Amp lamps, all lamps ...
- 200 watt (4 or 8 Ohm switchable, constant power)
- 4x KT88 power, 2x and 1x 12AU7 12AX7A in preamp
- Active and passive input
- Equalo three bands with adjustment of the range of mediums
- 'Scoop' and 'Resonance'
- With output tuner button 'mute' for silent tuning
- XLR DI output Pre or Post equalo with ground lift and 20db pad
Its super easy when you have understood the basic principle of equalo:
- The gain is to switch between clean and drive
- Not to exceed twelve o'clock for equalo (adjustment 'range' of mediums depending on your personal taste), always cut the excess. It takes longer, but it frankly worth the trouble.
- I did not use the scoop / resonance, so no opinion. but it can color the sound of an original way.
- Master volume depending on the threshold of toleration of your ears, women, neighbors (in that order )
Quite appropriate to Metal (whatever style), the Jazz, Polka ... etc ... short, to everyone, if properly rule.
depending on the level of gain, we pass to drive the lens fat enough (depends, however, the output level of your bass).
I tested two pedals to drive on it: a DOD FX91 and an Ibanez PD7 PhatHead before the preamp in the effects loop, and as a preamp. The result is that the most convincing ... without pedal, pushing the gain.
Acquired on a whim in 2010, and a great opportunity (500 balls, including flight case!).
This is the ideal companion of my Kramer Travelling Headless (alu shaft, passive pickup), straight from the year '80. Sound and flapping in the cold and warm round sound, through all shades of drive.
I even took the chance to plug a passive bass China has 80 balls (which I also suffer the martyrdom of both hands and back), the intrinsic qualities of the amp sound relevent to an impressive manner.
This amp is against the ruthless precision of the game: the slightest hesitation on the attack of a rope shall mean at least as much a false note.
Of Anesthaesia Pulling Teeth (Metallica) has Hammer-Smashed Face (Cannibal Corpse), via Granite Wall (Bolt Thrower), to Bob Marley, and while straying on the Clo-Clo and Annie Cordy, the YBA200 -2 will face without flinching.
In short, if you need power (200W lamps, whatever people say, it's really a lot), the world of lamps you made the eye, and want to broaden your range of style, go for it!

fantobasse's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
All tube amp, 200 W into 4 / 8 ohms (impedance switch)
Lamps: 2 x 12AX7, 1 x 12 au7, 4 x K88,
- Entry passive, active, tuner, volume gain, equalize low / med / high + a knob for adjusting the frequency of mediums (range)
- An active section with two settings, master volume
- 2 output jack hp (parallel)
- Output option with di pre or post eq,
- A filter pad to reduce the output level di if too high,
- In and out for a possible loop effect,
- Reverse polarity for the buzz
- Boost Treble ...
The differences compared to the YBA-200 are the power tubes, and some ETAILS appearance.
Me, I turned the big logo in traynor plastoc and the original grid to offer him a black linen finish vintage (affixed to a rack custom made) sufficiently aerated surrounded by a white edging like a svt -cl ... it is beautiful!

Config fairly simple but a trick to know: after several weeks of tests not too bad, I was not really satisfied with the rendering of the beast ...
Acquired by taking the record of conscience, I groaned a remark about the EQ:
It said: Under the heading "south", the pots allow lamps to develop natural harmonics. Above this position is an addition of harmonics of the amp ... Wholesale
In practice, it gives this:
On-the traynor YBA200-2 if it is above the knobs at noon sharp, mid and low, it can hardly push the preamp over a quarter (yes), otherwise saturation type electric shaver ... And overflow of pervasive mediums. (Prefer an approach as explained below)
So go with a preamp volume to half (see slightly beyond), then adjust the equalization serious med and high, lowering from the twelve o'clock position on the frequencies that seem too forward!
Finally adjust the volume pot "range" to adjust the frequency range that suits your style and push the master ...
Ok, this is a reverse process to that which was usual, but I guarantee you that your sound will be totally different, powerful, profound, and the growl of the respondent.
I put 9 because it asked me a lot of efforts to accept it ...
And the active section bof, I prefer the full sound, but ok it can be used to obtain sound motown (knob resonant) or the reverse of the modern (knob Scoop)
but beware of the following
We here in the heart of the matter:
Past few weeks of wandering sound, where the sounds were neither good nor bad, I reread the instructions and as explained above, by folding a trimming by decreasing rather than increasing the equation, we obtains a sound sick, thick, with attack and precision (sufficient to trigger the treble boost if the strings are a little entammées) and it Partiya.
Dun power perspective, my group is like rock nag mélé key 80 ', with a drummer who hits and two scratch tickets bearing the heavy artillery.
I have a cabinet ampeg svt 410 he classic into 8 ohms, and I will pierce the mix with delectation ...
The frequency of singing, guitars and drums are met, the sound is sharp and thick, it structures the pieces and made the depth of the mix ... a treat
The power is really enough, I'm up to 3 / 4 and there is a bit too much, my rick'4001 is alive and fully deployed.
