    ***Lowered the prices***

    Gotta scrape cash together. No trades please, Paypal only please, CONUS only please.

    Trace Elliot V-Type all-tube head:

    My history with it starts in this thread: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=287961. I've since had it completely re-tubed - it had the original Trace-branded tubes in it. No longer made - as far as I know, they never got around to re-issuing these (I might be off the mark on that). Minor carpet blems, as with anything carpet-covered, but fairly clean and 100% functional. Manual, schematic, power cord included. I'm guessing on current value, since they're so rare that I can't look up other sale prices: $900 shipped.

    Two Bag End S15B-D's:

    One black, one red. Great tone, and LOUD. These are the big boys - Bag End's spec says these go to 35hZ with the port plugs out - I don't know if it's true, but I can say that I've yet to run out of low-end extention.

    The black one has pop-out casters (mounted on the back), and the older-style BE speaker with the silver dust cap. The red one has a minor carpet issue near one of the corners, but is otherwise in great shape. GONE.

    Not a ton of feedback on here, but all positive. My Ebay ID is cwagner20, with 100% positive feedback over more than 50 transactions.

    PM/Emails promptly answered.

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Although I'm not very good on vintage Trace, I think this is the pre-V4. All tube, and basically, or largely, the same as a V4, just was manufactured before Trace came out with the V4 name, but I could be VERY wrong.

    You are correct. Four 6550 tubes, just like the V4 but badged differently. Estimated output is somewhere around 225W, but this seems conservative based on my experience.

    Oh my. In my own city, even.

    I don't suppose you have any recording gear you're interested in trading for?

    If it makes any difference to any of you, I'll gladly vouch for takeout. We've done several transactions IRL, and he's a 100% stand-up cat.

    Bump for lowered price on the Bags. Ebay is probably my next stop if at least the Trace isn't gone by this weekend.

    How is this Trace still here? Those are super rare and from the reviews I've read, absolutely killer.

    Additional pics of the Trace have been requested, so I'll hold off on Ebay for now - but I need email addresses from everyone who wants them. I can't attach more than two. PM me.

    Pot sweetener: these have a weird output jack situation - one 1/4" and one XLR. Makes it weird to try and run two 8 ohm cabs... unless you have a single-male-1/4"-to-dual-female-1/4" parallel adapter... which I do. Which I'll be throwing in for the buyer.

    Really amazing cabs. Very efficient, very loud, very full. If I were not smallinating the rig I would be all over it.

    Amazing cabs. And the Trace ain't too bad either.

    Rated at 225W, but any Trace owner will tell you that this is an extremely conservative rating.

    "Raising the Dead" Bump. Bags are long-gone, Trace is still here. Trades I'd consider:

    - Apogee Ensemble plus cash from me.
    - GK800RB plus cash from you.
    - Apogee Duet plus cash from you.

    Throw offers at me, etc.
