  1. Moouahwhahahaa! After many, many frustrating weeks of not having just that extra bit of dosh to spend on an amp, and MANY MANY auctions lost... I have finally ripped myself off, and won..

    A Trace. Elliot. AH250 GP12SMX head. Mmmm < creams >.

    It's a funny story how I ripped myself off... I had only meant to bid 360. Ha. I entered 630 and didnt bother to check! :crying:

    So, I'm paying £420 shipped for the head. All I need now is a 2x10 or a 4x10 and or a 15 Trace enclosure with original speaker and im SPENT!

    I freakin' love Trace. ;)

    The downside, is that it's a tolexed head, but I can easily carpet it myself with help from ma' pah.

    i#m so excited.. uh huh, uh huh, i wantcho, i wantchuuu. :hyper:

    dude, dont bother carpeting it - it's a head.
    that will be a lot louder than your typical 250 watt head. IIRC.
    have fun.
  3. oh i KNOW it will be louder! its a 530 watt peak! woot. Ive been playing thru a gp12 4x10 combo for gigs for a while, but now the band is picking up, im buying my own trace rig ;)

    i had originally planned on getting a 500 watt head (mwuahahah) but both auctions have slipped from within my budget! doh! :bawl:

    i can't wait to get this thing tho. :hyper:

    I know how you feel man, I love my Trace! The SMX line is absolutely awesome tone wise. Congrats and enjoy!

    I made me a another Trace purchase last night, a Quatra-valve 200 watt all tube head! :hyper:
  5. Yeh, Trace is awesome. mmmm. I'm hoping to get a 2x10 and then later add a 15! However, a 4x10 is acceptable.... :hyper:
