Yamaha amps

Picked this up from my great aunt who had kept it since '72. Awesome cleans and makes a great jazz amp. Presenting my Yamaha Fifty-112.

Let's see yours!

I've got an old Yamaha Bass BE-200 combo at an auction,,,70's era maybe?,
,, twin head, double input channels each side and a 300W powered cab....

it may have been used as a keyboard amp as it was in a lot with other keyboard type stuff.. there was a rhythm ace contraption as well..

it'd be loud I reckon...

I haven't explored it yet...

Count me in!

My first "real" combo amp was a Yamaha G100 212ii. Wish I still had it.

Currently have a G100 212iii, two DG80 112s, a DG60, and a pair of DG130 heads... Yes, I like Yamaha amps!

Recently ordered a THR5 from Musicians Friend. I played with both the THR5 and the THR10 at my local GC, and they sound as good or better than the DG80 112.

I've got the Thirty-112! Awesome for pristine cleans. I bought it used from my guitar teacher in 1982 for $165. It's never had a repair, and still works perfect.

I also have the Thirty-112, bought new back in my college days. As said above - super pristine cleans. Still plays well after a lot of years:)

I have a first series G100 head that I run into two JBL MI-12s. Wonderful full clean sounds with nice reverb and the best Tremolo ever. It is like a match made in heaven for my 1982 Yamaha SA-2000s.

Not my amp but the same model. Mine is just as clean.

Stupid me got rid of a G100 115 mint condition for $200 earlier this year. Fantastic cleans, but I couldn't lift it with my bad arm. I love Yamaha stuff, usually built like tanks.

^^^^^^

Those Yamaha hundred watt combos were mothers to shift. That's why I got the head.

Sorry to reignite an oldish thread but how great to know others out there share my love for old Yammy amps! I still have my YTA 25, the little stripey blue combo, my first proper guitar amp and my son just picked up a brown 40 watter off ebay for pennies.

Just snagged one of those for $85 a few weeks ago. Love the cleans and tones to be had from it.

Just grabbed an excellent G100-212 for $150!

Wonderful cleans, and I love having the preset volume switch.

Just picked up an old G100 115ii... The master volume pot for channel one is snapped off (far left), but otherwise it's very clean. Looks like Yamaha used these same knobs on a variety of amps over the years.

If anyone has the correct Yamaha knob they could sell me, I'd be much obliged.

According to the lady I bought it from, it hadn't been used in nearly 20 years. It belonged to her late father, and he hadn't used it since the early 90's. Seemed to work fine when I went to check it out, but the other pots were pretty scratchy too. Sitting for 20 years will do that. I'll have my amp guy clean the other pots and check the caps while he's in there.

Looking forward to trying my pedal steel through it. I had a G100 212ii years ago and foolishly sold it... I liked the clean sound, but the built in overdrive wasn't gnarly enough for me as a teenager... The 115 should be perfect for me now, as long as I don't have to carry it! Weighs a freekin' TON!

Mine looks like this, only cleaner:

I've got a G50 two ten.
Killer cleans. I use it for Jazz gigs.
Heavy sucker though...
Paid $75 for it off Craigslist.

My fifty 112 bought in '75 died last year. It would have been more than then the amp would have ever been worth to resurrect it, solder joints breaking down and trannies and capacitors giving up. She did not owe me anything, worked hard all her life, so was given an honorable retirement. The cabinet and speaker get joined up to my Frontman 25R sometimes to give a bit of extra oomph. Wish I could lay my hands on another one though the 50-112 was a terrific amp.

I remember liking them whenever I played one, but I can't remember how good the reverb is? The solid state reverbs on the Peavey SS amps I have used were a little lacklustre. SS amps are great clean but I think the fender tube reverb circuits are what really sets them ahead of the pack in the clean game.

I have a G50 210 . Thing has been abused but still works. The built in distortion is one of the most offensive things my ears have endured but the cleans are impressive.
