funkygroovyrhodes's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Keyboardist for live"

Traynor K-4
Amplifier transistor with a channel 2-way stereo tube (OD +)
300 watts.
Connection jacks, plus an entry with RCA inputs plus XLR microphone
No effect outside lights and DO.
No effects loop. So I put 8 slt

UTILIZATION

Config super easy. No need for manual. One branch, we equalize the sound and go up to the beef.
The basic sound is very good. After emppêche nothing to fix it all to work out the details.

OVERALL OPINION

For months.
I had KB Laney, Roland. I tried the Motion Sound. All these amps fonctionnenent well but they certainly do not respond to keyboard player looking for a stereo solution.
With the Traynor was 4 stereo inputs. A back entrance scene. And DI outputs stereo sound to return to the mixer in concert. So very easy to manage the stereo.

I'm very happy. Qq details yet. This amp does not blow. You really put all the gains to the bottom to start hearing a buzzing noise.
The fans did not notice. The beast is not so heavy (as much as a 120 KB Laney, in fact it seems lighter)
Side look, it was a little afraid of buttons plasqtiques and I found prettier picture than in real. It requires good anyway. Next to an Ampeg, it will not go for a dwarf ...

UTILIZATION

No need for manual adjustments are simple and intuitive.

This is an amp designed for keyboards. The sound is clear and sharp, but the bass lacking.

OVERALL OPINION

I bought it second hand but in mint condition for € 600 3 months ago. I wanted an amp stage more compact than the large cube Roland I had previously. For use in orchestral variety, it is plenty powerful, but it does not reproduce very low bass sounds I program my home on NS10 monitors, however small, and I heard with former Roland amp. This is surely the consideration of a very compact amp. The piano sounds are clear with plenty of attack but sounds synths lack depth in the bass.
However, this is a good compromise and a reliable amp for stage and keyboards, but I do not exclude its replacement by a more accurate material later.

Traynor K-4
Quick énnumération:
-Keyboard Amplifier 300 Watt (200W woofer and 2 x 50W for the midrange and treble left and right) Woofer 12 "Eminence mids 4.5" (x2) and acute Celestion 2.5 "(x2)
Solid State amplifier
Preamp-Tube or Solid State (2 x 12AX7, left and right) ** tube preamp only available on channel 1
-5 Channel stereo at all:

Channel-1: 2 Stereo Inputs 1 / 4, 3 band EQ, preset Voicing, the choice tube preamp / solid state, tube overdrive, volume control and overdrive Overdrive Boost
-Channel 2: 1 input Stereo 1 / 4 and 1 XLR, 3 Band EQ
3-Channel: 1 stereo RCA input and 1 stereo input 1 / 4,
-Channel 4: 1 Input Stereo 1 / 4 (entrance at the rear of the unit)

presence of light to said peacker on each channel

the back is retourve channel 4 *** with his knob assigned a ground lift, a subwoofer output, headphone output and a connector for plugging in a pedal that permanently active overdrive Channel 1 (Lead) and an outlet XLR balanced line out (DI Box to say goodbye!)

No internal effect if it is available on the overdrive channel 1.

pound weight of 57.3
*** Channel 4 is not sent through the outlet line out of the amp, very useful to act as a monitor or in a situation where you want to hear something that you do not send in the PA mix . Brilliant for the stage!

UTILIZATION

standard configuration for a keyboard amp. everyone will recognize. well separated, well displayed, a button / knob = 1 function.

its side, it does not autand Lower some amp (KB300) as speaker has only 12 "but your keyboard has never been faithfully restored and has never sounded so clear. c ' is mainly owed to the presence of 2 mediums and 2 tweeters.Super comfortable with any instrument (Piano / Rhodes / Wurli / Organ / Synth / Guitar Acoustic and electric / acoustic instrument / drum power) except exeption bass guitar makes it worse.

Manual Clear / innutile sufficient for me! keyboard amp has no great secret to anyone!

OVERALL OPINION

So, I use it for 3 months now, I have tried many device Keyboard Amplifier (KC Serie roland, Roland Cube keyboard, Behringer, Peavey KB100, KB300, KB15, New Series K4 and K5, Yorkville etc. ..) and then you say it's the best keyboard amp available on the market. not only as a keyboard but amply makes a great PA for the home or in local practice, one can plug in all or almost complete hyper connectivity. if you're a solo musician, you can plug in keyboard / guitar / mic and support and even provide enough power for small and medium-sized benefits.

