    40 watts of tube amp power!

    I've never heard a hiss on any tube amps that I've played on. Even on a half cranked Twin Reverb, its my single coils that's doing the hum. But then again, Ive had not much experience on them as all my amps have been solid state and dead quiet. Probably a sign of old tubes? or the electronics inside need cleaning/inspection or something.

    Hope you find what you are looking for! just be patient, but then again, good things always come right after you bought something. LOL

    Another reason to exercise patience

    I never played that Traynor but it certainly looks like enough for just about anything

    Traynor has some great stuff
    I think it would be a great choice

    I just found a used Traynor YGL1...again it's in Halifax...an hour's drive away...and the guy is asking $500...that seems to be the price everyone is asking for their amps around here..
    I'd really like to get a Vox AC15...they sound pretty sweet

    Maybe ask if L&M has a used one in the system? In my opinion if you really want a particulr amp, why settle for something else?

    They might check
    You won't know if you don't ask

    Which is the lesson from my fretless bass
    I asked & they had what I was looking for
    If I hadn't asked I wouldn't have it because they aren't made any more
