very good. amp very loud and excellent specs. great vintage tones from it and Canadian-made quality. it is a great amp for classic rock sounds but not so much new-age music like metal, hardcore, shred, or punk. it just doesn't have that much distortion on it. if you want more distortion check out the Custom Valve 50BLUE also from Traynor. it has EL34's in it which give it a harder hitting distortion and is more for the metal type music still vintage style, but more so than the 80 watt. also 80 watts is a bit too much, unless you are gigging weekly that's too much for bedroom level.

I have the YCV40 WR and I love it to death. Best tube combo I've ever played. 80 watts seems like a lot unless you're playing frequent, large gigs though. You may want to consider moving down to the 50 blue or 40 just to save some money. They are still loud as hell.

Traynor make excellent amps, especially considering their relatively low prices. I have a Traynor YCV50 Blue and it's an amazing amp. I strongly recommend it, or any of the YCV series.

The YCV80 will still be very loud, even for that. When I was playing in a jazz band, I was using a 75 watt SS Randall (not my amp, the band directors amp). We played in front of around 300 people usually, and the volume never went over 7 (usually it stayed around 5). However, that's mostly because you barely hear a guitar in a jazz band (especially over horns). You could deffinately get away with a YCV40 or 50 for crowds that size. Although, I still encourage the YCV50 or YCV80 because of the features they have over the 40.

dude 80 watts tube might be an overkill, my friend and I played a talent show at our schools gym and there was probably 1000 people there with the students, faculty, staff, and parents and his 40 watts tube was almost too loud, i had to hook my 30 watt up to the p.a
