    By far the most amazing bass head I’ve ever owned—a real workhorse—if you can’t get “your sound out of this amp—it probably doesn't exist!!!

    AH600 Bass Amp, featuring the famous GP12 SMX Preamp.

    100% UK made—back when Trace produced their best gear.

    600 Watts (1,200 peak) English Ratings tend to be very conservative, head sounds much much louder.

    Amp comes packed in a Calzone Flight Case


    GP12 SMX Preamp
    Tube and Solid State Pre amp sections, you can run in tube, solid state, or blend
    Active/passive input switch
    2 pre-shaped sound switches
    12 band graphic equalizer
    Equalizer Volume control
    Low and High Compression
    EQ Balance
    Effects Loop
    Black Light) looks great on stage

    Can be run
    Bi-amped, or stereo (2-300 Watt channels)
    Bridged 600 Watts
    Cross over frequency control
    Foot switch input
    Effects loop mono
    Effects loop stereo
    Balanced DI pre EQ
    Balanced DI Post EQ
    Left and right output jacks
    Tuner output

    Has additional features and functionality that I’ve never used.

    Amp is an 8+ cosmetically (some surface scratching of the tolex)

    Sounds great. A pleasure to gig with

    I’m no longer gigging and getting too old to haul around a large rig.

    I can offer excellent web, as well as EBAY references.

    Asking $650 + UPS

    Feel free to email me with questions or offers.

    Add this head to the 2X15 cabinet I have listed for a dynamite bass rig!!!!!!

    I have it's smaller brother (AH200, also UK made) and can attest to the fact that Trace's do sound louder and better than you'd expect by looking at the ratings. Bump for a really good amp.
