Need some help from the UK!

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Jon R, Apr 25, 2002.


  1. So the Trace Elliot saga continues...

    Can anyone (maybe from the UK?) help me locate a good used Trace Elliot V-4, V-6, or V-8? I'm still in love with Trace and I prefer all valve to hybrid or solid state...

    FWIW... I prefer redheads to blonds too. :D

    The bass centre might have some not sure thought.
    They have stores in manchester (0161 834 2636), birmingham (0121 212 4954) and london (020 7265 1567)
    They also have a web site www.basscentre.com
    Hope this helps

    I have only seen two for sale (a V4 and a V6) in two years. I bought the V4. The V6 was going a while back for £400 which is $600 (approx).

    You have two problems buying from UK, one is the shipping, they are very heavy and two is finding a dealer with one who will ship to USA.

    A long shot is if you ever come over here to search the private ads and take it back with you.

    I was just thinking - another problem you may have is voltage rating. I don't know if it is factory set on the valve models or if it is user switchable. Mine is the SS model - I can't remember seeing a voltage option on the back panel.

    I was in Sound Control in Glasgow on Sunday. They have a V Type 300 head for about £599 I think! That;s the only V type Trace head I've seen in a long time!
