    I had no Idea that the entire Trace Elliot Line has been discontinued for some time. Such a shame! They were some of the absolute best amps I've ever heard in my life. It's unfortunate that Gibson was unable to/chose not to resurrect their excellence. Sad sad news. :(

    Uh, Peavey just bought them, they're now making them again and the Peavey team has 0 influence on them. Trace has returned!

    I've never played them so I can't comment but I believe they've got a whole lot of hype, hope they live up to it.

    Yep.. it's *been* sad for a couple years now, but it's about to get UN-sad in a hurry. You picked a great day to find out about this. :)

    Woah. That is really cool. Interesting. I've always liked the sound of Peavey products, but have always regarded them as "butt-rocker" amps, sort of like Kramer guitars.

    Either way, this is AMAZING news. This is really exciting! Thanks for the update.
