The current market conditions for US-made mid-to-high end amplifiers is still very difficult. This is unfortunate as there is a lot of truly great product out there. But except for a few marquee brands, interest is low, and the market is saturated with new and used gear at cut-rate prices. Many small amp builders now only go direct. For new brands, we offer Traynor and Huges and Kettner, both of which are built in Canada, and Little Walter built by Phil Bradbury in South Carolina, US. These brands offer the right blend of performance and features for today's market.
Yorkville Sound, the parent company of Traynor, makes many excellent products under the Traynor and Hughes and Kettner brands. We like to think of Traynor as the "Canadian Fender" and they offer complete line of combos and heads for both guitar and bass. From bare-bones "purist" amplifiers to full-featured heads, Traynor amplifiers are well built, attractive, and dish out excellent tone that is both affordable and gig-worthy.
