    Traynor YCS100H Custom Special 100H 100W Guitar Amp Head


    Truly independent channel control is a hallmark of this born to burn guitar amp!

    The Custom Special 100H'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 YCS100H amplifier 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 YCS100H has two 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 YCS100H 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.

    What I like:

    - Multiple channels you can footswitch
    - 30W or 100 W.
    - Reverb on a head unit... yeah!
    - $999 is a great buy if indeed this is a good-sounding, quality amp head

    It's an excellent amp if you're looking for a 3-channel amp. If you want something a little lighter and want to go the 2-channel + boost route the YCS50 is awesome too (head or combo).

    Glad to hear you've checked it out!

    I'll have to demo it sometime. The other interesting thing is it has outputs to go to a PA or headphones. But it probably weighs a ton

    42 pounds...that's nothing! My PV Butcher head is around 65 LBS. !!
    I have a feeling along with the Kustom Double Cross, this thing is a total beast! Durability would be my only concern.

    I almost got one of those a couple years ago. I hear they're pretty sweet Plexi-ish amps.

    This looks intersting to say the least. Lots of cool features. I don't see where you could change channels with anything other than the included footswitch though - bummer

    Doesn't support MIDI if that's what you're going for Rob. Funny enough, the footswitch actually uses a MIDI cable, but that's just a cable. Pretty smart, though, to use something that can easily be replaced if it breaks.
