The Traynor IronHorse head is the perfect amp for players who need to take the controlled sound of a low power ‘lunchbox’ amp out of the studio and on to a live stage. Loud enough for almost any venue, the EL34 driven 40-watt all-tube design makes the IronHorse a true tone monster that delivers maximum versatility at club and concert volume.
The unique design of the IronHorse uses a cascode input stage using a low gain 12AU7 triode tube and making it run like a high gain pentode tube. This increases input sensitivity while offering lower noise and higher frequency response than any design using a standard high gain pentode tube. This boutique design trick creates the soon to be legendary IronHorse tone.
The IronHorse allows the player to radically change the tone of the amp by choosing between fixed or cathode bias modes on the output tubes. Fixed bias mode delivers higher headroom and tighter sound, while the cathode bias mode creates more compressed saturation and a completely different distortion characteristic.
Simple controls make it easy to find the ideal guitar tone. Basic controls include Gain, Bass, Treble and Master pots and a three stage mode switch mounted on the front panel. The Mode switch selects clean pure or solo tones. The pure setting bypasses the tone stack altogether, making the signal path from your fingers to the speaker as short as possible. Solo Mode is a higher gain footswitchable variation of the Pure Tone, again bypassing the tone stack and adding unmatched edge and clarity to your lead sound.

"Just got my Martin DCX1E guitar today -- what a beautiful sounding guitar. I had waited 30 years to get a Martin. I am so glad I found Musicians Buy web site on the computer and Mr.Chapman quoted me his best price on it, I couldn't pass it up. What other companies was charging just for the guitar, I got the case with mine for the same price. Thank you so much Mr.Chapman. When I called him on the phone he was very nice and helpful and I had all of my questions answered. My guitar was shipped to me well packed, no problems with it, and the shipping was super fast. I highly recommend Musicians Buy to all my friends! What a great company and fine people working there. -Hollis Jordan"
