Well, it's new to me! I'm picking up a early/mid nineties Trace V-type! Thanks to CS and others for their advice and knowledge about these amps -- I decided to get it. And the cool thing is that this is supposed to be the amp that Pat Dalheimer used in recording Live's album "Throwing Copper". Now whether it really is or not I don't know. The guy told me the story and it is definitely possible and it's not affecting the price, so hey! Who cares, if it is cool, if not oh well, I still got a nice amp. Just thought I'd share!
