    I've been listing to Demo's of the blues breaker by Marshall on youtube lately and boy they sound freaking killer.

    I'm wondering if I should sell my Vintage traynor classic 40 watt all tube amp 2x10 for the bluesbreaker, Or would I be a dumb**** of all time by doing this?

    or consider trading in your traynor ycf40 for the traynor YCF50blue. I started off with the YCF40 and played it for about a year and then someone showed me the YCF50blue. I immediately sold off my 40 for the 50 watter. After selling off my amp, it only cost me about an extra $100 to upgrade and I am very happy with my ycf50. That traynor is alot of bang for the buck. Good chime on clean and nice mild distortion. It and my marshall dsl 50 head and I cover a pretty good amount of tonal ground.

    You might want to also run it by this Lady before you make your purchase. She has a good segment on her show called 'Can I Afford It?'.

    Hey wait a minute. :evil5: Though back to topic, do these YCF50blues sound anything like a good tube driven Marshall? Is the Traynor a good amp? This YC50blues sound like the ticket.

    Of all the Traynors I've played which is a couple including owning a YCV20WR for a couple of months, I think the YCV50Blue is the best sounding amp they make.

    [/quote]Only reason I'm asking.

    Because when I hit the over drive button on my amp and my gain up to 7 It doesn't sound very GOOD at all

    but if I turn the gain down to say 3-2 and leave the over drive button on it sounds good.


    What could be wrong with it?

    Thats just how non YCV50Blue Traynors sound. Thats what I hated about mine, the distortion sounded really harsh and thin.
