Trace Elliot Combo with tired speaker (I think) - advice??

  1. Hi all - this is my first message on the forum. It's great that I've finally found a place that caters for us groovey bassists.

    Anyway, the reason i found the site is because i need some advice.

    My Trace combo (1x15" Speaker) which has seen on average about one gig a week & plus jams etc for the last 8 or so years. It has been totaly trouble free which is quite amazing really. But I tried a newish laney 1x15" Speaker) in a rehearsal studio which wasn't in the best condition and it sounded loads better than the Trace.

    I think that the speaker is perhaps a little tired and i was thinking of replacing it. My problem is I haven't got a clue about speakers and i dont want my bass to sound even worse. The Bass amp sounds a bit muddy, and the low end is a bit farty when driven not that hard. EQ helps a little but it still doesn't sound right somehow.

    Well, looking at your location I gather your not in the US. ;) Contact the guys at GM Audio and they can hook you up with the correct replacement speaker.
