7 Day Trial on all amplifier purchases at Gollihur Music7 Day Trial Period on Amplifiers and Speaker Cabinets

We know that it's tough to buy new gear over the Internet. So purchasers have a seven (7) day trial period during which they may return the amp in new condition -- NO QUESTIONS ASKED! -- for a full refund, minus all shipping costs and a small transaction fee to cover credit card processing. Call or email us first: returns must be preauthorized; a restocking fee applies if the unit is not returned in new condition.


We're already big fans of the Traynor Small Block amps - the 10" and 12" combos have become best-sellers, due to their light weight, great sound, and reasonable price. As you may have read on our site, the gear we sell has to pass the "Mark Test" - meaning, if we wouldn't use it ourselves, we won't sell it. It takes an amp with particular character and the right technical specifications to reproduce the acoustic sound of an upright bass. And the Traynor SB110 and SB112 Combos have the goods.

Now Traynor brings us the new "head only" versions of the Small Block (SB) series combos. If you've already got some gear, now you can get the same transparent sound with a speaker cabinet you love. The heads, like the combos, are ultra-compact and lightweight. So it's hardly going to break your back. And even though it's made in North America (Canada!), the price of either head isn't going to break the bank, either.

With 200 watts of clean power, Passive and active inputs, four band eq plus an expander*, a Speakon output along with an XLR D.I.(with ground lift), mute switch, headphone and tuner outputs, you've got all the pro features.

SB500H

This slightly larger model bumps the power up to 500w, and has the extended feature set of the SB112 combo; a little bigger, a couple of pounds heavier, yes - but it can put out more power and has a bit more of the features that folks find handy; the headphone and tuner outputs move to the front panel, there's a limiter and a clip light for better monitoring and control of overloads, and the separate gain and volume knobs provide more control over gain structure. And still, the 2-year no-nonsense, "even if you break it" warranty. Rock on!

Traynor * OUR TIP concerning the "Low Expander"
  • For best sound with the upright bass, turn the "Low Expander" control OFF. As in, all the way to the left (not at the midpoint.) This control "shapes the tone of the bass by extending the low frequency and reducing the mid frequencies (around 400 Hz)." That creates an unnatural "scooped" sound with exaggerated bass response - and while that can sound cool for electric bass guitar, it detracts from the neutral tone character that better serves the sound of an upright.


Note to International Customers:

The Traynor amps are designed and configured for use in the USA and Canada (110-120v mains power). They do NOT have the capability to switch to 230-240v operation.
