    Im having trouble finding a Trace Elliot GP12 smx preamp, if they even made one. Ive seen the GP7 and 11 but not the 12. What other preamp would come close in that sound? I would think the GP11 but havent played one. I have the Trace head but would like to find that Trace sound in a pre. Thanks for your help.

    i've heard the Ashdown RPM-1 spoken in the same breath as the TE preamp. has its similar growl, but that's about it. still, the RPM is a killer preamp.

    btw, try listening to the samples on Vanselus & Josh's very cool, www.basstasters.com

    lots of preamps to choose from.

    I have the ashdown rpm-1 evo II and eden wp100 pre. The ashdown isnt the same at all. Good sounds in there but it really doesnt sound like a trace. Whith the eden I can get close but there is something missing arround 1.3-2.6 khz and 60-100 hz. What ever it is it sounds GREAT when I use the trace head with berg 322 and nv610. It cuts through and has pounding lows in the mix. I just need more power. Thanks joker for your reply.

    You might want to check out an Ag DB680.
