 months after it came out you could get them at fullcompass for $150.  One of my fav guit amp mics ever.  The later silver 609 doesnt have the low mid magic of the first gen E609.
I need to try the 906 to see if it's like the good 609.

BTW the best marshall rhy tone I ever heard was a un modified jcm800 50 watt head and matching 4 12 slant box.  It was winter '96 at baby monster in nyc.
get this: It was covered with factory green tolex. Must have been a aniversary edition or something. I check pawns out for these amps all the time, never seen another one. Bob Quine was playing, that had a lot to do with the sound too.
