In relation to an earlier post reviewing an early 1970’s Traynor YGM-3 Guitar Mate, I came across an interesting set of videos on YouTube of how you can modify the YGM-3. I found this particularly interesting as I mentioned in my review I thought the amp was slightly bright at times. The modifications in the videos below shows YGM-3 users how to modify the amplifier, rounding off the high-end somewhat.
Personally, I haven’t the balls to do this but if you’re confident with a soldering iron, this could be just the ticket to enhance an already good amplifier into a truly great amplifier. Please note: all videos are courtesy of YouTube contributor “patfurlan”.
Video 1: 1975 Traynor YGM-3 is tweaked to improve more clarity and sustain:
Video 2: Second modification where the YGM-3 bandwidth is narrowed; less top and bottom improving the Mid Clarity and headroom:
Video 3: Third modification making final minor tweaks to turn this amp into a stunning amplifier for rehearsal, gigging and recording:
Thanks again to YouTube contributor “patfurlan” for producing these videos.
