    Price:
    300
    Location:
    Rhode Island
    Local sale seems to have bailed.

    The price of $250 includes a just-like-new Gator 3-space rack case with 1U vent. Add shipping if you're far away...
    In fine working condition, last of the Made in England Trace Elliot line. 250 beastly watts into 4 ohms, this head has been equal to any gig, any venue.
    Super-flexible/adaptable eq and sound shaping attributes, 12AX7 tube, blendable with solid-state. 2-band, functional compression, famous preshapes toggles.
    Comes with the SMX manual on dvd. I'll ship- on your dime, but I'll pack it to withstand Samsonite Gorilla auditions.
    Snatch this bad boy up! Hefty, muscly tones and more than enough volume to muss your guitar player's well-conditioned, salon-beautiful beard.

    Thanks for looking in!

    Deal adjusted, will look at trades... esp fretless bass, but an EWS Bass Mid Control could be a negotiation.

    You know this doesn't bump your ad? You need to hit the "Bump" button.

    Yes, sometimes I write "Bump" as a new entry anyway. It keeps this ad current in my "Your Content" list, easy to find...

    Trade ideas... need a cab for a practice space, hpf/preamp pedal, fretless bass (or just a fretless, unlined neck).

    Not tring to bust balls but isn't this a pre amp with no power amp?
    The front of this amp and TE calls is out as a pre only.

    This is a killer amp. Do not let the wattage rating fool you, it is much louder than many modern amps rated for twice the wattage. Trace rated their amps very conservatively.
    Slapper's delight and also one of the pre-set selectable eq curves is mean as can be with a P bass and a pick for playing rock.

    FYI British Audio is a great resource for Trace replacement parts too.

    Many of the older UK Trace heads have a note printed on the front panel identifying the type of preamp used. It does in fact employ a 250w power section (it's an AH250SMX, with the GP12SMX preamp).
    I understand that can be confusing...

    Thanks for this; I better understand.
    BTW, after having had a 350 SMX I can say that these amps seem to put out a lot more power than other amps with the same adverised output.
    In other words, it will play louder than most 250 watt amps.
