orkville Sound is a privately owned Canadian Company located near Toronto in Pickering, Ontario, Canada. Currently employing 265+ people, Yorkville designs and manufactures all of its products at the 150,000 square foot Pickering facility. Founded in 1963 in downtown Toronto, Yorkville was formed out of the back room of a music store called Long & McQuade. The repairman at that time (Peter Traynor) developed a Bass Guitar amplifier (the Traynor Dyna-Bass) that was rugged and could withstand rentals. Shortly thereafter, Jack Long started Yorkville Sound, a small company that soon had more than just bass amps. By the end of 1963 Yorkville was making P/A columns. After incorporating in 1965, Yorkville expanded its sales into the USA and soon after added a guitar amplifier (the YGA-1) and a P/A mixer (the YVM-1) to the line. Throughout the 1960's Yorkville continued to grow and become a serious force in North America for P/A and instrument amplification products.
