Are you in the GTA? My amp tech is very good and reasonably priced. He works out of his house so overhead is low.
He knows Traynors. (this is where they were built after all)
I think he actually owns the same model as yours.
Yes, I am in the GTA.
But I've been thinking a bit since first posting this. I am moving in the fall, from a detached house into a townhouse. Because of the shared walls, I will need to be considerate of neighbours (my dog is going to have to learn to play more quietly!!!). So a monster like the Traynor doesn't make much sense, even if it dows have master volumes.
I am therefore considering one of two to options:
1) A modeller and a studio monitor (or two) as a speaker. That will enable me to get tones, from clean to overdriven, at any volume. I currently have a Boss GT-100 that I can use when getting used to modellers, and I can upgrade later. The problem is that I am a bit of a technophobe and don't want things to be too complicated.
2) A low watt tube amp that can be scaled down. Something like a Vox Night Train or an Orange Rocker 15 Terror. These would fit my desire for simplicity, but would they be as versatile as a modeller?
So I figure I should get the amp back from the tech and sell it for however much I can, and then choose one of the two options just mentioned. The problem is tha I honestly cannot decide which would be best for me.
