  5. Sorry Steve, I've only just noticed this thread. Congrats on your TE purchase - I hope you enjoy it!

    As you may know I'm a big fan of Trace gear - although I'm not too familiar with the Commando range. I believe that the build quality, reliability and sound will be up to the high end standard - you juts won't have as much power or quite as many optional extra goodies in your amp!

    Have fun with it!

    anyone else?
    do you think it will be safe to run it at 4 ohms?
    is there anything i can do to make it run that?
    if it has a thermal protection circut won't that save it from fryin?
    if i run this head to a 410 cab it would it be louder than my hartke 2000 head (running at 8 ohms) so 120 watts.
    i haver heard that there ratings are higher than they advertise. is this true?

    when are you supposed to get yours?
    they aren't even posted on the site anymore.
    maybe they sold out before they got to my order nad decided to send me the 410 combo!
    or anything really. maybe a better bass head or bass!
    when did you order yours?

    damn! I missed out. First on the AH150 now this... I doubt there will ever be another deal this good. Does anyone know if this marks the end of Trace Elliot? Or are they just relocating in the US?

    I ordered one also. How can you go wrong for $99? I'm sure the head will work into a 4 ohm load as that is pretty standard for Trace.

    Anyone get theirs yet? How is it? Stats?
  14. I@m reasonably confident that they will work at 4 Ohms - my 500 watt head does, I would imagine that all of their output stages will be optimised for this impedance!

    i got it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    first off. it was made in 98!
    two screws for the transformer came out!
    i picked it up and heard something rolling around.
    i found out how to take it out. it has four plastic caps on the bottom. then four screws under them.
    then it just slides out. i found them and put it back together.
    it is big!!!!
    it sounds great!!!
    and i really think it is as loud or louder than my hartke! and it sounds awsome!!!! way better than that hartke that i am getting rid of tomorrow!
    it looks awsome sounds awsome awsome price!!!!
    you could not go wrong with this thing!!
    my dad played on it and he liked it alot.
    i have only had it for a hour or so now
    bu ti am going to mess with it and play it.

    man i am so stooked!!!
    and i am getting a fretless jazz tomorrow!!!
    what color tho? black or the new sage green matallic?
    o well.


  20. Another happy Trace customer - I wish I could get a sniff at those prices! I think it comes down to you either love Trace or you hate 'em, something to do with the sound - I love 'em!

    As for your Jazz Fretless - Black is pobably a 'cooler' colour, but the Green might stand out nicely. If it were me - I already have 2 black basses - I'd get the green one!:)
