    Trace Elliot AH250 head with 11 band EQ. Mark V model.

    Bought new in 1987 for over $1100.

    Good points:
    Loudest 250 watt amp anywhere, very flexible. Built like a tank. Little fish sticker looks cool with the black light on.

    Bad points:
    Built like a tank. The two little eq buttons gave out in the first year or so, you can still access the functions with the footswitch or the little box I made that plugs into the footswitch jack. (see picture) These are not standard switches so you'd have to accept the way it works now or hunt down the switches.

    Handle is getting beat up and has duct tape. A few nicks here and there. Other than that it works like when I bought it.



    It's about as loud as my Eden 400 but sounds quite different, I have the slip cover with zippered pocket as well. It's about 70 pounds so shipping will be a nice chunk (zip code 94501 if you want to look up rates, fedex ground likely).

    Trade bait would be small cabs or heads or anything shiny that catches my eye.

    I would really prefer a San Francisco area deal but will ship if I have to.
