Somebody did a nice job on those schematics!
I used to work on a lot of Yorkville stuff so I have a few contacts with the corp.
If you want to post some pics of the guts we can speculate about the parts that look original but don't match the schem. :)

Thanks g1, but oops, too late...
I decided to strip most of the circuit card and start over.

The mods done were fairly extensive and some original parts moved around to accommodate the mods.

I'll put up some pics when I'm all done with attempting to re-create the circuit/layout.

Our band used to play in Ontario a lot, they seemed to like us there.  A gig in Chatham I liked.

Canada had a huge import duty on guitar amps and PAs. like 50%.  SO Canadian bands used Traynor a lot, as it was home grown.  I saw a lot of Traynor over there. I liked Traynor.  Roomy inside, and built like a tank.

Traynor the company was always supportive.  Always ready with schematics or parts.  And I always felt you got a good deal of equipment for your dollar with them.  Can't go wrong with Traynor.  If you will, they were like the Peavey of Canada.

What year(s) were you playing in Ontario?

I've always liked Traynor gear.
They sure seemed to be one of the "good" companies.

Played a lot of high school dances and some bar gigs in Ontario in the 1969-1973 era.  Sarnia, Windsor, over to Chatham, down to the Lk Eire north coast.  I particularly recall playing the William Pitt Hotel in Chatham.  The band was Universe.

That's cool Enzo.  8)

I'm assuming you were a cover band playing what we now call "Classic Rock".
Any originals?

Nope, just playing what was hot on the radio.  Though we did have pretentions.  Our guitarist thought he was Jimi so we played things like Voodoo CHile and Foxy LAdy.  And of course Stairwell.  But we also plaid Allmans and some Yes.  I recall a nice medley of Long John Baldry's King of Rock and Roll with Elton John Take Me to the Pilot.

We did have an anti-war protest set of all originals, complete with costume changes and lighting effects, but it was not part of our bar act.

Stairwell?
Is that a song or a band?

What instrument did you play in the band?

Long John Baldry's King of Rock and Roll... man I haven't heard that for ages.
Loved the intro to that song (Conditional Discharge) on the LP.
I think I still have the vinyl around here someplace...

It was the era of Zeppelin too, so everyone had to do a version of Stairway to heaven.   I always call it Stairwell to Heaven to be ironic.  I guess now 40 years later, my cultural references do not reach everyone.
