Description: Traynor DarkHorse 15HEDIT

The DarkHorse 15H all-tube guitar head is destined to be an instant classic. Fifteen watts of all-tube tone in a sub-compact head and cabinet combination specifically designed with the travelling musician in mind.

Simple Gain, Bass, Treble and Master controls allow easy access to the perfect amp sound on stage or in the studio. A Tonestack switch allows for either Brit or USA voicings or the “Pure” mode which bypasses the tone stack entirely, delivering a mid and overall gain boost allowing for the most direct signal path possible between your fingers and the speaker.

Selectable output power switches between two separate output stages – a higher headroom 15-watt pentode stage or a 2-watt triode stage for increased drive. A combination of 8 and 16-ohm outputs allows the DarkHorse to drive virtually any cabinet configuration.


•Delivers Full 15 Watts in Higher Power (6V6) Mode
•Selectable Low Power 2-watt (12AU7) Mode
•Simple Gain, Bass, Treble & Master Volume Control Set
•Brit / USA / Pure Switch for the Tone Stack (delivering a Mid Boost and Overall Gain Boost when in Pure mode)
•Uses Hand Selected 12AX7 (x2), 6V6 (x2), and 12AU7 (x1) tubes
•Versatile Speaker Outputs allow Dark Horse Head to drive 1 × 16-ohm,
1 × 8-ohm or 2 × 16-ohm Cabinet Configurations

  • Pros: Acoustic jam-along heaven on the lower output modes.Great fendery cleans on usa setting.There is alot of good sounds on each mode if you can dial it in.Sounds crisp and clear with a tele spankin'. Good natural Break up and perfect speaker choice.
  • Cons: Not a whole lot of gain.Not really designed for that. Transformers do get a little hot after a long session.Thte big toggle swithches can accidently get turned on in the supplied gig bag.Make sure to plug in your speaker cable before power cable.
  • Experience: I own it
  • I really like this amp with the matching cabinet for low volume use.Add the right pedal and it...
