Indeed, the Trace Elliot V-type is one of the holy grails of high powered tube bass amps, and if mine was ever stolen or broken past the point of repair I'm not sure I could go on. So I thought it would be fun to see where all the Trace V-types are. Supposedly there are about 50 V4s (including mislabeled V4s as just "v-types"), 100 V6s, 25 V8s, and who knows how many 300Hs, 600Hs, and V-type combos! So let's see who's got 'em, and maybe we can find them all! Show your V-type and share your/it's story! I'll start! When I was 9 years old, I bought a copy of Jamiroquai's "Travelling Without Moving". Stu Zender's tone was so nasty that I not only switched from guitar to bass, but for the first time, I began researching what gear someone was using. I had never heard of it before, but several different sources claimed he was using a Trace Elliot V6. They seemed to be REALLY hard to find in the US and cost thousands more than the rig I was using at the time. But one day, I knew I would have it. And sure enough, almost 13 years later, I got my V6.