Keyboard side, as I said the sound of your keyboard will never sound so pure and your Rhodes / wurlitzer / organ will be warmer with preamp and overdrive lamp.

what is good is that it also looks like a wedge, which is very useful in practice and on stage, no more support to make the amp Diagonnale

Also interesting is that you would not need DI Box on stage thanks to its Balanced XLR outputs.

otherwise the keyboard, makes a wonderful acoustic guitar amp (same as autand These AER, Fishman Solo Amp etc ...) Honestly, it is as good as what's in guitar sound better now, it's very surprising, tried in store if you're lucky, you'll be amazed! Also great with any acoustic or electronic instrument. super computers and also to amplify any household appliance at electric guitar maison.une is also at ease. However, this amp is not a great bass amp. (Unlike KB300)

Its low in the lower it can easily be remedied with the subwoofer output and I must say that it is not so bad and more than enough for normal use.

The Stereo is noticeable but should not be extremely remote from the device, because the speakers are prochent one another, yet it is very rare to have a true stereo keyboard amp, so at this point it is innovative (maybe Sound motion could compete, I do not know because not available from me)

The bill is salty, but certainly it is 150% penalty is an amp you Aurre Lifetime Made Solid (maybe not like a tank as the KB300 but good)

side weight, 57 pounds can parraitre lot but it is not. for me passing a KB300 which weighed a ton, I parrait a pen, note that it has two nice handles on each side, what happiness!

Another point is the first keyboard amp I Find esthetic Beautiful! knobs and chrome corners, nice color grille and Black / Grey, Light Blue.

Note also the high quality components, knobs / lights / speaker (Celestion and Eminence is still not seen for the keyboard!)

Value for money: you pay and we have for our money, do not hesitate a second, highly efficient, highly versatile and flexible.

Tand year ago that I was looking for the Ultimate Keyboard amp and I've finally found then yes I would do this choice without hesitation! it makes my Nord Stage EX 88 more pure than ever and is the ideal solution for home / / repeat scene. I was lucky to find it secondhand at half price and would not hesitate to pay full price if it was stolen! these amps sound quite rare and little-known but worth it.

mejazzz's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" The tough, beautiful, very good sound"

Traynor K-4
Amp 200w rms (Amp Class A / B) + 2x 50w aidus 2x50W medium, with three integrated amplifiers.
30cm woofer first, and each side of the small speakers for treble and midrange.

Operates in stereo at short range, but the effect is not super audible, but it makes far better than the chorus leslie or mono amp, for example.

Front:
Channel 1 = 2 x 2 stereo + eq (bma) + boost pedal operated (gain + distortion) and tube preamplifier (switchable) to warm the sound and it works pretty well.

Then two other channels 2 and 3, including a stereo EQ with XLR, RCA and the other.
And channel 4 independent monitoring, ie it does not come through the mix, ideal for use in back stage.

In the rear.
headphone jack (connected, it cuts the volume of the amp), subwoofer jack mono output jack mix DI XLR type, channel 4 for stereo monitoring.

I guess he had more room in front, so they put the knob on the gain of channel 4 (channel monitoring) behind, it is not practical in concert, but once settled, can not expected to have to touch it.

(... Unless you play with musicians "impetuous" lol, who serve their ego rather than the music and spend their time turning up the volume to exit mix.lol)

All entries are adjustable with Gain knob.

Remember to press the power socket! it is rather hard.

No effect, apart tube preamp for channel 1 and distortion.

23kg.Conception good sturdy look of the 50 amp, good big stuff, though with a hefty sound of Hell ... and not very heavy. But more need for my synhtés mixers and I can plug my voice live.

Lots of power in reserve for small scenes and very sharp and you'll finally have good bass and a piano sound good in return, it does not forgive an amp with a low-end piano. Here, do not worry, I rediscovered the sounds since they come out of this amp.



UTILIZATION

Super simple, but manual useless fact, super sound input.

I thought the sound of the piano NordRack 2 was rotten, but on this amp, it comes out pretty good.
The piano sounds are very demanding in terms of amplification, if the amp sucks, sound sucks, I just realize it.

The sound is top of Rhodes and clavinet sound is much more interesting with this amp.

first attempt in concert on Sunday, I go back to the points.

slap it when you cut even the gain to zero, but nothing serious.

I like limiting the entry level, integrated with the beast, so no burn out an amplification stage.

Sunday, May 9, I'll try it with everyone on it (3 votes, 2synthés, 2 guitars) and I come back here.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 3 weeks.
I have not tried other model, I scoured all the French sites (few) and they in English.

What I like best is the stereo inputs and tube preamplifier stage boost + distortion pedal for solos.
The sound of hell, including Rhodes. I had to buy back and I finally opted for this little gem to get a good return in concert.

I also like that it is resolutely "keyboard" of the amp is very well thought of in terms of connectivity.

What I like less weight, but that's normal when we want tough, and the fact that when I turn off that slap.

It is a bit expensive, a priori, but I do not see anything better on the market in terms of weight / power / sound quality (motion sound, air, not bad, but heavy bulky and hard to find in France)
