Im looking for a British sounding amp. With enough power to gig with. I like to play Classic Rock (Led Zeppelin, GnR, Ac/DC, Black Sabbath, Ozzy) with some Metallica from time to time. I was looking at a Marshall JCM 2000 TSL 601 used or a new Traynor YCV Custom 50 Blue. What do you guys think? Any input you guys can give would be great.

Thanks

See if you can pick up an old Traynor Mark II.

It's a Marshall. Straight up. It's a clone through and through.

You can find them for pretty cheap and they pop up a lot because we make Traynors eh?

That or an old Studiomate or the old Guitarmate.

The Traynor is the more sensible option. I would get the Traynor.

its not that, their not bad at all. but theres just a more people going with traynors on this one. vintage ones are incredible and give out amazing tones, and even the new ones can still make amazing sounds. their no where near as marked up as marshalls and might not give you as much gain as a marshall, but the tone will be just as good.

I think the YCV 50 is a better amp than the TSL 601. If you can get the Traynor new for the price of the Marshall used, that would easily be the choice.

No

Vintage Traynors are easily on par with vintage Marshalls, and modern Traynors kill modern Marshalls (like that's even hard to do).

traynor hands down, I have one and I can get any tone out of it. Ive also played with marshals and ive had way too many crap out on me playing live. I remember one time my band band played a battle of bands hosted by long and mcquade and they had one those special expensive signature marshals, plugged my guitar in, did not work at all, they had to run to the store get another one, JCM 2000, didnt work either, Got another JCM 2000 worked but I really didnt like the tone. Sounded muddy. My friend bought a 50 watt krank chadwich?(i think thats what its called) and the traynor > the krank. Seperate eq, cleans sound awesome, more gain than you could ever need and the reverb adds a nice touch to it in the end. Go with the traynor, cheaper and better IMO.

how does the traynor compare to the Orange Tiny Terror? Besides the volume difference and clean headroom?
