    Scored another Traynor YGL3 Mark III

    All original except for the tubes. But the replacement tubes were added decades ago. The power amp is sporting a quad of Telefunken EL34s (brown base, OO getter), and the 12AX7s include vintage GE and RCA. I'll be replacing the 2-prong power cord before playing more.

    Traynor YBA-1 amps, modded

    Hi. So the YBA1 is a very clean amp. I added a wee bit of gain. Just enough to get a bit of crunch.

    V2 Amp kit, anyone?

    So I posted a Caldera PCB for sale on my FB page, basically just to entertain myself during tough times. A guy who bought one needed other stuff for the amp, and so I basically supplied everything but the output transformer. And for fun, I started to put together an assembly manual for it...

    I thought I'd provide an update on this amp. The stock amp had two modes: vintage (three gain stages) and modern (four gain stages). The stock amp also had a front-panel Punch switch that added some gain by switching in and out a cathode bypass cap (kinda like structure/S switches on other...
