I have had two Traynors and struck out with both.....a 1972 Guitarmate that I tweaked to taste but it was just too clean....I didn't like the OD tone. Beautiful cleans, verb, and trem though. Next up was a newer Ironhorse head. Didn't like any of the modes. None. Cleans were way uninspiring and the dirt was too dark and bassy. I still want to try a YBA head. Phaez amps get mixed reviews. But man they sure look cool.
