Does anybody here have a Traynor YCV80?Its gets very good reviews.I'm thinking about buying one.Any body have pros and cons?
Well, I've got the YCV40, which is basically the 40 watt combo. I think it's a great amp, but what style are you going for?

I think it sounds great for metal, acoustics, prog, and general rock area, but it's not the best for blues and jazz stuff.

How is the overdrive on the amp I've heard great things about the dirty/drive channel but no one nearby sells them so I would have to drive to test one out
I play classic rock,led zep,hard rock,G and R,Metal,Metalica a little blues and some of my own stuff
the YCV80 has massive headroom, you would be better off with a YCV50 Blue or YCV40.

The YCV50 will definitely suit your needs although you might need an OD to kick it into metal territory.

The only thing I was worried about with YCV50 blue is how can I record too my computer with that?The YCV80 has a hookup for headphones and to record directly to the computer.If I could record directly to my computer with the YCV50 blue I would get that
