Product Description for the Traynor DynaBass 800H
What truly sets the Traynor 800 watt DynaBass 800H apart from the rest of the class is its versatile hybrid user selectable tube / solid-state input stage. The FET driven solid-state input circuit ensures a highly responsive and pristine clean tone, perfect for funk & pop styles. Switching to the tube circuit delivers an additional warmth and presence to the preamp section making the DynaBass 800H an ideal head for rock, R&B, blues and country players.
Innovative tone-shaping controls like Scoop and Resonance as well as a five-band EQ with semi-parametric mid ensures the DynaBass 800H user can find any tone they need easily.
The Scoop function sweeps from a flat frequency response through a mid-frequency dip at 400 Hz. As you increase beyond the halfway point on the control you begin to boost both the top and bottom end to your tone, in addition to further reducing the midrange level.
The Resonance control actually controls the damping factor of the amplifier’s output stage, and allows the player to take full advantage of the tone of a bass cabinet. When used with a high quality and responsive loudspeaker like the Traynor TC810, Resonance allows the player to dial in the exact response from their rig that they want to hear, anything from a tight and punchy modern tone to a looser, more vintage bass sound.
An aggressive footswitchable bass distortion with tunable drive gain can be added in parallel to a core clean bass tone using the wet/dry blend on the front panel. This continuously variable control allows the perfect mix of fuzz to be added to the core clean tone, ensuring the right amount of raw power and defined bass tone is always at hand.
A footswitchable effects return with front panel wet/dry blend control and a pre/post selectable XLR balanced DI output with ground lift ensures maximum flexibility on stage or in the studio.
A dual fan cooling system completely negates the need for heavier heatsinks. Well placed intake/exhaust vents allow the two cooling fans to immediately draw all extraneous heat away from the amplifier ensuring the amplifier will not overheat even under the most extreme live conditions.
