Yorkville Sound began in 1963 in the back room of Long & McQuade, a music store on Yonge Street in Toronto. Peter Traynor was working as the business’s repairman and had been customizing amplifiers by using readily available components. Traynor developed a rugged bass amplifier that was more resistant to the rigors of the road and began renting this new ‘Dynabass’ amp to customers..
