Anyone own a Traynor DG 30D ?

I found a good deal on this one. I don't know much about those however. Anyone has experience with SS traynor amps?

Thanks!

The Traynor DG30D was my first decent amp. I think I paid $300 or $350 for it, I can't really remember. I bought it before my ears really developed and realized how "meh" it was.

I quite liked the clean sound (mostly used it for high school jazz band), the distortion wasn't the best. Also, after I gave it to my school, after coming back to it a couple years later, the pots were pretty scratchy, and the speaker had a tendency to "fart". You had to turn the amp off, wait a sec and hope it wouldn't fart again, and turn it back on. I didn't really use the onboard effects, but the phaser was cool.

I bought an Engl Gigmaster a year later. The DG30D is an unimpressive amp in my opinion. I think theres better options out there for a practice amp, and many more options for a gigging amp.

Bummer. The speaker does fart after all. I did not notice the first time I tried it since you have to turn the master volume at least to halfway to make the speaker fart. However my little Da15 could not even put that much decibels.

You could upgrade the speaker. WGS speakers, for example, have a reputation of being nice and affordable.

Yea I could! Thanks for letting me know about the WGS.

However this is my bedroom amp anyway, and I don't feel like putting any money into a crappy amp.
