Traynor YGL-3A guitar amplifier. According to the Traynor website, these were made from 1971 to 1979, and produce 80 watts of power at 4 ohms. They were commonly used with a 4 x 12 cabinet, or a stacked pair of 4 x 12s.
This is in good shape for the age. I got this in the contents of a storage trailer that I bought. It was dusty and dirty, so I blew out the dust, and wiped down the outside with some Armor-all. I plugged it into a Marshall mini-cabinet, had my friend plug in his Strat, and fired it up. It works! There was some initial crunching from the pots as we turned it up, but everything seems to work. (The pots should probably be cleaned.) Tremolo and reverb both work, both channels are good. Sounds great-I can only imagine what it would be like screaming through stacked 4 x 12s!
The bad news: the internal fan only has three blades-it should have four. Also, after about four minutes of running, there was a "hot dust" smell coming from the amp. That would probably go away with more cleaning, especially the tubes. You might be able to get a replacement fan; alternately you could remove another blade so it would at least balance. I didn't run it long enough for the fan to come on. (I'm assuming it has some sort of heat sensor to turn it on-if not, the fan doesn't work.)
This is a very cool, well built amp. Who knows-it might have been used by some great 1970's guitar god. (Who was "Scott" who had his name stenciled on the bottom?)
Thanks for looking-good luck with your offer!
