    I have a friend selling a Trace-Elliot Hexa Valve head. Does anyone have any experience with these? I am a little gun shy of Trace Elliot but it sounds really REALLY good... Whaddaya think? :meh:

    NO! They are absolute garbage and you should tell me where it is so I can go get it and trash it! :eyebrow:

    Actually, dude, they are one of the best tube amps ever built! It's 380 watts of pure tube power with a Series 6 preamp!

    All I can tell you is that it is a very rare amp to find and if you don't want it I'm sure there are atleast a dozen guys here that would jump on it!
     
  3. Does your friend work for UPS by chance? I see that their customer service center is located in Moncton. That very well could be the Hexa that UPS damaged when Jugghaid shipped to me. There aren't too many of these heads floating around any more, so I would snap it up if I were you... or PM me the details and I will buy it a second time. :)

    If you or Jugghaid has the serial number to that amp, it'd be interesting to check it against this one just to see if it's the same one.

    I wonder what UPS does with that kind of stuff......

    Interesting.. I'd like to know how much that one goes for on Ebay. The one I am looking at, the guy wants 1100$ CDN. (890ish USD$) Sound fair?
     
  15. I'm in but the reserve is pretty high.

  17. This one won't be a bargain. From the pictures this does not appear to be the Azola/BassGreaser/Jugghaid HexaValve which had some UPS rash on it.
     
  18. From the seller's auction: "I will end the auction early for the first offer over $1000.00 U.S.D...". It's all yours, Tom! :)
