Need help with a Trace Elliot.

  1. hey guys

    i bought a Trace Elliot gp12 smx, about a year ago. 6 weeks ago it gave up the ghost during practice. i dropped it off to a local repairer who is the authorised repairer for just about every single amp manufacturer. i just rang said repairman and was told that after 6 weeks he has concluded that the amp cannot be repaired because he has no service data for it.

    can anyone help me get some info because i would like to get this fixed. i quite liked my amp.

    cheers Rod.

    The SM series amps seem to come in 300W, 500W 1000W and a mono/stereo 500W/CH.

    Which is yours??

  5. its 500W, 12 band eq, tube/solid pre, solid power amp, and broken. i would really appreciate it if someone could help me find a circuit diagram or any technical info at all really.

    it is a GP12SMX

    cheers Rod

    Hi Anesthesia.

    I found this:

    Model Number : GP12SMX pre-amp

    (I had to save this .pdf to my computer's hard drive before I could open it. Please be sure that your machine's anti-malware utilities are up to date before downloading this, or any other file--or use Ubuntu. ;))
